We performed a comparison between Mule ESB and TIBCO ActiveMatrix Service Bus based on real PeerSpot user reviews.
Find out in this report how the two ESB (Enterprise Service Bus) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The solution improved my company by modernizing the way we offer services and improving the user experience."
"The solution offers multiple deployment options."
"Everything runs in Java, which is a useful feature."
"I'm not using ESB directly. It is the integration layer, so it's running under the hood. However, the conversion and transformation performance is excellent. Anypoint Enterprise Security is also solid."
"It was pretty fast to develop APIs on this platform, which is something I liked about it. So, the time to value was pretty good."
"Mule ESB is a very easy-to-use and user-friendly solution."
"The solution has a good graphical interface."
"The solution doesn't require much code writing and we can develop APIs very easily."
"The technology is really easy to learn."
"The GUI and IDE features of this solution are easy to work with and to develop. We find application management easy using this solution. It is a stable product"
"It is easy to develop. It has a very wide range of features. The older versions are very stable, and there are no issues with the product."
"The most attractive and beneficial feature is the ease of development."
"It's very stable and reliable."
"The price of Mule ESB could improve."
"In an upcoming release, I would like to see more additional concept for exception handling, batch processing, and increased integration with other application."
"From the product perspective, it was sometimes hard to manage the dependencies. When we had to add dependencies on a couple of different packages, it was sometimes confusing. It was hard to update them with Anypoint Studio, as well as with MuleSoft. There were challenges with that. So, that's one of the areas that could be improved."
"We would like the ability to use our own code. This would allow us to develop customizations with ease. Additionally, it would be nice to have more analytics or insights on the exchanged information between databases."
"Mule ESB could be more user-friendly. I think users must learn about the architecture before they start coding. The price could be better. In the next release, I would like to see an EDIFACT integration."
"There are limitations with the subscription model that comes with the product."
"The current version will not be supported for much longer."
"There are some issues with both stability and scalability."
"The intermediate version that we are using has stability issues. These stability issues should be resolved, but it seems like TIBCO is not focusing on resolving these issues. The resolution timelines are quite high even for high-priority incidents. Its price should be lower. Its licensing cost is considerably high as compared to other ESBs."
"Issues with the support, the fees, and the termination of the professional services are reasons we are looking for other solutions."
"We'd like to see improvements in product support."
"The stability of their latest version is not on par with their classic version 5.X."
"The solution is very expensive when you use multiple components, it would b better if this could be reduced."
