What do you like best?

It is powerful and easy to use. I do like how it offers developer management, automation capabilities and analytics that are accurate. Further, the API Proxies that enable you to route, transform and secure traffic through the API gateway are one of my best features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The pricing is a bit too high especially when starting out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is the go to product if you are looking for API security, rate limiting requests, quotas and analytics to your API development. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Apigee Edge has helped us to get analytics on our API requests and rate limit API requests. This has seen us drop requests that we don't want and also helped us in decision making on what to concentrate on from the analytics we get concerning API requests. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

From the security point of view, this tool allows us to secure the APIs via TLS and also OAuth.

It is very effective in handling Requests and Responses - Users can easily modify responses and adjust them as per needs of the cases without changing any back-end service which is very helpful and time saving.

One of the most likable feature is Load Balancing which easily allows user to target separate server end-points, even on a different and multiple deployment or environment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Though there less things for now that i can think but they can add Intellisense support which will make coders job easy if any issue is encountered.

Also, the documentation needs to be more detailed with more FAQs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Perect for secure APIs for implementing OAuth authentication

Good to balance load for many servers and simultaneously keep servers connected and up and running

As creation of the apps are an easy process, it becomes very secure for credentials for partners involved. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

For any major project, it becomes vital to not only control the flow of imports and introduce functionalities but also set a restraint with quotas and ultimately be able to do analytics. This is where Apigee Edge wins the game! As it provides a proxy to do all this, you need not provision the aforementioned assets yourself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I still think that it maybe vulnerable to malicious client web apps which do not have an admin sdk provisioning. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes api management (proxy) easy because of its easy integration with Cloud based web apps. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the way Apigee Edge handles the creation and editing of API proxies. The mechanisms they use for tracing traffic through those proxies is clear and understandable to most people who already know how to run a website.

I like the mechanisms that Apigee provides to throttle APIs (SpikeArrest) and respond with the same results to multiple queries for the same information (Caching) when the same response is appropriate.

I think most of the User Interface is as visual as it can be. There are certain aspects of the features that require a few lines of code, but their transaction maps are diagrams. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The some of the API Analytics charts look too much like Google Analytics for my taste. Without training from Apigee, I can see that some devops people would gloss over the information that Apigee's API Analytics provides. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get a full hands-on demo of the platform and let your developers and devops people work through some of the examples that Apigee has created to illustrate the tent pole features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am migrating a legacy LAMP stack application to Apigee Edge and Apigee's implementation of Usergrid (which Apigee calls API BaaS). The SpikeArrest and caching functions of Edge would take person-years to develop independently, so these features are absolutely worth the fees that customers pay to use the service.
