webMethods Integration Server Review

The Insight feature is valuable as a monitoring and debugging tool

What is our 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.

How has it helped 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.

What is most valuable?

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

What needs 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.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How is customer service and technical support?

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

How was the initial setup?

Complex, regarding previous architecture and full SOA stack deployment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Microsoft BizTalk, JBoss SOA.
