    GoAnywhere is easy to use and easy to learn. Once you get the basics down learning how to do advanced functions becomes even easier. Their support is top notch and is always ready to lend a hand.

    IBM

    It is best suited to products and companies which extensively use IBM cloud and other cloud hosted services by IBM. This is because since the existing interface is a little challenging to use, IBM's own products and platform is well integrated with IBM Aspera on Cloud and there's relatively little work for the integration team

    Pros

    HelpSystems

    • Data extraction: You can pull data from nearly any database and send it to users/partners in a variety of formats.
    • Data transformation: Great for massaging data and transforming it to XML, text, spreadsheets, etc.
    • Data Integration: An extremely useful tool for moving data between different systems. I have used it to integrate data from Oracle, Netezza, DB2, SQL Server, and even Interbase.

    • Ease of use: the Graphical User Interface doesn't require technical know-how to operate
    • Delivery Receipts: this allows us the confidence to know our files have reached our customers
    • Activity Monitor: lets you know how much data you have used, which is important for budgeting reasons.

    Cons

    HelpSystems

    • Reviewing support cases on support web site.
    • Testing remote resources is limited without creating a project.
    • With so many features, it can take awhile to master it.

    IBM

    • Track upload/download usage OVERALL to know how much space is left
    • Track cloud storage overall to know how much space is left
    • More easily send single links to users for download, rather than full access (I know it is possible, but it is not intuitive)

      The support from IBM is fast and reliable. Very knowledgeable engineers provide you with the support on Aspera. We had a very good experience when opened tickets and we were able to get our issues resolved quickly. Most solutions are provided within a day so you can expect a quick turnaround time. Overall, the support has been very good.

      Implementation was straight forward. We paid for 50 hours of professional service in case, we need help. We end using only 10 hours. I have only 1 month to convert over 120 scripts from FTP voyager to goanywhere. Old script was had written using bat files. Some of the batch file were written by some other person, who passed away. Documents for old script was not in details. With the professional service, I was able to convert all script within windows

      The service provided by the authorized vendor was excellent. It was a good collaboration between the vendor IT team and internal IT team. They provided us with a timeline and we verified and approved that timeline. Daily stand ups and weekly meetups were conducted to update the internal team on progress. They were able to deliver all deliverables on time also, they conducted both alpha testing and beta version testing in time. Overall, they were able to complete the implementation in the given timeline.

      Alternatives Considered

      HelpSystems

      • GoAnywhere adds features as extra modules, allowing you to start with the most basic file transferring solution and scaling up as you find other uses. Adding more modules means that you are building on an existing platform, and you will not need to seek out other vendors.
      • Compared to other products such as MoveIt, the projects can take more time to create as it seems less intuitive than MoveIt but adds to its potential as you learn the many extra functions available.

      Aspera comes with IBM cloud so there isn’t really a choice. Since it’s built-in, it integrates well and there was no need to buy another solution. Therefore, I did not consider other options. It worked fine, gave access files, push data securely, and did it faster than standard HTTPS.

      Return on Investment

      HelpSystems

      IBM

      • Aspera has changed the way we do business. We are now able to share huge file sets electronically, saving on external drives, shipping costs, time, and effort.
      • Our industry is very slow to commit to electronic alternatives to physical media. In less than three years, the positive results of using this service have caused over 70% of our user base to fully commit to electronic delivery, with the number of physical fulfillments quickly being driven toward zero.
      • Transfers within our own company, which formerly relied solely on FTP/HTTP transfer drives that would take days now take minutes with Aspera. Our software team relies on the speed and accuracy of the transfers.
