It's a very good, stable, and organized tool, as it is from IBM. It has great support. It's supported all available file transfer protocols to automate our transfers. The file transfer automation is organized and monitored and gave us a solution with all protocols. It is very easy to manage and implement a transfer solution with the multi-platform conversion of characters without issue. The validation and monitoring of the file transfer are helpful. It offers easy utilization of resources for smooth transfers.

We use this solution for financial management. For example, transactions between the bank and credit card and cheque printing that need to be given to the printing service industries for transfer. There are APIs that are exposed for the corporate customers for their salary posting and other transaction settlements.

We exchange many files with our partners. So our primary use case for this product is for our partners to securely send us files for processing.

The areas that need improvement are user management, user interface, and the segregation of users. These are the areas that I am battling with at the moment. It's not geared towards your user community. If you're an administrator of the system, it's fairly easy, but then to segregate the configuration and give the availability to it, it's a bit of a nightmare. In the next release, I would like to see upgraded user segregation, user management, and looking into auto-deploys. Once you need to deploy a new bundle of software, you need some service downtime. I would like to see auto-deployment without service disruptions. That is what this industry is always looking at. When you deploy something, you want your service to always be on, and with this solution that is not the case.

I think it would be good if IBM continues to focus on the primary use of Sterling File Gateway which is file transfer. They can continue to expand those capabilities. We can already get the files securely and we can work with the partner on some of the schedule. But the solution might also cover working with different aspects of the workflow. We have quite a big spectrum of customers in our portfolio, and having more options could help us to better work with them. The workflow capabilities are some of the key features as to why I believe IBM Sterling has been picked as a solution for this type of product in the past. I have been exploring whether we can expand API capabilities. I am studying what they have to offer now, but I would like it if the solution could offer even more support of API usage. It would be good to be able to make API calls yourself to do more with integration. With a more open API trend, we could place more focus on this area. That would be something I would really be looking for in future releases. The version that we are using will be going through some changes in support from IBM. I want to start the long term roadmap to look at how that affects our usage.

It's highly configurable, there is no need for standalone scripting.
