We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Ease of integration into the entire Microsoft environment."
"The most valuable features are the ease of use and it is a platform that has self-enablement for the customers to be able to register themselves."
"This solution is very flexible, and it's very compatible with the other Azure products."
"It's easy to use compared to other products. It's easy to set up."
"I have found this solution to be easy to configure, simple to use, and flexible."
"Initial setup was quite easy."
"We're pretty much using all of the monetizations features out of the API manager so we can put up a portal and have a dev portal and then a prod portal and do rate limiting."
"Allows the possibility of VPN technology to connect your gateway directly with on-prem services"
"The most valuable features are the easy integration with the Oracle cloud, and that it's easy to use."
"The developer portal can be improved."
"Other products have more customization options."
"There is always room for improvement. There should be more analytics abilities so you can know how much traffic there is. Log Analyzer isn't well integrated with this solution."
"If I compare this solution to others I have used in other phases of my life, having APIM being an Azure resource, it is easy to configure and deploy. However, this conversely reduced the flexibility. The difficulty is how do we configure it in a manner that a larger enterprise would probably want it to be. This creates a bit more complexity, working around the constraints of the resource itself. If comparing it to other solutions, it is more of a legacy design with an older approach. The various level components are still around resembling an on-premise type of design similar to other solutions, such as Apigee or Mulesoft. They are still predominantly carrying some legacy design. Which might be suited for organizations where they have a more complex network layout. APIM is easy to deploy, but on the other side of that, it is constrained to how Azure has designed it to be."
"They're trying to implement versioning and trying to be able to manage different versions of your API all at the same time, but they're not doing that just quite right yet."
"In the API you need to delete the suffix. It is annoying that you need to have a suffix. We can add a suffix at the API level, not at the operation level, and that could be improved on."
"I would like to see better scalability and better performance."
"Sometimes when immediate support is required, it isn't available."
"In the next release, I would like to see more security policies and for it to include an on-cloud gateway."
"Since this is a cloud-based solution you have to abide by those financial limits, this creates some different challenges compared to other solutions."
"It's being paid monthly."
"Based on the resources that we are leveraging, the price we are paying to use this solution is slightly higher than other competitors. In a few cases, it has its own advantage in some resources."
"The price of the solution is reasonable compared to others."
"The licensing fees are expensive."
