What is most valuable?

The solution has a variety of valuable features. The ESB characteristics are great. The transformation, protocol bridging and routing are great. The list of features on offer are both useful and… more »

How has it helped my organization?

The solution has improved our organization in the sense that it offers new graphical user interfaces and protocols. The fact that they have been made available has helped out business.

What needs improvement?

The monolithic architecture is an issue. Due to the fact that it's a built on monolithic architecture, the solution is not very lightweight. It's not highly productive, so, in that sense, it's not so… more »

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

The pricing is pretty good. We've noticed that it's quite reasonable, whereas, for example, solutions like MuleSoft are rising. Salesforce recently acquired MuleSoft and has grown its market share… more »

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

Although we didn't use another solution per se, we do use MuleSoft. MuleSoft is more lightweight. It's not as monolithic. We use MuleSoft and another IBM solution. However, we've been using IBM… more »

What other advice do I have?

We're IBM customers. We don't have a business relationship with IBM. The solution is deployed on an underlying platform in the traditional MQ. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. I'd rate it… more »

What is most valuable?

The connectivity the solution provides is excellent. There are often too many systems that we have to integrate and this helps with that. The platform itself is very good.

What needs improvement?

I'm not sure of any areas Mule ESB needs to improve. The price of the solution is a little bit high. It would be helpful if different sized businesses had access to different plans. The solution isn't as stable as we'd like it to be. There… more »

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

I'm unsure of the licensing costs. I believe the total price is less than IBM, but it's still rather expensive.

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

We didn't previously use a different solution. We've only been working with MuleSoft.

What other advice do I have?

We're partners of MuleSoft. We provide the solution's service to our clients. The solution would be useful for large organizations. If there are more than three or four systems, and if there is an expansion, it would work best. Small or… more »

What is most valuable?

There are many features of the solution that are quite useful. For us, the most valuable aspect may be visibility.

What needs improvement?

The solution could improve its user interface. The solution could offer better integrations with other solutions.

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

In a previous company, I used a lot of IBM products. At this company, they focus more on SAP, so at this point, I've used various solutions.

What other advice do I have?

We're an SAP partner. We do also deploy some clients to the cloud, but 95% of the work we do with the solution is on-premises. I'd rate the solution six out of ten. I'm an architect, so I don't know enough about the implementation side to… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

It's not a direct evaluation with similar products, however, currently, I am working on a project where I am trying to compare SAP and IBM. It's a storage project for an SAP client. We are comparing two solutions. One with an IBM… more »
