Pros
The solution's features are all quite useful. We use all of them.This solution is very reliable and it is easy to learn.From a performance point of view, it's very good and it doesn't need very much in terms of CPU resources.My favorite feature is the XML-based DFDL mapping, which is a tool that allows you to graphically map legacy data formats to modern data formats.IBM Integration Bus has a complete set of tools that are implemented between rules when it comes to run time, but it's not easy to understand.It is very straightforward. It is very user-friendly integration.It is one of the most stable products which I have seen in the market.Easy to understand documentation with a huge list of examples and tutorials.

Cons
The user interface could be improved in a future release.I would like to be able to run and install this solution on different platforms.This product uses the PVU (Processor Value Unit) license model from IBM, and it is something that should be improved.This solution would benefit from improvements to the configuration interface.I would like to see more metered rest and API support. IBM is already working on it on Version 11, but it still needs improvement.To scale virtically, is difficult.IBM does not support orchestration, which is how they designed it, and other BPM tools in the market support orchestration. If they merged the BPM capability into this product, then it would be a better solution.Development toolkit (based on Eclipse) should be improved in terms of responsiveness.

The solution overall could be simplified. Everything is too complex.The user interface is designed mainly for experts, much in the way a BPM or another integration tool is.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our licensing is based on a five-year contract, and as far as I know, there are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fee.Support costs are high compared to the competition. Otherwise, the support is good.Pricing is on par with its competition.
