Anypoint Platform

Any realtime integrations are ideal use cases for Anypoint platform. Batch processes are not appropriate for Anypoint platform.

IBM App Connect

They are one of the market leaders in the Gartner's report. Since it uses Datapower as the gateway, an organization which uses DP as a gateway can easily integrate IBM API Connect to their ecosystem.From my research, the cheapest version of a cloud subscription is more [expensive] than Apigee. I think Apigee's cheapest is around ~300-400 USD/ month.

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.

Cons

  • Development is a little complex in comparison to others in the market. A high learning curve is required for developers.

  • WebSphere Cast Iron is not aligned with the Salesforce product roadmap in the way that other ETL competitors are. When I speak with Salesforce reps and other partners they see Cast Iron as lagging significantly behind in that ecosystem.

It is the best on-premise application to cloud integration in the market. I guess IBM is planning to integrate IBM App Connect with the IBM API Connect solution.

You can do some really powerful things with this system. The overall design is an attempt to make configurable some of the routine tasks/common functionality, but allow for development/customization of the core of the application.

Usually, the IBM Ops team provides a resolution or a response for 80% of defects raised in my project. There is one which has been open on their end for more than 3 months. With literally no response even after multiple follow-ups.

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.

IBM API Connect is positioned ahead of Apigee in the Gartner report. But in my opinion the development experience and the data transformation capability is way better in Apigee and it’s a proved solution and has a huge client list. (I have worked on an American Express implementation where the Apigee platform supported millions of transactions).The analytics features are not available in the free Bluemix version of API Connect. Whereas it is available in Apigee. The security features in Layer 7 (now known as CA API Management) are way better than Apigee or IBM API Connect.

  • Our customer appreciated our work.
  • Our customer appreciated having a very solid production environment while not needing to spend money to maintain it.
