Nowadays the industry is moving towards a more open-source operating framework. The cost factor is huge. It's very pricey compared to other open-source stacks. In the future, we'll deal with the IBM Stack so we might move to a compact server and other open-source alternatives which are comparatively less in terms of cost. They should make the solution more lightweight and not bundle everything into a single product. The solution would benefit from having a different licensing model. View full review »

Cloud service offering should be improved because the future is in the utilization of the PaaS provided by principal cloud providers; I mean that it would be very useful to have the possibility to use WebSphere as a service like many other tools has already done. View full review »

The computing resources required to run WAS could be reduced so that we can use a smaller virtual machine to run the application. I would like WAS administration tasks to be completed via scripts, rather than GUI. View full review »

Some things are very difficult to do, so the interface and usage could be more intuitive for those. The main complaint that my customers have about this product is the price. View full review »

The availability of the solution needs improvement. The product should be more enhanced and responsive. We need to have the capabilities to customize it a bit more. Their pricing is always too high. The user interface isn't too impressive. The stability of the solution could be much better. The solution's technical support could be improved. They can be too technical and too detailed.

It should be able to serve more concurrent requests like Oracle. Oracle has more powerful stability, availability, and real-time serving. WebSphere is not light enough to implement high available applications like gateways. But WebSphere has more configuration abilities and customizability. View full review »

In the next release of this solution, I would like to see support for the Arabic language. Better and easier integration with other solutions, such as DB2, would be an improvement. View full review »
