Integration is the driving force behind digital transformations and Salesforce plans to take the next step in helping customers harness their vast amounts of data through the acquisition of MuleSoft.

Anyone who has attempted to adopt a major application running, ERP, CRM, etc. as a cloud solutions in a multi-enterprise environment knows that it may not be as easy as expected because of the additional effort typically required to integrate various data sources, both internal and external.

Over the last few years, Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) has evolved its portfolio and go-to-market strategy to be a trusted partner in customers’ digital transformations. The acquisition of Mulesoft, valued at $6.5 billion, will add an Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), which is used to connect disparate software systems, cloud-based or on premises, using application programming interfaces (APIs), to Salesforce’s arsenal.

This acquisition is a huge validation for the business integration market generally, and any size enterprise, within any industry.

Enterprises must be able to link all their applications and data, with customers and business partners, to ensure information can flow freely throughout their business networks. Only then can they leverage the tremendous power of analytics, not to mention take advantage of the digital transformation. This means no application can exist on its own. Enterprises must find ways to provide links between their own applications and business solutions in order to break down silos and encourage data sharing and innovation for their customers and business partners.
