We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
I have found the most valuable features to be tracing a proxy, and managing proxy versions and revisions via the Edge UI component.I have not encountered instability with the product.We use it to build API proxies for securing targeted back-ends with an emphasis on Continuous Integration/Continuous Development (CI/CD).It accelerates development and deployment processes.Highly scalable from any initial topology to horizontal extensionEasy interface to monetize and deliver APIs with very easy integration for third-party development environments/delivery.It has a very efficient logging system which is easy to maintain.Apigee Analytics dashboard is useful to monitor transactions, error percentage, transaction latency, etc.

We are now performing automated testing in 15 minutes, which were previously taking a long time when doing it manually.I personally like the 'Object Spy' feature of this tool. It makes it easy to find an element on the web page.The best feature is the split up between test cases and the test object. This allows us to easily change an error.It provides us daily feedback on the status (failing/working) of the core features of our websites.Video capture on failure is a must have. A picture is worth a thousand words. A video is worth a thousand pictures (literally).

Cons
Drag and drop of features would be more beneficial, rather than manually working on the configuration and updates.Apigee on premise is quite complex and it is always moving faster.I would like them to add features, such as caching and mediation policies.It needs predictive analysis of consumption.Technical support model for OPDK should be more exposed and mature in terms of providing support during installation, run, and debug of Apigee in production on OPDK mode.Maintaining and deploying revisions need to be more defined.Proxy versioning seems a bit confusing/buried in the publishing experience, especially for the URI-based versioning approach.Development IDE, especially for Architect Review.

It should start working on Silverlight automation.Support options need improvement. It is sometimes hard to find a solution to any given problem, thus you are forced to use another solution.Object Spy is brittle. When I try to capture objects, I have to proceed multiple times before it works.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing options need to be chosen on a case-by-case basis.Since it was acquired by Google, we can get a license based on our requirements and the cost level will depend on cloud access and support.Based on your usage of the APIs you can take a decision to go with either an on-cloud or OPDK version. Get in touch with the sales representatives of Apigee.As most of the customers say, the tool is a bit expensive.
