  • But even when you need to automate some functions and your tool doesnt give you the option to do it, Automate.io will help you with that.
  • It have way more functionalities that im sure u will be happy to explore.

- great when you need to integrate applications without any message lost or duplicated and when transnationality is important - if you need the highest throughput possible and not much (or not at all) mapping is required, a system like Kafka is more appropriate

  • Just the ability to display and consume data through a single dashboard makes this a great application for our business purposes.
  • With the ability to consume their exposed API, data validation and manipulation becomes a breeze.

Cons
Automate.io
  • Speed. Screens sometimes take a long time to load, and data lists occasionally load very slowly or not at all, requiring a refresh.

  • The development and the transformation capability is not so great. I believe IBM is looking to incorporate some of features of IBM APP Connect into API Connect.
  • The authentications features are no way close to CA API Management (f.k.a Laye r7).
  • The development experience is not as good as Apigee's.
  • The GUI should be improved. Maybe the product team should see the other API management tools in their offering.

It is the best on-premise application to cloud integration in the market. I guess IBM is planning to integrate IBM App Connect with the IBM API Connect solution.

It is brilliantly superb.

You can do some really powerful things with this system. The overall design is an attempt to make configurable some of the routine tasks/common functionality, but allow for development/customization of the core of the application.

Jay from Automate.io has been very helpful in fixing a problem (my fault - I forgot to read the guide), but he did so in a way that he clearly understood my automation objectives and could provide relevant and handy guidance.

Support is good, however it takes longer than expected to get responses. When bugs are reported they often seem to fall into a black hole.

Make sure the person managing it knows APIs and Databases, so they can 'understand' what Automate does and offers. Without such conceptual understanding, Automate is too geeky. WITH such conceptual understanding, Automate is a Church Picnic easy.

We did not select Cast Iron as our iPaaS solution, it was the weakest competitor in the field that we evaluated. Our experience was that it was not nearly as easy to learn, without in-depth training and guidance, and the developer UI was extremely buggy. We subjected each of the vendors to a battery of integrations, from simple to challenging, and it fell short on each one. One of the most simple integrations was grabbing a CSV file from an FTP source, parsing the data, doing a small amount of transformation, then inserting that data into an Azure MSSQL DB. After 2 hours on the phone with the Cast Iron support team, we were still unable to get this working.
