Cons
"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."

More Amazon API Gateway Cons »

"The solution requires a lot of training manuals in order to get to know it better and to be able to use it effectively.""The components that they include in the product that are, in fact, a WTX, really need to be removed from the product because they tend to fail.""Scripting needs improvement. It's hard for our customers.""Making it more user-friendly would be an improvement."

Overview

Amazon API Gateway is a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, you can create an API that acts as a "front door" for applications to access data, business logic, or functionality from your back-end services, such as workloads running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), code running on AWS Lambda, or any Web application.

IBM DataPower Gateway is a single multi-channel gateway that helps provide security, control, integration and optimized access to a full range of mobile, web, application programming interface (API), service-oriented architecture (SOA), B2B and cloud workloads. It enables you to rapidly expand the scope of valuable IT assets to new channels - giving customers, employees and partners access to critical resources. It is available in the following form factors: physical, virtual, cloud, Linux and Docker.
