Cons
"The solution requires a lot of training manuals in order to get to know it better and to be able to use it effectively.""The components that they include in the product that are, in fact, a WTX, really need to be removed from the product because they tend to fail.""Scripting needs improvement. It's hard for our customers.""Making it more user-friendly would be an improvement.""Some pre-packaged connectors for integration with various applications, such as SaaS offerings, would be a useful addition.""In the next release, I would like to see the product price reduced.

More IBM DataPower Gateway Cons »

"The areas of this solution that need improvement are monitoring, debugging, and troubleshooting.""The solution should improve the cluster environment and load balancing.""This solution needs to be easier for cases where you want to have an IIS cluster.""If Microsoft IIS could work well with AppOptics or things like PHP, Python, and other custom languages that run on the webserver, it would be ideal. I think there are cases where people need to use Apache instead of IIS when IIS doesn't work well with other web languages.""We've never had any issues with the solution, but it's still nice to have overall improvements on it. It could be easier and faster to use, for example.""The documentation is not very detailed. They need to improve it and add to it. They should ensure there are lots of visuals to help users better understand the solution.""In the next release, I would like to see better integration between the cloud environment and the on-premises environment.""The documentation isn't very good and the options are very complex."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost of this product varies from customer to customer and the relationship with IBM, including how many offerings from IBM are already being used.""It's expensive when you compare it with others.""The licensing cost is very expensive.""As far as I know, they have a perpetual license for this product. They are paying perpetual fees rather than an annual subscription or annual pricing."
