Azure API Management

APIM is useful for the standard scenarios:
1) Securing your back-end APIs - If you have a legacy back-end web service that has a basic authentication scheme, you can add some additional security by placing APIM in front, and requiring subscription keys. Leverage your existing firewall to ensure only your APIM instance can communicate with your back-end API, and you've basically added a layer of protection.
2) Lift and shift - there are always going to be clients that don't want to update their clients to use a newer API; in some cases you can make a newer API look like an older one by implementing some complex policies in APIM. You can also do the opposite, making older APIs look new, such as making an XML back-end accept both JSON and XML.
3) Centralizing your APIs - if you've acquired another company and want to make their API set look as if it's a part of the larger whole, APIM is an easy way to provide a consistent front-end interface for developers.

Microsoft Teams

Well Suited: Microsoft Teams is well suited if you have to rigorously collaborate with 10 or more colleagues on a daily basis and even share files, calls and calendars. If you are working in a team and almost every time has to rely or need somebody's advice on the work you are doing, then Microsoft Teams will work as bliss for you and you would love the experience throughout.Not Suited: If your Internet connection with low bandwidths and also having computer systems which are not very great at configurations, I would not recommend this piece to software to you. This can make you feel annoyed and at the same time, miserable if you are not able to connect with right people on right time and in turn working on such a slow pace, which otherwise would have been quite fast on light-weight tool.

Pros

Azure API Management

  • Easy commissioning of APIs.
  • Great policies to control access.
  • Easy mock services for testing.

Microsoft Teams

  • It allows all of the documents for a project to be stored on the cloud and updated in real time, instead of on a network drive where changes are more difficult to track.
  • It allows teams to keep their communication and project files centralized, instead of in disparate places.

Cons

Azure API Management

  • Lack of robustness is a bit of an issue. Several other providers offer more options and capabilities, but then, they are lacking in interface ease.
  • As with anything Azure, pricing is really hard to stay on top of. I always find that you really don’t know what you’re paying for until you get the bill. Having an excellent Azure Administrator can help resolve that.
  • Integrating with app services outside of Azure can be a challenge, or at least much more challenging than just using Azure App Services.

Microsoft Teams

  • A taskbar widget that allows replies from right clicking the taskbar icon.
  • more GIF engines beyond GIPHY, or a native GIPHY interface complete with mood categories.
  • Recent Chats column collapsible to bubbles with initial before disappearing when narrowing the window, similar to Apple iMessage on Mac software.

Microsoft Teams has really shown how it can assist in this current environment but even without so, it is valuable as a tool to connect with individuals and collaborate on conference schedules.

The user interface is pretty clean. There is a lot of power to it, but it doesn't take long to to get up and running. It is a bit overwhelming the first time you come at it, especially if you're mainly thinking of it as a replacement of Skype for Business instant messaging. It does that great, along with the other features Skype has, such as video/audio calls and meetings, along with screensharing. But it can do so much more. As you get more and more familiar with the tool, it's fairly straightforward to add additional functionality, like document storage, wiki collaboration, and Planner integration, among other things.

Microsoft Teams has a good support and an easy system to find answers. There are also tutorials available for learning the basics of the program which is very helpful. Being able to use the program on computers, tablets and mobile devices is very helpful. The whole Outlook 360 package has a good support network which makes integrating new programs into the office easier

Alternatives Considered

Azure API Management

Azure APIM vs Amazon API Gateway:
1) Azure APIM was a complete package that included a developer portal.
2) We are very Microsoft centric - so the Microsoft product suite aligned very well with our business needs.
3) It was faster and easier to stand up Azure APIM for testing than it was for the Amazon API Gateway.

Microsoft Teams

Personally I'm not a fan of applications that try to do everything. I prefer software that are dedicated to one topic, for instance Adobe PhotoShop is a vast and complex solution for editing images.I think Teams offers comparable quality in terms of audio, video and text chat to software like Skype or Zoom. However, when compared to Jira for planning and Confluence for documentation, Teams doesn't even compete.
