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.

Not many products like this exist, due to the tremendous effort needed to get them off the ground, but for data mining this product is perfect!

  • 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.

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.

  • Setup is complicated, involved months and sometimes years to set up and tune.
  • Maintenance is complicated.
  • Clustering could be a pain.

Alternatives Considered

A Node server as a proxy that uses JSON Web Tokens would be more maintainable than Apigee.

Less expensive then the competitors, modules are self-sustained and able to function directly. It involves less coding, and a lot of things can be done in house!

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.

  • Ability to aggregate multiple sources and gather with Informatica has been great!
  • Ability to revert data back to the users in a timely fashion is a great asset of Informatica MDM.
  • Coding of the modules and such in-house has saved us thousands!
