We used this product in the early stages of our company and the main problem it solved was a way to connect to on premise solutions that sat behind a firewall.,On premise integration solution. It provides a way to integrate to any on premise solution with a secure connection to the cloud via the Scribe agent. It supports any kind of source connection. Which means it can be used to provide a solution for legacy products that do not have APIs that can be used for integration. It provides a fairly intuitive workflow for building integrations that lowers the technical overhead required to build an integration.,It does not provide a great solution for high volume, multi-threaded integration problems. It does not handle a JSON source very elegantly requiring (last time I checked) a flat single level JSON structure. Building integrations can become a bit bulky. It needs to provide a solution to build integration workflows in smaller chunks. Error handling could definitely be improved.,6,Self-taught,It was a crucial part of our business in the early stages of our company as we built out our integration strategy. Over time the cost of the platform becomes a bit of a bear especially in light of some of the shortcomings that the product has.,This has not been a feature where we've found value. We just never used it in this way nor did we find a compelling use case for it. Scripting technologies are sometimes less visual but easier and more effective solutions.,We've used products such as Zapier but for a different kind of target market. The pricing of Scribe would be prohibitive in those use cases. Simplifying integration to multiple systems only really works when you have a decent market place that you can tap into and Scribe's market place is not quite there yet.,Scribe relies heavily on the visual designer which can be really slow when it comes to test. Stepping through testing can similarly be a very tedious process. When you compare this to tools that offer an IDE with technologies such as python and the ability to build automated code coverage scripts, this becomes quite a disadvantage.,Scribe is a tool for eliminating integration issuesWe use Scribe to provide near real-time integration of preference and consent data with external third-party endpoints. We can stand up a map and leverage an existing connector, or the generic REST connector to integrate with virtually any API accessible third-party in a matter of days, and in some cases hours.,They have a large collection of existing connectors that allow for quick integration in almost every case. The UI for building maps is competitive with any top shelf ETL tool on the market. The ability to run maps in the cloud or on premise, or in a hybrid environment is incredibly enabling. The sandbox environment makes it easy to build and test maps before hitting a production environment. This should probably be higher up the list. But the error tracking and reprocessing of trans, and detailed error information and download ability is invaluable.,There are connectors that are either missing or are using a subset of the API's functionality, though most of these can be overcome using their generic REST connector. Debugging is great. But is also some limitations that should be addressed. There are number of places where a developer is presented with error messages that need to be ignored, or in some cases can require the user to close their browser and reopen. Some of these could have been addressed since I ran into them. Notification services need to be extended to provide information to users externally without creating an account for them. This is particularly useful for SaaS integrators who are doing the work on behalf of their clients.,10,Online training In-person training,Prior to Scribe we built connectors by manually integrating with 3rd party APIs. I could spend a day listing all of the reasons this was bad, not the least of which is the drain on dev, qa and support resources ongoing. This is particularly painful when the endpoints change. Now we can replicate that process in hours and we have one level 2 support tech that can support all of them. Financially we can charge setup fees for existing or custom connectors which guarantees additional implementation dollars. From a project timeline, it reduces our time from signature to go-live substantially because we rely on a trusted iPaaS solution.,The effort went from a custom development effort that would consume multiple man weeks of combined dev, qa and support resources to hours or days.,I picked Scribe out of a bevvy of selections in this space because it is easy to deploy and it does not require a developer like other tools.,Testing from a Scribe standpoint is good, but not as good as it probably will be. There are some limitations in the debugger such as not being to run debug with hierarchical maps. But most of the problems are with the endpoints versus Scribe.,Tealium EventStream API Hub, SnapLogic, Dell Boomi API Management, Anypoint API Manager and Informatica Enterprise Data IntegrationThe easiest way to replicate our Dynamics 365 CRM data on premiseWe use Tibco Scribe to bring the data from our Dynamics 365 CRM Cloud environment to our on-premise data warehouse. We use this data in our BI environment, where our business users use it to create dashboards and reports. The sync is done on a daily basis using a manually selected set of Dynamics 365 CRM entities.,The setup of both the sending as the receiving side is easy, you don't really need expert skills to set up the "technical" part. We don't need a complicated ETL tool to extract the data from the Cloud environment. The overall management of what needs to be synchronized is straight forward. Thanks to the specific SCRIBE fields in the receiving database we have a track of deleted records (for which we don't have anything in the CRM database).,The synchronization is not fast and seems to do some unnecessary work. Selecting the entities to synchronize is quite tedious, you need to scroll through quite a big list (especially when you have a lot of custom entities) a filter would be welcome. You need to manually update the metadata of the sending connection to see newly created entities, it would be nice if you could schedule