IBM BPM's best features include document sharing, management document creation, widget and barcode creation, and integration.
The solution has helped us automate business processes.
You don't have to have a separate DMC proxy because DataPower Gateway is an appliance and will take care of a lot of security features. These include data validations, encryption, as well as XML or any type of scripting or security threats that are present.
NGINX Plus also has NGINX App Protect. It's a separate module, which is inspired by the F5 apps.
NGINX Plus' most valuable feature is the ingress controller.
One of the most valuable features might be the stability of the IBM WebSphere Application Server.
The thing about WebSphere, as opposed to other ones that I am aware of such as JBoss and Liberty, is that WebSphere has the most comprehensive scaffolding available to it.
Windows Server IIS is stable.
IIS has a very simple and user-friendly interface, which helps a lot in effective and efficient management.
The solution is not limited in storage, is customizable and simple to use.
The most valuable feature is customization.
Message Broker is valuable because most of the applications are using MQ. Even in my current engagement, the few applications which I audit to onboard the bank are using MQ.
What I like most about Zenoss Service Dynamics is that it monitors the devices and gives close to real-time alerts. For example, in case the device is not available, Zenoss Service Dynamics generates an alert so my team can resolve the issue.
