Good security and technical support, but the price could be made more affordable

What is our primary use case?

We are a multivendor solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients. We also use it internally. The main reason we use this solution is to centralize APIs.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features for us are security and centralization."
  • "Before gaining experience with the product, I found that it was not simple to use and things took longer to do than I had anticipated."

What other advice do I have?

Oracle can be somewhat complex at times, not with respect to the interface but the mechanisms. However, if you have the right people with the right knowledge then it won't be a problem. Many people, including engineers, don't know what API management is or what it can be. I think that if Oracle can make this solution simple to set up and simple to use, with many examples of how people can set it up and get things done, then it will be helpful for companies who don't have this type of solution. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Great API management, but there are better solutions available

What is our primary use case?

We use it along with IdentityServer, as our main API management tool for API exposure to the internet. It's not for internal usage, it's for external use. We have two main roles regarding WSO2 API Manager. There are the admins, who publish guides and user updates, etc — we employ around four people who perform this role. In terms of users, we have around five to six million users going through it on a monthly basis.

Pros and Cons

  • "The main feature — the publication of the API, the management section — is great in general."
  • "I think they could greatly improve the general UX with their solutions."

What other advice do I have?

I wouldn't actually recommend this to anyone. I think that there are paid solutions, such as Azure API Management, which will relieve you from the administrative burden. Personally, I wouldn't recommend this solution at all. On a scale from one to ten, I would give WSO2 a rating of seven. It's a good tool, but dealing with the on-premises infrastructure is a big headache.

Good performance and scalability, and the tracing feature is valuable

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and Apigee is one of the API management products that we implement for our customers. Most of our clients want to expose their APIs to their consumers and they need to have a generic infrastructure for it. At the same time, they want it to be scalable as well as highly secure.

Pros and Cons

  • "Tracing in Apigee is a very good feature."
  • "As it is now, the rotation of certificates is a manual task and is something that can be improved."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing Apigee is to use it as an API platform, and not as a full-stack integration platform. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
