We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The initial setup is pretty easy. Deployment only takes five minutes."
"The technical support is very strong. We've had issues with the solution and configuration and we got very good support."
"This solution is useful for making new APIs."
"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."
"The API portal capability is a valuable feature."
"This product is a ten when it comes to API management."
"The administration tool for this solution is good."
"I don't believe the Salesforce has been fully utilized yet. It gives us quick engagement."
"There's drag and drop functionality so that you do not need to have a senior expert developer to make use of the tool. You can get more of your staff trained up to be able to use it as it's not overly technical."
"We like the portal for documentation a lot."
"The most valuable features are security enforcement and throttling."
"Like most Amazon services, and this one's the same, you're expected to effectively do your own support, and any other support is by emails, so it's quite limited."
"It's hard to configure. There's a lot of options but it's very hard, it's very confusing."
"There should be more videos and documentation about the new features that are released every month."
"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."
"The product shows a lack of maturity. The setup is difficult, the tech support and community are lacking, and it is not very stable."
"Team management capabilities could be improved."
"This solution does have some limitations regarding the deployment model."
"It would be great if they have an asset report. It's hard to get support for that."
"The installation process is a bit complex and it could be a lot simpler."
"The portal still has room for improvement."
"The API Mocking tools need to be improved."
"This is a pay-per-use service, where you only pay for what you use."
