We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's easy to integrate and provide support for existing AWS services if I use the AWS API gateway.""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 flexible. It was valuable.""It is very helpful, with our API-based applications.""Amazon stack is easy to use in combination with other Amazon services, so it was a logical continuity.""All information and data needs to be sanitized before it enters a private domain and we use this solution to do this."

"The biggest advantage of OpenLegacy was how simple the technology was. We were able to build out the OpenLegacy parts very quickly. We put together a couple hundred APIs in six months.""It is possible to connect a service to a mainframe program or back transaction in a matter of minutes or hours at the most."

More OpenLegacy Pros →

"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 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.""From a use cases perspective, you need to have an internal and external gateway. AWS can only handle external traffic so has to be used together with another solution.""Monitoring could be improved.""I am not completely satisfied with Technical Support."

More Amazon API Gateway Cons →

"I'd like to see OpenLegacy develop its low-code/no-code (LCNC) solutions. They've expanded somewhat their horizons for integration beyond mainframe CICS, which is their sweet spot. They have some tooling in that area, but it's not as good as it needs to be.""The pricing of the solution could be more flexible and allow for once-off payment versus annual licensing. This would be more appealing to companies in Latin America."

    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.

    OpenLegacy helps organizations quickly launch innovative digital services by extending their core back-end systems to the web, mobile and cloud in days or weeks versus months. Our microservice-enabled API integration and management software quickly reduces project backlog by automating and accelerating microservices and API creation, deployment, testing and management from core applications, mainframes and databases. Together, business and IT teams can quickly, easily and securely meet consumer, partner or employee demands for digital services without modernizing or replacing core systems, and without special programming skills or invasive changes to existing systems and architectures. OpenLegacy is designed for ongoing management of microservices APIs and is based on open standards, so our software plays nice with your current technology stack and supports agile, DevOps and continuous development.
