Igmar RautenbachHead: B2B Solutions at Trustlink (Pty) Ltd
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The API portal capability is a valuable feature."
"This product is a ten when it comes to API management."
"The administration tool for this solution is good."
"I don't believe the Salesforce has been fully utilized yet. It gives us quick engagement."
"There's drag and drop functionality so that you do not need to have a senior expert developer to make use of the tool. You can get more of your staff trained up to be able to use it as it's not overly technical."
"We like the portal for documentation a lot."
"The most valuable features are security enforcement and throttling."
"The solution is very easy to work with."
"It's high-speed and it can be remotely administered via an API."
"The API Connect gateway service and the SQL injection feature is good."
"I like all of the features in this product and it does what it's supposed to do."
"It can look for the various security threats, productions, payload scanning, and perform routing based on the content type."
"It is easy to use, easy to install, and it's resilient for high availability."
"What I like most is the stability."
"The scalability of the solution is good."
"The product shows a lack of maturity. The setup is difficult, the tech support and community are lacking, and it is not very stable."
"Team management capabilities could be improved."
"This solution does have some limitations regarding the deployment model."
"It would be great if they have an asset report. It's hard to get support for that."
"The installation process is a bit complex and it could be a lot simpler."
"The portal still has room for improvement."
"The API Mocking tools need to be improved."
"The solution requires a lot of training manuals in order to get to know it better and to be able to use it effectively."
"The components that they include in the product that are, in fact, a WTX, really need to be removed from the product because they tend to fail."
"Scripting needs improvement. It's hard for our customers."
"Making it more user-friendly would be an improvement."
"Some pre-packaged connectors for integration with various applications, such as SaaS offerings, would be a useful addition."
"In the next release, I would like to see the product price reduced. It should be cheaper."
"The two biggest issues of this solution are the complexity and the maintenance procedures."
"The product should be more adapted to the DevOps process."
"The cost of this product varies from customer to customer and the relationship with IBM, including how many offerings from IBM are already being used."
"It's expensive when you compare it with others."
"The licensing cost is very expensive."
"As far as I know, they have a perpetual license for this product. They are paying perpetual fees rather than an annual subscription or annual pricing."
