Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"One of the best parts of this solution is the implementation as we did not need to use code or out-of-box policies. When it comes to the cloud-based architecture, there is a high level of reliability.""It's easy to use and the security features are valuable.""The most valuable feature is monetization.""I'm still evaluating, but in terms of overall performance and stability, it's quite good.""Great flexibility with its features.""I use it because it's simple, it automatically updates, and It hasn't given me any issues.""Apigee makes proxy management very simple.""Apigee has proven to be one of the best of the breed."

"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 most valuable feature of the solution is security.""This platform can be highly scalable."

More Axway AMPLIFY API Management Pros →

"They have an external developer platform that was a little bit painful.""It would be good if the Apigee management allowed us to be able to consolidate many operations into single one for the gateway functionality.""The account simplification process can be improved.""One feature they have to invest time into is the developer portal they use.""The analytical aspect of it could be better. I think it is fair if Apigee lets you configure some of the metrics of the key details you want to monitor in terms of analytics.""I would like to see the monitoring, dashboards, and reports improve.""An area for improvement would be to provide more information while troubleshooting.""iPaaS is something that we would like to see. For example, MuleSoft is kind of an integrated platform as a service (iPaaS), and it provides a lot of out-of-the-box connectors and other such things. This is where Apigee lacks. I'm not sure if that's the roadmap for Apigee, but any improvements on those lines would be helpful where things become easier to implement."

More Apigee Cons →

"In terms of customer service, the company needs to be easier to contact, and the support team needs to understand the situation and the product itself better.""Sometimes we find bugs where certain calls are not returning all the data we need.""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
  • "It is a bit on the expensive side. Its licensing cost is a bit high, and that's where we've seen people going back on their decisions."
  • "The price of Apigee could be less expensive. The solution can be purchased monthly or annually."
  • "Apigee is slightly expensive, but again, it can depend on the type of usage. All things considered, it is slightly expensive."
  • "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 increases as the usage increases."
  • "In Latin America, Apigee is expensive. It's not for small businesses; it's more for big businesses."
  • "Apigee is subject to licensing fees."
  • "Its price is reasonable for the features they provide and the maturity of the platform."
  • More Apigee 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."

    Apigee is a platform for developing and managing APIs. Apigee offers an interface for your core services by wrapping them with a proxy layer which is then accessed by other developers. With Apigee, you can design and build APIs and then securely share their services and data without exposing any code.

    Because app developers make HTTP requests to an API proxy rather than directly to your services, your services are separated from the developers. All the developer needs to know is the URL of the API proxy endpoint, necessary query parameters, authorization credentials (if they exist), and the response data format.

    The API proxy isolates the app developer from your backend service. Therefore, you are free to change the service implementation if the public API remains consistent. By maintaining a consistent frontend API, existing client apps will continue to work regardless of changes on the backend.

    Key capabilities of the Apigee API management platform include:

    • Security: Protect APIs, messages, and backends with configurable policies such as OAuth, API key verification, XML/JSON threat protection, and access control.

    • API gateway: Secure and mediate the traffic between clients and backends, and between a company’s APIs and the developers who use the APIs.

    • Developer portal: Attract and engage application developers, enabling them to discover, explore, purchase, and test APIs and register to access and use the APIs.

    • API console: The console helps developers learn and work with APIs.

    • API lifecycle management: Manage the process of designing, developing, publishing, deploying, and versioning APIs.

    • Automated documentation: Automate the development of API documentation and software development kits.

    • Machine learning: Utilize machine learning and analytics to generate actionable insights and reports.
    • API monitoring: Apigee offers monitoring tools for API troubleshooting, security, and optimization.

    Reviews from Real Users:

    Apigee stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Several major ones are its rich developer portal, its advanced analytics, and its central monitoring system.

    Carlos R., a software architect at Caja Los Andes writes, “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.”

    An associate vice president at a tech services company notes, “The analytics function and the developer portal are the two valuable features of Apigee. The analytics part is very good, and the developer portal is quite rich in features. The authentication mechanisms are quite easily built into Apigee, which is something that most of the other products have also now started supporting.”

    Axway API Management Plus combines API lifecycle management, secure integration services, monitoring and analytics to help you innovate faster and heighten ecosystem engagement. It is part of the Axway AMPLIFY data integration and engagement platform, which also includes unified app development for mobile to provide a complete solution for rapid change and innovation.
