If you'll be working with 3 or more integration services you might need to use Mule.

IBM API Connect

IBM API connect has made good progress over the last 3 years; it has a strong support team and now trained resources are available. Don’t think there is any drawbacks as of now

Pros

  • If you are working with 3 or more services to integrate with a different data source, you'll be able to see the benefits of using Mule.
  • In terms of usability, you can develop an API even not fluent in any programming languages.
  • Mule also provides a lightweight Java-based enterprise service bus.

  • API Connect as a platform is very advanced and allow you to create APIs, and host them on the portal seamlessly
  • Datapower is a very powerful gateway which takes care of all the infosec. Very stable product
  • The release management is also super easy, and graduating code from Dev to test and then to prod is well versioned

Cons

  • Redefining API design is cumbersome and painful.
  • Batch transacting is not as intuitive as would be expected.

  • Currently they use 2 portals one for Test and one for Prod. They should merge them now
  • We wanted some relation between SSL & the application / organisation created in API connect. I believe it’s now part of API connect V6

Alternatives Considered

It enables customers to expose their APIs in a very simple and fast way. It can be used by non-expert developers. It is compliant with all major connection and data representation world standard.

We selected API connect as both tools have more or less same features, the differentiation was we also use IIB, and seamless integration with IIB was the major factor
