Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The solution has a good interface and the integration with GitHub is very useful.
This solution will allow the organisation to improve its existing data offerings over time by adding predictive analytics, data sharing via APIs and other enhancements readily.
Data Flow and Databricks are going to be extremely valuable services, allowing data solutions to scale as the business grows and new data sources are added.
A product with good API and EDI components.
We can arrange data caching and look at the solid state. Also, the API gateway is a very good component that can handle relevant cachings and integrations, as well as and also load permitting.
It's obvious that the heart of the product lies here. It's comprised of all aspects of ESB (Enterprise Gateway, Adapter, TN, Java) and BPM (task, rules engine).
We have a reusable code that we can replicate for any new interfaces.
The main assets are its flow language, debugging, and Broker. Flow language is far better and more flexible for debugging.
The MFT component of webMethods, for example, is easy to set up and convenient to use. It handles files very efficiently and it is easy to automate tasks with complex schedules. Monitoring is centralized to MWS which can be used to monitor other products as well (Trading Networks, BPM, MFT, etc.)
Application integration, business process integration, and B2B partner integration are valuable. But among these, I feel B2B partner integration is the most valuable. This module integrates two business partners and exchanges data through electronic data interchange messages in the form of specific standards, without any manual process needed.
I feel comfortable using this product with its ease of building interfaces for developers. This is a better integration tool for integrating with various applications like Oracle, Salesforce, mainframes, etc. It works fine in the integration of legacy software as well.
In the next release, it's important that some sort of scheduler for running tasks is added.
The thing we missed most was data update, but this is now available as of two weeks ago.
The interface needs some work. It is not very user-friendly.
We need more dashboards and reporting engines that can provide detailed information for management. In short, we need better analytics.
t doesn't represent OOP very well, just a method and proprietary interface called IData.
We got the product via a reseller, and the support from the reseller has been less than desirable.
Documentation needs tuning. There is a lot of dependency with SoftwareAG. Even with the documentation at hand, you can struggle to implement scenarios without SAG’s help. By contrast, IBM’s documentation is self-explanatory, in my opinion.
When migration happens from the one release to an upgraded release from Software AG, many of the existing services are deprecated and developers have to put in effort testing and redeveloping some of the services. It would be better that upgrade releases took care to support the lower-level versions of webMethods.
The stability of the various modules of the product suite have been a bit of a concern lately. Though their support team is always easy to reach out to, I would prefer it not come to that.
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.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
It is expensive, but we reached a good agreement with the company. It is still a little bit expensive, but we got a better deal than the previous one.
Some of the licensing is "component-ized," which is confusing to new users/customers.
Pricing has to be negotiated with the local Software AG representative. SAG can always prepare an appropriate pricing model for every client.
