One of the top priorities of a company is not to make the customer wait or subject him to long processes to achieve a goal. A user, or client, when visiting a company's website or application is looking for a fast experience, where he gets exactly what he wants or requests in the shortest time possible and without going through several stages or levels. This is precisely what Mulesoft offers to a company.
Belonging to Salesforce since 2018, Mulesoft, on its official website, defines its process as follows: “We are a platform that unifies data to offer a single view of the customer, automates business processes and creates connected experiences. By using a modern API-based approach, each integration becomes a reusable building block. Reusable processes enable organizations to accelerate IT delivery, increase organizational agility, and deliver innovation at scale".
Today, just by clicking on your phone or computer, you can reserve a table at the trendy restaurant, buy a plane ticket to travel to the other side of the world or finally buy that pair of shoes that you like so much. All this is possible thanks to APIs, or Application Programming Interface.
How is this whole process exactly? Every time you use an application on your cell phone, it connects to the internet and sends data to a server. This same server interprets this data and performs the requested actions, sending it back to your phone at the end. Upon completion of this process, the application interprets the data it has just received and presents the information the user wants in a readable way, this is essentially the job of an API.
Mulesoft focuses on integrating and connecting data, applications and devices. It is scalable and lightweight for running APIs, integrations, and microservices. Mulesoft allows developers to create and share APIs and access an API library where they can find useful information. This platform is based on Java and allows easy data exchange for software developers looking to connect applications.
To be an expert in Mulesoft and be able to work with this technology, offering comprehensive solutions to business software problems, certain skills and knowledge are needed to achieve this.
First we must define what precisely is a Mulesoft developer? He is a person who works within the environment of this technology, manipulating tools such as Anypoint Studio to develop APIs used in the integration of his clients' systems. Something very important to note is that a Mulesoft developer does not have to be employed by Salesforce.
The Mulesoft expert has the responsibility, in a nutshell, of designing and connecting an API so that multiple applications can communicate with each other and thereby create a simple user experience with few steps.
With the demand for e-commerce, or online shopping, at its peak, companies need a fast, effective exchange of data that allows them to keep their customers happy and create loyalty. This is where a Mulesoft developer comes in who, with the help of the Anypoint platform, creates scalable APIs and integration solutions, all within the same platform.
