IBM API Connect Review

Exchange integration would be a good improvement however it has made it very simple to expose new services securely.

Valuable Features

The seamless conversion between rest and soap and service catalog.

Improvements to My Organization

I am a consultant so I can explain how this product has improved my customer's organization: it has made it very simple to expose new services securely with a specific general policy in DataPower and also keeping track of their use (amount of calls, etc.).

Room for Improvement

Integration with Exchange Server. Also if it could be easier to configure or direct the DataPower policies that would help. I'd like to see a combo box to choose which processing rule to apply.

Use of Solution

I've used it for a few months.

Deployment Issues

Only issue is with connecting it to Exchange Server.

Stability Issues

No issues with stability.

Scalability Issues

No issues with scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

I did not require the customer service.

Technical Support:

I did not require technical support.

Previous Solutions

It was an addition and not a substitution to anything.

Initial Setup

It was straightforward.


Seems good so far, as it saves a lot of time. It used to take a long time to expose services, whereas now it's just a few clicks.

Other Advice

It's pretty simple, there's no need for any special advice actually.
