SAP PI 7.1 or 7.3 vs webMethods,Oracle Fusion,Biz talk, Tibco,IBM websphere

I hope lot of similar threads raised on this topic.

But I don't find a single thread discussing pros and cons of SAP PI over other integration market leaders.

Most of us know that SAP PI is sharing 2nd place with IBM websphere.

Many market leaders like eBay, paypal etc are using PI for their integration.

SAP projecting PI as strategic tool for integration. And when we look the topics on PI 7.3 in Sapteched, it is simply super and gains very good confidence over PI 7.3.

But again and again we were asked with the same questions from client, that why we need to choose SAP PI??

I have seen some big clients of SAP ERP are still using other integration tool instead of SAP PI. why they make this decision?? of course there could be tons of reason's. But as PI Consultant I want to convince or showcase PI advantages by comparing other tools, not with just highlighting PI market jargons or standard features instead I want to compare each and every single key advantages with other tools in specific.

Note: please don't highlight points like, one common integration, easy integration with SAP, security, synchronous & asynchronous etc etc etcu2026u2026 these points are very common to integration tools and discussed in lot of forums. So, please don't put forward the points..

I am expecting points like

E.g. : webMethods has Integration Broker, which can be used to publish and subscribe across systems/serversu2026u2026.but SAP PI don't have this feature. What is the reason you think/know that SAP PI didn't include this feature and what are the alternatives we have in SAP PI to accommodate this feature. There should be reason for not including this feature in SAP PI what is that ???.

Your view pls.....
