We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the holding and forwarding.""The initial setup is straightforward and only takes a few minutes.""ActiveMQ is very lightweight and quick."

More ActiveMQ Pros →

"The most valuable feature for us is the operator-based automation that is provided by Streams for infrastructure as well as user and topic management. This saves a lot of time and effort on our part to provide infrastructure. For example, the deployment of infrastructure is reduced from approximately a week to a day.""The most valuable feature is stability.""This product is well adopted on the OpenShift platform. For organizations like ours that use OpenShift for many of our products, this is a good feature.""The solution is very lightweight, easy to configure, simple to manage, and robust since it launched."

Cons
"It would be great if it is included as part of the solution, as Kafka is doing. Even though the use case of Kafka is different, If something like data extraction is possible, or if we can experiment with partition tolerance and other such things, that will be great.""From the TPS point of view, it's like 100,000 transactions that need to be admitted from different devices and also from the different minor small systems. Those are best fit for Kafka. We have used it on the customer side, and we thought of giving a try to ActiveMQ, but we have to do a lot of performance tests and approval is required before we can use it for this scale.""The solution can improve the other protocols to equal the AMQ protocol they offer."

More ActiveMQ Cons →

"There are some aspects of the monitoring that could be improved on. There is a tool that is somewhat connected to Kafka called Service Registry. This is a product by Red Hat that I would like to see integrated more tightly.""There is improvement needed to keep the support libraries updated.""The turnaround of adopting new versions of underlying technologies sometimes is too slow.""This product needs better visualization capabilities in general."