those tasks too. We already had quite some situations where MS changed things in the data model of CRM that caused issues in the sync tasks.,8,Self-taught,We didn't need to invest resources in setting up something similar in a more complicated ETL tool. We don't need to worry about keeping this environment up to date, very little maintenance from our end.,Once more setting up a task is very easy. Without extensive training, I was able to set up several jobs across different environments (dev, QA, prod) in a very short period. Also setting up test jobs can be done very quickly and in an easy way without the intervention of technically skilled people.,We only use replication jobs, so we don't use this functionality.,As mentioned earlier we only use replication jobs.Scribe is great point and click tool, but also needs advanced knowledge for even mildly complex integrationsMy organization is using Scribe in for two specific projects/programs that are providing professional energy services to electric utility clients. The solutions is needed to automate integration with excel/text data files that are similar and submitted on a recurring weekly basis. The solution is providing support for only a specific project within a professional services department.,Point and click configuration and solution development - no code speeds up deployments Easy procurement process with training On the fly changes and updates make implementations flexible and easy to update,Excel and text file plugins, connections and clients need some work to improve ease of use and complex integrations The internal TIBCO sales/renewal/support/training teams need to break down silos and talk/work together to provide a better comprehensive service for users Price needs to be more competitive and lower along the lines with similiar product,7,Online training Self-taught,Scribe has reduce data entry, likely reducing man-hours Scribe has reduce data errors, likely increasing user & customer satisfaction Scribe and the per-connection price model is expensive and reducing ROI significantly,Visualizing the data flows increases the ability to deliver solutions, integrations and implementations to end users and customers- and Scribe does that well. Codes and formulas are still required which negates any efficiencies gained from point and click configuration. The procurement process and deploy was within just a day or two so it nice not needing to wait on that to begin setting up the integrations.,I've not used other integration products, but have heard of MuleSoft and Kingswaysoft. From my understanding, Scribe has less functionality but doesn't require coding experience. Scribe needs more connectors such as OneDrive for Business SharePoint and Zendesk. Most of my mapping needs are Excel & text workbooks and integrating those as endpoints is somewhat difficult with the current connector options.,I've not used other integration products, but have heard of MuleSoft and Kingswaysoft. Testing integration flows is easy. From my understanding, Scribe has less functionality but doesn't require coding experience. Most of my mapping needs are Excel & text workbooks and integrating those as endpoints is somewhat difficult with the current connector options.,A powerful, easy to use piece of kits to have in any techies toolkit!We are using TIBCO Scribe Online within our Professional Services department as part of our day-to-day toolkit for helping customers migrate their data from other cloud platforms such as Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics 365 to our own CRM, Workbooks.com. Alongside this, we're in the process of implementing an integration service between a client's backend system and CRM. Workbooks CRM will be the master of the customer data, and we're using Scribe to synchronize accounts and contact data to drive website access rights and content.,Easy to use UI - self explanatory formula builder with lots of built in examples saving time searching for it in a Knowledge Base Powerful range of out of the box connectors for popular vendors opening up lots of migration tools and integration options Extensive API for building integrations around existing apps such as CRM and ERP,Not always clear how you will integrate on premise solutions with cloud solutions, it appears easy with the "on-premise" agent but sometimes lots of hidden infrastructure is needed in place to make it possible,8,Online training In-person training Self-taught,Data migrations from Salesforce to Workbooks used to take several days, if not weeks to export and manipulate the data resulting in a high cost project. Without Scribe we would have to rerun the migration again from the start, as it was often very different to complete delta runs easily. Now, we have created re-usable templates which provide a solution foundation for every project which we can build upon, making migration projects more effective and increasing ROI for our customers.,Let's take an example of a Cloud Based ERP integration to Workbooks CRM that we hadn't done before. With Scribe, providing there is a connector available... we minimize our investigation effort because the necessary API elements of the other system have been carefully thought out from Scribe/Scribe Partner and have been exposed via the easy to use UI. We can easily build out a prototype using the drag and drop UI, and confirm what is/isn't possible very easily helping us to scope out the required effort more accurately. Without Scribe - our process would involve days of investigation (at our expense) to understand the other system's API, and what was possible i.e. which data we could access, how the customer's instance was configured and so on. We'd have to write detailed specs and agree with the customer which ultimately led to custom code being developed and tested... inevitably with bugs being found along the way! Whilst this approach works for the lesser known systems out there, and absolutely still valid. Scribe makes this a lot easier for us.,Very effective. The side by side view of the fields within both systems, which allow drag and drop and an easy to use formula builder that provides clear examples for each help to aid the data mapping exercise.,The debug tool is powerful allowing you to run