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."
"They integrated it with the SAP router."
"From the use of this solution, we have been able to establish better processes and have greater management of our company."
"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 customers expect that a page will open within one second, and I doubt this will happen. Also, opening documentation takes time. Fixing this will help the customer and help to meet their expectations."
"The user interface could be improved by making it more user-friendly."
"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."
"Because India is so competitive in the IT world, people will start to move away from SAP's pricing because they have a market monopoly. Soon, they will start losing the monopoly part to open source and other things. I don't think their monopoly will run for more than three to four years because people are getting away from these monopolies."
"The cost of this solution is high."
