We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The ease of setting up a new solution is the most valuable feature. It's very easy to set up a new solution and to deploy it to production."
"The package as a whole is useful for our customers."
"Ease of integration into the entire Microsoft environment."
"The most valuable feature is the developer portal, which has source code examples in various programming languages to help developers learn the API."
"The solution is quite stable. We have no issues with it. there have been no crashes and we haven't experienced bugs or glitches. It's been quite reliable."
"Allows the possibility of VPN technology to connect your gateway directly with on-prem services"
"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 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."
"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."
"The developer console for external users could be improved, especially in the testing site."
"I would like to see better scalability and better performance."
"Multi-tenant functionalities is missing from the system, especially when it comes to the developer code of features."
"This solution is only available as a cloud-based deployment and it would be very helpful to have an on-premises version."
"The portal where we publish the APIs could be improved. Maybe this is because we didn't configure it. It is quite easy to bypass API management because we have a lot of information shared on the portal, where we publish our APIs. I worry there is potential for a security breach in the API publishing. There needs to be more security available on terms of the way we publish them."
"Could use clearer configuration when it comes to API policies."
"The user interface needs improvement."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Since this is a cloud-based solution you have to abide by those financial limits, this creates some different challenges compared to other solutions."
"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."
