Powerful ESB Platform

What do you like best?

Integration Server are very powerful if well setup and implemented (we process millions of messages per day). Designer tool helps to develop fast, and it is easy to train developers from other technologies to develop webmethods flows.

I like the Innovation Spirit of Software AG and I am confident that the product will be supported and follow technological evolutions for years.

What do you dislike?

Licencing is too expensive. The need to develop monitoring system to have a more convenient monitoring of interfaces running on our platform.

Software AG - WebMethods : One of the Top Class Middleware Tool for an Enterprise

What do you like best?

Overall its one of the top middleware tools which suits the Organisation's need to provide solution in all architectural patterns - like SOA, A2A, A2C, B2B, EDA etc. One of the strongest feature of the product is its Messaging Layer - Universal Messaging that helps you design a topology for all patterns coming under Asynchronous Flows and patterns. The ESB also provides you a wide variety of utility level services which eases your integration development to a great extent.

What do you dislike?

One of the drawbacks of this tool which Software AG is planning to address in its upcoming release is on its Cloud Offerings like providing a multi-tenant Cloud based IPaas which will be a definite advantage for organisations who are moving towards a Cloud based Architecture for their Enterprise needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wait for release of IPaas version. The latest version getting launch has a lot to offer in terms of API Management, Containerisation in Docker etc.

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

WebMethods addresses most of your business problems and provides all the necessary components to help you decouple your Source and Target Systems. The biggest advantage being the ability to move through Transition Architectures to a Target Architecture state with minimal impact on the end systems.

What On-Premise Data Integration solution do you use?

Enterprise business process integration software

What do you like best?

Allows exisitng legacy and modern applications to work together using IS adapters (Websphere MQ Adapter, JMS Adapter, Oracle Apps Adapter , JDBC Adapter), inbuild services like appendToDocumentList etc. with variety of protocols. Integrated platform that includes both service-oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM).BPM allows to develop business process in a graphical way.Business people jumps on-board and particiapte in the design phase. Sandbox Availability for trial and hands-on.

What do you dislike?

Do not have much video tutorials on Internet to understand things quickly. For every new functionality, have to read overall documentation to start implementing. Very few tutes are available convering high level basics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Whole suite by single vendor , be it Integration server, API management , BPM etc. I will say its a wonderful job by Webmehtods by reducing efforts and overhead to maintain different tools from differnet vendors.

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

We are using BPM to develop our business processes. Heterogenous Application Integration is done using Designer Integration Sever. Easy to troubleshoot since it shows graphical flow of message end to end.

Webmethods : A good tool but can improve

What do you like best?

WebMethods is a great service that can allow you to share data between multiple software applications. It comes with a fully designed IDE that gives us access to everything we need to design and develop and complete the job on hand. But every IDE comes with a bit of learning effort. I worked with a team where we were trying to utilize webMethods and overall had a positive experience with webMethods.

What do you dislike?

Some of the product releases were done in a hurry which resulted in issues to upgrade our projects. This brought in a bit of confusion among the team but all in all everything was good in the end. Would suggest to patiently review the releases and release timelines

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

Ignoring the price the product, the benefits of the product are awesome. One has to sit and study the tool carefully and once mastered, there is nothing easier and smooth in the world.

I'am Integration Architect and Business Analyst in new IT architecture project for InterRisk

What do you like best?

Flow language which allows business guys understand data mapping between integrated systems and CDM on webMethods ESB.

Part of API Gateway I mean Enterprise Gateway which allows to meet requirements of Polish Insurance Market Regulator.

What do you dislike?

So far I did not recognize anything that I should say that I dislike.

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

On-line integration between Portal for Intermediaries (Agents, Brokers) and Back End system

(current integration was based on xml files stored on FTP daily but not on-line)

More secured integration. Portal is in DMZ, Back End in LAN that's why we decided to use Enterprise Gateway to meet requirements of Polish Insurance Market Regulator.

(The connection must be initiated from LAN to DMZ).

Easy to learn and adapt Middleware Technology using webMethod

What do you like best?

Web Methods services are mostly Java based service model and it is very easy to understand all predefined objects. Also, it is easy for Java based front-end developers can easily understand and learn the web method middleware products & become expertise in middleware.

What do you dislike?

The unique webMethod designer tool is a bit hard to adaptable by other middleware users who are using IBM Integration Bus, TIBCO Active Metric and etc., The competitor's products are easy to develop designer based workflow, but webMethod has it sequential node based workflow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy of Use and All products are tied up in one place for your middleware requirement.

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

Service Oriented Architecture Middleware platform architecture can be easily build with webMethods. It has good compatibility to integrate with other third party product like DataPower, API Management and etc.,
