Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Performance-wise, this solution is really good.""The solution has good integration.""Integration and mapping are easy, which is a major advantage.""Straightforward development and deployment.""Message Broker is valuable because most of the applications are using MQ. Even in my current engagement, the few applications which I audit to onboard the bank are using MQ."

We haven't witnessed any performance issues so far.""The routing and aggregation are the most valuable features. It's split and join."

Cons
"The images and size of the containers are too big and I think that they should be more lightweight.""The installation configuration is quite difficult.""There is some lag in the GUI. There have been some performance issues and maybe it's because of the application data.""Today I probably wouldn't go for Message Broker because of the cost structure, support, and the whole ecosystem around IBM.""Technical support is good but they could have a better response time."

More IBM WebSphere Message Broker Cons →

"Security needs to be more integrated.""Security features can be improved to better protect the server.""The support for GraphQL needs to be improved, and the response time for global support could be faster.""The inconvenient part about working with this product is that it's very heavy, requiring a lot of people and a lot of resources.""The initial setup is likely complex for many organizations.""We have faced a problem with the heap memory side, but that is stable now.""It would be ideal if they could optimize it a bit.""The interface console is very slow. Even in production, we need to increase the RAM or CPU. And even after that, the performance is still not good in production."
