APIM is useful for the standard scenarios:

1) Securing your back-end APIs - If you have a legacy back-end web service that has a basic authentication scheme, you can add some additional security by placing APIM in front, and requiring subscription keys. Leverage your existing firewall to ensure only your APIM instance can communicate with your back-end API, and you've basically added a layer of protection.

2) Lift and shift - there are always going to be clients that don't want to update their clients to use a newer API; in some cases you can make a newer API look like an older one by implementing some complex policies in APIM. You can also do the opposite, making older APIs look new, such as making an XML back-end accept both JSON and XML.

3) Centralizing your APIs - if you've acquired another company and want to make their API set look as if it's a part of the larger whole, APIM is an easy way to provide a consistent front-end interface for developers.

Wherever we want to maintain the security of the API and the ingredient data is very confidential, we must use this service. Also, if we would like to manage a large number of API at one go, we must use it. However, for few general APIs, we can avoid the Azure API Management use due to the overall cost strategy.

The range of policies that enable the APIs to loosely couple it with security, rate limit, retry, etc. are good. We can easily tie authentication mechanisms to external and other internal services without having to modify the backend.

If you are an Azure Cloud shop, or are moving in that direction, this is a great tool to start using. You can try with a few small APIs; we began with building some internal APIs that allow us to connect some of our SQL DBs to the Azure Maps service, and we had great luck and things have been running smoothly for six months now. We are expanding the use internally and looking to expand further to external partners as well.
