    Code Engine's adaptability makes it a good fit for both solo programmers working on side projects and large teams taking on more ambitious endeavors. IBM Cloud Code engine is a great option for a serverless platform for startups and small enterprises that are using Platform as a Service. It's useful for keeping execution times low and offering generous caps on useful resources.

    It will work connecting to apps like Hubspot. Becomes more crucial if used in a cloud environment. Scribe had many APIs and can support a lot of applications integrating data. If a user doesn't like building rest API and would like a more GUI-like approach then Scribe should be considered as a support tool.

    Pros

    IBM

    • Server-less platform that is automatically managed
    • Pay per use - scale to zero results in an extremely cheap total cost of ownership.
    • There is no need for you to set the size, deploy, or scale container clusters yourself.
    • Auto scaling is always helpful and easy to use.

    • Scribe can dependably map or sync data between systems. When you have different systems being used by many departments, this is the tool to keep the data in-sync!
    • API's are widely used by many applications and companies. Tibco Cloud Integration allows companies to integrate data from an older ERP system with a newer system using an API.
    • Tibco provides the flexibility for business users, developers and anyone in-between to understand where data is moving within their organization.
    • One example of flexibility of the solution is easily manipulating data on the fly.

    Cons

    IBM

    • It is limited to 100 apps per project[.]
    • Documentation - This can be more detailed and exhaustive. It might be intentional as the complexities are hidden away or abstracted to give an easy start for developers.

    • Missing functionality: We like to run all the files available in the FTP when clicking the run button. Right now, we have to click the run button several times (or have multiple solutions) in order to run files from our FTP site one at a time.
    • Generating column fields every time a file changes from the source in the FTP is very tedious. Working in integrations makes me have to go back and forth a lot of the time, and doing this is incredibly annoying.
    • The security is horrendous. We installed an on-premise agent on the customer side, but we don't want them even touching the ETL tool at all. The only knowledge we are fine with knowing and being able to see is that they installed the agent, not the solutions themselves.
    • Our company's connector would have to point to the dataset name rather than dataset ID. It was very frustrating because we change the dataset name a lot, and then we'd have to repoint it.
    • It's very difficult to monitor the different integrations that go on because there isn't a consolidated dashboard.

      We are deeply entrenched in using Tibco Scribe capabilities, and we are only expanding our usage. It would be one thing if we used it only for a one-time data load, but we have several Scribe maps running constantly, keeping business-critical data up to date. And the ease of use for the occasional, mass data update or upload is simply icing on the cake. I'm a big Microsoft fan, so there is potential down the road to convert our Scribe data integrations to Microsoft Flow (or Power Automate as it is now called). But for now, the functionality just isn't there with Flow (Power Automate), plus the work involved to change all our current integrations would be a large undertaking. So for now and the foreseeable future, Scribe will remain our data integration tool of choice.

      Usability

      The overall usability has to lead to better and reliable performance. It has given us the best and reliable planning tools that have enhanced faster achievements of our performance goals. Coding has been made simple and reliable with better application results. All our projects have been implemented fully within the reliable stipulated time.

      As mentioned in the previous sections, setup and maintenance is extremely easy. We don't have many issues for which we need support and there is no need for deep technical skills to use Tibco Cloud Integration platform. The solution provides everything we need for our specific use case, being the replication of our Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM data to our on premise database for reporting.

      We hardly ever experience downtime with TIBCO Scribe. In fact, when we do have issues, it's usually with our own on-prem systems/applications. They do frequent maintenance to keep the product fresh and up-to-date, but most of the time there is no down time involved, and only minor performance degradation. All in all, we are very please with the availability and performance.

      TIBCO Cloud Integration (including BusinessWorks and Scribe)'s performance of the user interface are not to be complained about. The user interface is swift and is a pleasant user experience. The replication jobs take some time to finish but that is because the number of records to be updated/created on a daily basis is quite big. I did split up the jobs between highrunners (entities with a lot of changes) I update on a daily basis and quite stable entities that I update weekly. That solved my issue of a way to long replication.

      For creating new process, you have lots of palettes to do every develop you need. For created process it is easy to understand even if you have ever seen before it. You can analyze your process in all their detail. User Experience is positive for beginner and expertise people. Just debug mode is still raw, but better in TIBCO BusinessWorks 6.x than TIBCO BusinessWorks 5.x .

      Before using TIBCO Businessworks, I participated an official training with a specialized instructor. In this training, I learned what I needed to know to build some applications or web services and how to manage its. It was been very important to me. I understood many technical stuff to familiarize with this powerful platform. I can advice TIBCO Educational Services.

      If we don't design the process correctly, it can do lot of damage (like deleting files or data etc.,) and might assume product issue rather than a design flaw. So it is always recommended to do thorough unit testing , QA and a design review even for a small process to avoid major problems.

      Alternatives Considered

      IBM

      Cloud engine is much easier to use, and gives a very clear interface and control. Each application can be configured differently with ease and changed without having to know anything about different subscription levels or inner workings of the system. Just change the resource numbers and you're done. Also there is no maintenance or even that much planning to do (making sure there are the right amount of resources in a cluster..). This is all taken care of

      We have used Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services previously for various projects including data migration and integration, although the product is free and has very high flexibility it doesnt have the usability and connectors of scribe that allow you to quickly create basic integrations and have normal users manage and review these setups

      We are currently only using TIBCO Scribe in one area of our business, so we haven't had the chance to test out the scalability of the product. We do feel though that it is very flexible, as they have many different connectors for many different products (SQL Dynamics 365, SharePoint, HubSpot, etc.)

      Return on Investment

      IBM

      • Because of its ease of use it only takes one programmer to run it.
      • Code Engine is so simple that it only takes a few hours to have the service ready to be used.
      • Some missing tools make you waste time looking for other services to integrate.

      • The data migration has been extremely slow. Things that should have taken a short amount of time have gone way past where any of us though.
      • Job monitoring has been more resource intensive and time consuming that planned for.
      • Researching and searching for things is time consuming.
      • There is no way to easily organize solutions. So there are hundreds of solutions in the list with no easy way to put them in folders or something like that. The only thing you can do is name them specifically so that you can filter them. But filtering is not very good in Scribe.
      • The concept of Scribe is good. I like the graphical flow builds in the maps. It just doesn't work very well yet. maybe as they improve it.
