We use it to centralize our API connections, manage connectivity to third-party applications and other internal apps, and thus protect our network. It provides usage analytics and helps us manage the volume of API calls. We can use it across our hybrid cloud deployment and manage API connectivity from one place.
  • Robust security and authentication.
  • Integration and API management.
  • Usage Analytics.
  • Monitoring and debugging issues.
  • Pricing
  • Initial setup and learning curve.
  • Managing software updates and resources required to run.
IBM Connect is well suited for enterprises with enhanced security requirements and compliance monitoring for access. In our financial domain, we can centralize connectivity and monitoring and thus reduce our workload. It works great across our hybrid cloud deployment. However, it may not work that well for smaller firms, as the initial setup and maintenance costs may outweigh the benefits of using a central tool.

In our business application we are building APIs that help our customers create web applications and dashboards.

The APIs have a lot of business logic into it, we create a sort of "middleware" between multiple companies that are working together. We are in charge of managing performances and access, as well as developing new APIs.
  • Security. I would say creating and applying scopes to each operation is intuitive and clear.
  • Managing multiple path at the same time. Creating new path and operation is straightforward.
  • The analytics tab is good to see what APIs have trouble with errors
  • The documentation is really frustrating. It does not cover enough functionalities with examples.
  • A whole 100 pages long documentation should be available on gateway scripts.
  • Each component is viewed individually, there is so much need for documentation on common pattern designs and how to implement them ourselves.
  • When you are modifying an API and using the test tab, it can takes a lot of time for the actual change to be updated.
  • Please put a simple check to make us know if the latest change was taken in account. It sometimes can take up to 30 seconds, which is WAY to long when you are putting 4 hours straight of developing and making change every 20 seconds.
  • 500 internal errors are killing me. Please find a way to handle javascript errors
  • Too few policies available. Nothing to handle arrays of jsons.
  • More videos. Youtube is full of "why API Connect is useful" but nothing is on actual API Creation. Is it lame, too much goes into marketing and nothing is left for actual users.
  • IBM have way too many tools and name. When we are using google to search for one of your product we fall on the wrong documentation most of the time.
  • Why writing "IBM API Connect" leads me to 3 different products ??

We use IBM API Connect to complete our architecture and provide security, controll and goverment to our APIs. Thanks to the tool, we managed to reduce the integration time from 1 month to 1 week. We ran into some complications regarding the update of the tool, nevertheless, we could expose our bussiness logic through a single point. We have now visibility of the analitycs regarding the consumption and use of our platforms and provides us usefull information for decision making. It has his learning curve and I recommend complementing the development with a, API First approach and an efficient catalog/product management. I recommend choosing the cloud option, because the problems that we ran into, were because of our on premise deployment of the tool. Another problem that we face, is the replication of the changes in the datapower, but we managed to solve them with the update of the tool and a better management of the products an our APIs.
  • Security to APIs
  • Analytics to the consumption of the APIs
  • Interactive and low code environment
  • Importing definitions quickly
  • Better update experience
  • Replications of the changes to the datapower
  • Better way to deploy an API, the need for creating products, catalogs, organizations, etc. All that the API needs to deploy is difficult to understand and find
The tool is better suited for not On Premmise Solutions. If you want to deploy APIs faster and provide security and all the basics, is great for that

The tool has his areas of opportunity on the on-premmise field

We have used IBM API Connect for API Management, it solves the Secure API management problems that we are exposing outside of the organization. we are planning to use the API monetization feature of IBM API Connect.
  • API life cycle Management
  • API monetization
  • API Analytics
  • Synchronization of data between multiple deployments
  • API Testing & Monitoring
  • More flexible robust transformations are missing
  • Connectors other than HTTP are missing
IBM API Connect enables our organization to create APIs to expose to the domain customers and self-service access for developers while providing built-in security and governance. One of our plans is to monetize the selected APIs through IBM API Connect.

