We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The flexibility allows you to quickly run a cloud-native application architecture."
"It nice and easy for the clients and those using the product to access the product's help resources."
"Apigee is a very lightweight solution."
"The stability of the solution is good. There aren't issues surrounding bugs or glitches. We don't find that it crashes or freezes. It's pretty reliable."
"This solution provides for API testing, functional UI testing, performance testing, and service virtualization."
"Reporting is pretty good. Its interface is also good. I'm overall pretty happy with the functionality and use of IBM Rational Test Workbench."
"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."
"The ability to work across different management solutions in a plug and play fashion would make it easier for faster uptake."
"Apigee could do more to make users aware of what is available in the add-ons."
"The solution tends to hide the limitations to keep selling the product."
"The setup and installation process could be improved with a container-based system."
"There are a number of things that they can do to simplify the tools, but the most important thing that they need to do is simplify the installation."
"The cost of the licensing is based on the number of API calls that are made."
"It is not suited for small companies. It's expensive."
"It is more expensive when you compare to open-source products or other vendors."
"We have a contract for three years. I don't know the cost."
"I would like to see the implementation of further options for billing because as it is now, the opportunities you have in terms of a package are limited."
"The iicense is subscription-based."
"The pricing is a little bit on the higher side, although it is really good."
"It doesn't really concern me. Licensing is on a yearly basis."
