Quotes From Members Comparing CA API Management vs Microsoft Azure API Management

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
The product documentation helps the client and/or user to evolve quickly while using the tool.The Portal API helps us with deployments. It also helps to have a catalog of everything. The replication is also a critical feature for us. It helps to have a more robust architecture and makes our systems are highly available.Security is the most important parameter of the solution, for me, because whenever you are exposing your APIs to third-parties, it is critical that the data remains anonymous and that data is retained within the system, that it is not leaked. CA API Management provides good security features.One of the features that the tool provides is the ability to simply onboard new APIs to an existing security platform. We build all the policies for security upfront, and then we can add those policies pretty simply and straightforwardly to any new API that gets developed in the enterprise.The most valuable feature is the security with its out-of-the-box policies.Key features include: lightweight mediation, transformation from JSON to XML and XML to JSON, API portal and API key management, the Developer Portal, and Circuit Breaker is a cool feature, too.We can create multiple orgs and set up policies and management. We can also integrate with an APM solutionIt allows us to keep clear traceability of the changes made in each of our APIs.

Cons
As the number of instances increases, its complexity of installation increases if you do not use the OVA.The portal is not the most intuitive and the way things are displayed makes it difficult to find the information we need.The CA API Management solution has good security features, but when it comes to being used in areas like enterprise integration, where it is being used as middleware for all the IT environments, that particular feature is quite limited. It doesn't support as many protocols as an industry standard, competing product should.What is really important is that they offer the solution as a service, on a subscription or monthly basis, which will make it more attractive. That is where the market is headed. There are competitors within the industry that are doing that currently. I would encourage CA to do that.One of the features that the tool provides is the ability to simply onboard new APIs to an existing security platform. We build all the policies for security upfront, and then we can add those policies pretty simply and straightforwardly to any new API that gets developed in the enterprise.The cloud-native architecture of the product needs improvement.One area where it certainly needs to improve is the way it allocates requests, in terms of rate limiting. Also, there is no native Kafka connectivity.we cannot add gateways on the fly because there are a lot of moving parts; endpoint connectivity is one of them. If we add more nodes then the rate-limiting feature is affected. This kind of gateway always has the scalability issue. But, I think CA is coming up with its Microgateway, which is in Beta. If they stabilize their Microgateway platform, we could do very well in terms of scalability.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It's my manager who takes care of the pricing. But I keep on hearing that it's a little pricey, it's on the higher side. That is what he says.Do not buy piecemeal.I feel that it is costly for medium-sized companies.Be aware of additional licenses for your warm standby. Ensure you get plenty of non-production licenses.It depends on your use case of course, how much you want to go with that, because it can get pricey and depends on the size of your company.Purchase 4.0 now and wait until they flush out the 4.1 problems.If the CA pricing for API management would be a little lower, they would be able to cover a broader market.CA has great pricing for gateways, so negotiate with your sales team.