through an integration step by step. It's easy to use, giving you example inputs/outputs in each step making it (usually) relatively quick to stop the problem with your logic!,ZapierScribe - Complex integrations on a budget.We have used Scribe to migrate data from a legacy SQL Membership database on premise to Dynamics 365 in the cloud. We also use Scribe to process memberships and update data between Dynamics 365 and GP Accounting (on prem). Scribe is also used to bring orders placed on our Web Store platform into Dynamics 365.,Ad hoc updates and corrections to cloud based data sets that do not provide SQL type bulk update tools. Regular scheduled data integration tasks that can run overnight or even hourly. Microsoft Dynamics 365 support is strong - allowing things to be done that Dynamics does not allow such as modifying order line items in a workflow. Data integration tasks can be triggered through API calls for near real-time updates and data synchronization between disparate systems.,We can only work in Scribe for a couple of hours at a time before things slow to a crawl. Closing and re-opening your browser restores the speed. Triggering Scribe Jobs from Dynamics 365 could use better support via a D365 add-in solution from Tibco Testing and trouble-shooting Scribe jobs is slow and cumbersome. It would help to have a "window" into all fields in a record instead of just those that are explicitly used in a job.,7,Online training Self-taught,Scribe has allowed us to take control over many of our data integration tasks by removing the need for coding. These tasks can now be performed entirely by in-house staff instead of hiring outside programming help. Scribe makes it easier for us to keep all our disparate databases synchronized with each other. Scribe provides a means for us to reduce duplicate customer accounts by allowing us to perform data comparisons through lookup options beyond a single key field.,Once we were proficient in the use of Scribe, we were able to create fairly complex integrations in just a couple of days. However, even the simplest ad hoc data updates can take several hours as opposed to writing a simple SQL UPDATE script. Testing Scribe jobs can be difficult since we are performing test on our live databases. Scribe charges for each connection so we choose not to pay for an extra connection to our test databases.,Scribe has worked well for us in data mapping between our data endpoints. We have yet to come across a data integration task that it can't handle. Real-time integrations are the exception, however, we can get close to real-time through the triggered jobs. The speed of mapping thousands of records is also a limiting factor.,Our biggest challenge with testing our Scribe integration jobs is the need to pay for additional endpoints to connect to our test/sandbox databases. Versioning of jobs is also non-existent. Memory leaks in the browser require us to logout of Scribe, close the browser and then log back in several times per day when developing and testing jobs. The more elements in the data tables you work with, the worse this problem gets.,SQL Server Integration ServicesOut of the Box VS In-house DevelopmentScribe is used as a middleware solution. It is used across the whole organization. It does data migration from files and databases to Dynamics 365. Dynamics 365 also communicates with Scribe Online to perform event driven tasks based on Dynamics 365. Scribe Insight translates data from files to Dynamics 365 based a model of "folder watching".,Simplies the process of reading data Increases productivity by passing the buck to purchased software versus in-house development Secures systems by setting up particular users to manage the system,There are too many "Scribes". We have Scribe Insight and Scribe Online. Both require considerable ramp up time. With Scribe Online, we can only choose notifications based and organization names. We would like to also tailor notifications based on subject of email which in 2019 is unavailable. "View All" and "items per page" model always resets.,4,Online training In-person training Self-taught,24 7 processing of data A highly alert system The alerts made the team edgy and there were many errors, especially from Scribe Insight that were unexplainable (IP=17),The visual diagrams used for dts and Scribe Online are interesting but sometimes confusing. It does attempt to solve the issue of skipping actual development however it definetly cause developers to think more outside the box. But the point is productivity not getting developers to think outside the box. Also, there should be more attempts to process data in bulk versus a line by line approach normally presented by most software. By bulk I mean leaving more to the software to determine how to process data instead of line by line web API requests.,The mapping capabilities were very useful. In fact it may have been the most useful feature of the software. Continue in that direction but also journey into a direction in which a user can create maps based on a format and import instead of basing it solely on the use of an interface. This feature may already be included.,This is something our team needs to set aside more time to learn about. Right now the time constraints are tight. We normally do trial and error based on our changes in different environments. Many times we overlook testing because it is done differently in every software/language. Perhaps training would help in this area.,Your Integration Processes -- SimplifiedWithin NORRIQ, both Scribe Online and Scribe Insight are being used for integration purposes between Dynamics CRM and Navision, as well as datamart replication for Reporting. We are a consultancy company that recommends Scribe to our customers based on the project requirements. Generally for integration between Dynamics CRM/365 and Dynamics NAV,Fast and reliable connection & setup between platforms. Low skill requirement for the development of a migration, integration, or replication map. The Scribe Online platform has stability, availability, and performance.,(Scribe Online)Troubleshooting and debugging require more features and decent logging of error messages. (Scribe Online)Advanced technical Scribe users expect more functions and