Pros
Oracle
  • 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
Oracle
  • 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.

Return on Investment
Oracle
  • 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.
