JuanArtolaBusiness Solution Analyst at a manufacturing company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is very easy to work with."
"It's high-speed and it can be remotely administered via an API."
"The API Connect gateway service and the SQL injection feature is good."
"I like all of the features in this product and it does what it's supposed to do."
"It can look for the various security threats, productions, payload scanning, and perform routing based on the content type."
"It is easy to use, easy to install, and it's resilient for high availability."
"What I like most is the stability."
"The scalability of the solution is good."
"The most valuable feature is the software development environment."
"We usually had used PowerCenter for master data integration (by replication). But in some cases, it was better to use Fuse for providing the master data online. It doesn't make it necessary to replicate data."
"The installation is quite okay. We don't really change much in the configuration. Most of the time, most of the settings remain with the default and we are able to handle our needs using the default setting."
"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. It should be cheaper."
"The two biggest issues of this solution are the complexity and the maintenance procedures."
"The product should be more adapted to the DevOps process."
"Our clients would like to see the user interface improved so that it is more user-friendly."
"I don't know the product last versions. I know they are migrating a microservices concepts. We still didn't get there... but we are in the process."
"Currently, the main point of concern for us is how flexible it is to cater to different requirements. It should be more flexible."
"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."
"This is an open-source product that can be used free of charge."
