Boral using MuleSoft platform as core of digital strategy


Australian construction materials and building products supplier Boral is deploying MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform to support key business initiatives, including supply chain innovation and omnichannel customer experience.

Under the contract, MuleSoft will form a foundation element of Boral’s digital strategy, supporting key business initiatives including supply chain innovation and omnichannel customer experience.

William Payne, chief information officer, Boral, said, “We selected MuleSoft because of the company’s leading solution for API-led connectivity in a cloud based solution. By creating an application network with MuleSoft, Boral will become more agile to change and be better able to quickly adapt our platforms to best serve our customers as their demands and needs shift.

“MuleSoft will give our legacy applications a new lease on life. By taking an API-led approach, we can modernise systems to provide faster, easier access to critical data across the business. MuleSoft will significantly reduce time and costs associated with day-to-day data requests and enable us to create responsive modern digital applications that give our customers real-time visibility into business critical data.”

Anypoint Platform enables organisations to build an application network of applications, data and devices through API-led connectivity, whether in the cloud or on-premises.

Payne says MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform is built to address full lifecycle APIs, including the design, implementation, security and governance of APIs.

According to Gartner, “Digital business transformation is driving ever-more connections between applications, systems and endpoints in complex, multiorganisation ecosystems. Application leaders responsible for integration are having to empower almost every member of their organsation to support this new reality.”
