Microsoft Azure API Management Valuable Features

Srinivas Kode
Vice President - Competency and Channels at Techwave.
The most valuable features are the ease of use and the self-enablement through subscriptions for our consumers. Consumers can get into the API gateway library and register to an API from the catalog directly. Once the API is developed and added to the library with the registration documentation, it becomes pretty easy for consumers to access and understand the benefits and use of the API. The library acts as the central repository of all our APIs and use and access is pretty intuitive. It's very easy to learn for a person not familiar with API. View full review »

It's not the best product on the market which makes it difficult to pick a particular point that we like the best. It could be the integration in the Azure portal. In the Azure cloud it's directly connected with Azure ID, so if you stay in the Azure ecosystem, this user concept is an advantage. The solution also allows you the possibility to use VPN technology and things like that to connect your gateway directly with on-prem services and that's a valuable feature. And compared to other solutions the price is outstanding. View full review »

The solution has pretty stable capabilities. Their construction tool allows users to easily publish information about the API. It's basically just one click. You can configure the subscription management onsite and link everything. The developer portal that exposed the API documentation is great. You can just test the APIs in a very easy way. The web portal is useful. You can build a pretty comprehensive portal where users can sign in and you can basically leave the API there. The API management provided offers good integration with different management systems, like OpenID, for example. The user management is pretty seamless. View full review »
