Intuitive tool

What do you like best?

-Cast Iron is easy to learn, intuitive layout of the product and creating a feed is simple

-Handles large amounts of data easily (at least with on-premise)

What do you dislike?

-Wish there were more user level to help with SOX concerns

-wish that with our physical appliances, we could load balance across several appliances so that we can mange from one WMC

Recommendations to others considering the product

I believe they are reducing support and/or eliminating the ability to have on-premise appliances in favor of using cloud based versions. We have benefited from on-premise, especially in that it handles large amounts of data better.

IBM also doesn't seem to be investing in additional features, endpoints, etc especially when compared to competitors

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Cast Iron to do the following:

-Integrate our product databases with Salesforce

-Send and receive files with external stakeholders via FTP

-Generate reports for internal stakeholders

-Connect with various other cloud based vendors

You get the benefits of the cloud - other than that it's an Integration Bus

What do you like best?

Having it on the cloud means that there is really no overhead to set up the servers and install the product. Same goes for upgrading the hardware. Unfortunately due to prior experience This overhead with most IBM products is quite big and we are very happy to avoid it.

On other points I would mention of course, the security and reliability of the cloud.

What do you dislike?

Development has to be done traditionally on normal developer machines. Unfortunately the development environment is not what you would call sleek and developers complain about losing time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have the on-site integration bus then it's definitely worth it to at least try the cloud version.

If not then make sure that this is the right solution for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sovling: Enterprise integration problems

Benefits: Reusability, Scalability

the best Hybrid cloud platform for me

What do you like best?

What I like the best with IBM Integration Bus on cloud is the support they are offering. This is the first time I have hands-on experience with cloud and IBM integration bus made it easy for me to learn it. They explain everything to me in details those things I don't know

What do you dislike?

The support SLA, for every service down ticket, I wish that the SLA response would be just 30 minutes instead of an hour

Recommendations to others considering the product

The price is cheap compared to others, plus you will get discounts too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are integrating all our software/platforms with cloud as we all know cloud would be the future.

IBM Integration Bus

What do you like best?

Very stable Enterprise Data Integration product from IBM, its been in market for more than a decade with different names and currently its being called IBM Integration Bus. Have used it from v8, easy to install and administer, lot of adapters to connect with different third party software. With the latest versions, MQ dependency has been removed and makes it a much more feasible for SOA implementation in an organization.

What do you dislike?

Adapters for cloud application can be added in toolkit e.g, salesforce.com. Heard newer versions might be an hardware appliance which might be costlier than the earlier software installations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integration of different internal and external software applications.
