Very functional with a lot of flexibility

Pros and Cons

  • "Great flexibility with its features."
  • "Could be more user friendly."

What is our primary use case?

We are customers of Apigee. 

What is most valuable?

This solution offers a lot of flexibility in its features. Other tools like IBM Data Power have limited capability when it comes to features like data control, VPN management and monitoring. 

What needs improvement?

I think the portal could offer a better user experience. It's functional and does what it's supposed to but it's not user friendly. I'd also like to see better routing features. Currently routing is limited and the setup is complicated. From a VPN management perspective, I think we would like to have more user training available, particularly for advanced users, without having to pay. There is generally a learning curve for advanced usage and configuration, and troubleshooting is a steeper curve. Whenever we have an issue, we're dependent on support. We'd like our personnel to be better trained by Apigee so we can handle issues in-house. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for six months. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is stable and, from an enterprise perspective, it can handle volume which is important for us. 

How are customer service and technical support?

We have good support from Google. They provide onsite support and everything is available to us. We are happy with the support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is quite easy. 

What other advice do I have?

I recommend this solution. Apigee offers a month free usage so you can play around and explore the product and then make a decision. We had a good opportunity to test things out before purchasing the solution. 

I rate this solution an eight out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

A cloud-based API management platform that's easy to use

Pros and Cons

  • "Apigee is very easy to use, and you can code in any language."
  • "Access restrictions can be improved."

What is our primary use case?

We have an API, which I developed using multiple languages and different applications. We have a lot of applications, and they have their individual APIs. We create a proxy for those applications in Apigee, and we expose those proxies to access those APIs.

How has it helped my organization?

Apigee didn't exactly improve our organization, but it fulfilled a requirement. There are a few tools in the marketplace, but we thought Apigee was the best for our use case.

What is most valuable?

Apigee is very easy to use, and you can code in any language, like JavaScript, Java, or any other language. That's really helpful. It's cloud-based, so there's no need for any installation.

What needs improvement?

Access restrictions can be improved. For example, you can't restrict access to some people or some groups. You have to give them total access. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using Apigee for about three months. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Apigee is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I think it depends on your license, but it's highly scalable.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. We don't need a lot of training for the developers to start working, just a few days at most. It's very easy to start with, and the development effort is also a lot less.

What other advice do I have?

For potential users of Apigee, I'd tell them there's a free version if they want to check it out and have a trial. 

On a scale from one to ten, I would give Apigee an eight.

A stable and scalable platform with good technical support

Pros and Cons

  • "The capabilities are very powerful."
  • "When there is an update on a new version or an automatic update, you have to be present and double-check that the update is reflected in the environment with no issues."

What is our primary use case?

We use Apigee to share open data for the government. It was a pilot project for one of the  government teams who wanted to start the journey of open data.

What is most valuable?

The capabilities are very powerful.

What needs improvement?

Support of integration is what is most challenging in Apigee, as well as the complexity of the components. When setting up an environment, you have many components with open-source content.

When there is an update on a new version or an automatic update, you have to be present and double-check that the update is reflected in the environment with no issues.

The implementation should be easier.

For how long have I used the solution?

We implemented Apigee six months ago.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Apigee is stable. We have approximately 1,000 users.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a scalable solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is very good.

How was the initial setup?

To construct the environment, can take two to three weeks.

The presentation is based on the business and can be done in three to four months.

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

The iicense is subscription-based.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others who are interested in using it.

It's a very good product. I would rate Apigee a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
