Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"I can connect with different databases such as Oracle Database or SQL Server. It allows you to extract the data from one database to another. I can structure the data by filtering and mapping the fields. It is very user-friendly. You need to know the basics of SQL development or SQL queries, and you can use this tool.""A very user friendly solution.""The most interesting aspect of the solution for us is that Talend Open Studio has a good balance between the features and the cost of the data management platform.""This is a user-friendly solution that is easy to use.""Talend can connect to multiple data sources, including relational data sources, ERP, CRM, and others.""The drag-and-drop feature in the interface is very good.""The solution has a good balance between automated items and the ability for a developer to integrate and extend what he needs. Other competing tools do not offer the same grade of flexibility when you need to go beyond what is provided by the tool. Talend, on the other hand, allows you to expand very easily.""This solution has improved our overall time to value for data ingestion."

"The comprehensiveness and depth of Integration Servers' connectors to packaged apps and custom apps is unlimited. They have a connector for everything. If they don't, you can build it yourself. Or oftentimes, if there is value for other customers as well, you can talk with webMethods about creating a new adapter for you.""The ease of mapping... is the single largest feature. It gives us the ability to craft anything. A lot of single-purpose technologies, like Mirth, are good for healthcare messages, but we use webMethods not only for healthcare messages but for other business-related purposes, like integrations to Salesforce or integrations to Office 365. It's multi-purpose nature is very strong.""The solution has a very comprehensive and versatile set of connectors. I've been able to utilize it for multiple, different mechanisms. We do a lot of SaaS and we do have IoT devices and the solution is comprehensive in those areas.""The most valuable feature is stability.""It's very flexible and a good platform to use.""One [of the most valuable features] is the webMethods Designer. That helps our developers develop on their own. It's very intuitive for design. It helps our developers to speed the development of services for the integrations.""I like the stability of the webMethods Integration Server.""Application integrations are offered out-of-the-box, and that is extremely important to us. This is one of the main use cases that we have for it. It is about 60 to 70 percent of the workload in our application today."

Cons
"It gets the job done but it's a bit slow.""The user interface could be made simpler.""The documentation is lacking within the product. They need to get better at all aspects of describing how it works and how to use it.""In terms of features, it has all the features that I need. However, it consumes a lot of resources. It is using a lot of RAM, and they need to fix the issue related to resource consumption. It currently requires more than 24 gigabytes of RAM, which is a big amount of RAM.""As for improvement or additional features, I would like to know how to use Java in Talend and also how to use Talend in the cloud or in big data. I would prefer to have storage directly on Talend.""Talent consumes a lot of resources on my PC.""The technical support and documentation need a lot of work to come up to standard.""The solution should offer better integration with other products."

"I would like to see the price improve.""In terms of improvement, it would be better if it adapted quicker to open standards. It took a while for API specification before the last version was available. The spec of version two was rather quick.""The price should be reduced to make it more affordable.""The installation process should be simplified for first time users and be made more user-friendly.""There should be better logging, or a better dashboard, to allow you to see see the logs of the services.""I'd like to see the admin portal for managing the integration server go up a level, to have more capabilities and to be given a more modern web interface.""The solution has big instances when deployed under microservices or in a containerized platform. They need to improve that so that it is competitive with other integration solutions, like Redis and Kafka. Deployments under microservices with those solutions are much more lightweight, in the size of the runtime itself, compared with Software AG.""It would be nice if they had a change management system offering. We built our own deployer application because the one built into webMethods couldn't enforce change management rules. Integration into a change management system, along with the version control system, would be a good offering; it's something that they're lacking."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It does the job well for nothing — without cost. That's the advantage of this product.""Price could be lower. It is getting too expensive when compared to some other solutions, which is actually a little bit concerning.""There are many versions available and one is open-sourced which is free.""The cost for one year for the ETL tools, not for the big data, is 6K per year. It is a good price.""The paid version of this solution has a very high price, but even with the limitations, the Community version works fine."

"Pricing is the number-one downfall. It's too expensive. They could make more money by dropping the price in half and getting more customers. It's the best product there is, but it's too expensive.""Currently, the licensing solution for this product is pretty straightforward. The way that Software AG has moved in their licensing agreements is very understandable. It is very easy for you to see where things land. Like most vendors today, they are transaction based. Therefore, just having a good understanding of how many transactions that you are doing a year would be very wise. Luckily, there are opportunities to work with the vendor to get a good understanding of how many transactions you have and what is the right limit for you to fall under.""I do think webMethods is coming under increasing pressure when it comes to their price-to-feature value proposition. It's probably the single biggest strategic risk they have. They're very expensive in their industry. They've been raising the price recently, especially when compared with their competitors.""I would like to see better pricing for the license.""The vendor is flexible with respect to pricing.""It's a good deal for the money that we pay.""The pricing and licensing costs for webMethods are very high, which is the only reason that we might switch to another product.""This is an expensive product and we may replace it with something more reasonably priced."
