Organizations allocate their IT budgets based on their unique business needs, tech stack compatible with the existing hardware and software resources, and most importantly cost-efficiency. Every organization connects applications, data, platforms, and systems to maximize the return on investments, and efficiency, and deliver enticing results. But spending around $100,000+ on leading EAI platforms like MuleSoft for these simple integrations is not the desired solution! Also, this makes a huge hole in the pocket!
MuleSoft is undoubtedly a leading Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) platform with a bundle of features to meet the complex integration needs of the business. For organizations handling simple & unique process patterns, just the combination of API gateways, triggers and Lambdas is sufficient to integrate the systems and functionalities.
They need not spend around $80,000- $250,000 per year for the MuleSoft license. But yes! If your enterprise has many complex scatter-gather, multi-step integrations with different systems, it’s worth spending on EAI platform licensing like MuleSoft!. With the fastest growing trend of FaaS (Function-as-a-Service), AWS Lambda has grabbed the attention of small and medium businesses. And it is inevitable for these organizations to move from MuleSoft to AWS Lambda! . Being a tech leader for more than a decade, our team assures you a smooth transition from MuleSoft to AWS. We can help you achieve new horizons of serverless integration with utmost cost savings!
Shifting your MuleSoft integrations to AWS Lambda involves massive effort. To make these efforts count, understanding the nooks and corners of the existing business architecture is crucial. We kick-start the transition by outlining the existing architecture!
For instance, let’s consider the request to create a new customer account. To avoid duplication of customer accounts, the combination of SSN and phone number fields is validated and then service request is routed to relevant business logic. If the user details already exist, the service request must return the existing customer ID, if not, the customer create service is called out!
Our integration experts delve into your MuleSoft platform and analyze the existing architecture. We evaluate the flow elements, logging, payloads, error handlers, connectors, and other integration components that are leveraged in MuleSoft. Successively, we orchestrate the integration points to identify the impact areas and business logic.
We do investigate the existing infrastructure setup and organizational deployment model to proceed with AWS Lambda transition. Summing it up, we document all these details in an “as-is” architecture diagram.
Here’s the Mule flow for the create customer use case!
Considering the existing architecture, we recommend the best-fit future architecture to adopt AWS Lambda for your integration needs. Our future architecture includes Event bridge, SNS, SQS, schedulers, and AWS Lambda services.

Our team assesses the availability of resources and requirements of reengineering to attain the future state to set achievable deadlines. Your executive team can have business expectations and our team would figure out ways to establish realistic deadlines through consecutive brainstorming sessions.
Based on the number of integration points and complexities involved, we conclude the project deadlines!
Depending on the existing organizational infrastructure, our cloud engineers propose the possible environmental structures for implementing the AWS Lambda integration points. We brainstorm the solutions and finalize the best-fit infrastructure design. Successively, we document the design for future references.
Typically, we practice the infrastructure-as-a-code approach for cloud environment setup. We leverage Cloud formation, Terraform, Puppet, Ansible, and other similar tech stacks. We do build reusable templates to eradicate manual errors and deploy the infrastructure within a short span.
By complying with the existing deployment process, we orchestrate the version control using a tailor-made branching strategy to establish the integration points. Our DevOps engineers streamline the deployment process with customized CI/CD pipelines. This will help us to accelerate the release cycle of AWS Lambda services in an efficient and hassle-free manner.
As a value add-on to these DevOps practices, we configure pre-deployment approval and mail triggers to privileged users to enhance the sustainability of integration points.
Our integration experts ideate the possible solutions to achieve the future state. We prioritize critical integration points and investigate the pre-requisites, crucial & redundant business logic, and business standards. Based on these factors, we design the architecture to achieve Mule integrations in AWS Lambda!
As a proof-of-concept, we take the primary Mule integration point and create an AWS Lambda service with event triggers and actions. Our team showcases the benefits and efficiency of the integration design with stakeholders and proceeds with successive phases!
We gear up the development phase with repository creation as per the branching strategy. Successively, we migrate the existing MuleSoft API gateways to AWS API gateways using Open API specification.
Further, we build reusable asset libraries for redundant business logic, validating the business standards in backend code, RDS Proxy service to establish connections, and much more. These asset libraries enhanced the optimization of code and the performance of integration points.
After all these stringent processes, we step into the real migration phase. Mule flows are shifted to AWS Lambda using Node JS or Typescript with appropriate triggers and schedules. Once the backend code is optimized, we proceed with unit testing of the services.
Upon achieving the appropriate test coverages in unit testing, we push these services for testing & deployment through CI/CD pipelines.
By leveraging the CI/CD pipelines designed for multi-stage deployment processes and API tools, we test the end-to-end integration flows built on AWS Lambda. If there are any fallbacks in functionalities or performance, we remediate the issues and perform regression testing using the same CI/CD pipelines. We aim at delivering efficient Lambda services for your integration points!
After all, we deploy these AWS Lambda services to the production environment and cutover the MuleSoft from your architecture
Your Mule integration points are now established as cost-efficient AWS Lambda service
