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.

Tableau Online

I think the whole service is suitable for people who don't have the time or resources to build a real-time analytics engine and integrate it with their product or service. You get a ready-made platform where you can instantly create insightful reports of your client's usage of your service and share them with multiple stakeholders.

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.

Tableau Online

  • Tableau Online has a really good search system to help users find data.
  • Tableau Online has a system to send regular reports of workbooks that users choose to subscribe to.
  • Tableau Online has a very user friendly app that can be used by anyone with no formal training.
  • Tableau Online refreshes on an hourly and daily basis to make sure its users always has up to date data.

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.

Tableau Online

  • Tableau is very expensive and the pricing is inflexible. It is catered more towards large organizations and cannot be flexibly used by mid-size firms.
  • After sales support is not up to the mark.
  • Versioning is not great when you upgrade the software. This is a very simple possible improvement. IT security is not up to the mark when we ran results by attacking the software. Sometimes IT support is required when you upgrade.

I am not the one deciding whether to use apigee or not really. But personally, I would recommend the use of it as developing APIs on it is easy. And as a mediator between backend servers, we could easily modify request and responses in it without touching any backend code while having a centralize gateway to access our backend APIs too.

Online it is very easy to use and I think that it is very convenient that I can open it up in my browser from anywhere, on any device. However, the mobile experience is not the best, and not very easy to read for most reports. Charts are fine, but spreadsheets are not ideal for reading on mobile.

Quite hard to get support, at least on the coding side, when we encounter blockers. But general concerns, they would schedule a call to you for them to get a whole picture of your concern. Albeit in my experience, bad really as they haven't replied about the progress, but otherwise seems to have been fixed.

Overall it's pretty easy to get support from Tableau Online, there's documentation online so typically can resolve quick questions that way. We typically can resolve any account related issues promptly as well so at least from a maintenance viewpoint (not thinking about new features or integrations), there haven't been any issues with getting the support that we needed.

Tableau Online

Both Tableau Online and BI solutions provide visualizations. In Power BI we choose the visualization first, then drag the data into it. In Tableau, we select the data and switch between visualizations on the fly. It’s easier to jump between visualizations in Tableau. Power BI might be sluggish when working with extremely large datasets whereas Tableau online has an advantage in this area due to its extensive features.Power BI doesn’t have the ability to publish reports with all associated data which means some information can be left out of visualizations whereas Tableau online has a steep learning curve and flexible features.

Return on Investment

Apigee Edge

  • Unruly, difficult to maintain, unable to test, difficult to troubleshoot and debug. Every ticket that requires Apigee work increases stress and anxiety.
Tim Gragg | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tableau Online

  • Tableau is super user friendly which enhances engagement among users.
  • Tableau helped my team tackle data-related issues and answer with complex statistical solutions.
  • The dashboard I created for the team helped even those with little to no background knowledge of Tableau.
