The tool is very powerful and user-friendly.The most valuable feature is stability.All of the components are very independent but are tied together to give the business value.A product with good API and EDI components.We can arrange data caching and look at the solid state. Also, the API gateway is a very good component that can handle relevant cachings and integrations, as well as and also load permitting.It's obvious that the heart of the product lies here. It's comprised of all aspects of ESB (Enterprise Gateway, Adapter, TN, Java) and BPM (task, rules engine).We have a reusable code that we can replicate for any new interfaces.

Cons
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 »

I would like to have a dashboard where I can see all of the communication between components and the configuration.Technical support is an area where they can improve.The price should be reduced to make it more affordable.The interface needs some work. It is not very user-friendly.We need more dashboards and reporting engines that can provide detailed information for management. In short, we need better analytics.t doesn't represent OOP very well, just a method and proprietary interface called IData.We got the product via a reseller, and the support from the reseller has been less than desirable.

More IBM WebSphere Message Broker Pricing and Cost Advice »

This is an expensive product and we may replace it with something more reasonably priced.The vendor is flexible with respect to pricing.The pricing and licensing costs for webMethods are very high, which is the only reason that we might switch to another product.It is expensive, but we reached a good agreement with the company. It is still a little bit expensive, but we got a better deal than the previous one.Some of the licensing is "component-ized," which is confusing to new users/customers.
