MuleSoft Named a Leader for Third Consecutive Time in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management

SAN FRANCISCO – May 8, 2018 – MuleSoft, provider of the leading platform for building application networks, today announced that Gartner positioned MuleSoft as a Leader in its Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management for the third consecutive time. The report, including the Magic Quadrant graphic, is available at

According to Gartner, “Full life cycle application programming interface (API) management is about the planning, design, implementation, testing, publication, operation, consumption, maintenance, versioning and retirement of APIs. It involves use of a developers’ portal to target, market to and govern communities of developers who embed the APIs, as well as runtime management, estimation of API value and analytics. It is impossible to provide the platform for any digital strategy, build ecosystems and run an effective API program, without full life cycle API management.”