tools for complex integrations.,7,Online training Self-taught,Often when struggling with complex integrations, the troubleshooting & debugging features were insufficient and caused project development to grow way overdue.,Visual creation is a bonus for lower technically skilled users. They can much faster understand the flow of an integration process. For documentation or support afterwards, it's very useful to see the flow and to debug it. For technically advanced users, this can be something of a limiting factor. More complex integrations often require a more advanced set of tools and development methods.,Scribe Online and Insight provide a good overview of Source and Target metadata. As well as maintaining it, new, modified or deleted fields are a matter of refreshing metadata, and they are immediately usable within your integration process mapping. Compared to other integration products, Scribe is about where you would expect to be in this feature, though there is room for improvement.,Scribe Insight provided a very decent and easy to use feature for debugging data integration. You were able to see the input and output of the mapping and also the flow it followed in case of complex integrations where you would jump between different steps. In Scribe Online this feature was less advanced, due to it being an online platform, but because of this, it makes it very difficult to test integration mapping.,SQL Server Integration Services, Microsoft BizTalk Server and Azure Logic AppsScribe Online, pro, cons and when to use.We have been using Scribe for a very long time now. From the On-premise version to the Online version, it’s a product guaranteed to work with all our Dynamics customers. We use it for migration to the Cloud, but also for some integrations where other products require (more) custom coding. This is certainly a pro. Migration requires repeatability, and Scribe allows this easily. Also, logging is clear (most of the time ;-)), but when an error occurs it’s easy to re-run the failed record when you fixed the logic!,Friendly UI. Good logging. Good retry mechanism.,Slow debugging. No easy Deploy mechanism.,8,Online training In-person training Self-taught,The migration License is great. Integrations might be highly priced for some customers.,The UI of Scribe is a big PRO for the product to get started. The more complex it gets, the less it is a fit. There are ways of grouping steps, but that sometimes doesn’t help and you’ll end up with a big map. The lack of deployment methods is a real con. It is a platform, you could build things yourself, but the product could have provided this.,As said, the UI really helps. The mapping screen is somewhat cumbersome, but it allows you to map and create formulas with ease.,There are no CI/CD like testing possibilities. You’ll have to figure that out yourself and build scripts against the platform; doing that allows testing in some form.,SQL Server Integration Services and Azure Logic AppsLow Cost, Low FlexibilityOur organization provides professional services to the Salesforce ecosystem with a heavy focus in state and local government. We leverage Scribe online internally to support migration of legacy customer data to the Salesforce cloud and have recommended and implemented Scribe online for several customers for basic database to salesforce integrations. We have implemented roughly 10 projects using the platform.,less cost prohibitive than other similar tools. most connectors are included with base cost fairly easy to learn and implement generous enterprise licensing model,not strong with complex orchestrations (e.g. orchestrating realtime and batch sequencing) no option to extend integrations with scripting when declarative drag and drop blocks fall short of need doesn't support movement of files/media exception handling is not great,5,Online training Self-taught,Positive - It supports collaborative data migration work Positive - it allows lower cost resources to work on integrations Negative - when the integrations fail it is challenging to investigate, requires human intervention to retry the integrations,Generally the product is pretty quick to market however requires more ongoing maintenance than other products when integrations fail. I have found the documentation a bit lacking and other middleware products have more working recipes/examples which can improve ramp up time and speed to market by seeing how a working integration is implemented and modifying to meet specific customer needs.,Drag and drop data mapping is pretty straightforward however often times the connectors throw cryptic exception messages. The transformation formulas are pretty basic but easy to learn.,Debugging is lacking.,Jitterbit, Informatica Cloud, Dell Boomi, Anypoint Platform and Salesforce Community CloudIntegration made easyAs a D365 Partner for our customers we use Scribe Online as a tool to do integrations with their existing on-premise systems. This provides a seamless integration and allows our customers to run their systems as if they were one and the same.,Easy to access and manage since it is a cloud-based solution Easy to use and understand Provides good debugging and troubleshooting tools,Available templates for existing integrations to help provide a good a starting point,9,Self-taught,Our customers are very happy with the integrations created by this product which has driven more business from them. Easy for me to manage when issues come up since it is hosted in the cloud. I can quickly check on it at any time. Easy to make changes to the integrations, so less time spent when changes are needed.,I believe the creation of the integrations is much more intuitive than other integration products I have used in the past. Even though I never used this tool before it was really easy to create integrations even though I had no training. I was able to create a bi-directional integration with multiple integration points within the budget scope of the project.,It was really easy to use data from multiple endpoints while doing the data mapping. Everything was right there within the data mapping and it just made sense how things were laid out and presented to the user. Within other tools it just isn't as intuitive or readily available within the mappings