If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering IBM DataPower Gateway, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I would recommend working on the physical appliance and not the virtual one. Consider the licensing aspect, and try to evaluate it three to five years ahead. Also, look closely at the competition as there are now quite a few good competitors, and make sure the features suit you best. I would rate IBM DataPower Gateway an eight out of ten.
Definitely, I would recommend this solution to others. I would rate IBM DataPower Gateway a ten out of ten.
I recommend this solution. It is a good security application and it incorporates integrations and the latest security controls that are available in the market. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
This is a good product, although it depends on what country you are working in. My advice is to always seek out IBM support when you have a problem. Overall, this is a good product, and if it were more user-friendly then it might be a perfect score. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
It is a good solution. It's more expensive compared to competitors. IBM charges more for its products. Anybody can use it as their security device and as their multi-protocol handling device. It is compatible with IBM products. I would rate it a seven out of ten. In the next update, I would like to see better development features and more scripting options.
If you've got it, you should use it. If you haven't got it, you probably should be looking at newer products such as SnapLogic. It's a high-speed device. If you need an appliance on-premise, that would be the way to go. If you need to migrate something that's on-premise to the cloud, you could go to the virtual. If you're doing something new, you probably wouldn't touch it.
I'd advise other companies that are implementing the solution to make a narrow scope and be very clear with their scope before starting projects. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
