Mule ESB is a lightweight Java-based enterprise service bus (ESB) and integration platform that allows developers to connect applications together quickly and easily, enabling them to exchange data. Using the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) standard, Alfresco can quickly and easily be integrated into Enterprise architectures using Mule, enhancing content syndication and Social Publishing capabilities.

Content is only as valuable as its ability to reach the right audience at the right time, in real time. With today's world being driven by cloud and social trends, MuleSoft and Alfresco have partnered to help customers realize the full potential of their content.
