For TIBCO customers (or those companies looking at TIBCO as an overall solution provider) that want to establish new business models and create added business value for their company, TIBCO API Exchange offers a reasonable alternative, offering many major requirements for an open API architecture out-of-the-box.  Certainly, the combination of TIBCO API Exchange with TIBCO Business Works 6 offers a strong solution for building services and exposing APIs.

According to Forrester, “TIBCO API Exchange has a rich UI for configuring REST and SOAP APIs, and is accompanied by strong analytics. Users wish the portal showed more features and maturity and want greater integration with other Tibco products. But it’s also one of the lower cost products.”  Software vendors tend to love these types of reviews that overall are positive and serve up ‘deficiencies’ that are either already on or easily added to their solution road map.
