Anonymous UserTechnical Enterprise Architect at a tech services company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"Everything runs in Java, which is a useful feature."
"What Mule provides out-of-box is a sufficient product."
"The cloud and integration abilities are most useful allowing us to use applications such as Salesforce and DataWeave."
"The most valuable features are the monitoring, ease of use, and easy to understand development GUI."
"TIBCO has the platform in terms of speed and ease of use."
"The solution is very stable."
"The most valuable feature is that it is a service-oriented architecture, SOA-based."
"The most attractive and beneficial feature is the ease of development."
"It is easy to develop. It has a very wide range of features. The older versions are very stable, and there are no issues with the product."
"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."
"There are some issues with both stability and scalability."
"There are limitations with the subscription model that comes with the product."
"In an upcoming release, I would like to see more additional concept for exception handling, batch processing, and increased integration with other application."
"Migration to cloud solutions or products should be made convenient, transparent, and easily understandable."
"In the next release, there should be improvements made to the API manager."
"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."
"Our version does not have cloud capabilities."
"The stability of their latest version is not on par with their classic version 5.X."
"The intermediate version that we are using has stability issues. These stability issues should be resolved, but it seems like TIBCO is not focusing on resolving these issues. The resolution timelines are quite high even for high-priority incidents. Its price should be lower. Its licensing cost is considerably high as compared to other ESBs."
"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 licensing cost is a challenge for quite a few customers."
"The price is on the higher side. For the same price, if I go to the previous version, I would have got a lot more capacity with similar kinds of features."
"Its licensing cost is considerably high as compared to other ESBs."
