It is good in terms of high availability and scalability, but for every feature, there are some parameters that you need to use to tune the performance. You need some experience to know exactly what to put and where to put it. It is the same thing that you feel with MuleSoft Eco or WSO2 solution. If you want to tune the performance, you need to play around with different parameters and properties. It is a technical tool, and you need a technical person. I would advise others to just play around. You can download the software and play with it. As with every tool, the more you play, the more you learn. There are some free solutions, such as WSO2, but if you compare it with these solutions, TIBCO has deployed more applications all over the world. BusinessWorks is more reliable, and its price is pretty fair. I would rate TIBCO BusinessWorks an nine out of ten.

I would recommend this solution for big companies. It is a stable product. I would rate TIBCO BusinessWorks a seven out of ten. They should fix the outstanding issues in version 6.

For enterprise integration, this is definitely a very fitting product. I am talking about an organization that has a large number of integrations. However, for cases where there is a low number, this is definitely not a good choice because of the cost. I don't think that it's a good fit for the small customer. The vendor has also come up with a cloud-based integration, which I think will ultimately be good but to my knowledge, at this time it hasn't picked up well yet. I would rate this solution and eight out of ten.

The only caveat I would tell people considering this solution is that there are issues with the container-based image. It needs to be made much smaller. But as a tool to help you work doing what it was made to do, it is a very good product. On the scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would you rate TIBCO as a nine-out-of-ten. If you see the amount of work that we do with it and the kind of revenue and customer experience because of the value that we get from TIBCO, the high rating is warranted.

I would rate Tibco Businessworks a nine out of ten. There are a lot of opportunities to do synchronous processing. In the next release, I would like for there to be more integration with big data ecosystems. There should be more plugins.

My advice would be that they don't go with TIBCO 5 but to go with TIBCO 6. TIBCO 6 is richer in terms of integration technology and has more modern architecture. On a scale of 1 - 10 I'd give TIBCO BusinessWorks an 8.

We use the on-premises deployment model. I would recommend the solution to others. I would rate it eight out of ten. It's very reliable, but it's not fast when it comes to adopting new architecture. It's also slow when it comes to introducing product improvements.

We are using the on-premises deployment model. In terms of advice, I would suggest anyone hoping to implement the solution do their market research first. There are other products available which are easy to implement as well. Do your research and then choose the best product according to your needs. I would rate this solution six out of ten.

Our organization ran comparison tests to determine whether TIBCO BusinessWorks or Mule Anypoint platform integration and connectivity software was the better fit for us. We decided to go with Mule Anypoint Platform. This solution’s graphic interface was designed with users in mind. The GI is very easy to follow visually. Everything is laid out in such a way that users can easily read and understand the statistics and feedback that the system collects. Instead of having to search for the data that the program collects, it is available in one place. This will save both time and resources. A single user will be able to find and interpret the data without needing a deep technical background. An organization that uses Mule Anypoint Platform will find that their monitoring capabilities have greatly improved. TIBCO BusinessWorks’s graphical interface lacks the simplicity of Mule Anypoint Platform. As opposed to the single interface screen that Mule Anypoint Platform offers, TIBCO BusinessWorks takes a more old-school approach. While it does gather data, it does not gather it in a single location. Time will then have to be spent looking for the particular pieces of data that are needed. This requirement will slow down a business's monitoring capabilities and prevent them from working at maximum efficiency. Mule Anypoint Platform also offers users two different options as far as the configuration of their system environments. It has what those who are looking to create their own technical environments seek. Mule Anypoint Platform environments can be easily customized. This makes it capable of a high level of flexibility. However, there may be those who want to save time and have no interest in having to create environments from scratch. Mule Anypoint Platform addresses this as well. There are built-in environments that can be deployed without requiring users to create anything new. All that users need to do is to start running the program. TIBCO BusinessWorks offers users the ability to build their own technical environments. Users can create custom palettes to meet whatever needs their business might have. However, should an organization want to save time by employing ready-to-use, built-in palettes, they are out of luck. There is a level of configuration required before you can use the program. Conclusion: While TIBCO BusinessWorks is a fairly competent product, we found Mule Anypoint Platform to be superior. Mule Anypoint Platform’s graphical interface and dual environmental options make it the more robust program.

One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is Informatica PowerCenter vs SSIS. In your opinion, which is better and why? Thanks! --Rhea

Hands down Informatica. I've used both. Informatica is system and DB agnostic and can run on any platform. If set up correctly like I do in my architecture moving from the platform (Windows) to Linux or AIX would take less than a day. Also, Informatica is highly parameterizable and easier to develop in. The shared objects ability is a huge time-saving advantage. Also, Informatica has built-in version controls.
