What are the advantages of WSO2 API Management?

As detailed in the report, WSO2: “showed pockets of strength across most of our evaluation categories. Specifically, it has a flexible and configurable API user portal, a strong start going beyond REST APIs, good investments in combined API-microservices strategy (including important thought leadership on how the two relate), and strong product architecture and deployment options.”

In addition to the above, from Chakray we highlight the following advantages: 

  • Unlike any other API management systems out there, WSO2 API manager provides components to cover a variety of API Service patterns. Whether it is a legacy, monolithic service or a modern microservice based service, WSO2 API Manager has the capability to seamlessly integrate and expose as APIs.
  • WSO2 API Manager is infrastructure agnostic. It can be deployed in bare-metal servers in an on-premise environment or as a cloud workload. The components in it come with different flavours of deployments including container-friendly, readily available Kubernetes artefacts.
  • WSO2 API Manager is 100% open source. Although the product is sold under a commercial license, the ability to extend and add custom capabilities is automatically granted with Apache 2.0 Open Source License. As the entire source code is available in Github, this would give a great opportunity to technologists to understand and customise solutions for their organizations once the product is purchased.

What must API Management customers look for?

In the report, Forrester Research Inc. recommends that API Management customers must look for vendors/providers that

  • Align with their API strategy.
  • Support their governance and API user engagement needs.
  • Support cohesive API design processes.
