IBM API Connect

IBM API Connect is well suited for on-premises installation. We also have flexible cloud-hosted plans managed by IBM Cloud. Flexible options for API Security, consumer organization, easier UI-based API development options, and great workflow for product lifecycle management are unparalleled and would be a great fit for any organization.

IBM App Connect

IBM App Connect is ideal for consolidating data from a wide array of sources. It supports multiple file and data formats and handles interconversions seamlessly. Reporting atop this application is also a very straightforward process.

IBM App Connect

  • The UI crashed constantly while trying to develop integrations.
  • The UI was not nearly as intuitive as many of its competitors in the iPaaS space, which lead to a much larger learning curve.

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.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

IBM API Connect

The power of IBM APIC is much more in contrast to Apigee or any other product of the same domain because it is having DataPower as the backbone which allows for easy integrating with almost any platform, providing the highest level of security, handling millions of transactions at wire speed and also capable of transforming the message content as and when required. Secondly, it acts as a unified portal for all the services and we can manage all the API's from a single place and make changes. We can look for any services here, it acts as a repository for all the organization services and we can assign specific audience to specific services.

IBM App Connect

WebSphereCast Iron is preferred for our sales and delivery teams over Informatica. We find the products and teams for WebSphere Cast Iron easier to work with here and find WebSphere Cast Iron better when integrating with non-Salesforce systems. WebSphere Cast Iron struggles to compete with Jitterbit in most customer and project segments when Salesforce is involved in the system integrations. Jitterbit is highly aligned with the Salesforce product roadmap and features, including Lightning Connect and Wave Analytics Cloud.
