We are a gold partner with IBM. DataPower Gateway is quite cool but API Manage needs to be more stable. Without testing, they released the product into the market. This is what we have observed. Sometimes, even small features in the big product do not work. I would rate this product an eight out of ten.

If you are an enterprise customer, I would definitely advise that it is better to go for IBM DataPower. You won't need to have a proxy or any other security measures required in the DMC, and it is easy to implement and easy to maintain and scale. Overall, I would rate IBM DataPower Gateway at ten out of ten.

The previous CIO in IBM wanted to move away from DataPower Gateway. We are currently using ACE Platform because it does the bulk of the workload and Connect Direct. IBM was wondering why they were having IBM DataPower Gateway if they also have Connect Direct to do file transfers. They are currently re-evaluating the situation. I would recommend the solution to others. I rate IBM DataPower Gateway a nine out of ten.

We are planning to move away from IBM to use a different system for a number of reasons including security concerns, authorization, authentication and to save costs for the organization. I would recommend those considering using this solution to get a partnership with IBM rather than being a regular customer. It is also important to build the required skill sets for employees within an organization. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

I would recommend this solution to other companies, especially large enterprises. I would not recommend it to customers in the SME segment or startups or scale-ups. On a scale from one to ten, I would give IBM DataPower Gateway an eight.

I would recommend working on the physical appliance and not the virtual one. Consider the licensing aspect, and try to evaluate it three to five years ahead. Also, look closely at the competition as there are now quite a few good competitors, and make sure the features suit you best. I would rate IBM DataPower Gateway an eight out of ten.

This is a good product, although it depends on what country you are working in. My advice is to always seek out IBM support when you have a problem. Overall, this is a good product, and if it were more user-friendly then it might be a perfect score. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

It is a good solution. It's more expensive compared to competitors. IBM charges more for its products. Anybody can use it as their security device and as their multi-protocol handling device. It is compatible with IBM products. I would rate it a seven out of ten. In the next update, I would like to see better development features and more scripting options.

If you've got it, you should use it. If you haven't got it, you probably should be looking at newer products such as SnapLogic. It's a high-speed device. If you need an appliance on-premise, that would be the way to go. If you need to migrate something that's on-premise to the cloud, you could go to the virtual. If you're doing something new, you probably wouldn't touch it.

I'd advise other companies that are implementing the solution to make a narrow scope and be very clear with their scope before starting projects. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

There's a lot of vendor hype about ESB solutions. ESBs are not something you just install it and wait for great things to happen, right? What questions should someone ask before purchasing an enterprise service bus? Help your peers ask the right questions so that they'll make the best decision.

There are two kinds of integration piece ESB & EAI. If your requirement is for basic integration(Web services) then ESB would be helpful. If you have traditional or legacy systems that communicate with legacy protocols and message formats then ESB would be a bit harder to use as you need to develop adapters for those legacy systems by your own. On the other hand EAI is an extension to ESB by vendors and it offers ready made tools and adapters which can ease your integration. But cost is involved there.
