If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Microsoft Azure API Management, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
You can't use this on-premise. If you want to run on-premise you would have to get a different product. Other than that, it's easy to use and start up. There is a lot of support available from the community online. You can do a domain name yourself with Microsoft, as opposed to other products where you need to contact support in order to set up a domain. I would rate it an eight out of ten. I can't give a ten out of ten because I'm not experienced enough with it. So far so good, though.
I would recommend doing a combination of AWS API Gateway and Azure API Management. You can authenticate APIs in Azure Active Directory and from there you expose all of your serverless components and use them as a backend with Azure. But it depends on what your use case is. It can be used as a combination or as a standalone. I would rate it an eight out of ten. To make it a ten, there should be better analytics features so we can know how our product is performing.

API and microservices based architectures is the modern architecture to enable organizations for digital growth. With that said Microsoft Azure is definitely is in the top quadrant in this space and are investing to grow this service portfolio by leaps and bounds every day. Based on our customer ecosystem and the predominant technology stack in use, the decision with Microsoft platform aligns well with their transformation roadmap. There is going to be some level of Microsoft cloud solutions in play. Each customer has to conduct an assessment on the need for a platform based on the technical debt they are carrying along with people and process. They need to take a look at the existing ecosystem, software technology stack, current ERP, and the applications that need to be integrated into API based platforms. I would suggest Azure API Manager should be in your selection process. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Approach API Management in the two areas "tooling" and "governance". Tooling required end-to-end thinking from a developer, consumer and infrastructure perspective. For each multiple examples can be shared. For governance start with the obvious fitting to your organization. Do not follow all recommendations from the start, hence expect an iterative approach. I would recommend this product and would rate it an eight out of 10.
