If you'll be working with 3 or more integration services you might need to use Mule.

Ensemble

  • Best suited for fast development with a fundamental emphasis on object orientation
  • Prohibitive costs for very small integration projects

Pros

  • If you are working with 3 or more services to integrate with a different data source, you'll be able to see the benefits of using Mule.
  • In terms of usability, you can develop an API even not fluent in any programming languages.
  • Mule also provides a lightweight Java-based enterprise service bus.

  • Fast Development.
  • Incredible performance especially in the realm of massive transactional based data systems.
  • Extensive and customizable adapter technologies for integration with just about any system/technology current IT development has need for in this day and age of developing single user interfaces to multiple data sources and/or applications.
  • One of the most secure database technologies available.

Cons

  • Responsive IDE. More likely they need to improve the IDE as it lags whenever you are working with 20-30 APIs in a package.

  • Given that Ensemble and Cache are one of if not the only true fully object orientated database/development technologies for massive transactional data systems its customizability is extensive and it just comes down to the creativity of the developer to get the products to pretty much do whatever they want to do with it. However, this is not necessarily obvious to newcomers to the technology.
  • The developer community could do with greater participation from the software developers/application specialists and engineers within InterSystems.
  • More extensive documentation and greater access to proven working solutions particularly in the realm of some of the lesser known or new and upcoming technologies.

I have yet to raise an issue with InterSystems WRC that they have been unable to resolve to my satisfaction in the 20+ years that I have worked with their products.

There is just no comparison. Try it and see for yourself. Furthermore based on information from software houses I have interacted with over the years it far out paces products like WebSphere.

Return on Investment

  • We noticed a new way for integrating REST services interacting with mobile application (IOS/Android based).
  • Our customer appreciated our work.
  • Our customer appreciated having a very solid production environment while not needing to spend money to maintain it.

  • I was able to develop a fully functional integration engine linking pharmacy systems with pharmacy robotics in less than three months in comparison with the year that the previous software development company had taken to develop a solution that was incomplete and did not work using Microsoft technology.
  • The engine I developed was so stable and adaptable that it quickly replaced the equivalent engine supplied by the robot manufacturers own software development team.
  • It has proven to be so effective that it is now the product of choice for future developments within the organization replacing Microsoft technologies which were the previous company standard.
