Pros
The scalability of the product is quite good.We needed this type of integration and WebShepere is the best tool for it.This solution is easy to use with a GUI that is intuitive and very helpful.It has good stability of the application server in the long term compared to other solutions.The solution is robust. The connection management and the scalability, which IBM provides to the Stack, are also valuable.The most valuable feature of this solution is Portal Virtualization.High availability, alert management, and deployments are the most valuable features for us. We have the ND version so we can do deployments.

We only use the basic features, but the most valuable one for us is the Publish-subscribe pattern.Performance-wise, this solution is really good.It has many interfaces and you can connect to any backend source that has another format, and convert it to the desired format.

Cons
The availability of the solution needs improvement.I think that this is a good product but I think that the cloud environment could be improved. I think that the future is in the utilization of the product in a product as a service way which is something that is lacking at this moment.Some things are very difficult to do, so the interface and usage could be more intuitive for those.It should be able to serve more concurrent requests like Oracle. Oracle has more powerful stability, availability, and real-time serving.They should make the solution more lightweight and not bundle everything into a single product.In the next release of this solution, I would like to see support for the Arabic language.The footprint could be reduced so that we can use a smaller virtual machine to run the application. We could also use more scripts. I would like this solution to be more script oriented, rather than GUI oriented.

Technical support is very slow and needs to be improved.The images and size of the containers are too big and I think that they should be more lightweight.The user interface is designed mainly for experts, much in the way a BPM or another integration tool is.
