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.

Lacking a solution for smaller applications.There are sometimes issues with clusters.Support could be better. The expertise when we have some Oracle WebLogic issues and challenges is not there. The issues are not being addressed in time. This really needs to be improved going forward.I would like to see the licensing policy simplified.Sometimes there are issues when we work on a VM because people use it to put all of their reports on it at the same time. Then I have to restart and rebuild the machine.The restart capability needs to be improved because it takes us 15 minutes to restart any application.I think the support could be much better.The solution needs to share more information in terms of training. There needs to be more documentation involved to help those who are completely new to the product.

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.
