IBM Integration Bus Review

Easy to learn, technical support is good, and there is a knowledgeable and helpful community

What is our primary use case?

We use this product as an integration point between systems. We use it for logging and transformation of data between backend and frontend.

Our use case involves the communications industry.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it is clear and easy to learn.

There is a community available where I can find a solution if I am facing a problem.

What needs improvement?

The interface could be more user-friendly.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using IBM Integration Bus for about one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

IBM Integration Bus is stable, although it depends on the efficiency of our code, the network stability, and the infrastructure. It will be stable if all of the applications are running efficiently.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have a support agreement that is included with our license and whenever we have a problem, we contact them. In my experience, they provide good support. They also provide good material and documents.

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

I have not used another similar solution by another vendor, although I have been part of projects where other systems had been implemented.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward, especially with Java and EasyCODE.

We make use of tools like bash scripting when we deploy files. When we deploy a single file, it takes about five minutes.

What other advice do I have?

In summary, I can recommend this product because it is easy and straightforward to learn and use. It is also stable and has a good market share. All of the features that I have needed already exist.

If a developer would like to shift and try becoming an integration developer, then this is a good product to work with.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
