We have a legacy and non-legacy databases that are both on-premises and off-premises. Apigee is used to connect to any Google-based applications that are available. In addition, we are experimenting and testing in other environments. I'm a CIO in consulting.

I'm a part of a service provider company, and we basically provide all kinds of services for our customers. One of the areas for which we provide services is API management. We work a lot with Apigee, and we have experience and a good team working with Apigee. In terms of use cases, we've created a good marketplace for one of the clients. They are a logistics company, and they have a lot of vendors and partners with whom they work. So, we have created a marketplace where the vendor's partners can integrate for their shipments and other things. They can integrate their applications into this marketplace. We have also implemented developer portals where we do the onboarding of developers. They can create their code SDKs, etc. Currently, we are at a customer site, and we are migrating the on-premise version H to Apigee X, which is the latest one.

I'm a developer as well as an architect. We have internal clients as well as external clients. We have other teams within the enterprise that use this platform. They do development, and sometimes, we do development for them. Then we host these solutions in the same infrastructure. We also have external clients who want to integrate their applications with us.

We are working on some client POC where we have all the workloads deployed on Google Cloud. We wanted a gateway that was more like an API Management tool. We wanted to manage all our APIs centrally in one place. For example, we can route the traffic. We can limit, we can perform throttling, we can have the security checks like the authentication mechanism implemented centrally. We can also have a reverse proxy to our service endpoint.

We have an API, which I developed using multiple languages and different applications. We have a lot of applications, and they have their individual APIs. We create a proxy for those applications in Apigee, and we expose those proxies to access those APIs.

We are using Apigee as the API gateway. We also use it for our preparation. We use the API for security and a lot of other tasks. Our customer use cases don't have any legacy systems. We're using Apigee, however, Apigee doesn't provide for a subscribe-publisher capability. It meant Kafka was just to provide the matching capabilities of Apigee. However, mainly we consider this solution as the API gateway and management system.

My current job is to compare all the different API gateways and to create a report for management. We use this tool primarily to secure our API. We have a set of API from our four businesses and we're trying to apply these APIs to multiple applications. For example, third parties can leverage our APIs built to their own solutions and applications and we build applications on top of these APIs. I make the system available like a mobile app. Primarily the API management for the entire ecosystem of AP that we are building and the DGPS are providing, have varied capabilities across the organization. Apigee also acts as a proxy, everything is done within that. We also leverage the developer portal of Apigee as a main feature, which can be given to outside customers by third parties to build their own applications around our API. One of the standout features of Apigee is the different PolyPhaser functions that we use. For example, we use throttling, encryption/decryption and we also use external AP integration with PV.2 I'm a senior architect and big data engineer and we are customers of Apigee.

Primarily we do the Apigee implementations for the customer. We are more like a service company. We sell the product and consult with the clients about their needs. There are options for the API gateways and we look at the client's requirements, their budgeting, and then we deliver and install the new solution.

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our clients. We also it it ourselves. Our use case involves accessing functions on our backend systems through a portal used on mobile devices. The app on the mobile device uses the internet portal, and we have the API as a security layer to pass the functions through to the backend.

We use Apigee every day. Because we have a backend system, we use Apigee to capture and track all of our transactions and for monitoring calls, which is the target for our client service. We then use this information to create a report and provide a price for each transaction. For this reason, we created a proxy that we use as an integration layer, like API management, which helps build applications. For that reason, each and every call goes through Apigee so that we can track and capture all of the information.

We are a solution provider and Apigee is one of the API management products that we implement for our customers. Most of our clients want to expose their APIs to their consumers and they need to have a generic infrastructure for it. At the same time, they want it to be scalable as well as highly secure.

The primary use case for this solution is to integrate both external applications as well as internal applications. We use some to integrate other applications, but most of them are just proxies that are for fronting the backend APIs.

We are using API Connect for approx. 10 months. It has been (and still is) a very stony road. We are now considering another solution. My findings w.r.t to API Connect: Pros:  - Concept of catalogs is useful (for us) w.r.t. dealing with several tenants. - When it is running, it looks very stable. Cons: - Installation and updates were a nightmare each time. We use OpenShift; and we had problems for up to three weeks for an update, including support from IBM. We cannot afford that in production, which leads to investigations on our side. - Small amount of policies, compared to some of the competitors. In the current version, a "map" is not supported (according to IBM). - No debugging of the flow. - High footprint of pods and resources, compared to an alternative.

I found TIBCO Mashery had the best Developer portal. Mashery helped create the API Management category almost over 10 years ago as a SaaS vendor focusing on enabling the developers. try or api.macy's i think both are good developer portal examples of mashery. OpenAPI/Swagger is just the start with Innovation around Flogo and Mashling facilatating evented APIs built on composable microservices.
