Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"I have not encountered instability with the product.""I have found the most valuable features to be tracing a proxy, and managing proxy versions and revisions via the Edge UI component.""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."

More Apigee Pros »

"The feature I find most valuable is that this solution allows us to manage our security.""It is a good product for API management.""The most valuable feature is the load balancing with the circuit-breaker function."

Cons
"Apigee on premise is quite complex and it is always moving faster.""Drag and drop of features would be more beneficial, rather than manually working on the configuration and updates.""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."

More Apigee Cons »

"I would like to see some additional features like having some extensions for .NET core because we use it for our back-end language.""It is a young product and does not have the kind of brand recognition that would make it a more popular solution with our clients.""Sometimes when new features are released, they are not immediately stable."

More Tyk Cons »

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."

More Apigee Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price is low compared to other products of a similar type.""There are different versions and plans available depending on the requirements, so there is flexibility in terms of the pricing."
