Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The tool's most valuable feature is its integration with the banks. Its messaging and routing capabilities are good.""Essentially, you can do whatever you like with these systems, and you do not have to take care about the scaling because if one server is overloaded, it just forwards the message to the next server, even if it were designated to a specific server. It weeds out the messages according to the load. If you want to scale it, you just add new servers.""BIzTalk's integration with Visual Studio is the most valuable feature of this product.""The most valuable feature of BizTalk Server is that it will turn XML into flexible transactions.""I rate the tool's stability a nine out of ten."

"The solution's technical support is good.""With the latest version what I find to be the most valuable are the REST, SuccessFactors, and Ariba Network adapters.""The monitoring is one of the greatest features in Process Orchestration because it is user-friendly and easy for somebody who is not experienced.""I rate the product's setup phase a nine on a scale of one to ten, where one is difficult and ten is easy since it is a very easy process.""Great monitoring tools and has its own alert framework.""The most valuable feature is the seamless integration with backend systems.""The solution offers very good documentation and manuals to assist with understanding the solution.""The main benefit is that the solution is low maintenance. Moreover, it's the license cost is very low because it's part of the package. The maintenance is standard maintenance. And the updates are regular. So there's a regular update and you can choose whether you want to do those updates or not."

"It's a complex product because you have many degrees of freedom to connect different parts together. Whether it's sensible or not, is up to you, but the machine does allow it. But because of the vast degrees of freedom, it's complex.""The product's deployment can be quicker""BizTalk Server is an outdated legacy system that does not support messaging.""The deployment could be simplified.""BizTalk is in the past, Microsoft is not going to evolve it any further or add any new features."

More BizTalk Server Cons →

"SAP Process Orchestration could improve from an API standpoint. This is not an API management tool, which is one of its drawbacks. However, SAP has released an SAP Cloud Platform Integration which has all of the features, such as API management along with process integration to replace what they had previously.""Process Orchestration needs to provide secure connectivity as no one has any data information.""We encounter challenges while connecting to MQTT and MQDD adapters.""Its administration management feature needs to be simpler to use.""I feel that support is an area that needs improvement. They need to improve the response time and address the customer's issues as soon as possible.""The product roadmap suggests it will approach the end of support in several years, and a lot of innovations are now implemented by SAP not in SAP PO, but in SAP Integration Suite, hence, the platform is stable, but doesn't receive a lot of new features in recent updates.""Data modeling is an area of concern in the product where improvements are required.""It's very difficult to find errors in a simple way."
