We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It has many interfaces and you can connect to any backend source that has another format, and convert it to the desired format."
"We only use the basic features, but the most valuable one for us is the Publish-subscribe pattern."
"The solution has good integration."
"Performance-wise, this solution is really good."
"Integration and mapping are easy, which is a major advantage."
"Scalability on the solution is great. It's very very easy to scale."
"The solution is very scalable. It's easy to add processes even if you are new to the solution."
"The program is scalable."
"The most valuable feature is that it provides one place where you can control all of the services."
"It integrates well with other solutions."
"WebLogic adds a lot of value to business and investments."
"The transaction handling of WebLogic and the way it is designed is excellent."
"This is a robust solution."
"The user interface is designed mainly for experts, much in the way a BPM or another integration tool is."
"Technical support is very slow and needs to be improved."
"The installation configuration is quite difficult."
"The images and size of the containers are too big and I think that they should be more lightweight."
"Technical support is good but they could have a better response time."
"The licensing for the solution is pretty expensive. It may be the most expensive solution, if you were to compare it to the competition."
"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."
"I think the support could be much better."
"The restart capability needs to be improved because it takes us 15 minutes to restart any application."
"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."
"I would like to see the licensing policy simplified."
"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."
"There are sometimes issues with clusters."
"IBM products are generally more stable and have more features, but also come at a greater cost."
"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."
"I feel with IBM, when you want certain functions or features, you have to continuously purchase add-ons. There are always additional fees."
"There is a license required for this solution and the price could be reduced."
