More IBM API Connect Pros →

"The product could be a little bit more user-friendly.""There should be more scripting possibilities.""They need to introduce more configurable functions to remove scripting or coding. Scripting should be minimized. It should have exhaustive functions. Currently, it lacks in this aspect.""They are lacking in some streaming features, and messaging features from a listener's point of view.""It crashes if we run high-volume integration."

More Boomi AtomSphere Integration Cons →

"The automation and the simplicity could be improved.""The monetization of the API could be improved. The pricing for the consumer is also very important to improve this solution.""One thing about API Connect that could be improved is the security schemes. There are so many security schemes, and from a product perspective, IBM could improve the user experience of the configuration security scheme.""The solution would be better if it had cloud functionalities.""The installation was difficult with the IBM toolkit.""The developer portal could be easier to customize.""The developmental process is not quite user-friendly.""IBM API Connect could improve the security of the application and the integration."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "When it comes to pricing, it's not so much about being less expensive as it is about how they don't tie to the hardware on the underlined VMware that you run on, as other vendors do"
  • "The cost of the solution is in the neighborhood of $20,000 annually. There are no costs above the standard licensing fee."

  • "It's an expensive product."
  • "IBM API Connect could be cheaper."
  • "It is quite an expensive product."
  • "It should be cheaper. It has a yearly licensing."
  • "The price of the solution is very expensive, it can turn many customers away."
  • "API Connect's license cost could be a little lower. But, unfortunately, there aren't many open-source API gateways. Ideally, some new developers could come up with a minimum-functionality open-source solution."
  • "This is a licensed product. If your company is looking to obtain a license, you have to work with IBM partners."
  • "API Connect was highly expensive for us, but the decision to switch was made before I joined the company. It seems like the company bought it, but they didn't know how to use it. After two years, they decided to reevaluate and conduct some cost estimates."
