Move to the Cloud with Anypoint
MuleSoft helps you rapidly and seamlessly move to the cloud.
Harness the extensive benefits of
moving to the cloud.
Remarkably, cloud computing was introduced less than 20 years ago. Its benefits to organizations have been so profound that that today, over 93% of all businesses have adopted this innovative technology. Now ubiquitous in every market segment throughout the world, it is being refined and reinforced with new capabilities that make it even more beneficial to its users.
Moving to the cloud enables organizations to adopt SaaS applications, implement cloud-native architectures and applications, and take advantage of the cloud’s ever-increasing speed, breadth, and cost-efficiency. In doing so, it enables its users to:
- Improve operational efficiency – Decrease investment in on-premises infrastructure and application maintenance. According to McKinsey, moving to the cloud can reduce IT overhead costs by as much as 30-40%.
- Increase IT and business agility – Increase speed and adapt quickly by simplifying infrastructure configuration.
- Drive innovation – Leverage the power of machine learning, big data, and other innovative cloud capabilities.
Cloud technology has made such a dramatic improvement in operational performance that a recent study revealed that 81%1 of organizations have progressed to pursuing a multi-cloud strategy. They’re using a combination of on-premises and public clouds to create hybrid environments that can reduce IT overhead costs by as much as 40%.2
There is little doubt that cloud technology will continue to progress and proliferate at an astounding pace. Today, every organization needs to be on the cloud…or risk losing their market to increasingly advanced and highly differentiated competitors.

When moving to the cloud, there’s an infinite number of challenges you could encounter. Let us help you overcome them.
Think about all the different things you need for a cloud migration: an endless stream of confidential data in a variety of different formats; Homegrown and legacy applications that you depend upon to keep your processes running; Connections with customers, clients, and others who are critical to your operations.
For your organization to get the full value from the initiative, you need to:
- Securely integrate existing data and applications from on-premises to cloud infrastructure
- Integrate SaaS applications with on-premises data and applications
- Connect cloud-native applications across on-premises and cloud environments.
Achieving this is a daunting task. Currently, there are three main approaches for managing this process, and each of them comes with its own unique challenges:
- 1. Lifting and shifting data and applications can be disruptive.
- 2. Building ground-to-cloud, point-to-point interfaces to connect on-premises and cloud systems creates complexity.
- 3. Starting from scratch by rebuilding applications to make them more cloud-friendly is time-consuming and expensive.
This involves lifting and shifting applications and data “as is” from on-premises to the cloud. But with the complexity of existing integrations between applications and systems, and the dependencies involved, this approach can result in significant service disruption and increased infrastructure costs.
This technique requires point-to-point custom code between on-premises systems, cloud applications, and infrastructure. It tightly couples on-premises systems to the cloud infrastructure that you are deploying to, hindering visibility into existing integrations and making it difficult to adhere to security and compliance requirements. This method of migration demands that integrations be redeveloped for each new SaaS application and deployment environment. The result is vendor lock-in challenges and a complicating process of decommissioning integrations over time.
In this approach, you skip migration altogether and rewrite on-premises applications in the cloud. Done poorly, this approach significantly wastes the investment put into the original applications’ data, application logic, etc., and can actually increase the cost of migration.
Obviously, whichever method is used, shifting operations to the cloud can be a slow, costly, and disruptive process. And you have to accomplish it without wreaking havoc on existing systems and processes. To overcome this challenge requires a comprehensive solution that enables rapid, seamless cloud migration – a complex undertaking that requires sophisticated software and expert planning and execution.
Lightwell consultants are experienced in the implementation of the MuleSoft Anypoint Platform and can help you manage your move to the cloud – from initial planning to connecting and training your vast network of users.
MuleSoft Anypoint enables a fast, efficient,
and secure cloud migration.
When you’re planning to migrate to the cloud, you need a solution that can work with an endless variety of data formats, platforms, and applications. MuleSoft’s Anypoint is a unified platform for integration and API lifecycle management. It’s purpose-built for vast API-led connectivity and offers a wide range of adaptive capabilities that are necessary for moving to the cloud. These include:
of on-premises systems with SaaS and IaaS endpoints.
to protect data and applications moved off-premises.
that allows the developer access to API and integration artifacts across deployment environments.
