Pros and Cons
  • "The features that I have found most valuable are that it is very easy to develop. Most of it is graphical, but we also have the option to add any custom call that you need."
  • "I don't know if the last version has the cloud option, but maybe that could be good. That could be something that is included."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to do integration with different applications - exposing web service, calling different applications from the customer, orchestrating the call to the service to be a process. There is an application that calls the website and the web service is going to different systems to grab the information, put it together, do the mappings, and send it back to the application.

I think we are using a previous version. I think it is 2019. It's on premises. It's not in cloud. I don't think this version has the cloud option, maybe the latest one does, but we didn't update.

What is most valuable?

The features that I have found most valuable are that it is very easy to develop. Most of it is graphical, but we also have the option to add any custom call that you need.

The runtime environment is scalable. You can deploy a service in one server and if the amount of traffic is increasing, you can deploy the same service in multiple servers so that you're escalating the service to support more calls.

What needs improvement?

I've been working with Aurea CX Messenger the last 14 years and I'm very used to it. I don't know if the last version has the cloud option, but maybe that could be good. That could be something that is included. I'm not sure if the latest version includes it but that is something that would be a nice feature to have.

Another issue, which again, I'm not aware if they already have because we have not updated to the latest version, but all the DevOps features would be nice to have because right now they are using their own deployment features. I am not aware if they already implemented DevOps. That could be something good to have.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Aurea CX Messenger for the last 14 years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's very scalable.

Let me put it this way - this company has a web page. It is a public company. Every single customer that goes to get his information or tries to ask for his information, his payments, are using the ESB.

Additionally, most of the integrations that the company is doing include the ESB, it is the core of the integration.

Obviously, in this is company it is very useful.

How are customer service and support?

They are good. There are some times where there is a bug that is taking some time to figure out, but in the end they always figure it out. Most of the time it's a very quick response.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used to use Mule ESB sometimes a very long time ago.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not complex.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I have been working with this tool for the last 14 years, so I've been seeing how it has evolved. What I'm seeing is that it is less expensive than other options, but I am not too involved in that.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anyone considering Aurea CX Messenger is just try it. Take a shot with them. From my experience, it is very easy to deploy, very easy to develop and to implement in production. Just give them the chance.

On a scale of one to ten, I have to give Aurea CX Messenger the best, a 10.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
