Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The stability of the solution is good. There aren't issues surrounding bugs or glitches. We don't find that it crashes or freezes. It's pretty reliable.""It has all the features necessary to work in anything from a basic scenario to advanced applications.""Apigee is a very lightweight solution.""The developer portal is very useful to customers.""The capabilities are very powerful.""Great flexibility with its features.""Apigee is a pioneer in the industry and has good features and functionalities. It is a good tool for API management and it has more advancements than all other tools in the market in certain areas.""The central monitoring feature is the most valuable. It also provides security for the APIs and high availability for our use cases. Apigee is the best product in the industry in comparison to other API management solutions. It helps in fast development, which is a top point. It also supports a lot of industry standards and has excellent documentation."

"It's a very simple solution to use.""It clearly makes it easy to test APIs based on the SOAP protocol. We are a logistics company, and we have lots of tracking calls coming in. We provide APIs for tracking services, and it makes sense for us to use SoapUI to test them thoroughly.""The interface is user-friendly.""The solution offers excellent integration capabilities.""One good feature is SoapUI's URL check, which allows you to check among the applications. I'm not just talking about the ones for Android. It has all kinds of multi-world tests that are really helpful.""The out-of-the-box support for the database is a valuable feature.""The solution scales well.""Using SoapUI's automation suites to run all our test cases saved us a lot of time. Running 300 test cases takes about three to four days. When you automate all that, it takes only two to three hours."

Cons
"The user interface could be better. It could be easier to navigate and more user-friendly.""Access restrictions can be improved.""The ability to work across different management solutions in a plug and play fashion would make it easier for faster uptake.""Better functionality for validating inputs and outputs would be helpful.""The developer portal's adoption of the OpenAPI standard needs to be improved. In the latest version of the developer portal, they have adopted the OpenAPI standard. This feature, however, can be improved by supporting more characteristics of the OpenAPI standard.""What my clients don't like is that the on-premises solution is not being treated and maintained as well as the cloud solution.""In terms of the functionalities of a typical API gateway, Apigee is actually doing its job, but when it involves integration with backend applications, which some gateways have, I don't believe it has this functionality. You have to do Java or do some other low-level coding before you are able to do the integration. Apigee has a lot of components, which means that management will be a bit difficult. It probably has ten different components, and all of these components leverage open-source utilities, such as NGINX. When those open-source vendors upgrade their utility, Apigee usually lags behind because they need to do a lot of tests and any required development in their own platform. They need to do rigorous testing to make sure that nothing breaks. Because of that, it takes them a while to upgrade whatever components have been upgraded by the open-source vendor that owns the utility. We've been chasing them for a particular upgrade for well over a year and a half, and they have not done that upgrade. It is creating a security risk for us as an enterprise, but that upgrade has not been done, even though the open-source vendor, the owner of the utility, has upgraded it a long time ago.""As it is now, the rotation of certificates is a manual task and is something that can be improved."

More Apigee Cons »

"If the load and bare minimum could be defined, I would give this solution a higher rating.""SoapUI would benefit from some more customization abilities. It's a good interface, but it would be nice if they added the ability to build custom dashboards where the user can do their own bar graphs and pie charts.""Grouping of the cases is not possible in SoapUI, to my knowledge. When working with critical cases or the, we were not able to group them properly. We can definitely create a suite and add them there, but within a whole suite, we have to identify them, which was not easy.""The documentation needs to be improved because the interface is not easy for a first-time user.""Occasionally, when you are saving, the solution can hang.""There are no bugs or glitches, but a few features available only in the Pro version could be made available in the open-source version. Some of the features do not necessarily need to be only available to Pro users. The data generator would be really useful for the open-source version users.""We tried automation but it's not easy to integrate with the synching and some of the mission tools that we use for automated testing of APIs.""It is limited to scope and risk services only. It does have some support for JMS, but it is not out-of-the-box; you have to do some tweaks here and there."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is more expensive when you compare to open-source products or other vendors.""If the budget is not a concern then I will choose to go with Apigee over WSA-2, but if it is then I would prefer the latter solution.""The cost of the licensing is based on the number of API calls that are made.""The price of Apigee could be less expensive. The solution can be purchased monthly or annually.""The iicense is subscription-based.""It is not suited for small companies. It's expensive.""The cost increases as the usage increases.""We have a contract for three years. I don't know the cost."

"My understanding is that the pricing is okay, however, that's taken care of by our procurement team. It's around $5,000 for three years.""We have team members who are working in shifts, and it is not possible for us to utilize a single license on a single piece of hardware so that multiple team members can use it. We have to take out multiple licenses for each team member.""The Pro version can be expensive for some companies. There are no costs in addition to the licensing fees.""The cost is not that bad.""I think the number of users is also limited, considering how much we pay."
