National Integration Lead at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Jun 26 2017

What is most valuable?

Version 5.13 is stable and well supported but uses proprietary Dev environment Version 6 moves to open source but is not very stable and not very usable.

How has it helped my organization?

Great integration tool for complex integration environment - large range of adapters and connection software.

What needs improvement?

Version 6 needs more work - stay with 5 unless you have to move.

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

Has reputation for being expensive - there are cheaper alternatives however don't offer the range of adapters or integration experience that TIBCO has.

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

Replaced SAP PI in some areas - much better and easier to implement.

What other advice do I have?

TIBCO seems to be emphasizing on analytics and other areas rather than integration which were its roots.

What is most valuable?

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

I think the pricing of product may be high because it comes with whole set of other tools required for integration. So it will take some time to get the ROI as we implement the solution.

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

I previously used Teradata MDM, and by comparing that I found it better. Currently I am using Informatica MDM, which I found have great features along with a strong ETL tool for integration.

What other advice do I have?

Nowadays there are lot of MDM tools available in market, but I would recommend Tibco MDM if good throughput is required with its integration layer.
