Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We only use the basic features, but the most valuable one for us is the Publish-subscribe pattern.""The solution has good integration.""Performance-wise, this solution is really good.""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."

"In case there is something that doesn't work out of the box, you have the flexibility to customize it.""This is one of the critical products for my company and we use it extensively. We currently use each and every feature of Oracle SOA.""In Oracle SOA Suite some applications are not able to use REST, but it can support both SOAP and REST. You're able to integrate quite a lot of systems, which may not be able to in other solutions. You can also use XML and JSON. It is a standardizing type of tool. It doesn't matter whether I'm using JSON or XML, it can convert them."

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

More IBM WebSphere Message Broker Cons →

"The technical support is good, we have premier support which costs extra.""An important area that can be improved is the product's data monitoring. When we use the solution for interfacing or end-to-end data monitoring, we want to know exactly where the data is going and exactly where it is failing, or where there is an issue.""They supply lots of documentation but finding what we need is challenging at times."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price is very high and it's the main reason that we are searching for alternatives."
  • "This product is more expensive than competing products."
  • "I feel with IBM, when you want certain functions or features, you have to continuously purchase add-ons. There are always additional fees."

    Overview
    WebSphere Message Broker is an enterprise service bus (ESB) providing connectivity and universal data transformation for service-oriented architecture (SOA) and non-SOA environments. It allows businesses of any size to eliminate point-to-point connections and batch processing regardless of platform, protocol or data format.

    Oracle SOA Suite is a comprehensive, standards-based software suite to build, deploy and manage integration following the concepts of service-oriented architecture (SOA). The components of the suite benefit from consistent tooling, a single deployment and management model, end-to-end security and unified metadata management. Oracle SOA Suite helps businesses lower costs by allowing maximum re-use of existing IT investments and assets, regardless of the environment (OS, application server, etc.) they run in, or the technology they were built upon. Its easy-to-use, re-use focused, unified application development tooling and end-to-end lifecycle management support further reduces development and maintenance cost and complexity.
