Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The control that we have and the security features are very valuable. With regard to API implementation or API orchestration, it works very well in the cloud because as soon as you create an API with one click, you can actually expose your APIs.""When we did the product evaluation, we saw that TIBCO Mashery offers end-to-end API life cycle management. It provides all API features that are required for managing the complete life cycle. It includes the developer portal and tools for API monitorization. The out-of-box security features that TIBCO Mashery provides are enterprise-grade, which gives it an edge over other API products.""It is easy to work with .""The most valuable aspect of Mashery is its stability."

"As far as I am aware this solution is the first API Publisher that allows you to create and publish API and to manage the API lifecycle.""This solution is a little bit faster, easier to use, and has better integration than the other solutions I have experienced.""Helped us to quickly publish our Microservice APIs and enforcing different policies against them, it comes up with features like Security, Throttling policy and it provides complete access to customize API's which actually saves development effort and time.""WSO2 API Manager is easy to use.""The solution is stable.""The solution is open source and easy to configure.""One of the great things about WSO2 API Manager is that it is so easy to adopt. And because it's an open source solution, we're able to extend the implementation any time to suit our company needs better.""The main feature — the publication of the API, the management section — is great in general."

Cons
"Monetization is not that great in API management. You need customization. Improvements are needed with sandbox local as well as with monetization. Those features are missing.""I'd like to see TIBCO integrate authentication and security features into Mashery.""It lacks many features at the API gateway compared to other solutions.""They can fix some stability issues and probably make it more user-friendly so that not only an IT savvy person but an end-user can also easily navigate through this solution."

More TIBCO Mashery API Management Cons →

"WSO2 API Manager could increase their security compliance.""The user interface needs to improve, it is a bit outdated.""Providing easy configuration for email and SMS notifications, layout and customization of admin and developer landing pages.""The stability is pretty good, but it could be improved.""The solution could be more user friendly for engineers.""WSO2 API Manager could improve the API approval system.""I would improve the product documentation. There are some gaps, and it can be difficult to find the proper documentation for the product if you need to solve something.""I can say that user management is not really flexible. So, if I want to create 1,000 store users, I can't do it as a publisher. You have to register as a store user using the store URL."
