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.

More IBM WebSphere Message Broker Cons »

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.
