We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is possible to connect a service to a mainframe program or back transaction in a matter of minutes or hours at the most.""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."

"The initial setup isn't overly difficult.""The most valuable features for us are security and centralization.""The security, the authentication, and the publishing qualities are great."

More Oracle API Management Pros →

Cons
"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."

More OpenLegacy Cons →

"From an administration and developer point of view, the user interface and user experience are not great.""Before gaining experience with the product, I found that it was not simple to use and things took longer to do than I had anticipated.""We'd like it if they could reduce the cost without sacrificing on features."
