How has it helped my organization?

Internally, we use this product to give our employees a catalog of all the APIs that we implemented over the years. They get detailed documentation on how to use those APIs and can develop their own solutions on top.

What needs improvement?

Security could be improved.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The developer and standard pricing tiers of Azure API Management are very competitive compared to other products. If a customer wants to expose their internal APIs to the Azure API Management Portal, then they would require a VPN connection… more »

How has it helped my organization?

We were securely able to offer services to external third parties to securely consume within a relatively short amount of time.

What needs improvement?

* Versioning of API operations (which I have heard is in the pipeline) * Easy exporting of configurations from the Administrator portal.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Nothing. Day to Day costs are very minimal, tens of dollars a month or so depending on peaks of usage.

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

No previous solution used.

What other advice do I have?

Definitely check it out. The documentation is plentiful and it is pretty easy to setup and have something going within an hour or so.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No. I was evaluating Azure PAS offerings and producing proof of concept solutions just before the project kicked off.
