Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The solution is very scalable. It can handle a lot. We have encryption plus integration servers running on that platform currently.""The solution is stable. We haven't had any serious technical issues.""It is user friendly, it's not complex.""The most valuable features are the stability and the time to market.""The most valuable part of the solution is the ease-of-use and ease of deployment.""The most important thing is that it is easy for developers to work with."

More TIBCO BusinessWorks Pros »

"We find it effortless to set up. We really don't have to do anything other than finding the application in the Zapier catalog. And as long as the application has been re-integrated into Zapier, they're able to then just provide the connection details and hook it up."

Cons
"Technical support is average. It's not the best.""I'd like to see a new cloud approach in the next release. They need to work on integrations, stability and management issues on their cloud platform.""They don't support out of the box - you have to buy adapters or you have to have the technology.""There are not many plugins available to integrate the databases. We have to write it in Java and integrate it. The developers should have more knowledge. These are the three main aspects that they could improve.""The container-based image is too large and this makes auto-scaling difficult.""The cost of this product is too expensive for smaller companies or those with a small number of integrations."

More TIBCO BusinessWorks Cons »

"System-to-system is fine, but when it comes to system-to-user, where Zapier is helping to communicate to a user, that's a one-way communication. If that user has to perform some action on that notification, the action isn't handled by Zapier. So there's no way to orchestrate that and it's very cumbersome."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"My understanding is that the licensing is very costly."

More TIBCO BusinessWorks Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It's very straightforward licensing. There's only one cost you have to pay, and if you want a relevant pricing plan, I think you have two or three different models or packages which include the number of notifications or Zaps, as they call it, that you can program."

Overview
TIBCO BusinessWorks allows to connect applications, whether on-premises or in the cloud, providing proven reliability and scalability, out-of-the-box. With a drag-and-drop graphical development environment, TIBCO BusinessWorks eliminates the pain and cost of point-to-point application integration, connecting and unifying business processes across applications, data sources, and APIs, with access to real-time data across all your platforms.

Zapier is a tool for primarily non-technical users to connect together web apps.

An integration between two apps is called a Zap. A Zap is made up of a Trigger and one or more Actions or Searches.

Whenever the trigger happens in one app, Zapier will automatically perform the actions or searches in another app in order.

Zaps are very lightweight and easy to set up. Zaps do not import or export old data (they only operate on new items created after the Zap is enabled). Zaps are also not kept in sync ("two way syncing") after the Zap is triggered.

Zaps are deceivingly simple if you're used to dealing with complex and difficult integrations. Their simplicity is what enables anyone to create them.
