Yes, we short listed CA, IBM, and Apigee as our final three. We also looked at other products, including the big open source products in the market. View full review »

We were thinking about the Apache system at that time, as well as the Oracle server and architecture. I used CA in my previous organization so I'm committed to it. To me, it met our requirements at that time, which helped us choose it for this organization. At that time, Oracle didn't actually have a gateway. Although they have now acquired a gateway, I think CA API Gateway is more mature. It's been there for a long time, even before CA purchased it, so in this space they are the best. We also did the research and looked at resources like the Gartner Report, and CA API Gateway seems to rank top on the list. View full review »

We found that API Connect had superior features. The security protocols in CA's product, for financial services, weren't as good as those in API Connect. View full review »

This product existed here before I started with this team so it has been here for last six or seven years. I've only been here for two and a half years. I'm not sure what kind of evaluation took place, what the criteria were for the evaluation. But, I'm pretty sure that they would have evaluated two or three products before choosing CA API Gateway. Our company itself already has two gateways. I think the main criteria here were in terms of software security, mostly securing the APIs in terms of SQL insertion attacks or XML structure attacks. They were looking more at securing the APIs and CA was probably the best at it. View full review »

Lead Architect at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
For an API management solution, we chose the Google Apigee Edge platform. We went a different direction because CA was somewhat limited on some of the lifecycle management things that we were looking for. We use Apigee for modernizing legacy systems and for monetizing APIs, among other things. We were one of the earlier adopters of the gateway technologies. I don't remember what we compared CA to back then. Lately, it has been between Apigee and MuleSoft and CA. We did that comparison. We evaluate every five years. We see if we need to stay where we are or go in a different direction. Technology changes quite quickly. View full review »

We did not have a previous solution, but we did evaluate Mulesoft as an alternative and, possibly, Informatica. We ultimately decided that our relationship with CA, and the type integration with some of the other applications that we had deployed in the enterprise, made the API Gateway a much better option for us.
