TIBCO B2B Integration Solution

If the environment has many different protocols for data exchange between partners and most of the protocols follow some standards like EDI X12, TIBCO BusinessConnect should be a good tool to take care this business use case.If the environment has a few simple protocols for data exchange, e.g. SFTP, FTPS or emails, some lighter weight tools will be enough and TIBCO BusinessConnect may be an overkill tool.

  • TIBCO BusinessConnect has a good feature called smart routing. It allows users to route a preferred message to a selected downstream process instance. The routing rule could be set based on protocol, sender, receiver, direction, etc.
  • TIBCO BusinessConnect supports EDI protocol very well. It allows a user to import EDI guidelines files to X12 Protocol. The guideline file will provide mapping from EDI to XML and also XML to EDI with validation.
  • TIBCO BusinessConnect is easily integrated with other TIBCO products, like TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks, TIBCO EMS, etc.

Cons

  • The license is very expensive (for a big organization, it is very recommended to have an Enterprise License)
  • In a data flow, only one object contains all activities data (input/output)
  • Sometimes we have to write xml because the graphical designer of flows is not responsive.

The main reason TIBCO BusinessConnect was selected is because of the overall solution it provides with the different TIBCO products. Since TIBCO BusinessWorks and TIBCO Enterprise Message Service are already in place and the canonical model is already built and integrated into the Information Bus, TIBCO BusinessConnect is the best tool to work with them.

Return on Investment

  • Time and energy saved.
  • In the initial stages, this tool is little tuff to understand but will love it once you know how to use it.
  • Powerful tool.

  • TIBCO BusinessConnect allows quick setup for the standard data exchange like EDI X12, which is heavily used in the utility industry.
  • TIBCO BusinessConnect is preferred to use with other TIBCO products, like EMS and TIBCO BusinessWorks. It will be more effective, if other TIBCO products are planned to be used as well.
  • The overall cost for all the TIBCO products may become high, if it's not heavily used. So TIBCO BusinessConnect may not be a good stand-alone tool to use.
