A stable solution that is useful for integration purposes and requires an easy initial setup
Since it is an integration platform, we use it for integration purposes in our company Previously, we had a distribution integration system with lots of platforms. We wanted to centralize everything so that we could keep everything on a single platform since it makes it easier to manage the…

A product that is easy to install and offers good stability to users
The API part of the solution is an area in the solution where improvements are made since I see that TIBCO is currently trying to revamp its tool by focusing more on redesigning it. There was a tool called Mashery, which is an API management tool that was acquired by TIBCO. TIBCO Cloud Integration is not a user-friendly tool when it comes to the installation phase or for maintaining the systems since its architecture is really complex. I think in the UK, one of the major telecom providers for whom I had done the infrastructure setup uses TIBCO Cloud Integration. Basically, TIBCO Cloud Integration is a bit difficult to install and manage the platform, but I feel there are improvements in the tool's latest version, especially on the API management side. Instead of moving to the higher version and converting the older version of TIBCO Cloud Integration or the legacy platform covered under TIBCO, they still use it because the architecture is completely different, and the components that the product has are completely different from what the new version of the product offers, making it one of the major reasons why TIBCO is coming up with a new version of the product that will be released in the upcoming year. The legacy platform of TIBCO will run on the cloud directly. TIBCO plans to develop a unified tool that is supported on the cloud and in an on-premises environment.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"One of the most valuable features is data transformation. We have some legacy systems which are in old technology, like SOAP, whereas the new ones are in REST. So we use BusinessWorks to transform data from one format to another, from SOAP to REST."
"The most valuable features are the stability and the time to market."
"It is a very robust system."
"The tool's most valuable feature is BusinessConnect. It's an older product but still quite useful, especially for transferring files from one location to another."
"Stability-wise, I rate the solution a ten out of ten…On a scale from one to ten, where one is difficult, and ten is easy, I rate the initial setup a nine."
"The OSGI console is available to debug different issues and get low level informations on the applications development, like bundle, dependencies, etc."
"The most valuable part of the solution is the ease-of-use and ease of deployment."
"The solution is stable. We haven't had any serious technical issues."
"I am really impressed by TIBCO's integration of any level of complexity."
"The product's initial setup phase was easy."
"I like that it is a very good integration tool with many other things. TIBCO is very good for cloud integration"


"The cost has room for improvement."
"Challenges with TIBCO BusinessWorks were mainly due to unclear documentation, but these were overcome by referring to comprehensive documents and raising tickets with TIBCO support."
"The communication protocols could be improved."
"They don't support out of the box - you have to buy adapters or you have to have the technology."
"Improve Business Studio's stability to further minimize development time."
"There are multiple plugins which increase the number of product installations."
"TIBCO BusinessWorks needs to improve its digital IDs and data processing capabilities. It will benefit small and medium businesses."
"TIBCO BusinessWorks could be improved with cloud support."
"Integrations could be better. Although integration is good, we have faced some block issues."
"TIBCO Cloud Integration is not a user-friendly tool when it comes to the installation phase or for maintaining the systems since its architecture is really complex."
"The deployment was rather complicated."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The license is expensive, and I would rate it one out of ten."
"The solution is too expensive. It's one of the most expensive solutions out there, particularly because there are so many open-source competitors on the market. I don't know the exact numbers, however."
"TIBCO BusinessWorks is expensive."
"I would rate the solution's pricing a three out of ten."
"My understanding is that the licensing is very costly."
"It is a bit expensive for medium-sized companies. If you are migrating from the current version to the container-supported version, it is quite expensive. The existing licensing will not work because the product platform itself is different."
"I don't have the prices of the products, but I know that TIBCO is not a cheap solution. I think that this solution is more suitable for large companies because I don't think that small- or medium-sized companies would have the money for this solution. WSO2 has the community version for free, so many of the smaller companies can use it. I'm not sure what the prices are for support, though, so I suppose the support for WSO2 is not cheap either."
"Its price policy has changed quite a lot in the last two years. It was extremely expensive previously. Nowadays, you can buy a license for BusinessWorks for €2000. Looking at what you get in return in terms of support, TIBCO community, and stability, it is fairly reasonable. It is not too expensive."
"We don't pay for a license."
