Anypoint API Manager

Anypoint API Manager is well suited to organizations where they want to manage the entire API lifecycle from a single platform. For organizations which have implemented their integration layer with Mule ESB, it's the perfect platform. They can design, build, deploy and manage all of their APIs from the Anypoint platform.For organizations where the cost is a major decision-driving factor, they can opt for some other cheaper options like AWS API manager, Layer 7, etc. So basically, the features which you're getting ready-made in Anypoint API manager you can manually configure in AWS and save some money.

Oracle API Platform Cloud

There are countless solutions and needs in the marketplace. Some solutions are straight forward, other highly complicated and innovative. From my perspective, our platform and application is highly complex and innovative, with many "one-off" features.

Pros

  • API Manager provides easy API Policy Governance. You do not have to manage multiple platforms for managing the policies.
  • Supports hybrid Mule EBS environments. You can configure both CouldHub-based and on-premise-based API using Mulesoft API manager in a similar manner.
  • It's very easy to implement API proxy.
  • User friendly UI.
  • Single platform to manage all.

  • Oracles Cloud is endlessly variable, and endlessly expandable.
  • These are qualities that we needed in our platform. Oracle's Name in business was also an important aspect of our decision.
  • The most important "like" is the support. Oracle Backs up its cloud with a technical expertise that I believe is second to none.

Cons

  • Mulesoft does not provide independent API Manager solution. Unlike some well-known API Management platforms, for example, AWS API Gateway, you cannot manage or configure APIs which are hosted on some other platforms (i.e. WSO2, Fusion middleware etc.). So, you always have to purchase the integration solution with API Manager.
  • If you compare the Anypoint API manager costs with its peers like AWS, it is very costly and that's why it does not attract small organizations.

  • Planned maintenance. Oracle has certain days it schedules maintenance. We have been speaking with Oracle executives about the inability to schedule maintenance on days that are custom to the client.

Alternatives Considered

The main reason why we chose Anypoint API Manager is because it is well suited with the APIs developed in Mule ESB. AWS, on the other hand, is a very good tool but still evolving and offers a small set of API management features.

Return on Investment

  • Easy implementation - Policy enforcement is quick and easy, which in turn saves a lot in implementation costs.
  • Lower maintenance cost - Since it is hosted on Mulesoft-managed cloud, there is no maintenance cost involved.

  • For ROI, my advice would be to stay the course. It will take longer than you think and cost more than you expect.
