SDM: User-friendly tool which allows for a seamless approach to performing hotfixes, if required.
ESB: Provides all kind of possibilities to resolve business needs. A lot of ready to use services plus custom Java services. I used a lot of them all.
It has role-based access to queues, giving us more insights into problems.
It allows non-technical users to inspect their individual components within the total infrastructure without disturbing other components and without bothering the technical teams.
We have easily created use case testing harnesses for specific flows that incorporate various message types.
It's what we use for monitoring our MQ system, so the features that they provide are just really, really good.
The administration piece makes it very easy to do MQ administration. It gives us a lot more flexibility and capabilities.
Monitoring that ties into our incident management system
It should include/add more services with the product as per market demand. It should include custom Java services developed by any organization or provide a platform where users/developers can share ideas/custom services, etc.
You should not hurry with upgrades without testing the whole product completely.
We desire a dashboard that could accumulate BOQ lengths per tenant on one screen for all tenants.
The user interface could be sexier and more ergonomic. The competing products have similar problems.
We are still working with the FTE/MFT subscription monitoring and reporting functionality. That is an area in which we would like to see further development taking place.
One area where they could improve is with their documentation. Some sections are not up to date with new release information and providing additional samples in some areas would be very helpful.
Some of the graphics in the interface could be improved. It's pretty basic. Some interfaces are not up to what you're used to seeing on other, more Windows-like tools.
The UI can be cumbersome - but we are still using the Viper interface and we have not had the time to check out the Alloy interface which is supposed to be much improved.
Pricing and Cost Advice
You pay nothing for licensing, because the commercial model is a subscription. Other environments, such as QA and Development, are included in the subscription
Much better than Oracle SOA Suite.
Start small, then increase licensing later as per your demand.
Avada Software's licensing metric is very good because the license fees are based on the number of connections (which have not increased for us very much over the years) rather than the CPU processing power (which increases significantly whenever our hardware is upgraded) or the number of users (which has increased for us a lot since our original purchase).
Our internal budget calculation model incorporates the pricing per endpoint for any new projects. However, as our footprint for distributed queue managers shrinks as part of our shared middleware hub deployment, the initial licensing and support costs have been reduced over the last five years.
Because the licensing is at the QMGR level, you need to have at least a small cushion of licenses for occasional enterprise needs.

CX Messenger lets your technology keep pace with your business. Aurea’s industry leading Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) lets you adapt and change your infrastructure with plug-and-play speed and ease.
Avada Software specializes in Enterprise Middleware solutions. Founded by some pioneers in SOA, MQ and J2EE technology, Avada’s Flagship product, Infrared360, is a holistic & innovative private cloud enabled portal providing self-service administration, monitoring, load testing, auditing & statistical reporting for Enterprise Middleware including IBM’s middleware stack of MQ, IIB (message broker), WAS, and Datapower, as well as other applications servers such as JBoss, TC Server, Weblogic, and other messaging technologies such as Tibco EMS and Kafka*.
Accessed via any web browser on any device, Infrared360 is a single web application, yet scales to 2500+ endpoints without deploying anything (no agents, no scripts) to those endpoints.
Using trusted ‘spaces’ and delegated visibility and control, the portal uniquely provides different business units or even different application users virtual ‘spaces’ in which to work. Within those spaces are only the objects and resources the user has been granted visibility. Role policy dictates permissions on those resources.
It is the ONLY Enterprise Messaging Solution with a built in SOA engine that lets you leverage internal and external services for managing and correcting problems within your middleware messaging environment.
