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

Within 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.
  • Often when struggling with complex integrations, the troubleshooting & debugging features were insufficient and caused project development to grow way overdue.
Scribe is better suited for high volume data integration, migration, or replication, and provides better connectivity to Source/Target the most other integration products. Lead development time is much less with Scribe than other products if the integration project does not reach a certain level of complexity. Monitoring of Scribe is basic out of the box, which is sufficient for low complexity projects, but lacks advanced configurability for more complex projects.
  • Online training
  • Self-taught
Online training was good as a start up to get familiar with the Scribe platform.
The Scribe manual was more then sufficient to assist with integration process development. We learned a lot with a self-taught trial and error approach. Wherever we were completely stuck, the Scribe support team was quick to provide assistance.
We recommend Scribe for business data integration, mainly, but not limited, between Dynamics CRM/365 and NAV. Scribe is a great product for fast integration or migration of data between systems. We do not recommend Scribe for message orchestration between platforms. Or when there is no apparent connector available with the Scribe Connectivity Library. Project complexity is also a determining factor when choosing integration middleware.
