Apigee

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.

Dell Boomi

Boomi is an integration platform. It will address integration requirements between applications, cloud or on-premise. Also, will allow you to integrate with vendors and customers via EDI or FTP for data transfers. Examples: - NetSuite/Oracle eBusiness Suite/SAP with vendors for manufacturing management and financial transactions- cloud to cloud integration(NetSuite to Namely/OpenAir/Concur, SalesForce to ERP)- on-premise to cloud: custom legacy apps that almost every company has can be integrated to cloud apps, making the transition to 100% cloud apps easier

Pros

  • 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.

  • Frequent updates to the platform.
  • New connectors are frequently added.
  • Great support documents and community.
  • Real-time integrations.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Honestly, the user interface. It has a lot of room to improve to get aligned with our products it is working with. The design is intuitive, but somewhat clunky because of the interface. It seems to be about 10-years behind other products in this area. The UI is important, especially when you are trying to attract users that may not have a development background.

Boomi is a great product and crucial to our infrastructure. We have not seen another system that would provide us with the same features and robustness, so there is no reason to not renew.

They are quick to respond. Sometimes I figure out workarounds before they respond, but I am impatient and try other options. They acknowledge issues and have a Suggestions portal, the knowledge base is helpful too.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Return on Investment

  • Easily spin up a new proxy has helped in setting up a proxy for new products right away in days.
  • Analytics and reports generation in Apigee has helped understand the business better and helped tuned the cost factor.
  • Apigee could get better with the cost factor.

  • (Negative) Ended up spending more time trying to get around the UI interface for more complex integration.
  • (Negative) Licensing cost for Dev/QA/Staging and Prod makes this product very expensive even for simple stuff. Even a simple process that needs a DB connector, Http Connector and a Mail Connector, you would need 3 connector x 4 environments = 12 connectors at roughly $500 per month per connector.... $6000 per month for a very simple integration.
  • (Positive) Simple integration can be built within few hours.
