Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is highly scalable, this is very important for us. It can handle a lot of messages.""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."

"What I like best are the monitoring features.""I recommend it for large enterprises but only for specific use cases. You need to have a relatively mature integration practice in your organization to leverage its capabilities fully.""It allows us to avoid the need for consumers to understand multiple API protocols and security arrangements, and in some circumstances can reduce the impact of systems being unavailable.""The most valuable features of the IBM Integration Bus are flexibility. It's also an alternative for integrating it with other projects, which we are not ready at this time to do, such as switching to tunnels. The tunnels would be used with other partners to make sure everything is secured.""The product is a user-customized tool so that you can adjust it to your specific needs pretty well with little trouble.""The solution offers good performance and is stable.""The cost is pretty cheap, compared to what else is available in the market.""It's easy to develop things, and it's easy to handle."

"Aurea CX Messenger could improve by making better use of the new APIs""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."

More Aurea CX Messenger Cons →

"I don't mind the pricing.""Today, the IBM business rule engine, the DataPower is outside the Enterprise Service Bus. It's sold as a different feature or application. If it could be integrated, then it's able to handle a lot more of what we are doing now rather than just have a stateless ESB that you can't do much on, and a set of normal business rules.""Storage capacity of the product should be addressed.""The solution is too expensive for smaller companies.""It needs improvement in terms of technical support as well as in terms of integration of data mining. I am not convinced about many things in this solution, such as the conversion of the DFDL or copybook file, which is the conversion from a text file to XML. It is very complex. They should also provide more information about this solution in the IBM Knowledge Center. I can get a lot of information from the IBM Knowledge Center about DataStage, but I don't get that much information about IBM Integration Bus. There is hardly any information even on the internet and various channels such as YouTube. They can provide good step-by-step documentation based on a company's requirements. It would be really helpful. My company is mainly looking for data mining and communicating with multiple servers. IBM Integration Bus is good for communicating with multiple servers, but it needs improvement for XML conversion and data mining. We have a lot of old systems that use XML.""IBM Integration Bus could improve by having a more lightweight installation. Additionally, automation could improve.""We used a third-party vendor, who help us install the solution and it was not easy.""The memory footprint should be minimized."
