SAN FRANCISCO – April 23, 2019 – MuleSoft, provider of the leading platform for building application networks, today announced the next generation of MuleSoft Catalyst™—combining the new Catalyst Knowledge Hub and the power of the Salesforce Trailhead guided learning platform—to make it easier for both the business and IT to adopt an API-led connectivity approach. MuleSoft Catalyst is a unique operating model that provides the best practices, online tutorials, templates and resources for MuleSoft customers and partners at all levels of experience. Whether it be for a single project or a broader digital transformation initiative, Anypoint Platform”s ease of use combined with MuleSoft Catalyst enables organizations to achieve business outcomes faster.

MuleSoft Catalyst redefines the IT operating model

To achieve business transformation, technology alone is not enough. Today, organizations need to have the right operating model, organizational structure, and approach to execution if they are to be successful. MuleSoft Catalyst enables customers to adopt a unique, methodical approach to integration known as API-led connectivity.

An API-led approach enables organizations to unlock the value of their existing systems with APIs and innovate rapidly, without losing security or control of critical enterprise data. It provides the blueprint for delivering an agile operating model and building organization-wide reuse and discovery through an application network.

The next generation of MuleSoft Catalyst provides customers and partners with the approach and tools to deliver on their various projects while providing a future-proof architecture that supports long-term business objectives. Key components and organizational capabilities of MuleSoft Catalyst include:

  • Catalyst Knowledge Hub: a new online portal where partners can access proven best practices, playbooks and blueprints to deliver on business outcomes
  • Catalyst Mobilize: a set of programs delivered by customer success and industry experts that provide a guided approach from planning API programs and establishing a foundation for a digital business to building a digital platform and measuring the value of integration and APIs
  • Catalyst Accelerators: a set of pre-built API designs and implementations, integration templates, examples, and more, for the most common use cases across the banking, retail and healthcare industries

In addition, MuleSoft is enabling the broader Salesforce ecosystem to learn the MuleSoft Catalyst delivery methodology by making new modules available on Trailhead. The new guided trails can be found here:

“Integration has never been more strategic, yet most companies do not have the right approach and collaborative model within their organizations to succeed. To address this challenge, we are excited to have collaborated with MuleSoft on the next generation of Catalyst,” said Chris Purpura, managing director, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “As a longtime alliance, we continue to see a huge opportunity to accelerate digital transformation initiatives together through organizational change, speed and agility. MuleSoft Catalyst offers partners a whole new way to engage our joint customers and help them succeed.”

“In order to close the IT delivery gap and change the clockspeed of business, technology alone is not enough. We have developed and refined a unique methodology that enables winning companies to drive organizational change, speed and agility,” said Greg Schott, CEO, MuleSoft. “Whether you are a MuleSoft customer or one of our trusted partners, MuleSoft Catalyst enables you to accelerate innovation in your organization by unleashing the full power of your enterprise data through API-led connectivity.”
