Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution is extremely scalable.""They have best-in-class, quality support.""We are able to monitor all B2B messages, and we are able to see or track each message on it from an error perspective. That's a good side of it. It is working well, and we're able to do our current job."

"The flexibility has been great overall.""API management.""It is very easy to use for building connectors. It comes with a lot of connectors. For example, it has different adapters for NetSuite, which are very easy to use. It also has Salesforce connectors. The object store feature is also really easy to use. Mule Anypoint Platform is also good in terms of performance and how it is managed behind the scenes.""Customers can make use of Runtime Fabric, an RTF environment.""Overall, it is a pretty good product. It is also very scalable.""The API toolkit is the solution's most valuable aspect at this time, for our organization.""The initial setup is quite easy because the solution has a good interface through which the configuration, mapping, and so on can be done.""It's easy to develop APIs."

Cons
"It can be now classified as a legacy system because there are no more updates. From what I know, there will be no updates for the current version, which is an issue. Therefore, we are looking for a compatible new software that we can use. We're currently researching what is there in the market. We would consider something that would give us better speed on our current processor. There is also room for improvement in terms of its scalability and GUI. It is an old system, and its scalability can be improved. Its GUI can also be more appealing.""Onboarding on the solution is complex. It's hard to onboard partners and customer suppliers. It's one aspect that is not that straightforward.""They can improve APIs because they are still lagging behind in API connectivity. With non-API connectivity, they're market leaders, but API connectivity, they're still in the immature space."

"Adding connectors for new upcoming applications would add extra value to this product.""Better documentation, in particular with respect to the initial setup, would be helpful.""It doesn't work well when you try using it for the processing layer.""The pricing can be a little bit less.""The terms of use and how it's priced has become very difficult to manage, which is forcing us to look for alternatives already - and we haven't even been using it for that long just yet.""Pricing is one aspect of the solution that is troublesome. It's too expensive for smaller organizations.""The solution is very expensive. They need to work on the pricing.""This becomes an expensive solution over time."
