IBM API Connect Review

Offers us more flexibility with our application and potentially would allow third parties to come in and develop for us.


What is most valuable?

As far as API Connect, I think it offers us more flexibility with our application and potentially would allow third parties to come in and develop for us. It also enables us to streamline our microservices journey.

How has it helped my organization?

The main thing is that it just makes app development a lot easier.

What needs improvement?

Stability.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It was a fairly new product so there was, so it took a year or so to really stabilize. But now I'm happy with the performance.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No problems.

How are customer service and technical support?

It wasn't me that did it personally, but I would say good. We have a good relationship with IBM.

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

We were using a different solution, but we knew that this was the future, so we knew we needed to switch.

How was the initial setup?

Fairly straightforward.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yeah, I can't recall the name, but we are an IBM facility, so we just figured it made more sense for us to go with this package.


What other advice do I have?

When selecting a vendor, trust is important, as well as that they deliver. Just someone you can be comfortable with.

I rated it an 8/10 because it's not fully mature yet.
