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

Pros
"This solution is very flexible, and it's very compatible with the other Azure products.""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.""The user management is pretty seamless.""The API management and the hosting of the API platform are great.""The integration with Azure Active Directory is a good security feature for authentication and authorization. There is multifactor authentication. You can also use all of the Azure AD features integrated with API Management.""It's easy to use compared to other products. It's easy to set up.""The Azure Active Directory Synchronization is quite good.""The most valuable feature is the developer portal, which has source code examples in various programming languages to help developers learn the API."

Cons
"The documentation could be improved for the customer.""The user interface needs improvement.""This solution is only available as a cloud-based deployment and it would be very helpful to have an on-premises version.""The licensing fees should be cheaper.""Multi-tenant functionalities is missing from the system, especially when it comes to the developer code of features.""Could use clearer configuration when it comes to API policies.""Technical support could be more flexible and try to meet the client's needs a bit more effectively.""They should improve the inbuilt policies that they have and that should properly create a deployment architecture as well."

"The review process should be improved. There seem to be some gaps, at least for us, for the editing part because we would like to have a full request review mechanism. They support some comments, but it is really hard to manage those comments. We would like to use the full request. Therefore, we are now looking to integrate with repositories. It has integration with Bitbucket and GitHub, but we have some internal constraints, and we need to move some of the repositories to GitHub. Our source code is on-premise in Bitbucket, and it was a bit of a problem for us to integrate. Now we are transitioning our repositories to GitHub, and hopefully, we can enable the integration. This will probably solve the problem with the review and approval. Its customization should also be improved. There are limitations around the support for the developer portal. There should be more customization options for the website that you can use as a developer portal. Currently, it has only Swagger UI with minimal customization. You cannot actually add additional pages and documentation for explaining concepts and general things. That's why we have started to look around to see what other tools are doing. They should also allow tagging on the API. We would like to add some tagging on the API to reflect certain things. Currently, any metadata that you would like to have has to be a part of the spec. You cannot do anything else. It should also have support for Open API 3.1, which was released at the beginning of the year. It would be great to be able to switch to that.""More integration and usability with the cloud microservices would be nice"

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing fees are expensive.""It's being paid monthly.""Since this is a cloud-based solution you have to abide by those financial limits, this creates some different challenges compared to other solutions.""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."
