CA Technologies API Management Customer Testimonial

[Before choosing CA API Management we evaluated], Axway but did not find the investment plan on the product lucrative for a long term roadmap. And Tibco-Mashery but the tool was just a gateway with no ESB features, so although quite smart as the interface, [it was] very feature deprived.
