We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are the easy integration with the Oracle cloud, and that it's easy to use."
"This is a flexible and versatile API management solution that has the power to integrate with more than just API."
"The most interesting feature is its Mac-based function."
"It's very scalable, which is one of the best features."
"The solution is open-source."
"API management lifecycle is the most valuable."
"The main feature — the publication of the API, the management section — is great in general."
"There are a lot of tools to help the manager. WSO2 is very easy to install. It has all the principal functionalities that you think about when you want to put up the management solution. It's a very friendly tool."
"One of the great things about WSO2 API Manager is that it is so easy to adopt. And because it's an open source solution, we're able to extend the implementation any time to suit our company needs better."
"In the next release, I would like to see more security policies and for it to include an on-cloud gateway."
"The interface needs to be modernized and made more user friendly so the product continues to have a growing community of users."
"API Manager is not easy to scale because some of its components lack scalability. It's a difficult point. Especially because companies are so cloud-based these days, microservice scalability is a major thing."
"Integration is an area that needs to be improved."
"The stability is pretty good, but it could be improved."
"I would like it to be a more convenient development platform with the ability to write orchestrations and so on. Our problem with this product is that in my country, we are the only enterprise that has been using this product. We're missing a lot of knowledge from colleagues to consult with, and we also aren't able to recruit people with relevant skills. It is a big problem. The small team that is maintaining this product is the only team that can actually relate to any technical issue. The support that we're getting from the company is not great. There is also a cultural gap there because they're from Sri Lanka, and it is not easy. They're putting in a lot of effort, but they are not meeting our expectations."
"I think they could greatly improve the general UX with their solutions."
"I would like it to be a more stable solution. Maybe in the last version that is approved. For me it would be good if they had a community established version."
"From a product perspective, the first thing is that although the documentation provided by WSO2 is good, it could be much better. We're in the middle of a complex migration, moving away from VMs to Kubernetes with the latest version of WSO2 and good documentation is essential to us right now."
"We use the open-source version — the free version."
"We have not opted for the paid version of WSO2 but we have implemented the free and open source WSO2 software to a great extent and it is working as per our expectation."
"There is a subscription-based pricing structure and also the open-sourced version available."
"It's not expensive, but it could be cheaper."
