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.

The most valuable features for us are web frameworks like MVC, Web API, and WCS.Proven solution with valuable customization.Ease of use, the richness of the libraries and basically very good development tools.I'd rate the solution as highly stable.As we are a software company, we find that accessing resources using this technology is easier compared to the others.The .NET framework is a mature platform that is very helpful and saves time during the software development process.When it comes to the user interface, the context is better than other tools because it is easier to use.The most valuable feature is the financial accounting.

Cons
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.

I would like to see more pre-built features in the MVC framework because as it is now, it's very open and you have to develop your own controls in order to use it.Lacking in auto-scaling.The .NET open source community could be larger.The pricing is a bit expensive.In the next release, I am looking for more advanced technologies such as socket communication and enhanced features like realtime chat with the clients.If Microsoft would provide a monthly subscription at a cost that a developer can afford then it would be really helpful.They should have more training materials available that are specific to .NET. We spend a lot of money training our engineers.This solution should include Power BI so that we don't have to use any third-party tools.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The price is very high and it's the main reason that we are searching for alternatives.This product is more expensive than competing products.IBM products are generally more stable and have more features, but also come at a greater cost.

The Microsoft .NET Framework is free of charge, without licensing cost.If you want to develop an enterprise-level application, you have to purchase the enterprise-level development license.There is a Community Edition that can be used free of charge, but the licensing cost for the Enterprise version is quite high.The pricing could be cheaper.The product and support for this solution are free for everyone.Do your homework. Consider the partnership program.

Overview
WebSphere Message Broker is an enterprise service bus (ESB) providing connectivity and universal data transformation for service-oriented architecture (SOA) and non-SOA environments. It allows businesses of any size to eliminate point-to-point connections and batch processing regardless of platform, protocol or data format..NET Framework is a software framework that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows. It includes a large class library named Framework Class Library (FCL) and provides language interoperability across several programming languages. Programs written for .NET Framework execute in a software environment named Common Language Runtime (CLR), an application virtual machine that provides services such as security, memory management, and exception handling. FCL and CLR together constitute .NET Framework.