or in some cases you are forced to do something outside the tool to prepare your data ahead of time.,The debugging within the tools is very powerful. Being able to see the inputs and the outputs for each step within the integration is invaluable. Other tools just give you the end result and not the results at each step.,TIBCO Cloud Integration Rocks!I've been a Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM/CE consultant and a Scribe MVP for many years. I use TIBCO Scribe to implement data migration and integration solutions to my clients. This is includes (but is not limited to) Dynamics 365 CE, Dynamics CRM, Dynamics GP, Dynamics NAV, SAP, Salesforce and other ERP and CRM solutions.,TIBCO Scribe scales very well with the requirements. Everything from small migrations to complex integration scenarios can be done. Adapters/Connectors for many, many systems available Cloud or on-premise solutions can be implemented,System performance depends on source and target systems, but a little more flexibility in tweaking options here would be great I would like to see TIBCO Scribe Insight weighted with the same development priority as TIBCO Scribe Online. Especially concerning support of new software versions, new connectors, UI/design improvements etc.,10,Online training In-person training Self-taught,Positive - Substantial amount of services are being provided with TIBCO Scribe software Negative - integration of Scribe into the TIBCO world has led to much more bureaucracy and longer and more complex processes.,Using TIBCO Scribe makes the integration scenarios much easier in terms of design, development, maintenance, monitoring and handling. The full integration lifecycle is included into one product which offers all possibilities, including management API access to build or include into 3rd party management software when required.,Data mapping is just a click away. Depending on which application is being used (TIBCO Scribe Online or TIBCO Scribe Insight), mapping is done by selecting the source and target field and then just pressing a button OR with drag / drop. Formulas for data manipulation, verification etc. can be easily added. No coding required to achieve complex and good results.,Testing / preview functionality is available in all products from Tibco Scribe I have used so far. You can easily see what would happen and why. Debugging options available as well.,Robust integration tool for the excellent price-pointI am a consultant and have setup and integration for 3 clients so far -- Salesforce to other sources (SQL, CSV files).,Price point - Lots of features for the price point -- perfect for mid-size companies. Excellent Support! Handles most situations well other than CSV files. Ease of use, being able to reprocess the errors, handles SF bulk processing well.,CSV file handling -- difficulty using the CSVLOOKUP function. Can't put NULL as a value, for example, a Date. When using Jitterbit I can put NULL into a date field. So instead I have to check the condition first, and then make basically a duplicate of the map without the update of that one field. Similarly, can't update a lookup field unless I know that ALL rows have a value for that lookup field. Other integration tools handle this.,9,Online training Self-taught,positive -- we have installed Scribe at a few clients and they have been very happy with the implementations.,I believe faster than other integration tools, especially now that I understand the product more.,I appreciate the GUI and the ease of use for mapping.,Testing the maps goes well. I receive valid error logs, and being able to reprocess them is handy.,Good for our simple use caseScribe is being used by one of our business units as a data loader into Salesforce. It allows them to upload data from various systems into Salesforce so that they can generate an engagement dashboard.,The UI is straightforward and easy to use. The feedback system (emails) letting us know of sync failures is good because we know when something is wrong.,Some of the error messages when things fail are not very clear, and it makes troubleshooting slow.,8,Online training Self-taught,We didn't need to spend a lot of time and money to get the business set up (during a time where we didn't have resources available) so we were able to deliver with low impact.,We had all of this set up by a third party -- I do not use the visual flow creation tools.,It works well. Again, this was set up by a third party.,I would put this as moderate. It can be difficult to determine exactly where a field is mapping to. I can see on one side the fields from our DB and on the other side the fields in Salesforce, but it is not very clear which one is mapping to the other. It would be better if I could click on a field on either side and see what matching field it is mapped to.,Scribe is GREAT for simple and medium-weight integrations, especially between cloud platforms and local SQL implementations!We use Scribe to connect our organization's internal SQL databases with our SalesForce implementations.,Replicating data from the SalesForce cloud to local SQL servers. Error reporting for quick troubleshooting. Fairly easy integration map setup.,Often in Scribe, a running solution or map will not show increasing numbers of records processed in the log, although we can see the rows being processed at the destination database using methods outside of Scribe. Could use a better ability to copy/duplicate entire solutions. The ability to set multiple schedules on a single solution.,8,Self-taught,Quick setup and extremely high availability. The cost has been discussed a few times in my presence, however, I am not part of those conversations. Success in objectives thanks to the ease of use and setup.,Extremely efficient when it comes to implementation and setup. On the other hand, often larger data loads can take quite a long time to run, or even never end, and logging does not always indicate why things were running for so long. While the product is incredibly stable, I think there are many improvements that could be made with the user interface.,TIBCO has extremely effective capabilities. However, it has far fewer tools to use than more robust platforms such as WebSphere ESB and Dell Boomi, which I have