SAN FRANCISCO, CA – June 14, 2012 – MuleSoft, provider of the world’s most widely used integration platform, today announced that it has been named to the 2011 SD Times 100 List in the APIs and Integration category, marking the third consecutive year, and fourth year overall, that MuleSoft has received the award. SD Times selected MuleSoft because of its innovation in integration as well as the company’s continued commitment and contributions to API and developer communities.
The annual SD Times 100, published in the June 2012 issue of BZ Media’s SD Times and on SDTimes.com, recognizes industry leaders and innovators. The SD Times editorial team, with nominations from the publication’s readers, selected winners with a focus on each nominee’s demonstrated ability to advance the art and science of the software development discipline.
"The software development industry has always been competitive, and this year's difficult horse-race showed that there's more than one way to thrive in challenging economic climate," said Alan Zeichick, Co-Founder and Editorial Director of BZ Media's SD Times. "When calling the winners of the 2012 SD Times 100, the editors carefully considered each organization's products and services, industry thought leadership, and reputation with enterprise development managers. Thanks to companies like MuleSoft, software developers always know the winning ticket."
The SD Times 100 recognition reinforces MuleSoft’s momentum over the past year in the cloud and on-premise integration market. The company announced a record quarter in Q1 2012, achieving an 109 percent increase in bookings year over year. This success was driven by new customer wins among major companies and key SaaS vendor partnerships added in Q1, including Avalara and Zuora. Additionally, the company reported a strong customer renewal rate of 95 percent and increased its industry-leading customer satisfaction rate to 97 percent.
“We are excited to have won the SD Times 100 once again, and it is particularly notable that this year we were placed in the APIs and Integration category,” said Ross Mason, CTO and founder of MuleSoft. “As the number of open APIs explodes, organizations are faced with the overwhelming challenge of integrating them to support their business. MuleSoft is leading the charge in solving this problem and enabling the API economy, and this award is a testament to that fact.”
