"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.""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 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.""When we did the product evaluation, we saw that TIBCO Mashery offers end-to-end API life cycle management. It provides all API features that are required for managing the complete life cycle. It includes the developer portal and tools for API monitorization. The out-of-box security features that TIBCO Mashery provides are enterprise-grade, which gives it an edge over other API products."

Cons
"The solution requires a lot of training manuals in order to get to know it better and to be able to use it effectively.""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.""Scripting needs improvement. It's hard for our customers.""Making it more user-friendly would be an improvement.""Some pre-packaged connectors for integration with various applications, such as SaaS offerings, would be a useful addition.""In the next release, I would like to see the product price reduced. It should be cheaper.""The two biggest issues of this solution are the complexity and the maintenance procedures.""The product should be more adapted to the DevOps process."

"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.""The security needs improvement, specifically, propagation of security to an API. Calling other APIs is something that is missing in the product and that makes us think about going to a competitor.""Policy management has been a bit of a concern.""They can fix some stability issues and probably make it more user-friendly so that not only an IT savvy person but an end-user can also easily navigate through this solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost of this product varies from customer to customer and the relationship with IBM, including how many offerings from IBM are already being used.""It's expensive when you compare it with others.""The licensing cost is very expensive.""As far as I know, they have a perpetual license for this product. They are paying perpetual fees rather than an annual subscription or annual pricing."

"Its price is pretty reasonable. There are some lightweight API options available in the market, but given the feature set that TIBCO provides, its price is really reasonable."
