webMethods Integration Server Review

Good out-of-box features and the EDI is eye-catching, but it is expensive

What is our primary use case?

We use webMethods for integrating our applications.

What is most valuable?

The best part of webMethods is the out-of-box features that it provides to users, which ultimately saves on effort put into development.

All of the components are very independent but are tied together to give the business value.

The EDI is very eye-catching.

What needs improvement?

We have been having some non-technical, functional issues, which is why we're exploring other products.

The price should be reduced to make it more affordable.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using webMethods for between 10 and 12 years.

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

The pricing and licensing costs for webMethods are very high, which is the only reason that we might switch to another product.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

As we use webmethods, we continue to look for and research other products that are in the market. We have not decided if we are moving away from it yet, and there is no specific timeframe for making that decision, but we will continue to research alternatives.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, it's a great product.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
