Caelius Consulting: Helping Students Chalk Out their Best Version

CIO Vendor The advent of digital has changed the rules where many large organisations have seen their business erode while younger, digital savvy, smaller firms are making giant strides. The older methods of fine-tuning legacy setups incrementally to embrace a digital overcoat lead to a heavy repository of underlying legacy technologies that make it tough for larger organisations to adapt fast enough. Today, the average enterprise has 900 applications, and only 29% of those are connected to each other. This creates a burden on IT teams, who are tasked with implementing, maintaining, and governing an increasing number of applications and systems. Further, to remain competitive in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, companies now must implement a multitude of technologies such as SaaS applications, block chain, AI, cloud - the list goes on and on! Customers expect connected experiences.

MuleSoft is one of the world's leading integration platforms that help organizations change and innovate faster by making it easy to connect any application, data, and device with APIs- Application Programming Interfaces. The platform has grown even more exponentially ever since its acquisition by Salesforce. With MuleSoft, enterprises get the technology and guidance they need to build their own application network - enabling them to speed up project delivery, secure and manage access with ease, and do more, faster with less. By using a modern API-led approach, each integration becomes a reusable building block. This process optimises a reusable process, enables organisations to accelerate IT delivery, increase organisational agility, and deliver innovation at scale.
