December 13, 2021
plans to extend its Anypoint Runtime Fabric, a container service for
multi-cloud and hybrid deployments, to run on Red Hat OpenShift, the
industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform. IBM and MuleSoft
plan to deliver increased integrations and solutions around the IBM
Z product family to support financial services and other mutual
customers. In addition, IBM plans to significantly expand its
overall investment in integration software and industry expertise,
including increasing the number of MuleSoft-certified professionals
in its consulting services organization.
Today, 85 of the world’s top 100 banks run on IBM Z. MuleSoft supports IBM Z Digital Integration Hub, making it easier for joint financial services customers to integrate core business applications and share real-time, industry relevant information with MuleSoft.
IBM Z Digital Integration Hub creates flexible, efficient real-time information flow between multiple systems of record on z/OS and cloud environments while also optimizing costs.
MuleSoft complements IBM Z Digital Integration Hub by allowing customers to securely share current information stored in the Z Digital Integration Hub via reusable APIs and easily integrate it to external applications with clicks, not code. To provide even more options for clients, MuleSoft also provides a CICS connector via the IBM CICS Transaction Gateway.
Together, IBM and MuleSoft plan to accelerate integration with core systems and faster development of hybrid cloud applications, as well as support for governance, risk and compliance requirements.
As a part of the IBM Z and Cloud Modernization Center, a digital front door to a vast array of tools, training, resources and ecosystem partners, MuleSoft will help joint customers accelerate the modernization of their applications, data and processes in an open hybrid cloud architecture.
As part of the commitment to its longstanding Salesforce practice,
IBM Consulting is also significantly increasing the number of
MuleSoft-certified professionals to support intelligent workflows,
automation, and industry-focused use cases that accelerate digital
transformation. IBM Consulting, a global Salesforce partner,
harnesses the industry expertise of certified Salesforce and
MuleSoft practitioners to help companies deliver key business
outcomes and scale innovation faster.
