"The pricing of the solution could be improved upon. We'd like it if it was less costly.""In terms of the functionalities of a typical API gateway, Apigee is actually doing its job, but when it involves integration with backend applications, which some gateways have, I don't believe it has this functionality. You have to do Java or do some other low-level coding before you are able to do the integration. Apigee has a lot of components, which means that management will be a bit difficult. It probably has ten different components, and all of these components leverage open-source utilities, such as NGINX. When those open-source vendors upgrade their utility, Apigee usually lags behind because they need to do a lot of tests and any required development in their own platform. They need to do rigorous testing to make sure that nothing breaks. Because of that, it takes them a while to upgrade whatever components have been upgraded by the open-source vendor that owns the utility. We've been chasing them for a particular upgrade for well over a year and a half, and they have not done that upgrade. It is creating a security risk for us as an enterprise, but that upgrade has not been done, even though the open-source vendor, the owner of the utility, has upgraded it a long time ago.""Apigee does not have a testing feature.""What my clients don't like is that the on-premises solution is not being treated and maintained as well as the cloud solution.""The user interface could be better. It could be easier to navigate and more user-friendly.""Apigee could do more to make users aware of what is available in the add-ons.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The cost of the licensing is based on the number of API calls that are made."
  • "It is not suited for small companies. It's expensive."
  • "It is more expensive when you compare to open-source products or other vendors."
  • "We have a contract for three years. I don't know the cost."
  • "I would like to see the implementation of further options for billing because as it is now, the opportunities you have in terms of a package are limited."
  • "The iicense is subscription-based."
  • "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."
