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."
"The package as a whole is useful for our customers."
"Ease of integration into the entire Microsoft environment."
"The most valuable feature is the developer portal, which has source code examples in various programming languages to help developers learn the API."
"The solution is quite stable. We have no issues with it. there have been no crashes and we haven't experienced bugs or glitches. It's been quite reliable."
"Allows the possibility of VPN technology to connect your gateway directly with on-prem services"
"The most valuable features are the ease of use and it is a platform that has self-enablement for the customers to be able to register themselves."
"The integration with Azure Active Directory is a good security feature for authentication and authorization. There is multifactor authentication. You can also use all of the Azure AD features integrated with API Management."
"It's very well integrated with the Azure environment."
"It would be helpful to improve the customization features so that the customer can do it based on their own needs."
"I would like to see better scalability and better performance."
"Multi-tenant functionalities is missing from the system, especially when it comes to the developer code of features."
"This solution is only available as a cloud-based deployment and it would be very helpful to have an on-premises version."
"The portal where we publish the APIs could be improved. Maybe this is because we didn't configure it. It is quite easy to bypass API management because we have a lot of information shared on the portal, where we publish our APIs. I worry there is potential for a security breach in the API publishing. There needs to be more security available on terms of the way we publish them."
"Could use clearer configuration when it comes to API policies."
"The user interface needs improvement."
"There is always room for improvement. There should be more analytics abilities so you can know how much traffic there is. Log Analyzer isn't well integrated with this solution."
"In terms of improvement, it would be helpful if they could develop an on-premises option."
"It's being paid monthly."
"Based on the resources that we are leveraging, the price we are paying to use this solution is slightly higher than other competitors. In a few cases, it has its own advantage in some resources."
"Since this is a cloud-based solution you have to abide by those financial limits, this creates some different challenges compared to other solutions."
"The licensing fees are expensive."
"The price of the solution is reasonable compared to others."
