Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is very helpful, with our API-based applications.""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.""Amazon stack is easy to use in combination with other Amazon services, so it was a logical continuity.""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.""It's easy to integrate and provide support for existing AWS services if I use the AWS API gateway."

"Most of the time, we need to install a plug-in without having any lapse in services or restarting the application. The WSO2 platform can do all deployments without any downtime.""Yes WSO2 API Manager is scalable""WSO2 API Manager's most valuable features are the simple interface that is easy to use and the APIs lifecycle.""WSO2 API Manager is easy to use.""The solution is open-source.""API management lifecycle is the most valuable.""WSO2 API Manager is a stable solution.""The main feature — the publication of the API, the management section — is great in general."

More WSO2 API Manager Pros →

"Monitoring could be improved.""The integration could be improved.""I am not completely satisfied with Technical Support.""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 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."

"I think they could greatly improve the general UX with their solutions.""Providing easy configuration for email and SMS notifications, layout and customization of admin and developer landing pages.""I would improve the product documentation. There are some gaps, and it can be difficult to find the proper documentation for the product if you need to solve something.""They don't have different URLs for administrators.""I would like it to be a more stable solution. Maybe in the last version that is approved. For me it would be good if they had a community established version.""Integration is an area that needs to be improved.""I can say that user management is not really flexible. So, if I want to create 1,000 store users, I can't do it as a publisher. You have to register as a store user using the store URL.""I would like it to be a more convenient development platform with the ability to write orchestrations and so on. Our problem with this product is that in my country, we are the only enterprise that has been using this product. We're missing a lot of knowledge from colleagues to consult with, and we also aren't able to recruit people with relevant skills. It is a big problem. The small team that is maintaining this product is the only team that can actually relate to any technical issue. The support that we're getting from the company is not great. There is also a cultural gap there because they're from Sri Lanka, and it is not easy. They're putting in a lot of effort, but they are not meeting our expectations."