used in the past. In the case of the implementation that I am using now, this is an asset. It was much easier to set up and maintain than either of those were, and all the advanced features they offer were not needed in the current case. Again, the ability to multi-schedule a solution and better progress tracking are the key difficulties we are having in Scribe.,No difficulty in testing at all outside of the typical firewall issues that often come in to play when setting up integrations and services, which has nothing to do with Scribe itself at all.,WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, Dell Boomi, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Dynamics NAVScribe-- your integration processes to blazing performanceAs a CRM Consultant, our biggest challenge is the high number of ERP (or related) software our customers have. To succeed in any software implementation, data integration is a key factor. Scribe allowed us to concentrate on customer data, making the connection, infrastructure, processing, and all technical stuff completely transparent during the implementation. We no longer are worried about "how will we integrate with customer data," because we know Scribe will allow us to handle it.,Smart and intuitive UI. Simple, yet powerful integration process graphic designer. A lot of different connectors available that go from the simple "direct to database" connection, to a complex "custom" connector like SAP.,Maybe a more "customizable" alert system. Allow us to link different integration processes. I miss the "jump to step" functionality that was on the CLIENT/SERVER application. I am a consultant in Panama. I know that this is not a functionality, but maybe you can create a "low budget" edition, because there are a lot of small companies that maybe could use Scribe, but do have not the budget for it (maybe it is just an issue in Latin countries). Sometimes I find implementations where a "launch an application" on a customer premise, based on data integration, could be a really big feature.,10,Self-taught,I can focus on Data and not on technical stuff. I significantly reduced work hours when doing data integration processes, making my projects more profitable. Maintenance and modification on running data integrations are now possible within just a couple of hours.,Scribe's online interface is extremely intuitive and simple. The way you made your visual creation UI is just smart. I can model a data integration in less than 5 minutes, so that gives me a lot of time for testing / debugging all the processes. In the past, we were having integration projects of 300 hours, and now we can reduce that to 40 hours.,One of the biggest advantages of Scribe is the "auto field retrieval" feature (I know that's not the real name).You just need to set the connectors (endpoints) and Scribe will auto-populate any available object/field/datatype/properties on fields/etc, related to that connector, and you can use all of that for formulas, filters, and direct mapping.,Scribe has a debug screen, where you can see how your integration process is behaving.You can see all the fields of records being used on your integration, compare the values, see how formulas are handling data, the filters, and see if you have errors, all prior to deploying your integration process.,Microsoft Visual Studio CodeTIBCO Cloud IntegrationsAcross the whole organization; mostly for demo/proof of concepts for potential clients (OTT, Inc. is a Scribe partner),Multiple connection options, as well as customization of your own connectors. Allowed for connecting to various systems, even a client's old legacy COBAL based system. REST and allowance to create custom connections, allowed us to close several client deals.,Training for custom connector building is limited. If you are not a developer, learning to create custom connections is something you may have to outsource; it has a very steep learning curve. Some of the basic connectors (i.e. MS Dynamics GP) are a bit more limited than the on-premise version for Scribe Insight.,9,Online training Self-taught,Positive; many clients have reduced the amount of time used to integrate data via older solutions, such as GP Integration Manager Automation of integrations, allows for users to have a more hands off approach; just review error alerts/logs and see expected data in target system, with minimal work. Allowed for a client to be able to generate several hundred orders/invoices on a monthly basis, without user input.,We have utilized various tools for integrations, depending on the clients needs or wants; Scribe compares well with SmartConnect and GP Integration Manager (integrates much faster than IM). With respect to SmartConnect, the performance appears about the same..,Mapping tools are great; preferred mapping UI versus other integrations tools (IM, SmartConnect),Testing on par with others.,Scribe Online - What it can do for you!Our company has been using Scribe Online for three years now, to transport data from our ERP System to our XRM and CRM environment. Scribe has allowed us to offer our internal customers enhanced functionality from being able to access data and perform actions in one environment and have them replicated, transformed and acted upon in our downstream systems. This has helped create a seamless user experience on the front end in our XRM/CRM environment.,Integration with multiple systems (T-SQL, Dynamics GP, MSCRM, SalesForce) Easy to setup and use! Scheduling Jobs,Failure alerts, they go out to all admins instead of specific distros. Scribe on Prem had a wonderful Trigger/Real Time event calling. Online is very limited as far as I can tell.,9,Self-taught,Automation of mundane task - Inventory Transfers, RMA, Sales Order Creation into our ERP System,Scribe's site map is easy to use and pretty easy to see what is going on, it does bog down with larger maps.,Extremely effective out of the box connectors and easy to setup manual connections. Other software out there are limited (Dell Boomi) in the functionality/systems they can connect to, but with scribe you can connect to almost anything that has a DB.,Debug is built in and is simple to follow, error messages could use some work but compared to other integration tools that just fail