SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/16/13 -- MuleSoft, provider of the world's most widely used integration platform to connect the New Enterprise, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Visionaries" quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance.(1)
"We believe that APIs are the future of connectivity, where companies must develop strategies for the complete API lifecycle -- including designing, developing, managing, securing, publishing and marketing their APIs," said Greg Schott, president and CEO of MuleSoft. "In the new API economy, companies that successfully enable connectivity through APIs will gain significant competitive advantage. With the Anypoint Platform, MuleSoft delivers a complete API solution for the New Enterprise. We believe MuleSoft's emergence as a visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant validates our holistic vision and strategy."
Gartner recently introduced the term application services governance to refer to the union of SOA governance technology functionality and API management, thus preserving the terminology differences between the two, with the view that these aspects will eventually be unified.
Driven by the transformations the Nexus of Forces cause, users who need solutions to support their API management and SOA governance efforts will find that providers in the application services governance space have sensibly extended their offerings, both on-premises and in the cloud.
MuleSoft products evaluated in the Magic Quadrant include Anypoint API Manager and Anypoint Service Registry. Anypoint API Manager, a cloud-based API management service, allows enterprises to connect with business partners and create new revenue channels through a secure and scalable API strategy; Anypoint Service Registry is the first cloud-based service registry and the easiest way for organizations to govern and manage all of their internal services and APIs. Both products are part of a comprehensive API solution available on MuleSoft's Anypoint Platform, the first and only complete integration platform to enable connectivity to any application, data service or API, across the entire cloud and on-premise continuum.
