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.

If you are truly using IBM API Management for an API gateway, you will be ok. if you start trying to build custom scripts to transform messages complex in nature, it will soon become unmanageable.

Pros

Dell Boomi API Management

  • Can integrate multiple sources: REST, SOAP, RDBM.
  • Cloud based so always easy to maintain.
  • Training new resources is always easy.
  • Easy to use UI which lets you create orchestrations nicely.

IBM API Management

  • Import APIs - We have an existing inventory of APIs and services, so having an easy import process was required. IBM provides the ability to import Swagger so the process was quick and easy.
  • Service Offerings - Can create plans to control various model offerings for varying clients depending on the need. You are not locked into a tier structure and can customize if a need arises.
  • API Usage - visibility into the use of an API with a wealth of reporting information allows you to support an API from a production use to trending and forecasting any future growth.

Cons

Dell Boomi API Management

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

IBM API Management

  • Troubleshooting deployment pipeline - identifying issues with your api based on restrictions through a deployment pipeline is difficult. If a quality assurance environment is less stringent than a production environment, making sure your api is accessible and configured appropriately is tough.
  • Code level scripting is limited to javascript and xslt. so if any complex fanning needs to occur, you are limited in tooling.
  • Administration is more cumbersome than it needs to be. There are roles/profiles that are defined, but to use a group email for the approval or use of an api needs to managed better. A more thorough thought process needs to be defined - which I think IBM is tackling as an improvement.

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.

It wasn't my decision.

IBM API Management

There are a lot of similarities between Apigee Edge and IBM API Management. Some of the differences at the time of this posting is...1) IBM APIM/C integrates better with other products. Dynatrace is used to track API and service specifics with the ability to offload those statistics for operational reporting.2) If you are evolving from DataPower, IBM API Management is a logical choice to support additional REST APIs.3) Generating keys is simple. Integration of those keys with a secure data vault is easy as well for your consumer.

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.

IBM API Management

  • Centralizing on an API management platform was imperative. Being able to support SOAP UIs as well as REST APIs was required. Because of the tooling, service inventory and provisioning can be managed - regardless of the pricing and cost structures are used.
  • Constructing plans that provide tiering options based on rate limits help in onboarding new consumers. The lesser cost in onboarding through an API gateway outweighs the cost of modifying/configuring an API to handle multiple clients.
  • Defining guidance and onboarding practices while rolling out the product also helps in the adoption, reference architecture, and governance that can save your company money.
