A pretty good solution with helpful plugins and reasonable pricing

Pros and Cons

  • "Overall it is a pretty good solution."
  • "The interface console is very slow. Even in production, we need to increase the RAM or CPU. And even after that, the performance is still not good in production."

What other advice do I have?

We aren't using the latest version of the solution. We're working on an older one right now. After more than a decade of working with the product, I can say that it is a pretty good solution. That said, before buying, a company needs to take into account their overall infrastructure to understand the volume of data they will need to process, et cetera. Based on those requirements, you'll need to find a product that works for you. While I like Oracle, there's no denying the support issues. Overall, I would rate the solution at a nine out of ten.

Functional message delivery service, but there are issues with monitoring

What is our primary use case?

I'm an integration architect and we're a customer of Oracle.

Pros and Cons

  • "The ability to master the process in one location."
  • "There are issues, especially if you want to create some compensation in your service bin."

What other advice do I have?

This is a good product, not an exceptional product. You could say it's a bit greedy as it requires lots of additional resources because you have to deploy the database and then ESB on top of that. But if you have the resources and people, it's a good product. I would rate this product seven out of 10.

Oracle a good product. It can be used for the integration of this solution. I have only received positive feedback for this solution. The features are good. It's sufficient for us. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Has good reporting and adapters, and easily integrates with other applications

What is our primary use case?

We are an IT solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients. We have competencies in different ESB products including Mulesoft ESB, Oracle Service Bus, and Microsoft BizTalk.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the adapters."
  • "This solution would benefit from having more cloud-based adapters."

What other advice do I have?

The suitability of this solution depends on the customer's environment and requirements. For situations where they are many integration points, whether they are on-premises or in the cloud, this is a good solution. Overall, this is a good solution from the user's perspective, but it is a little bit complex to manage. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Quite stable with a very good set of features

What is our primary use case?

We are currently primarily using the solution for an energy company that is looking to remove the endpoint integration that they have. They want to move to an Applications Federation BOT. That's how we are seeing critical severity loss into the solution. Instead of having the point-to-point integration, we want to implement it as an Enterprise Service Bus.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is quite stable overall. We haven't witnessed any performance issues so far."
  • "The initial setup is likely complex for many organizations."

What other advice do I have?

I'm not a customer. I represent a company in charge of integrating solutions for customers, specifically for our customers. We're a partner and implementor. In general, I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten. Even with the difficulties around licensing, the solution itself is quite good and reliable.

Good connectors for interfacing with other applications, but the technical support needs to be improved

What is our primary use case?

We are using Oracle Service Bus to connect between API management and microservices. For example, we use it for data transformation, bringing data from a specific form in one service to another form in a different service.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature of this solution is that you can connect with different applications."
  • "This solution should work better with RESTful services."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to study the architecture that they want to implement very well. That way, they won't have to have repeated flows that do the same work. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
