Re: Impressive customers
It's also prudent that they got in there early - there's a lot of potential for competition in this area not far down the line.

Re: Impressive customers
Mulesoft is smart in what it offers. Before enterprises had access to these types of APIs, it was a lot of hard work to connect different services together. 

Big companies need software like this to deal with their ridiculously complex systems. Mulesoft came aroun at the right time, that's for sure.

Re: Impressive customers
It's pretty amazing how the IPOs take off so well in this case a "46% increase over the initial price." Notwithstanding it's lost 50 million last year, one wonders if this is really a speculative bubble playing with those who have money to spare to buy stock, and not necessarily a good handle on when the companies will actually make some significant profits in a reasonable time frame?

Re: Mulesoft IPO
@JohnMason: John, thanks for the questions. Let me see if I can offer some insight: The reason for looking at Snap Inc. is that it's the biggest IPO of the young year so far. It was the most anticipated, and generated the most interest. It also set the stage for what could be a better year for overall tech IPOs compared to last year when the market seemed to dry up. Between Snap, Mulesoft, and Okta, you have three tech companies headed to IPO, and we would have had AppDynamics as well, but Cisco decided it wanted, so now IPO there. Now, Snap is different than these others in that it's geared toward the consumer market, but the company itself is a consumer of enterprise cloud technology, and that included $2 billion investment in Google's cloud, as well as another $1 billion deal with AWS. That's why it's part of the discussion.

Re: Mulesoft IPO
Also, I am guessing that First Snap is making large puchases of cloud services to deliver its product, if I understand correctly. I welcome feedback concerning whether I missed something in my understanding.

Re: Mulesoft IPO
It may be that, in Wall Street's eyes, the broad category of tech stock includes both First Snap and Mulesoft, and the success of one in an IPO helped to signal favorable investment conditions for the success of the other. Does that make sense?

Re: Mulesoft IPO
Let's back up a second here. 

I'm a little confused why Snap is in this article. Aren't we talking about enterprise companies here? Hate to say it, but Snap is about as far from enterprise as you can get.

Impressive customers
Those look like impressive customers on Mulesoft's website. As for increasing competition, I can imagine that the door will remain open for acquiring companies even after the IPO. In fact, maybe stock could be used by Mulesoft to acquire its competition, barring unforeseen dangers to the stock price.

Re: Mulesoft IPO
The final on the Mulesoft IPO for the day: The stock closed at $24.75 per share, which is 45.6% above the starting price. That pushed the company's market capital past $3.1 billion. Now that this IPO is out of the way, what does it mean for the rest of the cloud market for the rest of the year?

APIs
APIs are emerging as crucial to the cloud economy. Enterprises need to be able to connect their cloud applications to customers, suppliers and partners, and APIs are how it's done. Mulesoft is positioned in a critical part of the cloud market.
