webMethods Integration Server Review
The Insight feature is valuable as a monitoring and debugging tool

Primary Use Case

Primary use case is to provide ESB for legacy and SOA services, Business Process Management with BPMS and API Gateway for external partners.

Improvements to My Organization

We moved from EAI to SOA architecture while moving to webMethods. Both of these decisions made the reusable services approach available across the organization.

Valuable Features

Best feature is Insight for monitoring, and as a debugging tool. It has saved us a lot of time during crisis situations.

Room for Improvement

The product needs to be improved in a few ways. First, they need to stabilize the components of the whole platform across versions. Also, they should stop replacing old components with brand new ones and, rather, improve by evolution.

Use of Solution

More than five years.

Stability Issues

No issues with stability.

Scalability Issues

No issues with scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Average. No super-fast responses, no problems ultimately in resolving, and also no long, unresolved issues.

Initial Setup

Complex, regarding previous architecture and full SOA stack deployment.

Other Solutions Considered

Microsoft BizTalk, JBoss SOA.
