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.

WebSphere DataPower Gateway is really beneficial if you are trying to integrate two or more systems. It provides you with comfort and peace of mind by creating a DMZ zone for the services which are going out of the intranet to hit external clients APIs. It is greatly recommended if you have a very high volume service or API which is being used by a majority of clients because it has a dedicated physical box present which takes care of memory, CPU and all such stuff. So, all your transactions happen at wire-speed.

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 DataPower Gateway

  • The most obvious thing that DataPower does exceptionally well is security. All the built-in supported security capabilities allow us to isolate most security tasks to DataPower and as a result "protect" down steam services/systems to have to deal with security.
  • DataPower is very good at protocol conversion and as it is usually used on the edge allows you to narrow down the protocols used between the companies public and private networks.
  • The appliance concept makes maintenance, recovery and, management so much simpler.

Cons

Dell Boomi API Management

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

  • The old interface is being really missed by our team as the new WebUI interface is not that intuitive or easy to work with. It takes a lot of time to load. There should be an inbuilt wizard for creating a Rest service as well like there is for an XML based service.
  • IBM support is very knowledgeable but it's not that easy to reach them. They don't release the fix patches very soon which also becomes a big issue in certain situations where critical projects are involved.
  • Lastly, DataPower has its steep learning curve and it requires time and effort on your end to gain full control and make the most of the advanced features which it offers. Finding the right resource in the market is not that easy.

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.

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 DataPower Gateway

  • It has really taken our business to the next level. We have expanded and integrated with so many new vendors and for all those integrations DataPower is serving as our security gateway.
  • We don't have to depend on any other tool for doing the load balancing of the incoming requests as that is also taken care inside the WebSphere DataPower Gateway box itself, thereby distributing the load equally.
  • It has made our platform much more secure, uniform and robust to deal with any kind of incoming message format or threat as well due to its latest security mechanisms and huge processing power.
