Likelihood to Recommend

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.

BE is great for translating business rules to intelligent actions systematically.

  • Dashboard for real-time analysis
  • R-scripting, although the R editor could be improved, there are syntax inconsistencies between R-studio and R-opensource in TSSS
  • Basic statistics and drill down capabilities

Cons

  • Some of the documentation is a little sparse. In particular, its TCP-based routes use an underlying Netty server, and the interactions between Netty's decoder capabilities and Apache Camel's routing/handler capabilities can be a little muddy at times. In general it is clear which routes and endpoints are the more frequently used and which haven't been given as much attention.

  • The product does not scale well as a central manager of rules.
  • It can be difficult to deploy and scale without extensive knowledge of a lot of inner workings of the product, which is not widely available.
  • It is a very heavyweight product, requiring lots of resources with little visibility as to how resources are being utilized.
  • The BE language resembles Java, but is just different enough to have a learning curve and cause issues if one is unfamiliar with it. Plus it is not nearly as flexible as Java.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Camel has been the integration framework of choice, but I was not the person to make the decision to use it. Compared to other competing products like Tibco Business Works, etc., it is free and open source and its licensing policy is acceptable to the management of Cox.

You need a full orchestration suite to perform pre-enrollment checks before storing [them] into the system of records. TIBCO BusinessEvents was bought along with TIBCO BusinessWorks (BW) to design the end to end flow for member contract processing. We were able to get down the processing time to 12 seconds and were also able to increase the first pass rate.

Return on Investment

  • There was certainly a positive impact in terms of code maintainability and ease of implementing new messaging pipelines, however, it's a little difficult to quantify.

  • TIBCO Business Events is the heart of our Fraud Engine. So it does impact our ROI heavily.
