We changed our name from IT Central Station: Here's why

Microsoft Azure API Management Primary Use Case

Vice President - Competency and Channels at Techwave.

It's more of a subscription driven consumption based model, where the APIs are developed to connect backend ERP systems such as SAP and deployed into a library for consumption by both internal and external consumers. The APIs are exposed to the consumers that get onto the API gateway and identify the needed API from the library, use the instructions to subscribe, quickly test and connect to the backend SAP to get the expected information/transaction processed.  Prior to this solution there was an age old EDI interface solution.  This is enabling the customers to be more flexible with their integration architecture and be more agile as it reduces the IT integration dependency and provides a better user experience.

This is part of Techwave application modernization strategy to bring solutions that can bring agility and flexibility to customers and be able to decouple business with huge IT dependent solutions.  This is helping us to help our customers migrate away from the age old EDI technology to the latest API and microservices based architectures.

Enterprise Infrastructure Architecture at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees

Our primary use case is for managing internal APIs, for ordering process APIs and in general process APIs, and resource manipulation APIs. We need an API management to get a better overview, and this is one use case with analytics parts. Another use case is security, being able to rotate API keys and to manage access at a signature point. Finally, we also have the developer portals with the self-service capabilities so that developers can request access to APIs through a developer portal and manage their own keys.

We are still in the ramp-up phase, so currently we have actively two or three guys using it. We're planning to increase usage. We're in partnership with Microsoft and I'm an enterprise architect.

Integration Architect at a wellness & fitness company with 5,001-10,000 employees

We use it to manage the API. We have a backend API with service in the backend. We use API Management in the front to manage the vendors. They can do their own testing. It's quicker for us to put in the specifications so we can knock off the responses. We build the specs and then get an external developer to start the development without the web service being ready. 

We also use it for the security and for the clock in features.