with little to no information as to why its a big plus.,Excellent software for large/complex migrationsWe used Scribe Online to carry out a large scale CRM 2011 On Prem migration to D365. It specifically helped us manage the migration of data with complex relationships and dependencies. The migration would not have been possible without using Scribe.,Makes the impossible, possible Robustly handles complex relationships in data Robustly manages migration jobs lasting longer than 24 hours,Error handling and diagnostics could be improved. When import jobs fail, its not always clear why The user interface has occasional glitches that can cause frustrations,9,Self-taught,Hard to quantify - it effectively made something that would have been impossible, possible It's cost was easily recouped in terms of both time saved and risk elimination. It paid for itself many times over,The user interface is simple and easy to work with. There are occasional bugs in the UI that really need to be fixed, but these were not show stoppers. The visually led approach to creating the migration was vastly superior to relying on either bespoke coding or hundreds of spreadsheets,Scribe did its job well enough here. It should you what was available on the Source (SQL Server) side and where that data could be placed on the destination (D365) side.,Our only complaint around testing was that Scribe does not write back errors or progress to its error log in real time. For example, importing 100K records might result in no feedback until record 31187. The point at which it would write back some meaningful feedback seemed arbitrary. It would be a great help if it could write back meaningful status updates every few minutes at least,Scribe is the best for data migration.At present, we are using it for data migration from SQL servers to D365. Till now, we have migrated millions of records from SQL to MSCRM using Scribe.,The biggest advantage of Scribe TIBCO is the data being transferred server to server so once we have started in Scribe there is no need to use internet connectivity.,Yes, obviously you have to improve performance while creating a mapping of fields. It will take sometimes more than 2 minutes to load or failed to load.,7,Self-taught,The positive impact is that data transfer is going very smoothly.,The integration flow is created in a very efficient manner. Once you have created a flow then there is no need to create it again and again and also you can import/export facilities provided.,Data mapping has also created either one to one or one button is provided for auto field mapping.,We can test the SQL query in the native query block. This is a good feature provided by TIBCO. Also, we can use a query for testing query syntax.,New user trained and working in Scribe!We currently use Scribe as part of our systems integration. It interacts with Salesforce and NAV. Our Operations and Technology departments are the primary interactors, although it makes possible the work of several other departments.,Allows us to have hands on control of the directionality and flow of data. Allows us to pinpoint areas of concern and troubleshoot them without consultation. Allows us to track data synchronization.,We would like to be able to grant more specific levels of access to different users.,10,Self-taught,It made it possible for us to connect two systems. It did not make it possible for the data to flow back and forth freely between them in a fashion that suited every type of employee.,It is simple to add or edit in Scribe as our systems change. Very adaptable.,I have never used other integration products, but have found this one easy to learn and work in.,Testing is simple and can be done despite any mandates in your flow.Nice product, but there's room for improvementI've used the platform to solve some of our customers' complex integration scenarios. It addresses primarily end to end batch type of integrations with very diverse source types and connectors. I've used it to expose some non public system data through a public Web API. It can also be used to perform to execute codeless one time data manipulation jobs.,Very fast configuration Lots of connectors Very easy to use,The UI gets laggy quite often. Some times it takes some time for the changes to apply. There's room for improvemen in the map editor.,7,Self-taught,I've delivered complex integration scenarios between diverse systems in almost no time.,It's super fast and easy. The only problem I see is, with connectors having lots of metadata the UI gets very slow. This is a time eater unfortunately. The process is comparable to, say, Microsoft Flow.,As of now it's ahead of Microsoft Flow but I think this situation won't be like this forever.,You will need to rely on software based testing through their API. It does not have any kind of integrated test suite.Nice integration tool, recommended for on-prem to cloud migration.We are currently using Scribe Online to migrate and sync our on-prem environments to the cloud.,Mapping. It's pretty easy to map fields in the solutions. Simple to medium logic in dataflows. It's straightforward to do things with medium complexity. Maintain syncronization between envirnonments.,High complexity task becomes difficult to address, you must maintain the logic as simple as possible. Misleading behavior when facing null values. Error reporting.,9,Self-taught,Simplicity in development. Synchronization across databases and servers.,The process is simple, but as a simple process, it gives you simple capabilities in my opinion, when the tasks become harder, creating the solutions becomes harder too. Anyway, using Scribe is way more easy and efficient than migrating with other technologies.,It's very good at data mapping. Definitely its stronger point.,I have not used other products apart of the database engine itself. Testing this kind of solution is very difficult in my opinion, Scribe has a debugging capability that is very useful.,Go-to tool for data integration!!!We use TIBCO Cloud Integration (specifically Scribe Online) to migrate data from one system to another. We use this across the whole organisation. Scribe helps us in handling complex data transformations and helps us in integrating with types of source and target systems.

