MuleSoft Announces First "No Software" Cloud-Based Data Loader for Salesforce.com

Dataloader.io Streamlines Salesforce.com Adoption With Dramatically Simpler User Experience

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/12/12 -- MuleSoft, provider of the world's most widely used integration platform, today announced the general availability of Dataloader.io, the first 100 percent cloud-based data loader app for Salesforce.com, built entirely on the CloudHub integration platform as a service (iPaaS). Managing data is a universal need among Salesforce users and administrators, and can be extremely time-consuming and difficult with currently available software products. By offering Dataloader.io as a free service available on Salesforce AppExchange, MuleSoft provides Salesforce.com users with a valuable, time-saving app to quickly and easily import, export and transform data in and out of Salesforce.com, using a simple Web-based interface. Unlike other existing data loading tools for Salesforce.com, Dataloader.io is 100 percent cloud-based and requires no software download.

"Importing data is one of the first onboarding tasks associated with adopting a new SaaS application, and with the tools out there today, it can represent a significant friction point for the user experience," said Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions. "MuleSoft's Dataloader.io helps streamline this critical step in the adoption process for Salesforce.com, helping to speed time to value. With Dataloader.io, MuleSoft is addressing one of the most basic SaaS integration problems for a leading global SaaS application."

Key Features of Dataloader.io

  • Web-based: Easily import, export and delete data in Salesforce.com using a simple, Web-based interface with no download needed.
  • Login with Salesforce: Powered by OAuth, log in automatically using existing Salesforce.com credentials without creating a new account or inserting a Salesforce security token.
  • Data mapping: Easily build data mappings with keyboard shortcuts.
  • Account ID lookup: Identify account names and account IDs during imports without using Excel VLOOKUP.
  • Export filters: Quickly search, filter and select fields during exports based on custom criteria.
  • Unlimited data usage: Import, export and delete unlimited rows of data.
  • Task History: Import, export and delete tasks are saved for 30 days and can be run again at any time.

"Importing and exporting data in and out of Salesforce.com is one of the most common things that Salesforce administrators do every day, and the existing tools can be cumbersome to use," said Liz Gladstone, Salesforce.com administrator at PayPal. "With Dataloader.io, MuleSoft is making life easier for administrators by simplifying common tasks like importing data into multiple objects, as well as including useful features such as keyboard shortcuts and a powerful search tool."

Dataloader.io debuted as one of the top 15 most popular apps on Salesforce AppExchange and continues to gain momentum. Dataloader.io is built on CloudHub, the leading integration platform as a service from MuleSoft. Enterprises of all sizes use CloudHub to automate business processes across Salesforce.com and third party applications such as ERP, marketing automation, customer support, analytics and accounting systems.

"At MuleSoft, we believe application and data connectivity should be simple and accessible to everyone, through nothing more than a login. With our data loader for Salesforce.com, we are solving one of the most widespread challenges facing Salesforce administrators today -- getting data in and out of their Salesforce instance," said Chris Purpura, general manager of CloudHub at MuleSoft. "With Dataloader.io and CloudHub, we are removing the biggest barriers to SaaS adoption and making our customers' lives easier by providing this integration as a simple cloud-based app."

Founded on the idea that connecting applications should not be hard, MuleSoft lets organizations harness the power of their applications through integration. MuleSoft's Anypoint™ technology eliminates costly, time-intensive point-to-point integration, enabling business agility for SaaS companies, system integrators and enterprises of all sizes.

Currently in early access, Dataloader.io will be generally available to Salesforce users by Dreamforce 2012, which will take place September 18 - 21 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrateg...
Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
