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.

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.
