Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most powerful feature is DataWeave, which is a powerful language where data can be transformed from one form into another.""Once it is started, we don't see any problems on a day to day basis.""The most valuable feature of Mule ESB is data transformation, i.e. our interacting with different systems and orchestrating for our business needs.""The most valuable feature is the Salesforce integration.""The connectivity the solution provides is excellent. There are often too many systems that we have to integrate and this helps with that.""Easy connectivity and easy integration.""The transformation and the data format are the features that I like the most.""The most valuable feature for Mule is the number of connectors that are available."

"It used to take half an hour to move one file from one location to another. Now, it takes 10 minutes.""The solution is flexible when it comes to adding integrations. It is much easier to use than the other tools we have to move the files. Across the board, we can move files in a short amount of time compared to our other existing tools.""The platform has been very consistent and responsive.""The stability is world-class. It is as good as any of the other options out there. They have addressed hiccups quickly, professionally, and with an excellent response.""Mapping Designer provides excellent flexibility.""The product has the ability to handle high volumes of data efficiently.""Having the SEEBURGER consulting team perform the installation alleviates a lot of headaches and ensures a stable system.""We had a requirement for transferring data to Amazon S3 buckets but we did not have a solution in our shop for large data transfers to Amazon S3. We worked with SEEBURGER and created a framework solution and now, using that solution, we can configure the transfer in an hour or two and enable it to go to existing or new S3 buckets."

Cons
"I would like to see support for BPM in the next release of this solution.""We would like to have a built-in logging framework in which we can do auditing.""Mule ESB is more into the latest REST APIs, not much into the SOAP web services. Developing is all about web services and not easy with Mule.""The Anypoint platform consumes a lot of memory, and it would be great for developers if it were more lightweight.""The solution isn't as stable as we'd like it to be. There are some ongoing issues and therefore Mule has to provide frequent patches. Mule's core IP should be more stable overall.""Lacking some connectors that could be included.""It's not easy to troubleshoot and we still can't make it work.""MuleSoft is not so strong in method-based integration, so they're not so functional in that regard."

"The initial setup is not the straightforward. It took couple of months for us to set up.""Their traditional model is a vendor flow. We are looking to do a customer-based flow, which which require significant development from SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS). We are working with them to do this using their WebEDI. It is a brand new area for them, but it could be an option in the future.""The ability to bind a mapping to an agreement seems a bit clunky. It would be nice to have a better way of navigating to a map name rather than using a drop down list.""The initial set up was done by SEEBURGER consulting. It can be complex due to various factors, such as server settings, database settings, and security settings.""The product is not integrated very well with different cloud providers. We did work with the vendor to build a solution for Amazon, but there is no solution for other cloud providers like Google or Azure. The vendor needs to create adapters so that if we have a requirement to transfer data from our data center to another cloud, outside of Amazon, we would be delighted with that.""I don't think the scalability of the solution is that great because they have tied the solution to their named nodes and it does not allow scalability like some of the cloud products allow.""In some of the other tools out there in the market, you can create one service and use that service without creating a copy. That kind of capability currently doesn't exist in this solution.""When we got SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS), it was clear that it was going to take more of a technical person. It does take a technically-rooted individual to operate it. It's not something for your everyday guy to do. For what it's doing for us, a dedicated resource is required."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The various features and components for this solution are no longer free.""The licensing is yearly, and there are additional fees for services.""This product is cheaper than some offered by other vendors, although there is a problem because you have to pay for some third-party adapters."

"The pricing seems to be competitive and the maintenance is standard.""The pricing and licensing is very competitive.""I did a review of other options out there, as we moved into the future and our SAP implementation, that this would be the right solution. It was very comparable to other manage services out there. Thus, there wasn't any clear-cut reason to go in another direction.""The cost of the SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS) can be considered high. We have elected to have SEEBURGER consulting do the installation. Licensing could also be considered high. However, one would be hard pressed to find another product that does all that this one does.""It has a very goofy pricing model in the sense that they have so many components and it's not very clear what components you require to do your work. When you ask for that, you learn that there's a surcharge for them. It's not that you buy a product and you can use all the compatibilities. They have all these different bits and pieces of it and you have to pay extra for all those things.""Pricing, compared to the tool that we had earlier, is cheaper.""The way they have their licensing structure set up, they have a lot of different modules. For us, we did not really know if we were licensed for certain things or not. We had to reach out to them multiple times to tell them that we were looking for this or that capability. We had to buy licenses for different things at different points in time, not knowing that we could have it bundled initially.""The pricing is cheap. In fact, when I saw the pricing, I thought, "Really? What's the catch?" But the functionality that we get out of it, for the price we pay, is great value."
