Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

The markets were pretty familiar with the solutions.""Good at intercepting traffic and modeling APIs around that."

Cons
"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 OS upgrades are not as frequent as they should be and they are bulky.""There should be an easier way to integrate with other solutions, even though it's the same API solution layer. Comparability will be a good improvement.""They could focus more on pricing."
