Magic xpa Application Platform

In our experience, the product performs really well when interfacing systems with ERP's through SQL server database tables, but we've even made some interfaces with the web service functionality included with the magic xpi integration platform. Also, we've made some SAP Business One - SAP Business One interfaces, for copying information from one company to another and even between two different ERP systems.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix Service Grid

It fits perfectly for SOA and EAI architecture with large numbers of services that required to be wired to each other, the binding virtualization is quite good to simply this part. For the simple scenario of orchestration and /or ESB architecture could be a better use traditional stack.

Cons

Magic xpa Application Platform

  • Although the scenarios may be online, the main service usually freezes and the processes can't transact any data. With a single restart of the service, the processes will be functioning again.
  • The support for more applications would be nice, even though there is a nice number of them. Most of the main applications in the market are supported.
  • The licensing for the software may be a little confusing; you can't buy individual licenses as they come in packages of four.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix Service Grid

  • health check of services and application features has been released with a lot of bugs that have never been fixed
  • it is not so simple to apply the security policy to service/reference binding

Alternatives Considered

Magic xpa Application Platform

Honestly, we have only used and evaluated magic xpi/xpa platforms because of the recommendation of our SAP Business One main supplier, who has previously used the platform for their developments. So far, we have no regrets with the acquisition of the platform and we are very happy with its performance.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix Service Grid

TIBCO service grid has been chosen as a natural selection of the TIBCO product evolution. The high flexibility and the binding virtualization fits very well with client needs for its EAI applications due to the huge number of services and applications, the management of application dependencies during deployment, the advantage of perfect integration with EMS for logging

Return on Investment

Magic xpa Application Platform

  • The implementation time for this kind of projects has been greatly reduced.
  • Certifying an In-House resource in the Magix xpi and xpa platforms is probably the best option, considering all of the projects that can be developed in the future without the need of an external consultant.
  • The processes that have been automatized with the Magic xpi platform helped reduce human error and the time those processes took to finish.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix Service Grid

  • The integration of old BW with BWSE and its interface quite similar to design time has reduced the cost of training for developers
  • The TIBCO support for this product is no the best and clients complains too much about this. This required to find a workaround or force the client to move to new/or different product. Huge impact on ROI
