CA API Management Review
It allows you to much more rapidly expose enterprise services to front-end applications, but the user experience for developers to discover and develop APIs needs work.


Valuable Features

I'd say the API gateway that routes traffic in REST-to-SOAP conversions is a feature we find most valuable. SOAP is a type of web service, and REST is another.

Improvements to My Organization

It allows you to much more rapidly expose enterprise services to front-end applications, such as mobile and web.

Room for Improvement

The products developer portals can be better. It needs a better look and feel.

Also, the user experience for developers to discover and develop APIs needs work.

Use of Solution

We've been using it for two years.

Stability Issues

It's very good.

Scalability Issues

We've just started so there's not a lot of traffic yet.

Customer Service and Technical Support

They've been responsive, but they're pricey.

Previous Solutions

This is the first API gateway product we’ve used, and we looked for a vendor who has a reputation for establishing long-term partnerships.

Initial Setup

Initial setup was pretty straightforward.

Other Solutions Considered

We also looked at Axway, IBM, and Mashery. We went through a long evaluation and CA's number one strength was the built-in security management features.

Other Advice

As part of your evaluation, make sure that the companies can set up a proof of concept to check real situations.
