IBM API Connect Review

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

What is most valuable?

The seamless conversion between rest and soap and service catalog.

How has it helped 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.).

What needs 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.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for a few months.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Only issue is with connecting it to Exchange Server.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I did not require the customer service.

Technical Support:

I did not require technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

It was an addition and not a substitution to anything.

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward.

What was our ROI?

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.

What other advice do I have?

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

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
