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 »

Sometimes when new features are released, they are not immediately stable.It is a young product and does not have the kind of brand recognition that would make it a more popular solution with our clients.I would like to see some additional features like having some extensions for .NET core because we use it for our back-end language.
