Layer7 API Management Pricing and License Cost

Ewan Sadie
API Technical Lead at Sanlam
Keep in mind the non-product licensing, e.g., if you opt not to use the embedded SQL. If you do a TCO of more than five years, then you will see a big jump in costs for some vendors. Make sure you cater for all environments. We went in with three environments but some businesses that came onboard later on required up to five. This probably depends on the complexity of your business. View full review »

CA API Management has a licensing path. If you want more features, it requires more licenses and more installation time. View full review »

I think it's competitive. It's not that expensive when you compare CA with the Oracle product. I also haven't seen the latest pricing for the virtual gateways, but what I have seen seems to be reasonably priced. View full review »

It's my manager who takes care of the pricing. But I keep on hearing that it's a little pricey, it's on the higher side. That is what he says. We have around 20 licenses so for that, the pretty is pretty high. That's what he says. View full review »

I feel the product's pricing is a good value. In terms of licensing, currently, they are available for as perpetual from CA. What is really important is that they offer the solution as a service, on a subscription or monthly basis, which will make it more attractive. That is where the market is headed. There are competitors within the industry that are doing that currently. I would encourage CA to do that. View full review »
