What needs improvement?

This solution is only available as a cloud-based deployment and it would be very helpful to have an on-premises version. This is driven by the fact that some of our clients have specific requirements and they do not want to be on the cloud… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

What is most valuable?

The ease of setting up a new solution is the most valuable feature. It's very easy to set up a new solution and to deploy it to production.

What needs improvement?

The developer console for external users could be improved, especially in the testing site. I would like to see the security management for the APIs to be more granular.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I previously used RabbitMQ for another project. Both solutions have different approaches. One can work on-premises. On the whole, I still prefer is Azure API Management. I believe it's an easier solution set up and run.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to someone considering it. I would rate it a nine out of ten.
