What do you like best?

Complex SOA are simplified using IS, TN, BPM, UM, BPM, CAF and MWS. Using wM on Azure cloud in Docker Microservice - Linux platform. We heavily depend on webMethods for all the integration activities.

Most helpful is the flow we can define in IS. Also with MWS we can monitor all the transactions, user access, TN assets etc. The internal clustering option for each components are also very useful.

Error capturing is also easy.

They also have a strong KEDB for known errors and product usage documentation.

BPM is very good for monitoring the business process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Broker replacement UM is very complicated to understand. Monitoring is not easy for documents flowing in UM. Also setting up the UM Docker container was a challenge.

Another part that needs some improvement is CAF. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

eCommerce journey with wM IS as backbone and B2B conenctivity by TN. We have many internal applications, app DBs, as well as 3rd party applications, APIs which we integrate using webMethods along with CAF application running on MWS.

Software AG support team are very knowledgeable and response time for any support ticket is very good.

We have very complicated settings with webMethods and SAG team even helped us simplifying the solutions by recommending easy code changes in flow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The consultation and services from SAG is incomaparable. I have never seen any product company providing so much content online for the common issues ,the vendors encounters. Also, the consultants from SAG are very prompt , whenever a ticket is raised to provide solutions quickly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Certifications-I recently enquired about taking up the certification from Sydney location .As I am working in webMethods for more than 8+ years , I thought to get myself certified. However, I was being informed that I can give certification only from Bangalore,India or otherwise I would have to wait for atleast 5-10 peope who are interested in giving the certification exam from the location.

I strongly feel that SAG should remove such restrictions and should ease the certification like their competitors(Dell Boomi, Mulesoft etc). Being in the market from so long, they should provide online courses and should even allow people taking up certifications remotely. Also, they should keep the certifications prices very reasonable( I enquired certification, which was 30000 INR .It is very costly for everyone.Not all the companies will reimburse certification charges) .I believe for anyone, learning would be the first step to think if they really want to use webMethods for their integration solutions . If we restrict it ,then we might end up loosing customers,as Mulesoft and Dell Boomi have kept their learning as an open source and much more convinient than SAG. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Keep a watch on the new releases and announcements from SAG. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The Desginer offers many facilities for multilayer development, its lapse of learning and understanding is shorter compared to other 2 BPM tools that I have used previously. In just minutes you can create and deploy a BPMN in the IS without so many complications and the best of all is the broad and easy integration of services through adapters that adapt to almost any back-end. As for the utilitarian libraries, the software includes a very complete public library that facilitates and complements the developments, besides allowing the facility to develop and expose services in java to preference. In my experience I have worked in 2 different banking entities with this tool with successful results. They only have to improve the support and without a doubt the Software AG Designer would become one of the top tools of the BPM market. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

webMethods is a very powerful integration tool wich provides high flexibility when the interface design is complex and highly customised. The good variety of adapters has made integrations to other packaged application very easy. The great availaibity of product/support documentations make self-learning easy and effective. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The application patching/fixes experience is painful. SAG has changed the approach which now release product patches/fixes more often. Due to the short release cycle, some patches/fixes are not thoroughly tested. We had experienced twice that IS core fix has broken a core function in webMethods which gives system administrators very high pressure on regression testing and huge risks for implementtion. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

With the implementation of webMethods in the company, we have modernised the interface design from old, inefficient file based transfer to robust eletronic data intechange. webMethods has empowered business with much better capacility. It provides much better flexibility to handle B2B requests from our customers and suppliers. It also largely reduced the development effort and complexity for our EPR and various different internal systems. It has definitely support the business digital footprint and transformation.
