We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The ESB, the enterprise service bus is what we primarily use. In addition to that, the API management. These are the two tools which we have been using extensively. The enterprise platform."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to investigate APIs."
"Whenever there was an issue, the support was excellent."
"The most valuable features are API development and API management."
"One of the more valuable features is the stability of the platform."
"The documentation is great; it is always up to date and well-presented."
"The most important features are the API management and API development."
"The developer portal is easy to integrate. It is easy to use, easy to integrate, and I like the developer portal."
"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."
"Rather than focusing on numbers, they should focus more on the customer support service."
"Better documentation to help explain each of the features would be really helpful."
"The pricing is quite expensive. It should be adjusted to make it more affordable for users."
"The most important thing that should be improved is that it is too heavy."
"Not many stand-out features."
"The initial setup is very complex."
"The API gateway and API runtime are too heavy, which means that it is not suitable for microservices."
"I would like to see more automation. Operations are done manually. It should also automate in the operation."
"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."
"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."
"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."