TIBCO Cloud Integration (including BusinessWorks and Scribe): "Scribe Online Review"

Score 6 out of 10

Integration Testing

Scribe relies heavily on the visual designer which can be really slow when it comes to test. Stepping through testing can similarly be a very tedious process. When you compare this to tools that offer an IDE with technologies such as python and the ability to build automated code coverage scripts, this becomes quite a disadvantage.

Integration Testing

Testing from a Scribe standpoint is good, but not as good as it probably will be. There are some limitations in the debugger such as not being to run debug with hierarchical maps. But most of the problems are with the endpoints versus Scribe.

Integration Testing

I've not used other integration products, but have heard of MuleSoft and Kingswaysoft. Testing integration flows is easy. From my understanding, Scribe has less functionality but doesn't require coding experience. Most of my mapping needs are Excel & text workbooks and integrating those as endpoints is somewhat difficult with the current connector options.

The debug tool is powerful allowing you to run through an integration step by step. It's easy to use, giving you example inputs/outputs in each step making it (usually) relatively quick to stop the problem with your logic!

Integration Testing

Our biggest challenge with testing our Scribe integration jobs is the need to pay for additional endpoints to connect to our test/sandbox databases. Versioning of jobs is also non-existent. Memory leaks in the browser require us to logout of Scribe, close the browser and then log back in several times per day when developing and testing jobs. The more elements in the data tables you work with, the worse this problem gets.

Integration Testing

This is something our team needs to set aside more time to learn about. Right now the time constraints are tight. We normally do trial and error based on our changes in different environments. Many times we overlook testing because it is done differently in every software/language. Perhaps training would help in this area.

Integration Testing

Scribe Insight provided a very decent and easy to use feature for debugging data integration. You were able to see the input and output of the mapping and also the flow it followed in case of complex integrations where you would jump between different steps. In Scribe Online this feature was less advanced, due to it being an online platform, but because of this, it makes it very difficult to test integration mapping.

There are no CI/CD like testing possibilities. You’ll have to figure that out yourself and build scripts against the platform; doing that allows testing in some form.

The debugging within the tools is very powerful. Being able to see the inputs and the outputs for each step within the integration is invaluable. Other tools just give you the end result and not the results at each step.

Integration Testing

I would put this as moderate. It can be difficult to determine exactly where a field is mapping to. I can see on one side the fields from our DB and on the other side the fields in Salesforce, but it is not very clear which one is mapping to the other. It would be better if I could click on a field on either side and see what matching field it is mapped to.

No difficulty in testing at all outside of the typical firewall issues that often come in to play when setting up integrations and services, which has nothing to do with Scribe itself at all.

Scribe has a debug screen, where you can see how your integration process is behaving.
You can see all the fields of records being used on your integration, compare the values, see how formulas are handling data, the filters, and see if you have errors, all prior to deploying your integration process.
