Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
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.Web interface, REST API for viewing services, admin, stats, and deployment are premium features, which makes IIB stand among its competition.REST API design and development support are useful. Building and exposing APIs using GUI API designer with editor makes implementation a breeze.IBM support is fantastic and quick.

Cons
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.Current aggregation implementation should be deprecated. MQ independent, as well as an intuitive solution, should be proposed.

I would like to see better documentation for the open-source version.There are a lot of security settings that when you apply you have to re-apply again every time you modify a setting. It is something that really needs to be enhanced.
