"Decent B2B platform"

What do you like best?

Data transformation, business process engine, ease of setting up communication protocols, queue Watcher to monitor queues.

What do you dislike?

Visibility, performance tuning can be a cumbursome affair, documentation, DB bottleneck affecting application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Evaluate other products in the B2B space as well. IBM is committed to having B2Bi on latest technology providing different capabilities, however I feel they are still way behind on some of the other providers for example in Cloud models like PaaS etc. Of course it is a very robust product with excellent transformation and also can handle different business complexities with its business process engine. However you do need very specific skills set to be able to work on this product and requires some time and training. Also the off shelf product doesnt have any framework capabilities which some of the Business Partners offer. So either you do your own development or can leverage.

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

We are solving problems of EDI application which is online always. Customers are able to connect with us with latest technologies in communications and transfer their data and we are able to transform it as needed.

"B2B Integration"

What do you like best?

We like the power that B2Bi provides. Currently use the tool for EDI, MFT, AS2, and custom integration processign over 18 million transactions a year. It allows us a standard approach with enough custom sability to provide for our business.

What do you dislike?

It needs to build better document visibilty and performance dynamic dashboarding for monitoring. We use a 3rd party framework for the visibilty which is good, but would like it built into the core software.

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

We provide custom solutions for our busines communicating between AS400, Mainframe, SAP, POS, and external customers

What Partner Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"evaluation only"

What do you like best?

As one would expect the product comes with thorough and professional techical documenations, demonstrating the level of details the product team went to make sure forward looking and comprehensive.

What do you dislike?

For a small technology company, working on providing solutions with limited time and budget, it is bit challenging to figure out how exactly the product can be integrated with a rather basic product road map with affordability as a priority.. And it is bit easy to get lost with such a broad product and service family within IBM.

"It is very nice tool and provides complete tracking on file end to end."

What do you like best?

We use multiple tools for middleware and this is one of them. Comparing to other middleware tools, IM B2B tool is robust, faster to configure, provides better visibility to the file processing. What was amazing is using less foot print on resources and streams files in GB sizes without issues.

What do you dislike?

When there is something delayed to deliver, we expect some kind of queue monitoring. Control center provides only queue depth monitoring, but if there is something stuck in the queue for longer time from processing proint, it doesn't alert. We opened ticket with IBM support, but leared there is nothing available to track it for now.

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

Most of our useage are around financial and supply chain related.

I liked how efficient the software was and how user-friendly it was as well. The software is intuitive and very user-friendly.

I would highly recommend taking advantage of this software.

"Gets the job done, but needs to catch up with modern apps"

What do you like best?

I like that B2Bi provides a framework to support our B2B processes very customizable.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that there is no real integration with any CI/CD deployment technologies. The product is lacking in easy scalability features, and is late to the game on current modern technologies. Containers is just being supported, as is multi vendor cloud support. Our dual datacenter designs are very difficult to architect and rollout, as there was no native support for active active until recently. Global mailbox is promosing, but has limits on how it can scale in our environment.

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

We are solving the complexities of integrating our internal supply chain applications with our 20,000+ partners.

"Managed File Transfer"

What do you like best?

I appreciate the guaranteed delivery of files to our partners; I am encouraged to know and understand where IBM is taking this product; Will be looking into the Speed add-on for larger files and longer distances.

What do you dislike?

Recently we had challenges with our upgrade to our software and platform for IBM MFT. Additional training and information could benefit the new enhancements and capabilities we leverage and could take advantage of in the future.

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

transfer and receiving secure files to and from our business parnters internally and externally.
