MuleSoft, provider of the #1 integration platform for the cloud, web and enterprise, today announced that it has been named a winner of THINKstrategies’ Cloud Computing Business Value (CCBV) Awards program, which is aimed at promoting the measurable business benefits being delivered by today’s cloud computing solutions…

The CCBV Awards program recognizes Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers delivering tangible business benefits to specific user organizations. These benefits include lower costs, faster deployment times, and greater profitability.

MuleSoft’s iON is a cloud-based integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that enables developers to create simple packaged integration applications (iApps), to solve common cloud-to-cloud and cloud-to-premise integration problems. iON is the easiest way for SaaS providers and integrators to solve the integration problem, knocking down the barriers for new customer adoption. With the battle-tested Mule integration technology at its core, iON provides scalability, flexibility, visibility, and manageability that other cloud integration solutions can’t.

An example of the business benefits derived from iON is PeopleMatter, a high growth talent management provider for the service industry. PeopleMatter serves over 50 customers with more than 3,000 locations and approximately 80,000 employees in the food service, convenience store, hospitality and retail markets. With PeopleMatter adding dozens of new customers per month, software integration can be a critical bottleneck, slowing down new customer on-boarding, delaying sales and adversely impacting the company’s profitability. Previously, it could take PeopleMatter about three weeks to manually on-board and integrate one new customer. Now, an iApp built for PeopleMatter’s customer use cases and deployed on the iON platform now enables PeopleMatter to configure and deploy new customers in fewer than two days.

It is for these reasons that MuleSoft has been named THINKstrategies’ latest Cloud Computing Business Value (CCBV) Award winner.

"We are pleased to be recognized by THINKstrategies for the measurable business benefits provided by our Cloud Computing solution, iON," said Greg Schott, CEO of MuleSoft. "Our experience in providing application integration solutions to some of the world’s most renowned companies, has also made us the leading contender to bring a true integration platform to the cloud."

"As organizations adopt a widening array of Cloud-based solutions, integration is becoming an increasingly important issue," stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies and Founder of the Cloud Computing Showplace. "MuleSoft’s Cloud-based iPaaS capabilities enable organizations to quickly and economically overcome common integration issues."
