– “In this Magic Quadrant, we evaluate the strategy of application infrastructure vendors that can play the single-supplier role for all the technology components needed in shared SOA interoperability infrastructure projects,” according to the report. Further, “we have noted the emergence of a new type of market, which is defined by the requirements of a particular type of IT project, rather than by the taxonomy of vendor offerings. Buyers in such markets are not looking to invest in a grand, all-encompassing application infrastructure technology stack; instead, they're looking for a vendor that understands and supports the kind of project requirements they face.”
MuleSoft's Mule ESB is a lightweight, powerful open source enterprise service bus (ESB) and integration platform that allows developers to quickly and easily connect applications together and in the cloud using SOA principles. With over 1.5 million downloads and a user community of over 2,500 enterprises, Mule is the world’s most widely-used open source ESB. The recently released Mule 3 further distinguishes Mule as an innovator in the SOA and integration space, with a set of capabilities called Cloud Connect that dramatically simplify the integration of enterprise data with SaaS and cloud-based applications and services.
“The market continues to move away from the heavyweight, complex enterprise infrastructure of the legacy proprietary vendors to more lightweight, lean and cloud-capable products like Mule ESB."
- Greg Schott, president and CEO of MuleSoft
“We believe our placement in the Visionaries quadrant is a great affirmation of MuleSoft’s vision and a reflection of the tremendous impact that Mule is having in the market. We are pleased that Gartner recognizes us in this way. Our priorities continue to be leveraging the power of the open source community for innovation and recruiting the best possible talent to help grow our company.”
