Long Time Iguana User

Iguana helped us to overcome a variety of business challenges and to resolve some data aggregation issues without a lot of extra staffing. The integrations typically were brought up in a timely manner, and I cannot stress enough how easy the product is to support/manage.

Pros

Iguana has served me well in multiple positions as an integration engine. I have used it as part of a product I supported in a previous position, and it ran without issues for my entire tenure (we used Iguana for ADT/orders interfaces). With another client, we used Iguana to manage multiple ADT interfaces, to create custom CCDAs, and to aggregate/manipulate data from flat file sources. The development and administrative tools are excellent, and I couldn't recommend them enough.

Cons

I think for small-midsize clients, if they do not have this already, a cloud hosted solution would be ideal.

Iguana Review

Iguana has allowed us to implement interfaces much faster then we could previously. Interfaceware is forward thinking, making positive changes often in route to an better and easier to use engine.

Pros

The best feature for our team is the development and debugging in lua which can be done while you code, allowing for fast development and debugging.

Cons

The use of Chameleon for creating and editing VMD's.

Reasons for choosing Iguana

We liked Iguana's ease of use and doing most everything in one GUI. The development language, LUA, is current and is extremely fast and efficient.

Reasons for switching to Iguana

eGate was purchased by Sun, then Oracle and stopped updating the product.

We sincerely appreciate your thoughtful and honest feedback, Greg. Emily Debowski, Sales Coordinator

Very Versatile Integration Engine

Pros

I find Iguana very versatile, allowing you to adapt it to any business need and/or solution. The availability of various Inputs and Outputs gives a limitless possibility for implementation of various solutions between third parties/local systems and databases. Scripting UI is also very good, it's quite impressive that it allows me to preview output/results on the fly as code logic is written (even including preview of Database queries). Deployment is also very easy, it takes minutes to copy one instance to another with very little changes required. Debugging and Logging is my favorite feature in Iguana as it logs every stage of the input to the very end of output, this makes it very easy to debug issues.

Cons

Some extra logging/statistic/analytics features like - being able to utilize existing logs to review certain patterns/graphs of (for example - traffic per day/week, most common input/message type) would be useful.

Iguana helped us to created an integration solution tailored to our business.

It has been a great learning experience. We have implemented Over 200 channels, and they are easy to maintain and troubleshoot. We are exploring new uses for Iguana in our business, and hope to expand to other departments.

Pros

Flexible. Scripting allows for fine control over every detail Example channels allow for quick creation with minor tweaks, and also as a learning tool Browser based, so can be accessed anywhere without an install. Easy to upgrade, with very little downtime. Support is AMAZING!

Cons

It is not a drag-n-drop application, so there can be a learning curve for someone not familiar with scripting. Analytics could be better (and are being discussed for upcoming release).

Reasons for choosing Iguana

Flexibility and Support

Reasons for switching to Iguana

Mirth was not able to keep up with the load. Support was lacking.
