Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Cloud Integration (including BusinessWorks and Scribe)

TIBCO Scribe is used for both data migrations and data integrations for our clients.
  • Data migration.
  • Data integration.
  • Complex/conditional mapping.
  • No in-built templates or solutions for common platforms.
  • Provisioning for clients is below an acceptable level - usually errors and not timely.
  • Support is poor - there is very little assistance provided, and no assistance on anything related to mapping of data or use of the product.
  • Interface itself is very slow and laggy for us in Australia.
  • Provided a good ROI prior to the introduction of solutions such as CDS Data Integration.
  • Provisioning issues and poor performance mean it can take a long time to develop and test solutions.
  • The solution is expensive and cost prohibitive for many clients.
PowerApps data integration in CDS may overtake TIBCO Scribe as our product of choice for migration/integration when fully operational. Kingswaysoft is another solution used, but relies heavily on SQL SSIS skills.
  • Online training
  • Self-taught
Training is limited and doesn't go into complex scenarios, you must learn on the job and figure out most things yourself.
You need a good understanding of the source and destination platforms at a schema level - as display names for fields are not easily visible.
Scribe is useful for migrating customers from other CRM platforms (or earlier versions of D365) to Dynamics 365 Cloud solutions.
Scribe can be useful for integration with third-party systems such as anything SQL based or using a number of pre-built connectors for common platforms.
