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.

webMethods Trading Network is efficient for multiple partner onboarding and maintenance. Document tracking is one great feature. Resubmission of documents with data modifications is very helpful.

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.
