My favorite feature is the XML-based DFDL mapping, which is a tool that allows you to graphically map legacy data formats to modern data formats.

Easy to understand documentation with a huge list of examples and tutorials.
Web interface, REST API for viewing services, admin, stats, and deployment are premium features, which makes IIB stand among its competition.
REST API design and development support are useful. Building and exposing APIs using GUI API designer with editor makes implementation a breeze.
IBM support is fantastic and quick.

From a performance point of view, it's very good and it doesn't need very much in terms of CPU resources.

IBM Integration Bus has a complete set of tools that are implemented between rules when it comes to run time, but it's not easy to understand.

Development toolkit (based on Eclipse) should be improved in terms of responsiveness.
Current aggregation implementation should be deprecated. MQ independent, as well as an intuitive solution, should be proposed.

IBM does not support orchestration, which is how they designed it, and other BPM tools in the market support orchestration. If they merged the BPM capability into this product, then it would be a better solution.

This product uses the PVU (Processor Value Unit) license model from IBM, and it is something that should be improved.

I would like to see more metered rest and API support. IBM is already working on it on Version 11, but it still needs improvement.
