Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The ease of creating policies has been the most useful of the solution's features. It's a quick ramp-up time. It's easy for our support staff to implement the policies in the API management layer.""It's a good return on my investment.""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."

More Apigee Pros »

"The most valuable feature is the ability to have different packages based on the API keys. The same core system can have different packages based on different environments.""The reason why we selected the solution originally was because of its ability to have a gateway both on-premise and in the cloud. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us.""The solution is a good general API manager. They have a few propriety features but are offering items that are standard in the industry as well.""When we did the product evaluation, we saw that TIBCO Mashery offers end-to-end API life cycle management. It provides all API features that are required for managing the complete life cycle. It includes the developer portal and tools for API monitorization. The out-of-box security features that TIBCO Mashery provides are enterprise-grade, which gives it an edge over other API products."

Cons
"The company needs to better support webhooks. It used to support webhooks and their policies and they have since stopped. They had some issues in the product and they abandoned the support for them. It's not come back since.""The number one area this solution could be improved is by implementing support. Support is not a part of this solution.""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."

More Apigee Cons »

"The way agile life cycle is working needs improvement. I also want to see more support for open API standards. I want to see some improvement on the protocol transformation. That is quite missing now. These are the three main issues.""The security needs improvement, specifically, propagation of security to an API. Calling other APIs is something that is missing in the product and that makes us think about going to a competitor.""Policy management has been a bit of a concern.""They can fix some stability issues and probably make it more user-friendly so that not only an IT savvy person but an end-user can also easily navigate through this solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"Its price is pretty reasonable. There are some lightweight API options available in the market, but given the feature set that TIBCO provides, its price is really reasonable."
