Salesforce’s MuleSoft has announced it will enable its Anypoint Platform to run on the Google Cloud Platform so joint customers can easily connect services such as BigQuery to enterprise applications.
Presently, MuleSoft is used for managing business applications and connect them within enterprises through application programming interfaces (APIs). Last year, MuleSoft was acquired for $6.5 billion by Salesforce in what amounted to a hybrid cloud play and the start of the Customer 360 and integration cloud efforts of the CRM giant.
Specifically, MuleSoft remarked it will be extending its Anypoint Runtime Fabric. This will enable enterprises to seamlessly aggregate data in Google Cloud to any other source of data via a BigQuery connector in the Anypoint Exchange of MuleSoft. A series of pre-built templates, connectors, and application programming interfaces by MuleSoft on its Anypoint Exchange.
The MuleSoft Connector will make it easier for enterprises to analyze data with the BigQuery platform of Google and combine data sets between disparate zones. Google’s BigQuery is increasingly becoming popular among enterprises that are looking to analyze data.
Essentially, Google Cloud Platform is a public cloud-based machine whose services are delivered on an as-you-go basis to customers by way of service components. The strategy of Google Cloud Platform for competing on price is to provide discounts for sustained use for committed and customized use. The biggest advantage of Google Cloud Platform is its ability to provide a unified place for enterprises and individuals to build and run software.
MuleSoft remarked its Anytime Runtime Fabric will support the Google Cloud Platform in 2020. The BigQuery connector will be made available before the end of the year in Anypoint Exchange.
