"It is very helpful, with our API-based applications."
"It's flexible. It was valuable."
"In terms of most valuable features, it would say that it is really easy to start working with it."
"Its security feature is the most valuable because it is mainly a security solution. It has easy authentication and authorization, and its integration is also useful."
"It's easy to integrate and provide support for existing AWS services if I use the AWS API gateway."
"Amazon stack is easy to use in combination with other Amazon services, so it was a logical continuity."
"It is scalable."
"The analytics feature is quite good."
"The developer portal is very useful to customers."
"We have been using Apigee mostly for proxy FGIs. We also use its security features as well as traffic control features."
"Apigee has better scalability than WSA."
"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."
"The flexibility allows you to quickly run a cloud-native application architecture."
"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 would be useful to have a more complete development environment for the developer, with different integrative capabilities to manage all the life cycles for the API. I think the full version formula for that is really useful. They should improve the development environment for easier integration."
"The user interface, in general, can be better. The user interface for the entire Amazon cloud can be more friendly. There are some scenarios that are not really easy to manage and configure through the user interface."
"Monitoring could be improved."
"I am not completely satisfied with Technical Support."
"The integration could be improved."
"The user interface could be improved, as well as customer support and having a local customer representative in a country."
"The ability to work across different management solutions in a plug and play fashion would make it easier for faster uptake."
"It would be good if the Apigee management allowed us to be able to consolidate many operations into single one for the gateway functionality."
"Could be more user friendly."
"The Apigee cloud admin UI could be more user-friendly by adding a few more features."
"As it is now, the rotation of certificates is a manual task and is something that can be improved."
"Unlike WSA, Apigee does not have a partnership model, something which makes it a bit easier for companies such as ours to go with the former solution."
"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."
"The caching capabilities are somewhat limited. This is more on the developer-oriented capabilities."
Amazon API Gateway is a fully managed service that makes it easy for developers to create, publish, maintain, monitor, and secure APIs at any scale. With a few clicks in the AWS Management Console, you can create an API that acts as a "front door" for applications to access data, business logic, or functionality from your back-end services, such as workloads running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), code running on AWS Lambda, or any Web application.
Apigee Edge, the self-service, enables companies to secure, scale, manage, and analyze their digital business, and grow API programs to meet the increase in demand. Edge enables enterprises to design and build the APIs that securely share their services and data.
