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.

Oracle API Manager

Oracle API Manager is well suited in a business or company that make use of Apis to facilitate access of backend services and data sources by the staff or customers or both. It is also imported in situations where all actions in a system need to be attributed to specific users.

Pros

Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

  • SOAP to Rest / Rest to SOAP web services transformation.
  • Secure authorization and authetication (JWT, OpenIP Connect, OAuth, SAML and more). WASP Features as injection protection.
  • Easy rule writing without coding.

Oracle API Manager

  • API Manager allows for REST and SOAP API's to be easily created and tracked
  • API Manager allows for only certain people/applications to use the API (does this thru a subscriber service it provides)
  • It also publishes the API's it is tracking so developers can easily know what interfaces already exist.
  • The monitoring ability is a nice feature. The admin person can easily see how and where the APIs are currently being used

Cons

Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

  • It would be nice to have an integration with services like Github for managing projects and versions.
Leonardo Villa | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle API Manager

  • Absence of Role-Based Access. A finer grain control on what type of users can call certain API Endpoints is needed.
  • Performance with third-party databases isn't as fast as using Oracle Database.
  • Long learning curve. Although Oracle API Manager provides performance and a vast deal of features, a certain level of expertise is required to effectively make use of them.

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

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

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.
Leonardo Villa | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle API Manager

Oracle API Manager works well for our team since a majority of the products we use are Oracle based. Our backend jobs and servers all run with PL/SQL and Oracle databases. This makes the Oracle API Manager tool the best suited for our needs as a department. Anypoint API Manager may be more suited for teams with a Salesforce based infrastructure

Return on Investment

Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

  • Very fast implementation and is easy to learn & use.
Leonardo Villa | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle API Manager

  • Oracle API Manager supports both REST & SOAP API's.
  • Secure and attributable connection to back-end services and data sources. In addition to creating API's for querying data, you can also create API endpoints that can manipulate the data in the back-end databases.
  • Although Oracle API Manager provides performance and a vast deal of features, to start with it is really important you train your people working on development, deployment and administrators to effectively use Oracle API Manager.
