The MFT component of webMethods, for example, is easy to set up and convenient to use. It handles files very efficiently and it is easy to automate tasks with complex schedules. Monitoring is centralized to MWS which can be used to monitor other products as well (Trading Networks, BPM, MFT, etc.)Application integration, business process integration, and B2B partner integration are valuable. But among these, I feel B2B partner integration is the most valuable. This module integrates two business partners and exchanges data through electronic data interchange messages in the form of specific standards, without any manual process needed.I feel comfortable using this product with its ease of building interfaces for developers. This is a better integration tool for integrating with various applications like Oracle, Salesforce, mainframes, etc. It works fine in the integration of legacy software as well.Given that you have one integration API in place, it takes very minimal effort to scale it to any other application that might want to use the same. Its flow-based development environment is a breeze and makes it really easy to re-use most of the existing components and build up a new API.It’s fairly easy to view, move, and mange access across different components. Different component types are categorized and can be viewed in a web based administration console.I would say the core Web-based integrations work the best. They are the most efficient and robust implementations one can do with webMethods.Best feature is Insight for monitoring, and as a debugging tool. It has saved us a lot of time during crisis situations.​Broker and UM are the best features.

Cons
It needs to support more adapters, because the integration points keep changing and new things keep coming up. It also needs to be more scalable.

Documentation needs tuning. There is a lot of dependency with SoftwareAG. Even with the documentation at hand, you can struggle to implement scenarios without SAG’s help. By contrast, IBM’s documentation is self-explanatory, in my opinion.When migration happens from the one release to an upgraded release from Software AG, many of the existing services are deprecated and developers have to put in effort testing and redeveloping some of the services. It would be better that upgrade releases took care to support the lower-level versions of webMethods.The stability of the various modules of the product suite have been a bit of a concern lately. Though their support team is always easy to reach out to, I would prefer it not come to that.The product needs to be improved in a few ways. First, they need to stabilize the components of the whole platform across versions. Also, they should stop replacing old components with brand new ones and, rather, improve by evolution.​Large file handling is pretty hard comparatively to other middleware tools.Business monitoring (BAM) needs improvement because the analytics and prediction module very often has performance problems.This product has too many gaps. You find them after update installations. This should be covered by automatic testing.In terms of scale, I would give it a four out of 10.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Pricing has to be negotiated with the local Software AG representative. SAG can always prepare an appropriate pricing model for every client.Always plan five years ahead and don’t jeopardize the quality of your project by dropping items from the bill of materials.Some of the licensing is "component-ized," which is confusing to new users/customers.It is worth the cost.Initialy good pricing and good, if it comes to Enterprise license agreements.
