However, it isn’t always easy to implement new solutions with existing systems.

Read this eBook to discover:

  • Why existing approaches are not sufficient for the pace of digital transformation that retail demands.
  • How to drive technology change in your organization, creating a greater capability to innovate and transforming the digital retail experience for your customers.

eBook – Building the Connected Retail Experience

“Today’s shoppers expect more than a transactional relationship with retailers; they want a seamless and personalized journey that reflects the context of how they shop across devices and channels. The key to success lies in connecting in-store software with online systems so retailers can provide an uninterrupted experience wherever customers shop.” - Ross Mason, Founder of MuleSoft.

Driving digital transformation in retail requires connectivity across an ever-increasing number of applications, data and devices. Because of this, connectivity has emerged as a bottleneck that slows the development of new applications and the adoption of new technologies to meet customer demands.

In response, leading retail and CPG companies have adopted API-led connectivity, which eliminates this connectivity bottleneck and enables a 2-5x faster IT project delivery across the value chain.

Download this eBook to learn:

  • How leading retailers like Buffalo Wild Wings, TAL Apparel and PetSmart are leveraging API-led connectivity to accelerate IT project delivery speed.
  • How APIs can be used to address the unique business and IT challenges faced by retailers.
  • How MuleSoft’s out-of-the-box API designs, implementations and connectors can accelerate the adoption of API-led connectivity.

Whitepaper – API-led Connectivity for Government

Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability, and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity. We propose that successful execution of these initiatives within the confines of a strictly managed budget requires a new approach to integration, one centered around APIs.

Our recommended approach, API-led connectivity, builds on the principles of reuse first outlined by SOA, while avoiding many of the pitfalls that limited the success of heavyweight SOA implementations.

In this whitepaper, you will learn:

  • What forces drive digital transformation in federal government, and what role integration plays in supporting digital transformation.
  • How a civilian federal agency leveraged APIs to modernize legacy systems and accelerate the speed of integration.
  • How to build out an API-led architecture within a government agency to accelerate project delivery through promotion of reuse.

Whitepaper – Accelerating government IT innovation

Evolving citizen and constituent expectations have created the imperative for government to digitally transform. Delivering on digital transformation grows more challenging by the year, as the proliferation of modern technologies (e.g. SaaS, mobile, IoT) forces IT teams to rethink how to best deliver projects to their constituents and deliver on their mission.

Microservices have emerged as a means through which government IT teams can increase project delivery speed without compromising on security. This whitepaper discusses the role microservices can play in government, and how API-led connectivity helps agencies to more effectively and securely implement a microservices architecture.

Readers will learn:

    • Why government IT teams must move beyond point-to-point integration.
      How API-led connectivity supports microservices adoption in government.
      How government can use MuleSoft’s FedRAMP In Process integration platform to rapidly develop APIs and microservices.

    Whitepaper – Your Roadmap to Government IT Modernization

    Today, government IT teams are expected to deliver more services with fewer resources. Consequently, many agencies have prioritized legacy modernization, interoperability and shared service models as a means towards increasing IT delivery capacity.

    But those approaches are easier talked about than executed. As agencies embark on legacy modernization, it becomes imperative to open up the existing technology so that new innovations can be delivered as needed in a secure way.

    In this guide, produced in partnership with Govloop, we will discuss

    • A five-play roadmap to help those in government get a better sense of where to start on modernization projects.
    • An overview of the Information Technology Modernization Fund (ITMF).
    • Featured government success stories highlighting their modernization projects.
    • The IT Modernization Lifecycle, based on the recent report by the American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council.

    Whitepaper – A global bank’s 3 step strategy for unlocking legacy systems

    IT teams across industries face growing pressure to deliver projects faster while reducing costs. All too often, dated legacy systems hinder IT’s ability to accomplish either of these objectives. Legacy systems can also slow the speed at which IT can deliver new projects to support the business. For these reasons, legacy modernization has emerged as a key strategic imperative. But where should organizations start? One large global bank provides a detailed blueprint for how large enterprises can do so.

    Read this legacy modernization blueprint to learn:

    • The bank’s legacy modernization strategy, and how they used Anypoint Platform.
    • Best practices for modernizing legacy SOA web services.
    • How to think about re-architecting monolithic applications into microservices.
    • The role that APIs play in driving an effective legacy modernization strategy.
