We have been using webMethods Trading Network on top of webMethods Integration Server as our integration platform, which represents our enterprise service broker for all application-to-application (A2A) and business-to-business (B2B) integration at our organization for almost 20 years, and it has been a very successful platform and has provided and continues to provide excellent value to the business.
  • Business-to-business integration
  • Integration standards support
  • Ease of use and speed of delivery
  • Vendor is slow to add new features
  • Performance scales with underlying database performance
  • Use of My webMethods to administrate trading networks is clunky and slow
webMethods Trading Networks is an excellent choice for a business-to-business (B2B) gateway platform, for sending and receiving messages to/from external trading partner organizations. It excels at making it easy to define new interfaces and provides robust mechanisms for ensuring successful message delivery and processing through automatic retries. We also use it successfully for all our application-to-application (A2A) integration, which many would believe is beyond the scope of what webMethods Trading Network is good for; however, we have made it work and it has been very successful in our organization. I would not recommend using webMethods Trading Network for integration that requires low-latency or high-bandwidth data transfers. It is much better suited to shipping reasonable sized XML or JSON or flat file messages (less than 100 mb) around in situations that do not need sub-second latency. If you have low-latency or high-bandwidth needs, you should use a product more focussed on eventing, such as Kafka, for example.
  • Transaction visibility provides the ability to query and inspect and audit each transaction and what happened after the fact
  • Good extensibility mechanisms, which we have used to our advantage to bend trading networks to also serve our application-to-application (A2A) integration needs
  • Delivery queues let us pause message processing to better manage downstream application/partner outages
  • Improved time to market for new A2A and B2B interfaces
  • Ability to support modern standards with B2B partners
  • Improved supportability and robustness when compared to the previous bespoke custom solution it replaced
We had a shootout between multiple competing products and ended up choosing to implement and use webMethods Trading Network because it was and remains the best-in-class business-to-business (B2B) gateway product. Its pricing was acceptable to us, and we were able to figure out a way to use it to support all our application-to-application (A2A) integration needs also, which drove up the value of the platform for us.

webMethods Trading Network is being used by our whole organization. It allows us to set up our suppliers and distributors as trading network profiles. This allows us to exchange business documents such as EDI, RosettaNet, and CXML with our partners electronically. Transaction search is also helpful to track any document for analysis if needed.
  • Document tracking
  • Efficient partner management
  • Set up trading partners with connectivity information
  • Certificate management
  • More document types support is needed
  • More DB types support
webMethods Trading Network is efficient for multiple partner onboarding and maintenance. Document tracking is one great feature. Resubmission of documents with data modifications is very helpful.
  • Increased order processing
  • Resubmission of data
  • Increased revenue
  • Automated data exchange
Ease of use and robustness of the product.
