Senior Software Engineer at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees

What is most valuable?

* One solution for all integration. * Fault tolerance. We rarely get hanged processes. Therefore, it is reliable. * We can code in Java, which is really good feature. There is very vast command available, which can be used in mapping.

How has it helped my organization?

Benefit of Seeburger to GenTran (which we most recently had): In GenTran, if any batches had incorrect data, whole batches got errored out. While in Seeburger, only that particular data gets impacted. It allows other batches to flow.

What needs improvement?

Difficult in handling large amounts of data, like when the file has more than 100MB in size. Therefore, our organization had to purchase another server to deal with this. I would like there to be a feature that could handle the limited server.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We recently migrated from the GenTran mapping tool to Seeburger.

What is most valuable?

We can integrate any custom Java program directly with Seeburger BIS Suite. Most of the components are loosely coupled.

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped our organization to integrate with different systems, by having different integration methods seamlessly.

What needs improvement?

The documentation can be improved.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is the best product that there is in the market.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did migrate a few IBM Systems with the Seeburger, as the licensing cost is less and it gives the same flavor as the BIS Suite.

What other advice do I have?

It is a great product to work with, especially with their new cloud solution. Companies do not have to worry about any in-house infrastructure.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated TIBCO and Axway System Integrator (SI).

The licensing model is fair. You normally get a production license along with a stand-by license and a test/QA license for testing. The customer can be flexible to some… more»

Error messages in the main area that could be better, but you can say that about any product. The Front-End Monitoring tool part of Seeburger BIS 6, is a Java Web… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm a developer, so I don't know about pricing.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We needed to upgrade our previous EDI tool. That tool did not have a migration path. We looked at many EDI tools and chose SB BIS as the best one available.

What other advice do I have?

SB BIS is hard to beat if you: * Process thousands of transactions a day * Do business in more than one country * If you are an SAP shop We are an SAP shop and SB BIS… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No comment. We chose what we thought was the best.
