Offshore Delivery Head (US) at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
With respect to our enterprise and SOA compliance (this product fits within the SOA compliance category), we want to talk about microsolution architecture, as enterprises generally enable SOA first before going to microsolutions. It will have to have a long-term approach on the SOA category, as IIB fits with a lot of other IBM products, like the WSRR, IBM DataPower, and MQ. It has a lot of advantages when we are using it or enforcing SOA as an architecture for our enterprises. View full review »
JustinJames says in a Mule ESB review
IT Consultant at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees
The most valuable feature of Mule ESB is data transformation, i.e. our interacting with different systems and orchestrating for our business needs. For example, a customer has liabilities in loans and credit cards, maybe some other mortgages, like four liabilities which are split into four systems. I need to expose an API that can tune the data from four systems and expose it into one single API. For that, I have to call our services and complex security policies. Mule ESB loads complex web service security policies. Sometimes, we have some FLAC files or maybe some messaging services. We need to consume those components and expose them as an API, which is nothing but some adjacent format, i.e. a REST API. View full review »

CEO - Director General at Megapractical
TIBCO has the best platform in terms of speed and ease of use. The brand is very important, it has a percentage of the research and development of the product. They look at how you can get to obtain the best features from the platform. Most other platforms offer the same features in the same way and the same kind of platform, but with TIBCO, you get answers in milliseconds. If you have high traffic transaction volume and you need more speed, more governance in your services, then you need to use TIBCO. This is the value that TIBCO offers and how it differs from others.

Jagan Chidella says in an IBM Integration Bus review
Systems Software Specialist III at a government with 1,001-5,000 employees
My favorite feature is the XML-based DFDL mapping, which is a tool that allows you to graphically map legacy data formats to modern data formats. I like it because there is less programming involved. On the internet I do not see many users who are aware of this capability or its importance. Since I have a theoretical background in this area I was able to quickly understand its value. In the past, we had to do a lot of programming in Java, whereas now, it is just linking one node in one format to another node in another format. The linking is done in a very smart way, and behind the scenes, the solution knows what to do. For different types of inputs and outputs, the interface already knows how to do the translation or conversion. All you have to do is draw a line and make simple additions. It has reduced the programming from one hundred percent down to ten or twenty percent. In this solution, you can design the workflow too, graphically. There are two graphical tools in this solution. One of them is for the format conversion and it is called mapping. The other one is actually developing the application itself. It is a good GUI that I really like. View full review »

There are actually a lot of valuable features. Terracotta is a very good component that enables us to arrange data caching and look at the solid state. Also, the API gateway is a very good component that can handle relevant caching and integrations and also load permitting. There is a message term for this. There are many components that we are currently using and all of them are very important. Also, we will use the DPM for workflow management and digital user transformation in the future.
