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.

WSO2 API Manager

For smaller organizations, I think this is would be a good tool. For large enterprise organizations, WS02 API Manager is likely not the best fit.

Pros

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

  • Management of users and permissions

Cons

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.

  • Better QA testing prior to releases rollout
  • Better support needed

Alternatives Considered

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

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.
