Consulting firm BearingPoint has joined the partner network of MuleSoft, a software company that helps organisations accelerate and raise the effectiveness of their digital transformation programmes, as well as technology operations. 

The software of MuleSoft – Anypoint Platform – allows companies to integrate their platform for SOA, SaaS and APIs. Building on this integration, it enables organisations to more effectively re-design SOA infrastructures and replace legacy systems with more modern, agile systems, and allows for better business agility and insights on the back of improved connectivity between enterprise applications, data and devices across cloud and on-premises systems.

“In the fast-paced digital world, connecting enterprise applications with customer portals and partner systems quickly, reliably and cost-effectively is a must – being able to integrate siloed platforms and data sets to a fully joined-up network ecosystem is a powerful and compelling proposition. MuleSoft is recognised as a leader in in this space,” explained Gary Mullane, a Director at BearingPoint in the UK & Ireland. According to him, using Anypoint Platform, companies can gain better insights from their data enabling them to make smarter and faster decisions, innovate faster through enhanced data and solutions alignment, and bolster the experience offered to customers.BearingPoint joins partner network of software provider MuleSoftAs part of the partnership with MuleSoft, BearingPoint’s consultants will provide advisory and implementation consulting services to clients, which include some of the world’s most well-known brands. Mulesoft meanwhile is trusted by major corporations to drive their digital transformations, including the likes of Airbus, Audi, Barclays, General Electric, HSBC, McDonalds, Mastercard, Netflix, Spotify, Hertz, Coca Cola, National Post and Unilever. “We’re pleased to welcome BearingPoint into MuleSoft’s partner ecosystem and look forward to working together to deliver significant business impact to our mutual customers,” said Brent Hayward, Senior Vice President of Global Channels and Alliances at the software company. 

To nurture its MuleSoft capabilities, BearingPoint has established a dedicated centre of excellence in its Dublin office. The expert team will ensure that BearingPoint’s consultants remain at the forefront of the latest developments in the field, and support local BearingPoint engagements across the UK and Europe with expert support and delivery. 

The partnership between the two firms comes at a time when the use of data is booming, with the growth of cloud based applications, the evolution of the Internet of Things and the explosion of channels provided by the platform economy. In their bid to capitalise on the data promise, in order to innovate faster and stay ahead of the competition, businesses are embracing digital transformation like never before. The road to a new digital end-state is however a challenging one, with according to one estimate two thirds of digital transformation projects not (fully) hitting their pre-defined targets. 

One of the main reasons hindering digital-led transitions is the complexity of the IT infrastructure. Mullane: “For larger organisations, realising a successful digital transformation across potentially hundreds or thousands of applications, legacy platforms and third-party devices is a daunting task…. MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform allows businesses to easily connect and sync their applications, devices and data.”

“The combination of BearingPoint’s deep industry and technical delivery expertise and MuleSoft’s best of breed platform can solve the most complex IT challenges and accelerate the speed of digital transformation.”

BearingPoint joins a growing number of large consulting firms that have decided to partner with MuleSoft – among the other consultancies are Accenture, Capgemini, CGI, Cognizant, Deloitte, PwC, Infosys and Wipro. Globally, the San Francisco-based software firm has over 220 partners.
