ReadyAPI and SwaggerHub are a match made in heaven. Being able to so easily import the API directly into ReadyAPI and then being able to generate a test suite from the API is my favorite part of these softwares. We have rather large services so building out the API can take some time

WSO2

It's free! No argument can win a fight with that! And it's the only reason I gave it a 5. If you have no money to spend, and a simple environment you'll have a nice product. But free does come with a price. After 5 years we're still struggling with ports, and analytics (it just won't work without any errors caused by some configuration somewhere). An API Manager should work out of the box. The only configuration expertise that any developer wants to invest in, is the configuration of API's. Not the product itself... Anyone who've seen the training material, just for installing this thing will agree that this is not the way to go. Of all the API Managers out there (we've tried 4), WSO2 is the only one were you need to know how this dragon of a java application works internally. Did I already mention the humongous amount of config files?

    SmartBear

    The only other product we looked at was Postman. But we liked the SwaggerHub UI & the integrations it has with the AWS API gateway. Though Postman has some other great features like the ability to write test cases & execute them, SwaggerUI was more convenient to document & share them.

    WSO2

    Providing better capabilities comparing the overall API lifecycle management, especially the availability of API Integration layer and a strong identity layer of their own which provides an end-to-end API ecosystem that would be advantageous in terms of a large software development initiative.

    Return on Investment

    SmartBear

    • Faster API development lifecycle.
    • Reduced discussion time when building a new vital API endpoint.
    • Complete documentation which makes the new team member onboarding process easier.

    WSO2

    • We've moved away from legacy SOAP services where nobody knew what services was used by who. WSO2 eliminated at least 90% of time spend on any service.
    • Creating API's (or actually creating the API Management layer...) is so simple that new developers can get away with it in no time. Again, real time gainer.
    • Since creating API's is so simple, developers are very fast in adopting a kind of "Domain thinking". In comparison with Azure API Manager: Azure does not demand knowledge of "how" the product works, but it's definitely more difficult to get an API up and running in Azure. And for some reason, azure does not promote clean domain driven architecture. Domain Driven architecture is the greatest time saver strategy possible. And WSO2 fits nicely in there.
