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."
"Within the new version, webMethods API Gateway gives us an end-to-end lifecycle from the creation of the API up into the development, deployment, and promotion into production/live. The current end-to-end lifecycle of the API gives us enough authority and governance of the API. We know what are currently live services, what is in the testing stage of development, and what version that has been commissioned. So, the full life cycle itself gives us full authority and governance of the API."
"This solution has given us a competitive advantage because we have better automation and insight."
"The cloud version of the solution is very easy to set up."
"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."
"With performance, there is room for improvement in regards to if we would like to put another extra layer of security on it, such as SSL. This is affecting their performance quite significantly. They need to improve the process of managing the SSL and other things inside their solutions, so there will not be quite such a significant impact to the performance."
"With respect to the API gateway, the runtime component, the stability after a new release is something that can be improved."
"In terms of improvements, maybe on the API monetization side, having users able to create separate consumption plans and throttle all those consumption plans towards the run time could be better."
"I do see a lack of capabilities inside of the monetization area for them. They have a cloud infrastructure that is pay per use type of a thing. If you already use 1,000 transactions per se, then you can be charged and billed. I see room for improvement there for their side on that particular capability of the monetization."
"This is not a cheap solution but, compared to other products such as those offered by IBM, the pricing is similar."
