Overall Satisfaction with TIBCO Cloud Mashery

Mashery acts as our API Gateway in our digital transformation program. Currently, it's being used as a pilot to serve internal API consumers, but soon it will be extended to be used IN the whole organization.

The API Gateway helps us to decrease the time required for API consumer/clients onboarding and applying different QoS and security options per client/consumers.
  • On-premise implementation. Due to regulation policy, we need to deploy an API Gateway on our data center. Mashery supports the preferred deployment through the use of Mashery local. Mashery local integrates seamlessly with the Mashery configuration portal on the cloud.
  • Built-in API packaging and offering through API plan and package
  • Support several API security options, which can be configured per API basis.
  • The analytics and monitoring dashboard of Mashery is not good. We currently implement a proper dashboard outside the Mashery solution, by getting a raw access log from Mashery and process it on our own.
  • No built-in support JWT token API security
  • The documentation of Mashery in the portal are not easy to learn, and sometimes are not being updated.
  • Faster time to onboard for every API consumer/client
  • Simplify API security implementation
TIBCO professional services that help to deploy the Mashery in our environment are very good and supportive. But please be aware that the TIBCO professional service team is "time and material" basis, so make sure you plan ahead very carefully prior to executing your project.

I'm also not too happy with the technical support team (ticket based), their response is slower compared to other TIBCO product technical support.
It's very important. Our regulation forces us to have on-premise deployment and thankfully Mashery supports that. We also have containerized deployment of Mashery local using Docker to simplify deployment
Mashery is well suited if you require an on-premise implementation of an API Gateway. Mashery also supports containerized (e.g Docker) implementation of Mashery local in an on-premise environment.
