Apache Camel

Message brokering across different systems, with transactionality and the ability to have fine tuned control over what happens using Java (or other languages), instead of a heavy, proprietary languages.One situation that it doesn't fit very well (as far as I have experienced) is when your workflow requires significant data mapping. While possible when using Java tooling, some other visual data mapping tools in other integration frameworks are easier to work with.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM

TIBCO ActiveMatrix is most useful for teams that need help mapping out their processes with other, co-dependent teams. It makes that conversation happen in a logical, structured way. The software is also helpful for professionals that need more data visualization in their business. On the opposite side, the software is not useful for really small businesses. It’s not worth the money.

Pros

Apache Camel

  • Camel has an easy learning curve. It is fairly well documented and there are about 5-6 books on Camel.
  • There is a large user group and blogs devoted to all things Camel and the developers of Camel provide quick answers and have also been very quick to patch Camel, when bugs are reported.
  • Camel integrates well with well known frameworks like Spring, and other middleware products like Apache Karaf and Servicemix.
  • There are over 150 components for the Camel framework that help integrate with diverse software platforms.
  • Camel is also good for creating microservices.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM

  • Workspace and Openspace Console that offers a powerful method for troubleshooting and viewing the routing within a process
  • Easy representation of the corporate organization
  • Powerful IDE to design a business process as a TIBCO Business Studio BPM Edition
  • Testing and Debugging

Cons

Apache Camel

  • I find the "seda" endpoint to be less obvious that it is doing multi-threading than Spring Integration's executor mechanism.
  • Integration with Spring Beans is pretty good, but I believe SI's is a bit better (for obvious reasons, both being Spring products).
  • SI's use support is probably a bit better/faster and I believe the user base is larger so that there are most questions/answers for SI on StackOverflow

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM

  • A little bit too conservative. Not really anything leading edge. [Tibco] has plenty of customers, and that means they will probably be around forever, but [product enhancements] seem to be more [abundant in competitor product offerings].
  • It would be great to have some pre-defined themes. Pie chart labels - it would be great to get more options for sizing and placement.
  • I find it hard to trust the online portal too much. I doubt the security that is offered by this software.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Camel

We chose Apache Camel because it was lightweight, easy to get started with and because it had a groovy DSL since we were a grails shop when we started using it.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM

For BPM we looked at some IBM products suites, BPM Online, Oracle products and Pega Systems. The decision to go with AMX BPM was based on the evaluation by the software architect team and the cost of acquiring the TIBCO suites.

Return on Investment

Apache Camel

  • Apache Camel is open source and Java based. So if your engineering team is strong in Java this could be a good framework to adopt.
  • Apache camel is open source.
  • Camel could be run on OSGi containers like Karaf or Fuse.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM

  • In order to create a BPM management, you need to make a very solid data management model, which becomes very important in its reuse
  • The business process is very often unconnected with the implementation logic and therefore plays in favor of the re-usability of the software
  • Large customization at log level for which managing these tools can be handled minimizing effort
