Stable, with good technical support, but the on-premises version can be difficult to set up

What is our primary use case?

The API Gateway and the Portal go together. It's not one or the other. Essentially they're just leveraged for overall enterprise API management facilities, being able to go on the API development life cycle, being able to go on the API run time, API monetization, things like that. Usually, most organizations, most of our customers use APIs to supplement other architectures, typically microservices, based application architecture, and so on.

Pros and Cons

  • "We have found the pricing of the solution to be fair."
  • "The on-premises setup can be difficult."

What other advice do I have?

We are partners with Software AG. We've been a partner for more than 20 years now. I'm an IT consultant. We are a consulting company, most of my teams are certified in Software AG technology, and we've worked for a lot of customers leveraging that technology. We typically deal with the most up-to-date versions of the solution, although occasionally, one or two might be a version behind.

Good for connecting systems and retrieving data, but doesn't have a predefined service for our use case and is expensive

What is our primary use case?

We use it for our ERP systems. It is a middleware tool that we use to connect two systems and the outside partners.

Pros and Cons

  • "It is good for communicating between the systems and for publishing and subscribing. We can easily retrieve data. It is good in terms of troubleshooting and other things."
  • "Some of the things that we use cannot be done in this solution. For these things, we have to either use a Java service or a util service. There is no predefined or existing service that we can use. So, we have to work on the util service and write on top of it. Its price can also be better. It is pretty costly because they charge us for each transmission."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate webMethods API Portal a seven out of ten.
