Dell Boomi API Management

Dell Boomi API Management is particularly well suited for multi-tenant cloud integration across various APIs/services/providers/etc. We were able to easily and quickly integrate the APIs from various providers across our organization. It is less well suited for external API development. Any substantial changes to external connections required more integration work than we were used to and we decided to avoid these situations.

IBM API Connect

IBM API Connect is a perfect fit if you want to digitize and expose all your new plus old legacy services in a unified manner through the API mechanism. If your company has many different applications of different nature and working, then it works like a charm because you can separate them based on the URI which you assign to them. Another great advantage is of the Datapower gateway because you can integrate that with all most any system seamlessly and that too with the highest security protocol and volume without any issues. Another advantage is the whitelisting of the IPs which you need to do only once and after that, you can call many services from the same front-end or back-end because the IP remains the same, only the URI part varies. It is not particularly useful in a situation where you only have a handful of services and you only make changes in those and not developing new services or adding new clients.

IBM API Connect

  • API Connect as a platform is very advanced and allow you to create APIs, and host them on the portal seamlessly
  • Datapower is a very powerful gateway which takes care of all the infosec. Very stable product
  • The release management is also super easy, and graduating code from Dev to test and then to prod is well versioned

Cons

Dell Boomi API Management

  • Certain APIs harder to integrate than others
  • Usage limits can be increased
  • Cost on the expensive side

IBM API Connect

  • The first thing challenge we faced with the product was that if you deploying it to a third party cloud, that was very challenging and we need IBM team help at every step of the way and as well all know IBM support doesn't come cheap. A reason for that is that there isn't enough documentation done on the subject from IBM side.
  • The upgrade process is not that seamless and involves a lot of hassles.
  • You really need to have our requirements sorted out clearly because it is not very easy to customize the UI according to your needs, So you need to involve IBM from the start and give them clear requirements and then work with them to achieve it.

We have always had a great experience with Dell customer service across a variety of products and services in the past and Dell Boomi API Management is no exception. We have found them very responsive and helpful both during the initial sales and setup process as well as on an ongoing basis through our experience once we were customers.

Alternatives Considered

Dell Boomi API Management

It wasn't my decision.

IBM API Connect

We selected API connect as both tools have more or less same features, the differentiation was we also use IIB, and seamless integration with IIB was the major factor

Return on Investment

Dell Boomi API Management

  • It would have not been possible to run our application with out integration, and Dell Boomi API Management served the purpose.
  • Not as effective while communicating with SOAP as it is in the case of Rest or SQL.
Mian Ghulam Ghous | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM API Connect

  • IBM API Connect has been very beneficial for our business because it has increased the productivity and collaboration to a great extent. All the team members are aware of the method they need to follow to develop new API and check internally if there is already an API existing to replicate that functionality. So, reusability has increased significantly after this and saved us a lot of effort and time.
  • The work of the IT Security has lessened because now we don't need to submit IP white-listing requests to them of each new API being developed. If that client is allowed to hit 1 service, he is allowed to hit other services as well as long as he has the proper SSL certs and auth tokens or any other method of authentication used in the service.
  • The code promotion and deployment of artefacts has been really smooth and without issues. So, that is a big plus if you consider production deployment going swiftly and hassle-free.
