The solution needs to improve it's security and its proactive notification of security issues.Session management can sometimes hand forcing server reboots.The product lacks an integrated testing module.The interface could be more user-friendly.IBM doesn't really have a very strong community surrounding the product. Most of its direct competitors are open source solutions, and those have an excellent and well-developed community around the tech to help users navigate the ins and outs of the product. IBM is lacking in this area.In terms of improvement, the UI should be more user-friendly.One drawback that I have found is that there are issues with using the Java connector.I would like for them to make the training much easier.

Our version does not have cloud capabilities.If TIBCO could be able to sort the size of their base image in the Container edition, it would be really marvelous. Right now it's around 299 MB. We'd really want it to reduce to a few MBs.In the next release, there should be improvements made to the API manager.Migration to cloud solutions or products should be made convenient, transparent, and easily understandable.In the configuration, where we need to customize, it takes more time that we expect it to, ideally.
