"The comprehensiveness and depth of Integration Servers' connectors to packaged apps and custom apps is unlimited. They have a connector for everything. If they don't, you can build it yourself. Or oftentimes, if there is value for other customers as well, you can talk with webMethods about creating a new adapter for you.""All of the components are very independent but are tied together to give the business value.""Operationally, I consider the solution to be quite good.""One [of the most valuable features] is the webMethods Designer. That helps our developers develop on their own. It's very intuitive for design. It helps our developers to speed the development of services for the integrations.""The solution's ease-of-use is its most valuable feature, in which complex issues may be resolved.""Application integrations are offered out-of-the-box, and that is extremely important to us. This is one of the main use cases that we have for it. It is about 60 to 70 percent of the workload in our application today.""webMethods Integration Server is an easy-to-use solution and does not require a lot of coding.""The Software AG Designer has been great. It's very intuitive."

Cons
"Sometimes there isn't enough accuracy when it comes to extracts."

More Kofax TotalAgility Cons →

"A while ago, they were hacked, and it took them a very long time to open their website again in order to download any service packs or any features. I don't know what they could do differently. I know that they were vulnerable, and there was some downtime, but because they were down, we were unable to download any potential service packs.""On the monitoring side of things, the UI for monitoring could be improved. It's a bit cumbersome to work with.""Version control is not very easy. The packages and the integration server are on Eclipse IDE, but you can't compare the code from the IDE. For example, if you are working on Java code, doing version control and deployment for a quick comparison between the code isn't easy. Some tools or plug-ins are there, such as CrossVista, and you can also play with an SVN server where you have to place your package, and from there, you can check, but you have to do that as a separate exercise. You can't do it from the IDE or webMethods server. You can't just right-click and upload your service.""The installation process should be simplified for first time users and be made more user-friendly.""I'd like to see the admin portal for managing the integration server go up a level, to have more capabilities and to be given a more modern web interface.""I would like to have a dashboard where I can see all of the communication between components and the configuration.""The logging capability has room for improvement. That way, we could keep a history of all the transactions. It would be helpful to be able to get to that without having to build a standalone solution to do so.""The Software AG Designer could be more memory-efficient or CPU-efficient so that we can use it with middle-spec hardware."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "The pricing and licensing costs for webMethods are very high, which is the only reason that we might switch to another product."
  • "The vendor is flexible with respect to pricing."
  • "This is an expensive product and we may replace it with something more reasonably priced."
  • "It's a good deal for the money that we pay."
  • "Currently, the licensing solution for this product is pretty straightforward. The way that Software AG has moved in their licensing agreements is very understandable. It is very easy for you to see where things land. Like most vendors today, they are transaction based. Therefore, just having a good understanding of how many transactions that you are doing a year would be very wise. Luckily, there are opportunities to work with the vendor to get a good understanding of how many transactions you have and what is the right limit for you to fall under."
  • "Pricing is the number-one downfall. It's too expensive. They could make more money by dropping the price in half and getting more customers. It's the best product there is, but it's too expensive."
  • "I do think webMethods is coming under increasing pressure when it comes to their price-to-feature value proposition. It's probably the single biggest strategic risk they have. They're very expensive in their industry. They've been raising the price recently, especially when compared with their competitors."
  • "The price is a little bit high, especially regarding their support."
