What is most valuable?

We originally purchased Cast Iron because of its connections to Salesforce.

How has it helped my organization?

Because it has a graphical developer interface, we can quickly develop solutions that are connecting to anything on the cloud, without having to build those connectors ourselves.

What needs improvement?

I'm happy to see that Swagger is introduced because we're going to combine it with IBM API Connect. I wish it could reach out to the network folders, because that's the one thing we haven't been able to do well with it and that is to get... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for me is the availability of the adapters, which are already made out of the box. My customer then doesn't need to really spend a lot of time getting into production. You name it, SalesForce, or Ariba, whatever be... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Whether it be a CRM, ERP or whatever you want to integrate with, customers get the integration projects done at least 40% ahead of time. That's a great benefit for them and for us.

What do you think of IBM App Connect?

Valuable Features Its reliability and the large number of endpoints for connectivity are valuable features. • Room for Improvement I would like the ability for more than one developer to work on the same project (source control/branch merge).

Though if not designed well, the projects can definitely run out of resources when processing. • Scalability Issues It scales well. We are considering moving to the cloud version, as only one or our endpoints is local...

What do you think of IBM App Connect?

Valuable Features The product is a very simple integration tool with zero or minimal coding effort required. • Improvements to My Organization Our organization deals with multiple systems and we want the data to be available 24/7 across all the systems. IBM App Connect has a robust mechanism to handle such scenarios. • Room for Improvement The audit logging, transaction logging and other such similar features, such as the IBM App Connect cloud instance, need to be improved. • Use of Solution I have used this solution for nine months. • Stability Issues I did not encounter any stability issues. • Scalability Issues I did not encounter any scalability issues. • Customer Service and Technical Support I would give the technical support a 8/10 rating. •...
