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.

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.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
