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.

WebSphere Message Broker

Routing, protocol transformation, message transformation and service aggregation are very well performed by WebSphere Message Broker (WMB). It is not very suitable for integration with databases.

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.

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.

WebSphere Message Broker

Websphere message broker supports a lot more protocols than any other similar tool.

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.

WebSphere Message Broker

  • It helped us in improving the speed to market for our services/APIs.
  • Learning curve is quite long
