Apigee Edge

Apigee has been great when managing the quota based access to the APIs. It is really good and suitable when considering proxying the in-house server endpoints access with the way it provides security with API Key validation and OAuth.

TIBCO Cloud Mashery

TIBCO Cloud Mashery allows you to quickly enable API access control and management together with quick and easy setup of the developer portal. It focuses on core API management with limited integration features (filters, adapters, orchestration) - so TIBCO Cloud Mashery is mostly suited in a setup which already addresses integration features with other products.

Pros

Apigee Edge

  • Manage user access, we can allow specific access to users based on their need and even customize requests of services based on user requirements.
  • Allow branding, so that SFO can maintain its look and feel but still get the support and functionalities we need from Apigee.
  • Integrates well with other platforms we use.

Cons

Apigee Edge

  • Only one user can be active in a proxy at a time
  • No version control
  • Prohibited from using JSON.stringify on Apigee objects (tokens)
  • Debugging is difficult
  • Unable to rename or delete policies without bumping revision
  • Why would anyone give a js policy one name, display name something else, and script a different name?
  • 'Trace' limited to only 20 transactions
  • UI allows users to add target servers, but users must utilize the api to turn on SSL.
  • I'm sure there's more, they just aren't coming to mind right now.
  • Apigee forgets (expires?) your password at random intervals without notice. Every few weeks, or days, sometimes even three times in one day, I'll attempt to login to Apigee and my password will be 'wrong'. I've reset my password and Apigee still claims it's wrong. I've had to reset my password three times before it finally let me log back in.

TIBCO Cloud Mashery

  • The API technology is advancing fast. Capability enhancements for message-driven APIs are not yet available in TIBCO Cloud Mashery.
  • While TIBCO Cloud Mashery features OAuth Token capabilities, integration with major OAuth and OpenID Providers is not straight forward.
  • TIBCO has enhanced the features on managing the platform using TIBCO APIs. Still, not all features are provided as APIs and require manual configuration in management portal.

Alternatives Considered

Apigee Edge

Amazon API's gateway does not have easy to set up policies and exception handling. It does not have a tracking mechanism. However, it is better to use AWS API's gateway if you have tight integration with AWS tools.

TIBCO Cloud Mashery

When the evaluation of API Management was done, the market for a cloud, SaaS offering was limited. The short timeline for setting up TIBCO Cloud Mashery and the quick enablement of the developer portal have been major decision criteria.

Return on Investment

Apigee Edge

  • As a public entity it is hard to say how much ROI we can have. We have yet to create a billing and ROI plan. We are thinking of other ways to create ROI, possibly through data/service barter.

TIBCO Cloud Mashery

  • After the infrastructure setup of TIBCO Cloud Mashery was done, internal projects, such as mobile application connectivity, could benefit and focus on business content rather than on technical integration.
  • TIBCO Cloud Mashery controls on API Usage allow both easy access and openess while controlling and managing demand for higher call volumes.
  • Visibility of APIs enabled new (internal) innovation initatives with low effort on integration tasks.
  • TIBCO Cloud Mashery offers usage based pricing models to allow the customer to scale with transparent cost impact.
