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.

The most valuable feature is the structure of the product. We use Oracle Fusion Middleware to manage the Oracle database. Registered users can go to each product if sign-on credentials match each user's identical framework.

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.

The main improvement must be made on the user interface. You need to use another Oracle cross in this product. It must be improved and some features of the connectors must be changed.
