Overall Satisfaction with Azure API Management

We use it for letting teams access synchronous services and microservices both for internal and external network users. It's extremely simple to make an API available. We can build infrastructure and APIs using Terraform.
  • Easy commissioning of APIs.
  • Great policies to control access.
  • Easy mock services for testing.
  • We cannot automate the network infrastructure easily. At least we had issues with creating end to end APIM using Terraform.
  • We have one-stop access to all services.
  • We can stop DDoS, Man in the middle attack, etc.
Apigee is by Google and seems to be promising. The cost seems high though. With Azure, we do not have to make any special purchases. CapEx vs OpEx! But, Apigee could be more environment independent compared to Azure APIM. The promise of speed by Apigee is also better compared to Kong on Azure APIM.

Do you think Azure API Management delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Azure API Management's feature set?


Did Azure API Management live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Azure API Management go as expected?


Would you buy Azure API Management again?


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.