Excellent and very responsive connectivity to multiple data sources and the data processing speed with IBM API Connect is perfect. Through the system, the data security and data quality management are impressive, and the access control options are fantastic. IBM API Connect allows easy dataflow management, and the ability to provide clean and real-time data analysis from different collected data is more effective.
  • Integration functionalities.
  • Big data process tools.
  • Access control options.
  • Data quality control features.
  • The adjustment of some features, especially to new users.
  • Creating valuable data analytics via different data.
  • Processing large projects data.
I love the IBM API Connect features, performance, and security level for all our business data. The workload balancing and integration with other third-party products are very simple. The data migration speed is beneficial, especially for time management, and creating process reports through IBM API Connect is incredible.

Centralized administration from a single interface helps to manage and protect our APIs that exit the network and guarantees that there aren't any issues with any of our APIs. And API automation, API creation and API management are its most useful features that we use in our business. Furthermore it is highly rated among it's competitors due to it's high security features for the APIs which supports multiple types of authentication.
  • High security with multiple types of authentication so no need to worry about security.
  • API creation, automation and management all can be done form a single interface which guarantees security and increases efficiency.
  • Highly rated among it's competitors which proves it has given a good service over the years.
  • One thing that could be improved is that it requires heavy hardware support. So making it less dependent on the hardware could free up the resources.
  • The hardware comes at a high cost which easily cross your budget if you try to scale the business through it.
  • It is quite time consuming and complex to setup and requires a technical person to set it up which again can increase the overall cost.
Its substantial backend integration makes it perfect for API construction, management and automation. Plus this platform excels at multiple types of authentication which makes it very secure and automation and analytics makes it a very efficient tool to use. Lastly the setup process might be a little time consuming and complex but it has shown to be both easy to scale and reliable and efficient as everything can be managed from a single interface.

I head the software Implementation team and our product requires to be integrated with the client's ERP. Every client has different ERP and they want the integration to be either one way or two way. In either of the cases to meet the client's requirement we tend to build the APIs for passing the data to the ERP. IBM API Connect helps us build and ship the APIs in the least amount of time. We also have some already existing APIs and to manage the entire lifecycle of the API we use the IBM software.
  • It supports various API standards like REST, GraphQL, SOAP, etc.
  • Enterprise grade security to safeguard the APIs
  • Predefined test cases to test the APIs via AI
  • The implementation is a bit tedious and complex
  • The product documentation is not user friendly because of which the adoption can take time for somebody who is not familiar with the environment.
  • Analytics module not include in the basic license
It offers a seamless end to end experience when it comes to API management, right from designing, testing, to deployment. In our case we were looking for platform that is scalable and can handle large volume of requests in the least amount of time. It also boasts a large community of developers which made it an obvious choice considering we have a huge clientele base, which involves developments and management from both the ends.

In our case we use it to have security in our APIs and have control or administration of them. IBM API Connect simplifies all the work for us, having functions to discover new services through the developer console. I like your documentation, I think you have what it takes. Its learning curve is stable and easy to understand. This is a platform you can trust, it gives you the security you need to know that your APIs are in good hands. You can also create new APIs seamlessly and something goes wrong, then sending them to your target is easy.
  • Calls by the black-end server are fast.
  • Impeccable security.
  • Good management service.
  • Simple implementation with an excellent learning curve.
  • The update process can be a bit tedious, it is somewhat complicated.
  • The security it provides to the APIs is a determining factor to continue with this software.
  • Constant monitoring of the APIs.
Internal partners have the possibility to subscribe through the portal that it offers to show our APIs and to be able to plan. It also allows us to monitor the consumption of APIs and constantly protect them. IBM API Connect has been used in the organization in general and for some time now where the entire process was one of adaptation and to obtain significant improvements. On the other hand, obtaining analysis is magnificent, with the required details.

