Overall Satisfaction with IBM API Connect

API connect is used as a BaaS platform where we have hosted banking API’s for our customers & partners to subscribe. The Portal provided as a base product is used for showcasing our API products, plan and allow customers / partners to subscribe them. Datapower is used as a gateway for all external communication right now. We are now looking to use it for internal communication too
  • API Connect as a platform is very advanced and allow you to create APIs, and host them on the portal seamlessly
  • Datapower is a very powerful gateway which takes care of all the infosec. Very stable product
  • The release management is also super easy, and graduating code from Dev to test and then to prod is well versioned
  • Currently they use 2 portals one for Test and one for Prod. They should merge them now
  • We wanted some relation between SSL & the application / organisation created in API connect. I believe it’s now part of API connect V6
  • The product helped us ensure our API’s are secured, helped us to build trust with our customers and partners
  • The TAT to doing integration using traditional methods like VPN etc has improved cos of API Connect by 80%
  • The cost of maintenance of the product is way lower than any other tech product we are using.
We selected API connect as both tools have more or less same features, the differentiation was we also use IIB, and seamless integration with IIB was the major factor
IBM API connect has made good progress over the last 3 years; it has a strong support team and now trained resources are available. Don’t think there is any drawbacks as of now
