IBM B2B Integrator Review

Good data formatting and transformation functions


What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant and B2B Integrator is one of the products that I implement for my clients.

This tool helps with understanding the products by improving communications.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features assist with understanding data formats and transforming data.

What needs improvement?

The tool requires you to write a lot of code in Java and XSLT, which makes development tough. There are other tools such as Dell Boomi that do not need as much coding.

The initial setup can be made a little easier.

Support for microservices is somewhat lacking.

For how long have I used the solution?

I used IBM B2B Integrator for about one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of IBM products is better than other vendors.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I think that scalability is good. Two or three people might be required to work on a small project, whereas larger projects may need between five and ten users.

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

I have experience with a few similar solutions from different vendors. One of them is MuleSoft, which is leading in the support for microservices but are concentrating on API-related tasks.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was a little bit complex.

What other advice do I have?

In summary, this is a good product but I would prefer one that requires less code.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

7.5
