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.

SAP Cloud Platform

SAP Cloud Platform is great for the company that needs a one-stop-shop for their complete e2e solution. No more having to maintain multiple applications separately. This is good for the company that needs to unify their solutions under one umbrella and allow the seamless bi-directional flow of data from start to finish. SAP Cloud Platform is not for everyone. Those smaller companies that may not have the budget or may not have the complexity of applications may not benefit as much as larger companies with a much larger footprint.

Pros

Apigee Edge

  • Better exception handling with the Raise exception policies help to monitor the flow by setting up the flow conditions.
  • Easy development of a Proxy and APIs with much less tutoring and helps make getting started for new users easy.
  • Very good documentation and blog with details of most common failures and error handling.
  • A very very easy to use console.

SAP Cloud Platform

  • The effort put in with the technical team and business for testing each new upgrade related to a product.
  • Feasibility to have our own custom apps.

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.

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.

It is definitively better suited for SAP systems
