Salesforce's MuleSoft unit said it will enable its Anypoint Platform to run on Google Cloud Platform so joint customers can connect services like BigQuery to enterprise applications more easily.
MuleSoft is used to manage business applications and connect them within enterprises via application programming interfaces or APIs. Salesforce acquired MuleSoft last year for $6.5 billion in what amounted to a hybrid cloud play and the beginning of the company's integration cloud and Customer 360 efforts.
Specifically, MuleSoft says it will extend its Anypoint Runtime Fabric to Google Cloud, and enterprises will be able to aggregate data in Google Cloud to any other data source via a BigQuery connector in MuleSoft's Anypoint Exchange. MuleSoft offers a series of pre-built connectors, templates, and APIs on its Anypoint Exchange.
For enterprises, the MuleSoft connector will make it easier to analyze data with Google's BigQuery platform and combine data sets between disparate sources. Google's BigQuery is increasingly popular among enterprises looking to analyze data.
MuleSoft said its Anytime Runtime Fabric will support Google Cloud Platform in 2020. The BiqQuery connector will be available in Anypoint Exchange before the end of the year.
