"The solution is a good general API manager. They have a few propriety features but are offering items that are standard in the industry as well.""The reason why we selected the solution originally was because of its ability to have a gateway both on-premise and in the cloud. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us.""The most valuable feature is the ability to have different packages based on the API keys. The same core system can have different packages based on different environments."

Cons
"Scripting needs improvement. It's hard for our customers.""The components that they include in the product that are, in fact, a WTX, really need to be removed from the product because they tend to fail.""The solution requires a lot of training manuals in order to get to know it better and to be able to use it effectively."

Calling other APIs is something that is missing in the product and that makes us think about going to a competitor.""The way agile life cycle is working needs improvement. I also want to see more support for open API standards. I want to see some improvement on the protocol transformation. That is quite missing now. These are the three main issues."
