We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Axway AMPLIFY Application Integration is very easy to use."
"The most valuable feature is that API Gateway is extremely flexible for any feature, such as connecting to Active Directory to pull the users and their authentication information. There are three ways to connect to Active Directory, and the reason for this is that the computing environments of our customers are very different. Every feature in API Gateway has got multiple methodologies for accomplishing those tasks, which is important because customers are constantly changing their security models, IT models, networks, etc. API Gateway is very flexible. It is not a one size fits all sort of situation where it is very rigid, and you can only use these pull-down menus, and that's all it ever does. It is much more open than that. It can give you fabulous reports on your users, usage, security issues, and the data sets that are going through there. You'll suddenly have visibility on the movement of data within or between your organization and other organizations. The other thing is that you're connecting API to API, which is machine to machine. The things that were done manually in an Excel spreadsheet before exchanging data through email are now done machine to machine and server to server. It speeds up the velocity of your business."
"This solution has improved our overall time to value for data ingestion."
"The drag-and-drop feature in the interface is very good."
"Talend Studio has the ability to use it to ensure data quality."
"We're sold on the customization part of the solution."
"It's a good tool. It has the ability to take apart and install whatever we need. It's very good for data, transformation, and loading."
"This is a user-friendly solution that is easy to use."
"The most valuable features are the ETL tools."
"The most interesting aspect of the solution for us is that Talend Open Studio has a good balance between the features and the cost of the data management platform."
"The most important point to improve is the capability to deploy in large enterprises."
"Because it is so flexible, you really need someone who knows Axway Gateway or has been through the training and is certified. Just because you know APIs doesn't mean you're going to walk into that API Gateway and understand what to click on. If you're going to get something done quickly, you need to find an engineer from a company who has some experience with it. It is easy to learn, but if you're doing on-the-job training, it is going to take you longer to get your project accomplished."
"Inter-version compatibility is a problem, and migration projects between versions are required."
"Having additional training materials, such as a video tutorial, would be an improvement."
"The technical support and documentation need a lot of work to come up to standard."
"It gets the job done but it's a bit slow."
"We don't get continuous replication of the data."
"Technical support and customer service need to be improved."
"The user interface could be made simpler."
"The solution should offer better integration with other products."
"API Gateway is priced on the number of transactions you run through it. API Gateway is free, and you can install as many API Gateways as you like or are necessary for your network. For example, if all of the data is inside your network or firewall, you may just need one API Gateway. If you have external customers trying to come into your organization through your firewall, you're going to need one API Gateway outside the firewall and one inside the firewall. If you have a lot of remote offices, you may want to put API Gateway in some of those offices as well. They only charge you for your usage of it. In other words, the number of transactions going through it. That's a good benefit."
"The paid version of this solution has a very high price, but even with the limitations, the Community version works fine."
"Price could be lower. It is getting too expensive when compared to some other solutions, which is actually a little bit concerning."
"There are many versions available and one is open-sourced which is free."
"The cost for one year for the ETL tools, not for the big data, is 6K per year. It is a good price."
"It does the job well for nothing — without cost. That's the advantage of this product."
