IBM Integration Bus Review

Integrates well with other solutions and has an easy initial setup

What is our primary use case?

The solution is primarily a middleware. It's security-enabled and we are using the same credentials for development. We plan on making a backend to handle growing requests.

What is most valuable?

The solution is similar to Adobe X Pro. We can intersect with any of those items.

The scalability is very good.

The integration with other tools is excellent. It integrates well with batch issues.

Overall, the solution works very well.

What needs improvement?

IBM could improve its connectivity. 

The solution needs to be better integrated with the cloud version of the solution.

The solution is constrained by the environment - whether it's on-premises or the cloud. The cloud seems to be more adaptable.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution since 2014.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable. We haven't found any bugs or glitches. There haven't been crashes. It's quite reliable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have more than 20 people that use the solution. We use it on a daily basis. The scalability is good and is simple to expand as necessary.

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

I didn't previously use a different solution.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is simple enough. Right now, in its entirety, the download is very simple. It's actually a one-click solution.

Deployment takes very little time. It depends mostly on the load and what we are pushing out. However, it usually takes a matter of seconds.

We have 14 people in general on our team using the solution, and they are all able to perform maintenance.

What about the implementation team?

I handled the implementation myself.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I don't have any information about licensing or costs. It's not something that I am in charge of.

What other advice do I have?

We're just IBM customers. We're not partners and we don't have a relationship with the company.

In terms of on-premises vs cloud, I'd suggest users go to the cloud. It obviously depends on the market and the adoption rate.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
