Apigee

Apigee has worked well for us to digitize the enterprise and share services readily to any interested party. It works very well for third party integration to provide services on multiple platforms. It is great product for expanding your enterprise's horizon and being involved in the digital world of today.

SAP Cloud Platform

SAP Cloud Platform is best suited to an enterprise use-case that values rapid development and deployment, where the product is well suited to the capabilities offered by the platform.Though the platform offers an enticing suite of services, I would not recommend using the platform for only one of these services/APIs as there are likely simpler and cheaper alternatives. The true benefit of SAP Cloud Platform is combining several services.

Pros

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Pricing is certainly "enterprise" and therefore not be a fit for everyone
  • More use cases, examples, and tutorials would help given the limitless combinations of services and use cases

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.

In an SAP-integrated enterprise project, SAP Cloud is a great solution. However Microsoft Azure is more flexible in terms of a scale of project & pricing, so may be superior for certain use cases, particularly where SAP integration is not necessary.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • It was quick and easy to evaluate the platform for our needs
  • Ultimately we did not move forward with the platform due to our project needs changing
