MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform™ is the world’s leading integration platform for SOA, SaaS, and APIs and is Salesforce CRM’s integration arm. MuleSoft’s new product -MuleSoft Composer- promises to help teams get more out of their existing Salesforce solutions without any need for detailed technical knowledge or time wasted waiting for skilled development resources.

In other words, Composer is bringing integration automation at the fingertips of Salesforce users and this blog will be covering the benefits and limitations that come with MuleSoft’s new no-code tool.

What is MuleSoft Composer?

MuleSoft Composer offers a fast and easy way to connect some of the most commonly used business applications to Salesforce from within the Salesforce user interface.

Through an intuitive, no-code interface, Salesforce users can unlock data and automate workflows in just a few clicks, without forking out for development.

Here are some of Composer’s most exciting benefits.

Design integrations with no code

Composer helps Salesforce users cut down on their development resources without scrimping on quality projects. With Composer, users can create multi-system integrations and logic from within Salesforce itself. Zero coding required. All it takes is a few clicks.

Pre-built connectors and templates

Composer has over 150 pre-built connectors and templates for popular applications like Workday, ServiceNow, SAP and Twilio, which help users jumpstart their projects and get up and running in no time at all.

Real-time data previews

Never worry about data validity again. Composer verifies the data pulled up by users on a real-time data preview display to ensure that it’s fit for purpose.

Built-in monitoring

Users benefit from built-in monitoring for all integrations with automated error alerts that help identify and resolve any issues in a timely manner.

MuleSoft Composer Cost

MuleSoft Composer can be purchased as a subscription package under two different pricing tiers – Start and Plus. There are also numerous add-ons available at different price-points providing additional features. Let’s take a look at what you get with each subscription tier.

Starter

Starter subscriptions are billed annually at $27,000 and allow users to connect Salesforce to three supported applications. Features include: 

  • Build integrations inside Salesforce with no code with 250,000 integration tasks and cloud deployment.
  • Use three prebuilt connectors and templates to jumpstart integrations.
  • Monitor and design integrations in one place with real-time monitoring and testing, integration previews, and error handling.
  • Get technical support from MuleSoft’s support team.

Plus

Plus subscriptions are billed annually at $57,000 and allows users to connect Salesforce to as many of the supported applications as they want. Features include:

  • Build integrations inside Salesforce with no code with 250,000 integration tasks, cloud deployment, and additional integration tasks.
  • Use an unlimited number of the prebuilt connectors and templates to jumpstart integrations.
  • Monitor and design integrations in one place with real-time monitoring and testing, integration previews, and error handling.
  • Enjoy skilled technical support from MuleSoft’s support team.

Levelling out the integration playing field

With MuleSoft Composer, connecting your applications and data to Salesforce gets so much easier. Gone are the days when integration meant coding skills. Now everyone can build integrations simply and easily, regardless of their level of technical knowledge. Salesforce users can now connect applications and data from different apps from within their own Salesforce user interface. As we see it, Composer is setting the scene for a very exciting next wave of digital transformation for systems integration. 

Any limitations of MuleSoft Composer for Salesforce users?

MuleSoft Composer enables Salesforce users to develop ‘light weight’ integrations quickly with just a few clicks, but it is limited to the existing set of the out-of-the box connectors and templates that MuleSoft has already developed. For more demanding, ‘enterprise-grade’ integrations, MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform remains the number one choice for businesses across industries.
