What is most valuable?

The solution is open-source. The main feature that I like the most is that it is a containerized solution. The API solution is fully containerized. It also has a micro-gateway. You can scale the solution up and down easily. It's not a… more »

What needs improvement?

I'm using the open-source version, therefore my comments are basically related to just the open-source version. I specify this, due to the fact that, if you have a subscription, you can have access to enterprise support. I need to work… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

If you are using open-source, it's not expensive. If you choose to upgrade to get enterprise support, then you need a subscription and it has a cost. I am not using the enterprise support and I don't have a subscription. Therefore, I'm not… more »

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

Before using this solution I used Apigee. I chose this product over Apigee due to the fact that I could start with an open-source version. It was an advantage. My preference was choosing open-source. I know that Apigee has stronger… more »

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers. We don't have a business relationship with the company. I'm currently using the open-source version of the solution. We're evaluating 3.2.0. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate it at an eight. If it offered better… more »

What is most valuable?

I think it's very valuable because of the support desk in one application. It protects us well. That is very important. In terms of security, it's mostly been enough until now. I had used them in my local work. I was playing with them and… more »

How has it helped my organization?

I mostly used it when working in the banking sector. There are many bank connections going on every day, especially during the holiday season, which can be kind of tough. We need to straighten the books, which can include how much money… more »

What needs improvement?

From the last version, they have added more dashboard support, but there is still a lot they need to improve. The thing is, on the chart you can set it to forty seconds or one minute. That's fine, but if you hold any request it should be… more »

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

We used Apigee and API Connect. I found that CA is more stable than the others. When you are deploying code, you also need the previous versions. With CA I can track all the changes. It's more stable and reliable.

What other advice do I have?

I would say implement it. If you are new to APIs and things, you won't understand it, but if you have some experience it will be okay. I would rate this as eight of ten.

What is most valuable?

The features that are most valuable to us are the portal, authorization, and the extensive filters which allow us to make the policies which serve the user.

What needs improvement?

I think that the program's team management capabilities can be better as far as working in groups. I really am interested in several of the new features already announced and being offered in the release of version 7.6.2. That is the main reason why we want to upgrade. Beyond those features, I don't… more »

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

Before using Axway I used Apigee. There are a few main differences between Axway API Management Plus and Google's Apigee. Axway is a little easier to deploy and it has a lot more filters. So out of the box, it looks like there is more to it than Apigee. But I think the GUI of Apigee is a little bit… more »

What other advice do I have?

If I were a team going to deploy this solution now, I would probably deploy it using the newer containerized solutions for better flexibility. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this product as a ten. It does everything that we expect it to do and is… more »

What is most valuable?

The solution is a good general API manager. They have a few propriety features but are offering items that are standard in the industry as well. We personally prefer TIBCO because we are comfortable using it. We haven't had any issues with… more »

What needs improvement?

The pricing could be improved. It's too expensive right now. Policy management has been a bit of a concern. We've had issues with upgrading APIs, however, that could be related to configuration difficulties.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is a bit high, but it is by no means the most expensive option on the market.

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

TIBCO is just a different way of dealing with different products. There are many on the market we've dealt with and looked at. For some companies, TIBCO is better. Others may find Apigee or CA Layer 7 is better. If I were to pick, I would… more »

What other advice do I have?

We've had TIBCO installed in the middleware all over the place including in our back and front-end systems. I would say about 20 to 25 systems altogether within our organization have TIBCO on them. Whether a company should deploy the… more »

What do you think of Microsoft Azure API Management?

What is our primary use case?

We are a software firm and this is one of the solutions that we provide for our customers.

What is most valuable?

The package as a whole is useful for our customers.

What needs improvement?

The API gateway, when it is deployed, is not as robust as Apigee. I would like to see better scalability and better performance. Performance is important for us.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Azure API Management for the past two or three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability-wise it has a ways to go, although it has also come a long way since we first started using it. The issues that we have had are related to performance. Otherwise, it should be fine.

What do I think about the scalability of
