"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"

"Not many stand-out features."
"The initial setup is very complex."
"The API gateway and API runtime are too heavy, which means that it is not suitable for microservices."
"I would like to see more automation. Operations are done manually. It should also automate in the operation."

"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."
"I'm unsure about licensing costs because I'm not the person who handles this. But, ballpark, it's probably somewhere around $300,000-$400,000 or something like that."
"The licensing fees are approximately $80,000 USD per year and there are costs for additional functionality, as well as premiums for connectors to systems such as Oracle and SAP."
"The pricing is very expensive, although you get a lot of power from the product."
