We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are the gateway and security features."
"This solution gives you a unified way to have your API accessed."
"In terms of most valuable features, it would say that it is really easy to start working with it."
"Its security feature is the most valuable because it is mainly a security solution. It has easy authentication and authorization, and its integration is also useful."
"It's easy to integrate and provide support for existing AWS services if I use the AWS API gateway."
"It would be helpful to improve the customization features so that the customer can do it based on their own needs."
"The only real problem is that you have to know a lot about what is outside of the API gateway in order to make the best use of it."
"It would be useful to have a more complete development environment for the developer, with different integrative capabilities to manage all the life cycles for the API. I think the full version formula for that is really useful. They should improve the development environment for easier integration."
"The user interface, in general, can be better. The user interface for the entire Amazon cloud can be more friendly. There are some scenarios that are not really easy to manage and configure through the user interface."
"I am not completely satisfied with Technical Support."
