It integrates within our IBM infrastructure.

What other advice do I have?

It's easy to use. I don't think we use it very widely, but it's a critical component. As long as the upgrade goes smoothly, I'll be fine. Don't utilize multiple products. We could have simplified our application by just using the Extender portion along with a few other components, but we just used way too many components in there. That just makes it a little more complex. I'm sure we could have simplified it a lot more. The integration part is good.

It can be integrated with SWIFT, ISO, supply chain, healthcare, Inusrance, logistics and ecommerce standards.

What other advice do I have?

I would strongly advise you to get experienced architects who have used this product extensively in other industries. The WTX suite is a powerful conversion tool that doesn’t consume many resources.
