"The solution addresses all of our middleware needs in respect of transformation, parsing, security and stability; everything really."
"The most valuable feature is that it is clear and easy to learn."
"The stability is mostly pretty good."
"It's easy to develop things, and it's easy to handle."
"I have found IBM Integration Bus is very useful because it can integrate multiple backend applications."
"Seamlessly integrates your different applications."
"The interface is quite stable."
"I have found the inbound and outbound adapter confirmations valuable."
"The solution is very easy to use. I can download the trial version and just give it a go."
"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."
"The solution needs to improve it's security and its proactive notification of security issues."
"I don't mind the pricing."
"I would rate the support from IBM Integration Bus a seven out of ten. They are very helpful but sometimes it takes too long for them to respond."
"We have come across many customer complaints about the excessive time it takes for IBM to provide customer and technical support."
"There are a couple of things I want improved, but I think they have already touched upon all those things in the most recent version. I'm not using the most recent version—I use a version older than the most recent—but I'm sure that if I looked into and explored it, I would see more support on the CI/CD and more support for unit testing automation. I've read that they released all these things in the new version of App Connect. Once I explore the new version of this tool, I'll probably have a better idea of suggested improvements."
"I think security should be more simplified."
"The EPA, from what I understand, lacks a lot of features and it doesn't really know how to interface with legacy systems or how to develop APIs for legacy systems."
