Organizations rely on hundreds of cloud and on-premise applications, tools and databases — and not surprisingly, integrating them is complex and time consuming, making it one of the biggest business and technology challenges they face today.
Yet how a company integrates its applications and data to deliver superior customer experiences, business agility and business results can represent one of their key differentiators.
In order to meet the growing need for secure and reliable integration services, integration platforms that can be delivered as a service are proliferating, as they allow users to develop integration flows that connect applications in the cloud or on-premises and deploy them without installing or managing any hardware or middleware.
That’s why Rackspace is thrilled to announce our new partnership with MuleSoft, an industry leader in enterprise integration platform-as-a-service (iPaaS). Together, we can help customers accelerate application and data integration connected through APIs, on-premises or in the cloud. Deploying the Mulesoft Anypoint Platform as a managed service helps organizations build integrated, efficient application networks while removing the operational burden from their IT teams.
Anypoint Platform serves as the connective tissue that enables disparate technologies to work efficiently together, allowing for the transformation necessary to stay ahead of the competition in today’s digital world.
Application networks speed up app launch and modification cycles, making it easier to secure and manage access, and ultimately enable companies to do more — and faster — with less. Combining this technology with the deep implementation expertise of RelationEdge, a Rackspace company, and Rackspace’s broad portfolio of as-a-service offerings means we can build exactly the technology stack you need to unlock new revenue channels, improve customer experiences, drive innovation and deliver stronger business results.
“With the explosion of disparate technologies today, connecting them all quickly and efficiently is the key to gaining a competitive edge. Through its partnership with MuleSoft, Rackspace is enabling its customers to create a dynamic application network to achieve their goals and accelerate their pace of business,” said Brent Hayward, senior vice president of global channels and alliances, MuleSoft. “We’re pleased to welcome Rackspace into MuleSoft’s partner ecosystem and look forward to working together to deliver significant business impact to our mutual customers.”
