Salesforce acquires MuleSoft

Posted on Wednesday 21st March 2018 10:00

MuleSoft + Salesforce (logos) - Salesforce acquire MuleSoft

Salesforce have been rapidly expanding their business capabilities and reach recently, forming new strategic partnerships with the likes of IBM, Dropbox and Google to name but a few. However their latest move is clearly the most bold to date. Making the largest acquisition in its history, Salesforce have agreed buy MuleSoft in a deal valued at $6.5 billion (£4.59 billion).

 MuleSoft Press Release Announcing The Deal

MuleSoft released an official press release “Salesforce Signs Definitive Agreement to Acquire MuleSoft“.

“MuleSoft provides one of the world’s leading platforms for building application networks that connect enterprise apps, data and devices, across any cloud and on-premise.

MuleSoft will power the new Salesforce Integration Cloud, which will enable all enterprises to surface any data—regardless of where it resides—to drive deep and intelligent customer experiences throughout a personalized 1:1 journey.

More than 1,200 customers, including Coca-Cola, Barclays, Unilever and Mount Sinai, rely on MuleSoft to change and innovate faster, deliver differentiated customer experiences and increase operational efficiency.”

It’s great news for everyone here at Influential Software, UK MuleSoft Partners and long-time CRM Saleforce consultants. We think MuleSoft is a great fit for Salesforce. This deal is about integrating customer information across all channels, but particularly unlocking that information from legacy systems. It means more investment and yet more rapid development of the partner products and services we provide our customers.

Integrating Customer Information And Unlocking Legacy Systems

The acquisition comes a year after MuleSoft went public and spent the year increasing sales, with Q4 in 2017 seeing a 60% jump on the previous year during the same time period, as MuleSoft rapidly expands it’s global reach. However, this deal is primarily about the functionality and capabilities MuleSoft will bring to Salesforce, rather than the potential revenue.

The core of this deal is about integrating customer information across all channels, more specifically unlocking that information from legacy systems.

“One of the consistent themes we hear from CEOs is a frustration, if you will, and a yearning to unlock data from legacy systems,”
Keith Block, Inc. vice chairman, president and COO, is quoted by Light Reading [9] as saying on a conference call with financial analysts Tuesday afternoon discussing the acquisition.

“Data locked in their legacy systems is holding them back,” Block said. By unlocking that data, “they will be able to make smarter, faster decisions,” and provide highly differentiated, customized customer experiences. Unlocking that data is essential to digital transformation”, he said.

Anypoint Platform: API’s And Integration

MuleSoft offers a cloud service called Anypoint that allows developers to connect different apps together within an ‘Application Network’ connecting cloud, Internet of Things, mobile, on-premise and legacy systems. The Anypoint Platform allows enterprise integration and apps to work together and share data, in a simple to manage and endlessly scalable solution

“For example, healthcare providers need to be able to deliver personalized care by unlocking data stored in electronic medical records, ERP systems, cloud applications and proprietary systems. For financial services, nearly 90% of IT spending is now focused on compliance, maintenance and operations, leaving little room for innovation. And the US government has been working on modernizing its system for years. Unleashing data in legacy systems could be a significant opportunity for every industry”. Block said.

The underlying drive for the acquisition is Customer Relationship Management and will mean the Anypoint Platform will be used for a new Salesforce Integration Cloud, although there are no official roadmaps published as yet. It is clear that MuleSoft will remain a vendor-neutral platform for information integration.

Influential are pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with Microsoft migration specialists Metalogix, further enhancing our Microsoft portfolio and ensuring our clients an array of cutting edge SharePoint and Office 365 solutions and expertise.

Metalogix: Move, Manage, and Protect SharePoint and Office 365

Metalogix solutions move, manage and protect content that lives within and around Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange and Office 365.

They have learned a lot along the way, having seen first hand the struggles businesses have constantly moving content across collaborative environments, locally and in the cloud. How the battle between human resources, technical and business priorities, even networking logistics, can push the limits of project management and delivery.

Influential-Metalogix solutions bring flexibility and scalability to project planning and delivery, enabling even a single administrator to accomplish more during migrations.

From company intranets to secure document management systems, on premise and in the cloud, they continue to be at the cutting edge of scalable enterprise solutions and have helped make Microsoft current world leaders in this field.

However, it’s not always straightforward for Enterprises to fully leverage Microsoft products. It’s here where trusted Microsoft partners, with vast industry knowledge and decades of experience, can ensure your business gets the full value. This is particularly true of SharePoint and Office 365 environments and migration.

As well as vast experience, Metalogix bring to Influential SharePoint clients their range of bespoke applications including:

Influential Takes The Cake – Charity Christmas Bake Off

Posted on Friday 15th December 2017 12:59

Influential Software's Charity Christmas Bake Off 2017

Once again the development teams at Influential’s Maidstone HQ are creating quite a stir. Things are about to get a little tasty, as our monthly bun-fight gets a dusting of cheer for a Christmas Charity Bake Off.

On Monday the 18th the baking gloves are off as our coders become contestants, developers prepare to devour, and support teams show their sweet (and savoury) sides.

The competition begins at midday, where the spread of cakes, pies, biscuits and pastries brought in by our teams will be put to the taste test. Anyone wishing to be a judge or those who simply cannot pass up a tasty treat can then make a donation to sample the selection vote for their favourites.

Serving The Community

While there are always plenty of software development projects for our teams to get their teeth into, the monthly competition offers the chance to show their lighter, fluffier sides. It also helps raise awareness for local charities and events, and this month we are proudly supporting the Peggy Wood Foundation.

The charity was set up almost forty years ago to raise funding for life-saving equipment to treat cancer and leukaemia at our local Maidstone Hospital. The charity also raises funds from their shop on Mill Street, Maidstone, where they have been based for almost 30 years – and took the name of Peggy about ten years ago in tribute to Peggys decades of work and dedication to the cause.

We’ve no doubt our teams will rise to the challenge, but who will whisk away the Bake Off title and who will crumble? It’s all or muffin!

Update: Mince Pies Are A Feast For The Eyes

This year the competition was hot and the plates were all soon emptied. As the dust settled and the crumbs were brushed off, it was time to reveal the Christmas Bake Off champion. Once again the crowd were wowed by the now veteran bake-off winner Dominick Rankin, whose festive, boozy mince pies were a feast for the eyes and many happy stomachs.
