We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the ability to investigate APIs."
"Technical support has been helpful."
"The solution has been very stable."
"One of the more valuable features is the stability of the platform."
"The most valuable features are API development and API management."
"The stability overall has been pretty great."
"The scalability is good. It's passable."
"The documentation is great; it is always up to date and well-presented."
"It is quite a useful tool. It is quite good with the validation of the spec. It works quite well in terms of errors and conformity to the OpenAPI standard. It is better than Visual Studio Code in terms of editing."
"The scalability is endless."
"The pricing is a bit expensive."
"The API gateway and API runtime are too heavy, which means that it is not suitable for microservices."
"The initial setup is very complex."
"Rather than focusing on numbers, they should focus more on the customer support service."
"The most important thing that should be improved is that it is too heavy."
"We find that the enterprise level is lacking scalability."
"The pricing is quite expensive. It should be adjusted to make it more affordable for users."
"With respect to the live help, I have language issues because I can't understand some of the things that I hear."
"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"
"I'm unsure about licensing costs because I'm not the person who handles this. But, ballpark, it's probably somewhere around $300,000-$400,000 or something like that."
"The licensing fees are approximately $80,000 USD per year and there are costs for additional functionality, as well as premiums for connectors to systems such as Oracle and SAP."
"The pricing is very expensive, although you get a lot of power from the product."
"It has a yearly subscription, but I am not sure."
API Manager is a component of Anypoint Platform for designing, building, managing, and publishing APIs. Anypoint Platform uses Mule as its core runtime engine. You can use API Manager on a public cloud, such as CloudHub, a private cloud, or a hybrid. A hybrid deployment is an API deployed on a private server but having metadata processed in the public cloud.
SwaggerHub is an integrated API Development platform, built for teams, that brings the core capabilities of the Swagger framework to design, build, document and deploy APIs. SwaggerHub enables development teams to collaborate and coordinate the entire lifecycle of an API with the flexibility to integrate with the toolset of your choice.
