Integrations are a major demand for Salesforce line-of-business users. And in most cases, those integrations need to span across the entire org. This implementation can be challenging with the growing demand that outweighs the capacity of current IT and development teams. But with Mulesoft Composer, integrations can be set up seamlessly with clicks, not code.
What is Mulesoft Composer?
Mulesoft Composer is a no-code integration tool that allows users to connect apps and data to Salesforce without leaving the Salesforce UI. Mulesoft has a multitude of connectors that you can integrate your org to, including but not limited to Jira, Workday, NetSuite, Asana, and Twilio. By integrating these applications and data into Salesforce, more processes will be automated, allowing business users to focus on other tasks that deliver more value. Integrations can help streamline sales operations, elevate customer service, foster team collaboration, and enhance the employee experience.
Why Mulesoft Composer?
Now more than ever, IT and development teams are met with the growing demand that far outweighs their capacity, meaning that many new projects remain in the queue for some time. Despite this, integrations are highly requested among business leaders because of their ability to automate tasks normally performed by line-of-business teams. And by freeing up automatable tasks such as data verification, employees can take charge and build value in a fast-moving, ever-growing digital world.
MuleSoft Composer eliminates the need to engage IT Teams and developers because of its no-code solution. Its pre-built set of connectors make the integration process as easy as a few clicks – no development experience required. In fact, this is the easiest part – the longest part of the process is figuring out the business logic for your new implementation. This means no longer having to wait weeks to months on a custom solution by a development team – freeing up capacity for all parties involved.
Post-integration, line-of-business teams can own the maintenance of the integration as well, once again leaving no dependencies on IT teams. This makes Mulesoft Composer especially accessible for small to medium teams who have no IT support available to them. And with the added capabilities integrations bring to the table, bottlenecks between positions from analysts to developers are significantly reduced, helping allocate focus to what really matters for your business.
What can you do with MuleSoft Composer and Salesforce?
You can enrich your customer data by providing your Salesforce admins with a no-code solution to quickly unlock data, connect apps, and automate integrations to boost productivity.
- Build integrations easily with clicks, not code — all inside Salesforce. You can create integrations and logic with a few simple clicks directly inside of Salesforce, without relying on development resources.
- Utilize a growing library of prebuilt connectors. Use prebuilt connectors for common systems such as Slack, Netsuite, Workday, Tableau, Stripe, Asana, Jira, and more — enabling you to build integrations and create a single view of your customer faster.
- Preview as you build connections and design with real data. You’ll be able to unlock those data silos and build integrations between your apps and Salesforce. WIth a real-time preview option you can verify with confidence that you’re pulling in the right data.
- Monitor any errors with automatic alerts. MuleSoft provides admins with built-in monitoring for all integrations. Your admins will get automatic error alerts so your team can quickly identify and resolve issues.
Mulesoft also offers the AnyPoint Platform for larger teams with IT Support. The AnyPoint Composer provides reusable assets to build APIs and integrations with clicks or code. Like MuleSoft Composer, Anypoint Platform provides a quicker start-to-deployment time and works well in conjunction with MuleSoft Composer.

You’ll be able to select the connectors you need and the fields that need to be integrated, all with a few clicks. Mulesoft Composer will take care of the rest!
All in all, Mulesoft Composer is an ideal solution for line-of-business users to take control of the integrations they need, freeing up much-needed capacity for every team.
