We performed a comparison between IBM API Connect and Oracle Integration Cloud Service based on real PeerSpot user reviews.
Find out in this report how the two Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The services that I consume through IBM API Connect are beneficial. It can handle multiple API management."
"The solution offers a pretty good SLA."
"IBM API Connect is a good product, and their technical support is excellent."
"It has all of the tools that are needed for the specific mission."
"One of the most valuable features is the easy-to-use web interface."
"Using API Connect allows us to quickly create proxy APIs and saves time on end-to-end testing, which lets us deliver quickly to clients."
"The interface is very nice. It makes the solution easy to use and navigate."
"The functionalities on offer are very good."
"In general, there were a lot of great utilities for working with files."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the SFTP adapters, file adapters, and risk adapters, that we use in everyday projects."
"The most valuable features of Oracle Integration Cloud Service are the seeded integrations with many communication platforms, such as Slack and emails. It works best for the historical communication methods. Those are still prevalent with all the other clients. When we are doing the integrations, it makes it a little bit easier for us to communicate the same output over Slack, rather than sending out an email and downloading the report. The number of seeded functionalities within the Oracle Integration Cloud Service platform is better."
"The initial setup of Oracle Integration Cloud Service was easy."
"OIC offers a number of pre-built technology and SaaS adapters for high productivity for a wide range of target systems, both in-house via agents and cloud/SaaS, via a very flexible range of interfaces."
"Provides various ways to secure services as well as providing extensive support."
"The initial setup is easy."
"It has a number of pre-built connectors. Its flow designer is also valuable. It provides the ease of promotion between environments and the ease of connection management. It is also stable and easy to scale and deploy."
"The monetization of the API could be improved. The pricing for the consumer is also very important to improve this solution."
"The installation process could use improvement. I hope that in the next release, the installation process is easier."
"We ran it on top of the Kubernetes cluster, so it wasn't a standalone service. In the worst-case scenario, API Connect couldn't stay online if all the containers went down. We had to restart all the services. We shut down all the containers automatically one by one."
"Support for this platform could still be improved. It also needs to have more levels of versatility. Its compatibility and integration with different platforms also need improvement."
"The solution would be better if it had cloud functionalities."
"Different versions of the same thing can mean unnecessary duplication."
"Documentation for the CLI is not very complete. Also, the support could be improved, and we have had several problems with backing up and restoring the product."
"The installation was difficult with the IBM toolkit."
"Lacks features for more complex integrations."
"Make it more similar to the on-premises features. For example, if you can edit the code directly rather than just dragging and dropping, or if you can edit the examples by going into the background, and one-click migration, I'd like to see included in the next release."
"Sometimes, the tech support is slow to get back to us. We have had to wait up to two weeks for a response."
"Oracle Integration Cloud Service can improve file handling. Currently, our real-time file polling limitation is 10 MB, if that size can be increased it would be helpful. For example, increasing the size from 10 MB to 1 GB."
"The solution is expensive."
"There are a few features that we noticed are not in the cloud. There are some improvements needed. One example is the graphical user interface that needs to improve, it could be easier to use."
"Configurable timeouts on each connection would be good."
"The bulk processing needs improvement."
