Enables us to configure the API with restricted access for different clients but their support is lacking
What is most valuable?One of the concepts offered with this solution is called Productization. This concept allows you to bundle the APIs together and present them to clients as products, which allows you to configure the… more »
How has it helped my organization?We want to create one API to be used by different clients. In terms of management, even though the proxying of an API is not a lot of work, it is better to create a single API that can be reused. When… more »
What needs improvement?The number one area this solution could be improved is by implementing support. Support is not a part of this solution.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We have MuleSoft, but we are only using their ESB, not API management. Apigee is the first solution we are using for API management.
What other advice do I have?For on-premises I would not suggest this solution. Generally speaking, the product is a good one, it is matured and the features are okay. If anyone wants to use this solution they should first… more »
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We evaluated three different products, including API management from Apigee, API management from CA, and MuleSoft. This evaluation was three years ago, and at that time the Apigee platform was more… more »

What is most valuable?The ease of creating policies has been the most useful of the solution's features. It's a quick ramp-up time. It's easy for our support staff to implement the policies in the API management layer.
How has it helped my organization?The solution has improved our company's time to market. When we deploy a policy for a particular API, the creation of the policy and the gateway is significantly faster than what we were doing with our Layer 7 gateways. It's easier to… more »
What needs improvement?The company needs to better support webhooks. It used to support webhooks and their policies and they have since stopped. They had some issues in the product and they abandoned the support for them. It's not come back since. Webhooks are… more »
What other advice do I have?Right now, we are still in the process of testing the solution. We're using both on-premises and cloud versions. CA has developed a sort-of enterprise service spot inside of their API management platform. It does interesting things with… more »
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We looked at a couple of other vendors. We looked at offerings by Red Hat and some others. We basically looked at the market leaders. From an enterprise point of view, our digital division had already migrated to GCP. GCP uses Apigee by… more »

What is most valuable?It is very easy to implement and the configuration of the API is very simple. It is easy to upload a Swagger file and build an API. The user interface for building APIs is very simple. Anyone with basic knowledge can build an API. Disaster… more »
What needs improvement?Apigee is demanding on the infrastructure so the setup cost is very high for an on-premises deployment.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The cost of the licensing is based on the number of API calls that are made. This is good because we don't pay for the number of nodes that we are installing. They also do not charge you for non-production transactions, which is extremely… more »
What other advice do I have?My advice for anybody who is considering Apigee is that it is has a very easy and intuitive GUI to build APIs, and I can also import Swagger files. It is built on a high availability model, so if anything goes down then another node will… more »
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We had evaluated Software AG at the same time as Apigee. The initial setup cost for an on-premises deployment of Software AG is less than that of Apigee. For example, if I require four cores to operate Apigee then it would be a two-core… more »

What is most valuable?There are a few features that are quite interesting. We can provide our API developer with an API proxy to the developer portal, which comes in handy. There are also some interesting policies, like authentication where we normally provide any code and quotas and rate limit policies for protection. The administration and monitoring features are also quite useful as you can receive alerts and… more »
What needs improvement?When compared with other products and tools in the market like MuleSoft or other API management solutions, I see some lagging in regards to integration capacity — where we don't have all of the connectors. It's not the perfect ESB, it's only for API management solutions. For example, MuleSoft will provide you with the API management solution as well as ESB, allowing you to integrate with large… more »
What other advice do I have?We would definitely recommend Apigee. You can use Apigee to create proxies (and share API proxies with consumers), monitor calls, and provide security for particular endpoints. We have a complete telephone portal under Apigee, I would recommend it. I would give Apigee a rating of seven or eight out of ten. The API moderation, administration monitoring, product architecture, infrastructure, and… more »

What is most valuable?Tracing in Apigee is a very good feature. The scalability and performance are both very good.
How has it helped my organization?We have been able to fulfill all of our use cases with Apigee.
What needs improvement?As it is now, the rotation of certificates is a manual task and is something that can be improved. It only has to be done once every two or three years, but I would state that there is still room for improvement.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We use several similar solutions including Mulesoft, SAP, and Azure. Mulesoft is the one that we use the least and try to replace it with other systems. Out of ten customers, we have two using Azure, six using Apigee, and the final two… more »
What other advice do I have?My advice for anybody who is implementing Apigee is to use it as an API platform, and not as a full-stack integration platform. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?The REST API allows for faster user engagement. The flexibility allows you to quickly run a cloud-native application architecture.
What needs improvement?The ability to work across different management solutions in a plug and play fashion would make it easier for faster uptake. Pricing is an area that can be improved, as it is a little on the higher side. It is more expensive when you… more »
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?My understanding is that there are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Apigee was our first choice for this type of product.
What other advice do I have?My advice for anybody who is considering Apigee is to first do research and an analysis of what they want to use it for, including specific use cases. It is a good tool but it is important to have well-defined requirements to avoid a high… more »

What is most valuable?Apigee makes it nice and easy for the clients and those using the product to access the product's help resources.
What needs improvement?It would help with Apigee if we could make a list of our assets. If the client knows more about all the extensions they can use to work with through the Google cloud and we have an extensions database it would be easier to let them know what is available and we could do more to recommend Apigee for… more »
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I did have some previous experience with other products in this category before Apigee, like MuleSoft. The main differences between Apigee and MuleSoft are that Apigee is more lightweight and the licensing is also lesser than the MuleSoft. Based on the use case of big clients, the ones who want more… more »
What other advice do I have?What I would recommend for clients who are considering this type of solution depends on the customer's use cases. Since we are Google partners we generally go with Apigee as the solution. But if the client insists that there has to be a lot of orchestration and other integrations need to be done… more »

What is most valuable?The most valuable features are scalability and technical support.
What needs improvement?The definition of the APIs should improve because you can't easily validate the inputs and outputs. Better functionality for validating inputs and outputs would be helpful.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?It is not suited for small companies. It's expensive. For a bank, it would not be expensive, but to implement this solution for a smaller company such as an insurance company, it would be too expensive. The pricing is complicated and not… more »
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I have used several solutions previously, such as IBM API Connect, WSO2 API Manager, and many other API solutions.
What other advice do I have?This is a very good API tool. I think that this solution is very good in some use cases but not very good for some small companies. It can be complicated for licensing and pricing. This is a product that I can recommend otherwise. I would… more »

What is Apigee?
Apigee Edge, the self-service, enables companies to secure, scale, manage, and analyze their digital business, and grow API programs to meet the increase in demand. Edge enables enterprises to design and build the APIs that securely share their services and data.
Key capabilities of the Apigee Edge API management platform include:
- Security: protect APIs, messages, and backends with configurable policies such as OAuth, API key verification, XML/JSON threat protection, access control.
- API gateway: secure and mediate the traffic between clients and backends, and between a company’s APIs and the developers, customers, partners, and employees who use the APIs.
- Developer portal: attract and engage application developers, enabling them to discover, explore, purchase (or profit from), and test APIs and register to access and use the APIs.
- API lifecycle management: manage the process of designing, developing, publishing, deploying, and versioning APIs.
