Snaplogic is unique from other IPASS tools if you're very sensitive about data security as they have an on-premise option where your data never needs to leave your data center. And data pipelines can be quickly created if Snaplogic has the requisite connector to your data sources. On the downside, if you're transforming a large amount of data for example in training machine learning models, a tool with elastic compute capability is more appropriate.

If the environment has many different protocols for data exchange between partners and most of the protocols follow some standards like EDI X12, TIBCO BusinessConnect should be a good tool to take care this business use case. If the environment has a few simple protocols for data exchange, e.g. SFTP, FTPS or emails, some lighter weight tools will be enough and TIBCO BusinessConnect may be an overkill tool.
Read full review Pros Easy access to any type of source system. Data could be in any format. Very beautiful visual representation of transforms that makes it super easy to use it by any non developer. It can be run in cloud or on-premise. helping you choose your comfort of security. Has pretty good customer support and have recently started their community forum as well. Read full review TIBCO EDISIM supports customizing X12 messages as per client requirment. TIBCO EDISIM supports exporting customized messages to EDItoXML and XML to EDI transformation artifacts. BusinessConnect engine architecture processes customized messages (an organization can customize message as per their need). TIBCO BusinessConnect supports multiple hosts to exchange messages. One can build B2B hub/platform using this feature. Read full review Cons They need to have a way to connect to GitHub to allow the users to maintain their version control in GitHub. This is a missing functionality. As pipelines become complex, it's difficult to have all the snaps stitched together - just like to see it done differently. They do not have a way to start/stop a preview. This is hard to use, especially if you have to stop an accidental preview invocation.

There were missing functionalities from the previous versions which were not identified ahead of time. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
This has been hands down the BEST software company I have ever used and dealt with. I am a 25 year IT veteran at this college. They go above and beyond in soliciting our feedback/input and proactively follow up about bugs, issues, etc. I have given multiple potential clients my thoughts and after seeing the SL demo they all sign up. I appreciate their support model, it's REFRESHING!

It is very powerful but has a steep learning curve

They can be prompt but they have not been as useful as I've wanted. We had a bug that affected many of our customers through an API connection between SnapLogic and our platform. Eventually they were able to figure it out, but it took a long time of negotiating between our engineering team and theirs. Additionally, we installed the SnapLogic groundplex for our customers and we've run into a bunch of problems of connectivity. If SnapLogic offered to be on those calls with our clients to troubleshoot how to fix these problems, I would give them a better grade here.

The groundplex in our VPC is very nice for security reasons and the SnapLogic team was extremely helpful during our implementation

We opted for SnapLogic due its ease of use and the flexibility it offers, it was the platform that was strongest in both application integration and data integration and both were use cases we wanted to be able to cover.

The main reason TIBCO BusinessConnect was selected is because of the overall solution it provides with the different TIBCO products. Since TIBCO BusinessWorks and TIBCO Enterprise Message Service are already in place and the canonical model is already built and integrated into the Information Bus, TIBCO BusinessConnect is the best tool to work with them.
