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.

Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

Well suited for publishing internal services with very high security, protecting against attacks, and managing on-demand load. Also good for transform messages and SQL to Rest services.Not appropriate for business logic implementation.

The Layer7 API Management is a great solution, but, sometimes the documentation is not clear or has lack of examples.

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.

The support team is good and the response time is reasonable, but (there is always a but), when support inquiries are made by someone experienced, and the question is not trivial, it is boring and takes a long time to get the case escalated to the next level of support.

Alternatives Considered

Dell Boomi API Management

It wasn't my decision.

Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

We evaluated 3 tools and decided on Layer7 API Management because it had the shortest implementation times and fastest learning curve, without losing power of customization and scalability.

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.

Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

  • Very fast implementation and is easy to learn & use.
