TIBCO BusinessWorks Review

User-friendly and has good scalability options


What is our primary use case?

BusinessWorks is the regional and official software of the company.

What is most valuable?

In terms of valuable features, it has transformation, change, and other features.

It is user-friendly, it's not complex.

What needs improvement?

In terms of improvement, for our requirements, it's good enough. Everything that we like to do, we can find it available on the platform.

Features that could be improved are its transformation matrix; the support for other communities. They don't support out of the box - you have to buy adapters or you have to have the technology.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using TIBCO BusinessWorks for five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In terms of stability, we don't have any serious issues so far.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I think the scalability of TIBCO BusinessWorks is very good. We have about 90 million messages per day. They intend to increase usage because sometimes during peak hours all the resources are being used.

How are customer service and technical support?

I'd describe technical support as average. Average to superior, because they are not excellent. Sometimes they take time to read the overall issue. Overall they are great.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was not complex. It took around 2 to 3 weeks. 

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

So far there have not been any other costs besides the standard licensing fees.

What other advice do I have?

My advice would be that they don't go with TIBCO 5 but to go with TIBCO 6. TIBCO 6 is richer in terms of integration technology and has more modern architecture.

On a scale of 1 - 10 I'd give TIBCO BusinessWorks an 8.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
