Its a very good tool for beginners to learn how to create and manage API

2017-06-20

Pros

Starting with development to testing your APIs and monitoring through real time graphical representation.

Cons

Sometimes i believe its very unstable just because some connectors are not compatible with the version which it interacts with various different components.

Daniel Trabas

A complete ESB/iPaaS

2016-11-21

You can connect with a great number of Internet service providers (through APIs). The UI in the first steps could be complex, but, for this reason, is a great UI that has controlled all aspects of the development.

Pros

Error-handle processing, deep code programming (directly on the XML), Python, Java and other code separated into the transformations, complete IU for developing, connection with versioning solutions

Cons

Prcesses monitoring, task schedule

Anypoint platform is centralized manager for everything. I loved the way it simply organized all.

2017-08-08

Able to convert existing xml/json formatted data to desired formats quickly without any issues.

Pros

Simple, centralized, end to end web platform. Runtime manager, insights, logs, alerts, policies at single place. Only Flow designer is missing. Although it is included in latest version 4.0, should have come before.

Cons

Reporting of flow analytics should be more in depth. API designer doesn't provide all the features of comparitive tools like swagger.

Complete integration made simple

2016-07-12

Integrating existing systems (including GeoSpatial systems, SAP, Microsoft Dynamics CRM and the like), providing new and more efficient methods with which data and users can be introduced through effective API design and providing the capability to expose these systems to the outside world with a hybrid-cloud approach - all with negligible impact on day to day business and without the need for a huge team and the complexities of many other players in this space.

Pros

Ease of use, easy to learn, quality and range of out of the box connectors, overall completeness of the solution.

Cons

Sometimes the Anypoint Studio IDE can be frustrating and it does have some bugs - although these are usually very quick to be resolved once reported.
