Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

The application is used in many applications in our manufacturing sites. The business is to manage integration between real time applications, in the automation environment and manufacturing execution systems.
  • Fault tolerance.
  • Load balancing.
  • Large API support.
  • Native json support.
  • Native web API.
  • Http management site is poor.
  • License costs are not so cheap.
  • Applications are difficult to migrate.
  • Anyway are very solid.
  • in-person training
The best part of the training was to know what works better versus what is not advised to use. The exercises were very useful and the teacher was really an expert. The good part was to take the course as a workshop to analyze our own environment in order to improve it.
TIBCO Enterprise Message Service acts as a barebone service in our environment. Some applications use TIBCO Rendezvous, some EMS. In this way it was possible to evaluate the differences and I saw that EMS was more robust and open to different programming languages. In particular the integration with java was a good point.
Despite some old features, it is very robust for a 24/7 uptime needed application. Factory automation continuity is a critical part of our site. Moreover there are lot of applications that must talk to each other and so integration is a key point. With Tibco Enterprise Message Service the environment can be very flexible and robust.
