More Akana API Management Pros »

"I have not encountered instability with the product.""I have found the most valuable features to be tracing a proxy, and managing proxy versions and revisions via the Edge UI component.""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.""It's a good return on my investment.""Tracing in Apigee is a very good feature.""There are just a lot of security features in general.""Anyone with basic knowledge can build an API.""The most valuable features are scalability and technical support."

Cons
"Lacks an integrated billing feature."

More Akana API Management Cons »

"Apigee on premise is quite complex and it is always moving faster.""Drag and drop of features would be more beneficial, rather than manually working on the configuration and updates.""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.""The number one area this solution could be improved is by implementing support. Support is not a part of this solution.""As it is now, the rotation of certificates is a manual task and is something that can be improved.""I see some lagging in regards to integration capacity""Apigee is demanding on the infrastructure so the setup cost is very high for an on-premises deployment.""Better functionality for validating inputs and outputs would be helpful."
