Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The tool's authentication mechanism is easy to implement. We had to define a few parameters.""Good interface, intuitive solution.""It allowed us to publish and replace pre-essential transactions in one place, with a uniformity in terms of control and policies."

"This product is a ten when it comes to API management.""The best feature of Axway Amplify API Management is its exceptional level of security, which is highly reassuring, coupled with its remarkable capacity to handle substantial volumes of data in impressively efficient turnaround times.""The administration tool for this solution is good.""There's drag and drop functionality so that you do not need to have a senior expert developer to make use of the tool. You can get more of your staff trained up to be able to use it as it's not overly technical.""The most valuable features are security enforcement and throttling.""The API portal capability is a valuable feature.""We like the portal for documentation a lot.""I don't believe the Salesforce has been fully utilized yet. It gives us quick engagement."

Cons
"Lacks an integrated billing feature.""Akana API Management needs to improve its documentation.""The product has new features that we are going to implement in the next few months, such as API management and analytic reporting."

More Akana API Management Cons →

"Areas of improvement include marketing and enhancing the data products area by using ETIs.""The product shows a lack of maturity. The setup is difficult, the tech support and community are lacking, and it is not very stable.""This solution does have some limitations regarding the deployment model.""The API Mocking tools need to be improved.""It would be great if they have an asset report. It's hard to get support for that.""Sometimes we find bugs where certain calls are not returning all the data we need.""Team management capabilities could be improved.""The areas for enhancement should be improving certain filters within the solution. Although they are generally functional, there are occasional problems that could be more precisely adjusted. Additionally, the solution performs well within its workload limitations, but it may not be suitable for scaling up or managing a larger volume of transactions through the gateway. To address this, it may be necessary to adopt a unique architecture rather than relying on traditional pre-packaged options."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "For us, the pricing and licensing policies were for an on-premise installation with a fixed cost structure, that matched our budgeting policies."
  • More Akana API Management Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The solution is expensive. When you acquire a license you have full access to the solution, unlike other competitors such as Apigee X, where there are fragmented licenses. Some licenses only allow access to certain features while others allow access to more features. Upon procuring this solution's license, you will have full access to the solution, allowing you to experiment with all of its features."
