CA API Management Review
We can create multiple orgs and set up policies and management for them

Primary Use Case

API gateway.

Improvements to My Organization

We can create multiple orgs and set up policies and management. We can also integrate with an APM solution. We have 1000-plus APIs to be built, policies set up, security handling, and API status in one portal. These are the high-level details. The developers in my team would be able to provide further detail.

Valuable Features

CA API Developer Portal and API Security policy.

Room for Improvement

We did an assessment and are continuing with implementation. I would not say it's 100 percent perfect but, currently, all the features we anticipated using are working. The only issue we have is that we have to buy an APM license separately for end-to-end monitoring. That is something we are looking into.

Use of Solution

Less than one year.

Stability Issues

We have not experienced any issues with stability.

Scalability Issues

We have not experienced any issues with scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Technical support is very good and responsive. We have a dedicated support person. Initially, we leveraged CA Professional Services.

Previous Solutions

TIBCO Mashery which was good any for API gateway, but needs more monitoring and easier methods for setting up policies.

Initial Setup

Initial setup was straightforward. We were able to set up in five weeks, including policies.

Pricing, License Cost and Setup

We need to know the ROI three years down the line. In terms of minimizing cost and licensing issues, I would suggest that you not buy piecemeal.

Other Solutions Considered

TIBCO Mashery, Mulesoft.

Other Advice

I would suggest you do a PoC with CA, for feasibility.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Partner.
