    "Any possibility on transformation between formats"

    What do you like best?

    The high number of adapters allow the user to integrate with a vast number of systems from standard interfaces as text files or structured sources as JSON to messaging systems connected with MQ or Kafka. The multi-input and multi-output paradigms allow the user to transform, so there won't be any issue that can be efficiently solved with ITX. The support is always available to clarify any product functionality, with a quick response time and always respecting the SLAs.

    What do you dislike?

    Since ITX has a long history, some functionality is inherited from previous versions. Hence, sometimes, it is common to feel stacked in an old-fashioned product due to old Windows design applications. IBM is correcting it by the development of new web-based desgin tools. Not all the adapters and integrations ara available for the las design tools so at this moement it is mandatory in some cases to use the old design tools. For the new Design Tools, it is required to have a Mongo Database with the corresponding cost to the institution to install and maintain the product. It would be better to have an embedded database or use any free database or any database with a license included on ITX (such as DB2). Online documentation is not best organized since it is difficult in some points to have all the information required. Some of the data is not on online documentation but can be found on Release Notes of specific versions, so it is necessary to deep on different sources of information.

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    Consider from the beginning the incorporation of ITX Design Server if possible since it allow better CI/CD pipeline and team organization. Before using any adapter look on the examples included on the installation folder since they are sometimes better than studying them from documentation.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    Incorporation of industry standards. It is advantageous to have preloaded Standards on ITX, avoiding consuming big time on coding and testing these standards. All messages needed are included on the Industry Packs, including examples of different use cases.
