What is most valuable?

The IBM B2B Integrator tool, as the name suggests, can be used to manage your trading partner's community and connections centrally, from one single application.

How has it helped my organization?

There are many benefits of this product. One unique instance was when the transaction mapping and transmissions both happened in the same application. We were able to translate the transaction from… more »

What needs improvement?

With the most recent releases of this product, the installation and administration have become much more complex. After SI v5.2.4 there are major changes happened to the product with some new features… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is a bit on the higher side for a small organization. If you have a large organization and have scope for using other IBM products, then you have a chance to negotiate with them.

What other advice do I have?

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate any other products before the choosing this one. During the upgrade, we gave a thought to the Oracle Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution for the same purpose.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features assist with understanding data formats and transforming data.

What needs improvement?

The tool requires you to write a lot of code in Java and XSLT, which makes development tough. There are other tools such as Dell Boomi that do not need as much coding. The initial setup can be made a little easier. Support for microservices is somewhat lacking.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have experience with a few similar solutions from different vendors. One of them is MuleSoft, which is leading in the support for microservices but are concentrating on API-related tasks.

What other advice do I have?

In summary, this is a good product but I would prefer one that requires less code. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is having a full set of tools in one place to create customized business processes, mapping, and connectivity. It includes everything you need for B2B.

How has it helped my organization?

B2B Integrator has reduced manual entry of purchase orders. Everything from the order to fulfillment to the payment process, except for physical packing and shipping, is fully automated for some customer orders.

What needs improvement?

The improvements that need to be made are mostly little things. The Extended Rule windows in the mapper only have two settings: small window or full screen. When working on an elaborate rule, I end up creating it in notepad and then pasting it into the Extended Rule window, which is not convenient.