Everything is controlled in the organization since we have IBM API Connet, each department is now integrated into this powerful tool to maintain direct access from a single place, without the need to install software in each of the places it comes from each information. The entire system is faithfully and accurately controlled by IBM API Connet; Due to its multiple functions and easy handling through automation, this product is of our complete confidence.
  • Easy and safe to administer.
  • Intuitive platform.
  • API trust.
  • Technical support of category and great prestige.
  • Easy installation.
  • Improving customization is usually a bit difficult to understand at first; Otherwise, this unification platform for all the company's APIs has been essential for development.
  • Some development component enhancements may be required.
We have a high quality tool, excellent if we want to keep all our servers digitized in a unified way and without any problem, through this API mechanism. IBM API Connet has very good functions that make this tool the best option for flexibility and protection of all the company's APIs. It has a powerfully simple installation with an easy execution, taking into account that it is based on the cloud; on the other hand, this product has a high-level technical control, which always responds and helps.

IBM API Connect is convenient and effective since it can manage multiple connections at once and track the API lifetime from a single dashboard. I got an API Gateway, secure authentication, portable development, multi-cloud support, and API customization for my project. I was skeptical about how easy this system would be to use while working for the company that implemented it.
  • Automatization facilitates the rollout of API enhancements.
  • Effective administrative assistance.
  • Simple setup and operation.
  • Continuous, non-intrusive improvements.
  • Updates and fixes aren't always simple to implement.
  • Open up the system to outside influences.
IBM API Connect performs best on a dedicated server. Our flexible cloud-hosted products are managed by IBM Cloud. It works with IBM and other cloud services. We received an endpoint to access the cloud-based backend. Don't want the endpoint to be accessible from the internet? Use an API gateway. IBM's API gateway is a nice solution. If your company has multiple applications of different types and operating, it works great because you can partition them by URI.

I utilize IBM APIC as a central location for managing our APIs, similar to a version control system for typical programming code for websites and/or software. The workflows for IBM APIC have helped in efficiency and removed the complexity of the typical management issues surrounding API management. One of the other benefits I like is the security policies used in IBM APIC.
  • API Management
  • API Security Policies
  • API Workflows
  • Third party product integration
  • Licensing can be 'blue sky' costly for small businesses
  • Upgrades and/or patch fixes aren't always real smooth
In my opinion the thing that sets IBM APIC apart are the workflows and the management of the APIs

We are using IBM API Connect to host multiple integration services, to transform the service payloads from the centralized service to local app level service API. We used to have the JAVA microservices/REST service APIs to do this kind of API translations and operations. That was difficult to manage and migrate them. We use IBM API Connect enterprisewide.
  • Integrations of services and API management.
  • Easy to develop warper API.
  • Handling API traffic.
  • Scalability.
  • Platform management is bit complex.
  • Upgrades are not easy.
  • Backward compatibility.
It offers standard, stable, and secure ways to manage and integrate APIs and services. It is easy to develop flows to customize and translate the other service APIs. Asynchronous API support is not provided; if that is not part of the solution design, this can be considered.

API Connect is the main API gateway instrument we utilize for majority of our APIs. It provides discoverability, security, reuse and scalability we need with our interfaces. While the setup time is a bit high, it offers a consistent pipeline for our services. It allows us to provide the level of authentication and authorization, even in a hybrid environment.
  • Security - well integrated with both AAD, Okta and TDS
  • Reliability - ensures services are scaling well with load balancing
  • Consistency - Allowed for a standardized way to host services across various platforms and tech stacks
  • Steep learning curve - not sure why all IBM docs avoid pictures in their help documentation. Instead, everything is painfully described in words. Use pictures. Use short videos.
  • Templates for repeatable API configurations will help speed up adoption.
While there are competing products (like Mulesoft, Apigee), IBM API Connect offers all the pieces you will need for their lifecycle maintenance.

It is not a good fit for just a handful of API. Leaner solutions are starting to look more attractive in this space (like Kong). It is a bit too much work and expensive compared to competitors.

