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 most valuable features for us are security and centralization."
"The security, the authentication, and the publishing qualities are great."
"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."
"Before gaining experience with the product, I found that it was not simple to use and things took longer to do than I had anticipated."
"From an administration and developer point of view, the user interface and user experience are not great."
"This is a pay-per-use service, where you only pay for what you use."
"Oracle is not a cheap solution and it is not affordable for all of our clients in Portugal."
