2021. Salesforce announces new Mulesoft RPA tool based on Servicetrace acquisition



When Salesforce announced it was buying German RPA vendor Servicetrace last month, it seemed that it might match up well with MuleSoft, the company the CRM giant bought in 2018 for $6.5 billion. MuleSoft, among other things, helps customers build APIs to legacy systems, while Servicetrace provides a way to add automation to legacy systems. Sure enough, the company announced today that it’s planning a new MuleSoft-Servicetrace tool called MuleSoft RPA. The Servicetrace deal closed on September 2nd and the company isn’t wasting any time putting it to work wherever it makes sense across the organization — and the MuleSoft integration is a primary use case.


2018. Workato raises $25M for its integration platform



Workato, a startup that offers an integration and automation platform for businesses and competes with the likes of MuleSoft, SnapLogic and Microsoft’s Logic Apps, has raised a $25 million Series B funding round. The company has received investments from some of the largest SaaS players, including Salesforce, which participated in an earlier round. Workato’s service isn’t that different from other integration services (you can think of them as IFTTT for the enterprise), in that it helps you to connect disparate systems and services, set up triggers to kick off certain actions (if somebody signs a contract on DocuSign, send a message to Slack and create an invoice). Like its competitors, it connects to virtually any SaaS tool that a company would use, no matter whether that’s Marketo and Salesforce, or Slack and Twitter. And like some of its competitors, all of this can be done with a drag-and-drop interface.
