In a world of cloud, one should expect a high rate of security, and the lowest possible errors in the context of sharing. IBM B2B Cloud Services has proved to be well-programmed unit still but it has much to achieve. We couldn't trust on B2B Cloud Services as we had expected more from an IBM group. It is a strategic decision to which cloud services we can use. The problem it has solved well is the team integrity with access to transparency has increased, hence giving us a good platform.
  • In every deployment of a product it came handy in testing.
  • Smooth Transitioning between documents
  • Good client support
  • Can't rely on huge data sets
  • Organizations is huge, it's tough to handle
  • Limited feature sets
IBM B2B cloud services is well suited for [smaller] organizations. It has smooth transitioning services, good customer support. It has given good transparency. Good sharing capabilities. But, it is not well suited for large organizations. It won't be able to support large datasets, so it is not yet proven for large organizations.

IBM B2B Cloud Services is currently used to help produce outreach driven campaigns via email, automate information sessions, and reporting tools. It is a rock solid platform for marketing and outreach platforms. The service helps to streamline client communications and to improve interactions between clients and organizations.
  • The product works well with CRM packages like Microsoft CRM.
  • It provides a well designed, automated system of marketing communications with limited interactions from staff.
  • The system works very well with different types of platforms including mobile web services.
  • For some the product can be difficult to learn and utility without some training.
  • The product really requires users that have backgrounds in CRM platforms or marketing analysis to fully utilize.
  • For small organizations, the product can be more expensive and feature rich than what is needed.
The product is really well suited for organizations that do a great deal of marketing, outreach, or external communications with a base of clients. It shines with its ability to produce in-depth analysis and reports of marketing efforts. It can run fairly well on an automated basis for continual lines of communication with prospective clients. For smaller organizations with limited marketing needs, the service can be an overkill with its many features.

IBM B2B Cloud Services is being used initially by my department as a proof of concept. We are using it to integrate our department's B2B processes into one central gateway. This will allow us to be able to better manage, monitor and maintain those processes to ensure we are getting the most out of our B2B integrations with various companies.
  • Provides a single gateway for all our increasingly complex B2B processes with our business partners.
  • Ensure we are adhering to the latest standards.
  • We like that we no longer have to manage our own servers and infrastructure. All that is taken care of in this Cloud-based architecture.
  • The learning curve is steep on this product. My group had to do a lot of training to feel like we were up to speed on the product.
  • I would definitely recommend some in-house training for employees about to use this product. This will help employees get the most out of the product for a better ROI.
  • The user interface could use a refresh. Seems to be a bit stale compared to a few other products we looked at.
We have just started to use IBM B2B Cloud Services within our department. We were looking for a cloud-based solution to manage all of our partner's B2B processes within a single interface. We did not want to have to go through the hassle of managing any sort of solution ourselves; thus, we came to the conclusion that a cloud-based solution would work best for our department.

So far, we have found that the product has been reliable, and not having to worry about maintenance and patch cycles is always a good thing.
