The UI is not nearly as intuitive as many of its competitors in the iPaaS space, which lead to larger learning curve. The GUI should be improved. The development and transformation capability is not so great. I believe IBM is looking to incorporate some of the features of IBM App Connect into API connect. The authentication features are no way close to CA API Management. The cost is high which is not feasible for small projects but the cost paid would be worth every penny.
I would recommend IBM App Connect for organizations that share data from various systems within an organization or to the clients or child companies. It's easy, fast and secure. The cost is high but its worth the price for the features and support it provides.
We use IBM App Connect for large projects or when the projects require data to be combined into single format and source.IBM App Connect enables us to perform the integrations with ease thereby increasing the overall productivity. Since we share business APIs with other clients and merged companies it provides an easy integration platform for running and managing APIs in a secure manner. In all the IBM App Connect aids us with both in handling the large data and track data all while maintaining security
