"The technical support is good. Whenever we need anything, we have our IT team work with IBM to change whatever requirement is needed."
"It is a complete all-in-one solution."
"The solution offers a pretty good SLA."
"It is quite stable. We've not had any problem. It has made for a good buy because we are finding that other companies that have similar set ups go down maybe once a month."
"It is easy to use and stable."
"The functionalities on offer are very good."
"We really like the runtime capabilities of IBM API Connect. The creation of products and the control of the monetization and hit rate are some of the features which we've found very valuable."
"The services that I consume through IBM API Connect are beneficial. It can handle multiple API management."
"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."
"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."
"They seem to have left out a feature for microservices and also a certification module for OIDC."
"The developmental process is not quite user-friendly."
"It should be cheaper."
"The solution would be better if it had cloud functionalities."
"The documentation needs to be a bit better."
"In terms of what needs improvement, some of the product documentation could be better."
"It is expensive within this class of products."
"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."
