We use the solution for web services.

What is most valuable?

We use Ensemble mostly for web services (clients and services). All messages and events are stored, so we can respond rapidly to any failures. Ensemble has a lot of ready adapters, such as File, TCP, LDAP and SQL. It has the graphical Business Process Language and Data Transformation Language. It works on top of the InterSystems cache, which I am familiar with.

How has it helped my organization?

We have been using Ensemble from the beginning, so I cannot compare the situation before and after its use.

What needs improvement?

It would be good to enhance the schedule interface. There is no indication that lets us know if a module has stopped. Shortly speaking, each business host has color in the Production page. Meanings of colors are described in a "Legend" link on the Production page. Also, each business host either has or has no private pool (processes that work with its queues). When we stop a business host by scheduling, its private processes are killed (if they exist). Such a situation is not expressed in changing business host color. The only way to check if a business host is stopped by scheduling is to check its processes presence.

For how long have I used the solution?

My first experience with Ensemble started four years ago, but I cannot say that I use it every day.

608,010 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I haven't encountered any issues with stability, but I don't use Ensemble very often.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I haven't encountered any issues with scalability. We have no more than 10-20 business hosts.

How are customer service and support?

The InterSystems technical support (WRC) is perfect and highly qualified.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I am not aware of any previous solutions in use.

How was the initial setup?

If you want to connect with another system, you have a lot of action items. This is true with every integration product.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing policy of InterSystems is very flexible. It's better to connect with their office directly for such questions.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I am not aware of any other solutions evaluated.

What other advice do I have?

Knowledge of cache administration will help you very much.
