Flexible and scalable with great pricing options

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution to provide shared infrastructure and shared service to large corporates in South Africa (large retailers). We also use it in other industries and verticals, for them to connect to all of the local banks.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is extremely scalable."
  • "Onboarding on the solution is complex. It's hard to onboard partners and customer suppliers. It's one aspect that is not that straightforward."

What other advice do I have?

Overall, for how we use it and the way our organization is arranged, this solution works very well for us. I'd rate it at a nine out of ten. I would definitely recommend it to other organizations. It's got a lot of scalability built into it and a lot of versatility built into it. It can act as an integration platform, or it can act as a file gateway with multiple articles. It can also meet a lot of your security requirements.

Pretty stable, works well, and allows us to monitor all B2B messages

What is our primary use case?

We use it for B2B transactions with different partners that are going into our backend system.

Pros and Cons

  • "We are able to monitor all B2B messages, and we are able to see or track each message on it from an error perspective. That's a good side of it. It is working well, and we're able to do our current job."
  • "It can be now classified as a legacy system because there are no more updates. From what I know, there will be no updates for the current version, which is an issue. Therefore, we are looking for a compatible new software that we can use. We're currently researching what is there in the market. We would consider something that would give us better speed on our current processor. There is also room for improvement in terms of its scalability and GUI. It is an old system, and its scalability can be improved. Its GUI can also be more appealing."

What other advice do I have?

Our backend is SAP, and it works well with that. If you are using SAP, this is a good option because there is a connector that you can use to connect to SAP. It does the job, and it can support whatever EDI you have. I would rate IBM Sterling B2B Integration Services an eight out of ten.
