MuleSource Positioned in the Visionaries Quadrant in Leading Industry Analyst Firm’s 2009 Integrated SOA Governance Technology Sets Report

SAN FRANCISCO – June 2, 2009 – MuleSource, the leading provider of open source service oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure software, today announced that it has been included as a “Visionary“ by Gartner, Inc. in the March 2009 Magic Quadrant for Integrated SOA Governance Technology Sets.1

Mule Galaxy is the SOA governance tool that development teams actually want to use. Providing a full complement of SOA governance, registry and repository features – including service and artifact management, governance, lifecycle and dependency management, as well as application deployment management – Galaxy makes the lives of development teams and administrators easier, not more difficult. Leveraging a RESTful interface based on the Atom Publishing (AtomPub) protocol, Galaxy seamlessly integrates with existing development tools and processes, helping to improve collaboration and productivity of development teams with no need to learn complex new processes or protocols.

“Traditional ‘top-down’ approaches to SOA and governance have failed, mainly because they require developers to learn complex new protocols and adhere to new processes“, said Greg Schott, CEO of MuleSource. “Today’s successful solutions should integrate with existing processes and be easy for development teams to learn and adopt. Mule Galaxy is pioneering this new pragmatic approach, and it’s great that Gartner recognizes us.“
