Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

More IBM DataPower Gateway Pros »

"One of the most valuable features is being able to implement business processes while keeping track of the design from BPMN to a BPEL Implementation.""The core is very stable.""OpenESB pushes the organization to clearly define service boundaries and interfaces. So it motives the business and the development teams to clearly define their business services and processes they want to implement. OpenESB supports fine and coarse-grain granularity for the services and supports top-down and bottom-up approaches for the services, processes definition, and composition."

Cons
"Scripting needs improvement. It's hard for our customers.""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.""The solution requires a lot of training manuals in order to get to know it better and to be able to use it effectively."

More IBM DataPower Gateway Cons »

"Regarding its management, a web console being able to synchronize distributed instances would be great.""The documentation needs to be better.""The documentation of the product must be improved. It could be tricky to find the right documentation on a topic since the documentation is spread in many places. I advise the new joiner to contact the community to get entry points and additional documentation. Tutorial and Video must be present to take up the product."

"The Community Edition is a full product you can use in production, it does not have limitations like other alternatives.""There are two versions. The first is the community version, which is free and contains the last part of the feature, but if you want to get the Enterprise version, you'll have to pay €60,000 which covers support and two instances on production."
