Easy interface to monetize and deliver APIs with very easy integration for third-party development environments/delivery.See all Pros for Apigee >>
The ability for all of our web applications to share standard functions and documents easily is valuable.
This product is well integrated with other products. Its ability to interact with IBM Secure Gateway and other integration products is the core feature. Also, the lead time to put it into production is relatively short .See all Pros for IBM API Connect >>
Monitoring: It gives us a detailed overview of how clients are using the API and it allows us to see the consumption trends in real-time.See all Pros for Microsoft Azure API Management >>
It allowed us to publish and replace pre-essential transactions in one place, with a uniformity in terms of control and policies.See all Pros for Akana API Management >>
Conversion to RESTful and SOAP protocols and management console (can manage individually throttled settings to manage our service levels for customers).
This has provided a new stream of traffic and exposure of our catalogue beyond the normal web store offering.See all Pros for TIBCO Mashery API Management >>
Using OpenLegacy, the exposure of services is far easier and quicker. In many cases, exposure of services requires just a few clicks and takes only minutes. In very complex cases, it still only takes half a day. Without OpenLegacy, it would take us several months to create the same services.See all Pros for OpenLegacy >>
Oracle's APIP CS is a platform capable for consistently covering the complete API Lifecycle from design to retirement, supporting an API-first approach.
The Gateways are communicating with a Management Service, which lives in the Cloud, to send usage information or to fetch changes for the deployed APIs.See all Pros for Oracle API Platform Cloud Service >>
API Management refers to the practices and tools that enable an organization to govern and monitor its Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Today, the term almost always means management of RESTful APIs using the JSON language.
API Management controls how the gateway passes calls to the back-end service and then hands off the response back to the invoker site. Most large companies have built out APIs for their customers and for internal use. There is a choice to have the data on-premise or in the cloud, whichever works best for the situation.
API management tools typically allow for security policy definition and enforcement, including authentication and authorization of API consumers. They can throttle API calls and limit usage based on established SLAs and resource allocation agreements.
IT Central Station users are looking for a healthy API gateway that manages transformation engines to modify requests and responses in real time. Publishing tools report access and usage policies, and manage the API lifecycle. API Management is responsible for collecting data analytics and other metrics, and monitors load balancers and debugging, especially e-mail notifications, error logs and validation errors. Clients using APIs have access to better insights into their usage because APIs impact many products and services, and API Management is critical to agile operations.
IT Central Station users want ease of use in API Management for monitoring these security gateways against malicious attacks. Aspects most important to IT include Directory Authentication, API Security, Life Cycle Management, Deployment Management and Service Registry, discovery and a repository. There should be built in API Aggregation, Traffic Management, Mobile Optimization, HTTP Acceleration and Data Caching.
IT teams specifically look for API Management to oversee encryption, decryption, credential management, URL management and prevention against XSS and SQL Injection threats. API Management will monitor exposed functionality and monetization. API Management solutions are integral to a 24/7 need to keep everything running, and running well. Good planning and project management will help IT choose the best combination of monitoring tools for API Management.
