Anypoint for Data Integration
Rapid, reliable batch and real-time processing for application and data integration.
Simplify data integration to unleash the full power of your data.
Data is the foundation of the business world. That’s because what’s captured within that data is every activity in which an organization may engage – from the development of new products through to procurement, production, marketing, distribution, finance, personnel, and ultimately to product end of life.
In every department in virtually every company, data records processes. It stimulates activity. It informs business-critical decisions.
The more data you analyze, the more confidently you can act…and the more successfully you can operate.
That’s why it’s essential that your organization not only accumulate as much relevant data as possible – but integrate it so it can be analyzed and activated to drive greater efficiency and generate better results.
Because there are so many different types of data in different formats – and such a huge volume being produced every second of every day – organizations now employ numerous tools to collect and consolidate it.
Traditionally, they’ve employed a variety of vendors. But now, there’s a better way: MuleSoft Anypoint Platform. This API-led solution combines batch and real-time processing for application and data integration – regardless of how complex your systems are or where they reside.
With the assistance of experienced Lightwell integration consultants, you can implement this innovative platform quickly, with minimal disruption, so you can unleash the full power of your data.
You can’t solve a complex problem with a complicated, fragmented solution.
Traditionally, data-driven decision making has been accomplished by creating reports on top of historical data. To achieve this, Extract Transform Load (ETL) or Extract Load Transform (ELT) have been used to gather data from many data stores and transform it into a format suitable for downstream analysis. The problem with this method is that with so many different data stores and formats, numerous specific data integration tools are required. The bigger the company, the greater the number of tools. And as they increase in volume and complexity, data integration quickly becomes fragmented and complicated, lacking consistency throughout the enterprise.
Additionally, the architecture needed to manage the process is a challenge to build and expensive to maintain. As you would imagine, this creates monumental problems with scalability.
With a multitude of integration solutions across the enterprise, the lack of consistency and simplicity results in overall inefficiency. The organization struggles with a costly patchwork of legacy and modern systems, abandoned code, and duplicate work, and – more alarmingly – data-driven decisions can no longer be made with confidence.
That’s why it’s imperative that you implement a single, comprehensive tool that unifies data and processes regardless of their format or location. MuleSoft Anypoint is the sophisticated solution you need.
Anypoint provides a unified solution for
application and data integration.
The MuleSoft Anypoint Platform enables thousands of organizations across the world to spend less time worrying about communication between databases and applications, and more time focusing on core business processes.
This unified platform allows teams to use the same building blocks to implement ETL/ELT processes in a consistent way across the entire organization. Pre-built Anypoint Connectors make the process faster and substantially less prone to error.
Additionally, the platform offers flexibility in how it’s used. It can be deployed in the cloud or hybrid environments. And you can use either real-time processing or batch steps that execute in parallel threads.
This best-of-breed solution includes several differentiating capabilities that help you gather pertinent data from many disparate sources with far less complexity and complication so it can be used to your competitive advantage:
- Advanced data transformation and aggregation
- Out-of-the-box, pre-built connectivity to SaaS and on-premise systems
- Scheduling and implementation of Change Data Capture (CDC)
- Maximization of APIs in ETL/ELT implementations
- Implementation of other advanced capabilities, such as events and streaming
The Anypoint Platform includes DataWeave, a powerful language that is agnostic to data sources. The component uses a graphical interface that is optimized for data transformation, and can be applied in a consistent manner, whether you’re transforming legacy, SaaS, or other data repositories. The platform enables users to track progress – whether real-time or batch process.
The AnyPoint Platform also includes Anypoint Exchange, a repository of 180+ pre-built generic protocol, transport, database, SaaS, and legacy application connectors. Using these templates, businesses can create instant API connectivity to simplify the sharing of data between hundreds of popular applications and services. Thus, they can eliminate costly IT work, accelerate development, and ensure consistency throughout the organization.
Anypoint also provides out-of-the-box polling and water-marking capabilities. Polling enables a simple scheduler or a more advanced cron based scheduler. Watermarking designates the last set of records retrieved from a data source, allowing you to access only changed or new records in each run of the process.
Modern APIs are a lightweight, simple, and consistent way to represent the resources and data that are used within an enterprise. Organizations can significantly improve agility and efficiency by taking advantage of the resource models that APIs provide for ETL/ELT implementations, and by leveraging the same building blocks to incorporate API calls within ETL/ELT processes. Users can invoke a custom or third-party data quality API to ensure data consistency and quality.
The Anypoint Platform provides comprehensive support for messaging, events, and streaming so users can mix advanced integration patterns into ETL processing. Using the same building blocks, they achieve broader, innovative coverage of ETL processes.
Simplify data integration, enable connectivity, and promote interoperability throughout the enterprise.