IBM API Connect is the central, strategic platform of choice to enable cross organisational data sharing and exposure. In a global manufacturing organisation with services and value add offers at the forefront of increasing margins as well as improving efficiency internally, few other platforms are as critical and empowering for the business at this point in time.
  • Versatile deployment options
  • Powerful developer portal
  • Easy to use and get started with
  • Secure and controlled access layer
  • Subscription and consumption based financing model
  • Simple out of the box multicloud deployment
  • Copilot automation features
IBM API Connect is ideally suited for enterprise grade, heavy duty, large scale, high requirement deployments. It has the expected bells and whistles, renowned support, and lots of built-in flexibility to implement the architecture you have in mind.

For smaller, lightweight, standard out of the box, no customization needed-scenarios - it might be a little too much, although solves the task just as efficiently.

IBM API Connect is currently being used as the enterprise API enabler platform.
  • user management with Active Directory
  • In my opinion, hard to use UI. Needs a lot of improvement. Hard restriction to manager is an overkill e.g. fixed window mode, inconsistent behavior to get properties, scrollbars are inappropriate. Please don't invest too much on the UI, let's do an eclipse plugin rather.
  • In my experience, upgrades are not compatible, had lot of challenges with built in policies during upgrade. e.g. IF 1.0.0 and IF 2.0.0
  • Each upgrade is a nightmare!
  • IBM documentation doesn't have how-to-use examples, some basics are available though. it doesn't motivate to use the policies e.g. condition editor
not sure IBM API connect is a competitor among the "0 coding" eco-system.

We are using IBM API Connect across our organization--by multiple teams--as an enterprise platform. IBM API Connect helps us with services/API discovery using the developer portal console. It is used to expose enterprise APIs to third-party vendors and manage their access. We also use it within organization to discover and re-use/share services with other departments.
  • Great and unmatched consumer management features in developer portal; support for setting up consumer teams with multiple developers.
  • Out-of-box support for multiple authentication security mechanisms for API, like OAUTH, MTLS, JWK, etc.
  • Extensive workflow and lifecycle approval customization were best among peers.
  • DataPower, as runtime engine is very robust and high performing.
  • Improve product documentation.
  • Should improve implementation support for enterprise use cases--like support for private cluster implementation.
  • More stable and slow releases for enterprise. Need to have easier migration and upgrade options--especially for customers using old versions like v5.
IBM API Connect is well suited for on-premises installation. We also have flexible cloud-hosted plans managed by IBM Cloud. Flexible options for API Security, consumer organization, easier UI-based API development options, and great workflow for product lifecycle management are unparalleled and would be a great fit for any organization.

IBM API Connect is being used by a few departments. Since we run our backend services in IBM Cloud, we choose IBM API Connect as the API gateway solution. It provides the routing rules, security, and rate limits before the calls can reach our backend services. We also use its analytics feature to get more insights.
  • Enhanced security with client id and client secret features.
  • Easy to deploy API changes through automation.
  • Good UI to manage APIs.
  • Sometimes we see issues after deploying API changes, re-deployment can solve it.
  • A bit hard to troubleshoot issues if the calls do not reach our backend services.
From our experience so far, API Connect is very stable and scalable. It can handle our peak traffic without any issues. It is well suited as an API platform that requires API versioning, rate limiting, authentication, security, automation, analytics, etc. It has both cloud and non-cloud products with different features. You can use it with non-IBM Cloud services.

IBM API connect is the main API gateway we are using cross the entire company. As part of our new cloud architecture, API gateway plays a vital role in the whole micro service architecture. IBM API connect serves as the API gateway that faithfully directs all the traffic from within our company and outside.
  • Extremely reliable
  • Supports swagger
  • Easy to manage
  • Can be a learning curve for beginners
  • API management configuration tool can be simplified more
  • UI can be improved more
We are using micro service architecture where each function is carried by a RESTful API. We deploy the backend to the cloud and got endpoint of the backend. We do not want to open the endpoint to the public and that is where API gateway comes to play. IBM API gateway is a great choice for that part.
