Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"API Connect is a very good platform for the development of APIs.""It is quite stable. We've not had any problem. It has made for a good buy because we are finding that other companies that have similar set ups go down maybe once a month.""Our version supports containerized integration. I can write APIs, which can be moved into a testing environment without needing a forklift. It can check if APIs are compliant before moving them into production.""It allows enterprises to expose some of their tech to outside stakeholders.""The technical support is good. Whenever we need anything, we have our IT team work with IBM to change whatever requirement is needed.""The gateway is the most valuable aspect of this solution.""The centralized management: this provides a management module that can deploy and apply security policies to all APIs, including all the gateways that are deployed on-premises and on any cloud because the gateway component can run at a VMware or in a Kubernetes cluster.""The capabilities are very good."

"The most valuable features are the easy integration with the Oracle cloud, and that it's easy to use."

Cons
"They seem to have left out a feature for microservices and also a certification module for OIDC.""I would like to see support for non-Java based services. We struggle a bit to be able to deploy and connect our .NET services because of things like data types. We had to map a couple of things. For one solution provider, we had to move them to .NET Core before we could use it properly. I would like to see more agnostic tool service platforms rather than moving it more towards Java or open source.""There are issues with upgrading in the cloud version. The cloud version is extremely buggy. We prefer to use the on-premise version.""I would like to see automation of the installation. If there could be a single-click function where you could automate everything, that would be helpful.""Extracting the data could be improved.""In terms of what needs improvement, some of the product documentation could be better.""The integration of an API gateway that implements the sidecar pattern, which can be deployed in cloud applications, and expose the microservices directly in each pod, this can be more decentralized components.""It would be helpful to have access monitoring."

"In the next release, I would like to see more security policies and for it to include an on-cloud gateway."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"API Connect is quite pricey.""I haven't seen anyone go from on-premise to the cloud. In fact, I am seeing people go from the cloud to on-premise because the costs can quickly grow on the cloud.""It would be a good idea to bring down the pricing by at least 20 to 30 percent.""The pricing is too expensive with IBM. Sometimes, we prefer to go with an open source or something more lightweight.""It is expensive when compared to other products in this class. There were no extra fees for add-ons or technical support.""It's an expensive product.""IBM API Connect could be cheaper.""It is quite an expensive product."

Top Answer: The interface is very nice. It makes the solution easy to use and navigate.
Top Answer: We have an SLA we can draw from. I need to keep within certain numbers, however, I don't have a problem doing so. I can't speak to exact costs.
Top Answer: The documentation needs to be a bit better. It's very sequential, however, I don't understand what options to choose for certain tasks. I need to read all of the documentation to find what I need… more »
Top Answer: The platform-agnostic characteristics. I can deploy the same API spec to multiple clouds and/or on-prem.  The model for defining the rules is very declarative and the platform can be extended.
