Manager - API Management at a insurance company with 1,001-5,000 employees
It was an architecture decision to move towards a mobile-first API strategy. We realized that in order to meet the requirements of an API of a really good, strong enterprise API we needed to centralize that. That started us looking at APIM technologies. We scored a number of different vendors and brought in some to do POCs. view full review »

The only solution I use is CA APIM and it’s the best. I haven't even thought of switching into another one. view full review »

Lead Infrastructure Architect with 11-50 employees
We didn’t use a solution before this one. CA is the best in the market in terms of stability, scalability, and policy development. They are the best at achieving custom scenarios related to clients (customization) in all perspectives, besides the current API Portal 4.1, as it is not yet matured enough. There is nothing to worry about in the 4.1 portal. view full review »

OSS Enterprise Architect at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
We use Microsoft IIS in other areas to expose services against a load-balanced cluster. So we have these bulk security components within it. They've never been compromised but we thought we'd just go with an off-the-shelf security implementation that also comes with API management capabilities, as the Microsoft version doesn't really have that built-in. view full review »

Integration Platform Manager at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
We introduced the API Gateway. I wasn't here at the time, by the way, but we didn't use anything in terms of that. We bought it really for our protection and security capabilities. So the main thing is the API, the whole API management piece. We did go out to tender; we invited about six, or evaluated about six, different solutions and selected CA. view full review »

Manager, .Net And Mobile Applications Development at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
I'd used it before, so when we created our mobility team, with me as the manager, I knew that this is the device I was going to have to put in front of all my services in order to make them reusable. It was once we'd actually standardized and built everything out, then we made room for the device, so it was just no more than procuring the device, and putting it in place at that point. When I’m selecting a vendor, I want to look for somebody who cares about me as a customer. I want to find somebody who actually wants our solution to work. I think the team has been fantastic at that. I look at what other customers think about the support and, have they gotten anything good from their support teams? I look at that. I think the last thing that I would look at would be price, to be honest, because I care more about the solution. Is it going to work for us? It's a partnership. When I meet a vendor, and we're actually going to put in one of their tools, or we're going to use a tool, or an appliance or whatever, to help us, then that to me is a partnership, and we're in this solution together. That's what I really, really got from CA. view full review »

We weren’t using a solution previously, but alongside of this tool, we were using Apigee Edge and 3scale API Gateways. Each one of them is designed for a different purpose. We were looking at them as complementary products and not as replacements. view full review »

Manager, Information Technology - Integration Technology Engineering at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
I don't know if we had a previous solution before going with API Managment. We have a number of CA products. Some of them, we started with the CA product and some of them we started with other products and then switched to CA because of their high availability and high reliability. We are not looking to switch it. It’s nice and stable. view full review »

API Champion at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
We have multiple solutions in house. This is the one we choose for now for certain products. There weren't really better products and there's only certain product groups in the market, and we only pick the best-in-breeds. CA was one of them. For me, the most important quality in a vendor is technical support. I want support from end-to-end, including documentation, technology, and written materials that I can download and review myself and then reapply. view full review »

Infrastructure Middleware Manager at a health, wellness and fitness company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We didn't have a previous solution specific to this. We had some other products where there was some overlap with this product, but none of the products accomplished what this did. We had a specific need. There were multiple products that were specialized in different things, but they could do some of the stuff that this product could do. This solution is very narrowly focused on API management. view full review »

Lead Software Engineer at a health, wellness and fitness company with 501-1,000 employees
Previously, we were using OAG - Oracle Application Gateway. The CDCI was not that good with that. The continuous delivery and continuous integration are not readily available and there are a lot of bugs in the code, in the product. In comparison to that, the CA tool is less buggy. There were a few reasons for choosing this vendor. The first being the continuous delivery and continuous integration, which was one of the major things we were looking for. Next, we wanted to look at the portal and the API itself; how do you manage the APIs, giving access, access control and all those aspects. The third thing we were looking at was security. So, these are 3 different things that we were considering whilst selecting a vendor. view full review »

I was involved in the decision-making process to adopt the solution. Initially, we had a normal NetScaler load balancer. However, the challenge with that tool was once your APIs get exposed to the internet/the mobile phone, how to pass the username and password from your mobile phone to your back-ends. The mobile experience demands that you don't want users to authenticate every time they want to use the application. For example, the Facebook user experience is such that once you enter your username and password you are logged in and whenever you come next time, the token gets refreshed. A similar kind of experience is what we were looking for and that demands API management. view full review »

Head of Group Technology at a logistics company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We were not using a different solution before. We were looking in the markets for solutions which would help us give this level of scalability, based on the nature of business that we have. We never had a product like this because API management was always a discussion and we never knew how to implement it. When we saw this product and figured out that they had the features we wanted, then we took our time to perform due diligence and figured out this was the right product for us. view full review »

Sr. Manager - Technology Governance and Architecture at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We were using an in-house built solution which used Tomcat servers and were quite complex. We wanted speed which is the key for success in the current marketplace, so CA did deliver that. We wanted that speed. We were able to really get up and running fairly quickly because it is mostly configuration driven as opposed to doing things from scratch. view full review »

Principal Architect at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We work with a few other vendors, I don't want to name them but they are leading vendors in the API Management space. We picked the CA solution for a few reasons, because we have some legacy protocol that's being supported only by CA API Management and that is the reason why we picked it. Another reason why we picked it is the operational management is much simpler when compared to other vendors. view full review »

Head of Sportsbook Delivery at Gala Coral Interactive
The trigger, effectively, was that we had a partner, we'd done a commercial deal. The partner wanted to integrate, we wanted to integrate with the partner, but the partner had a legacy sort of application that they weren't able to do this integrating to five APIs. They wanted one interface, and they didn't want to on-board any of the logic, they wanted that to be done somewhere else, hence the CA API Management tool that does that for us. They make one call, it goes away, does all the connections, all the session affinity, with all the underlying APIs, and that partner can just make the calls as they want. They deployed it on desktop, on tablet, mobile's coming as well now, and we use it for other partners as well. view full review »
