"The data quality is very good.""The data modeling is very good.""This solution allows the user to have complete control, and is 100% customizable.""The most valuable features of TIBCO EBX are the workflow and interface.""The product is extremely flexible.""The most valuable features of TIBCO EBX are that is a complete tool and everything can be done inside, including data governance. We are able to model everything according to the needs of the company. If the company needs five people to agree to a change in data, they can do it with TIBCO EBX. They can model it with any particular rules. Additionally, there is dynamic data modeling, simple workflows using the GUI that comes from the server."

More TIBCO EBX Pros →

"The tool is difficult to understand from a customer perspective and for developers."

More IBM InfoSphere MDM Cons →

"The initial setup can be a bit complex.""The documentation needs improvement.""Everything is updated through forms, and working with UI web forms. It's more record-based processing. It is not mass-based processing. This is one of the things that are not good for TIBCO EBX. Another problem is we cannot join tables and prepare a view where the tables are joined. Someone can code it but it is not a feature of the solution without code. You have to take data from a table, combine it with data from another table and then present it. This could be done better.""The product does not scale well horizontally. We find the scalability to be quite inferior to other options.""TIBCO EBX could improve by making the building of rules less complex and the repository is not robust.""We would like to see the community an documentation for this solution be developed. At present there is very little tutorial documentation available, and limited community support for issues with the product."
