IBM Integration Bus Review

Easy to learn, use, and integrate, and the technical support is good

What is our primary use case?

We are a financial institution and we are using this solution for the APIs that we provide.

What is most valuable?

The biggest advantage of this solution is that it is very easy to learn, and very easy to build applications. The learning curve is not steep and it is something that you can pick up within about two weeks.

There are a lot of inbuilt interfaces like ISO and SAP. Having all of these interfaces already built makes integration very easy and straightforward.

What needs improvement?

One drawback that I have found is that there are issues with using the Java connector. I was running out of heap space.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with IBM Integration Bus for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is fantastic.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

With respect to scalability, IBM Integration Bus is very good.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have been in contact with technical support and I found that they were very good.

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

I have not really used any other ESB solutions.

How was the initial setup?

I was not part of the original deployment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I like to view comparisons to see what people have to say about similar products because I have just recently changed jobs and my new company is trying to purchase an ESB. Although I fully recommend IBM Integration Bus, I think it is important to look and see if other solutions may be better.

What other advice do I have?

Generally speaking, this is a very good product. It is easy to learn and use, and it is robust as well.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
