The structure of business websites or applications has been transformed into a new model that is fast and responsive. The new model has replaced the traditional monolithic applications with microservices and containerization. The micro-services, along with API, have eliminated the complexity and latency associated with the business services. They have become the foundation for rapidly developing innovative application components to meet new business needs. The approach is referred to as cloud-native application development. As cloud adoption continues, these applications have become more light and powerful. When you use an API, you want to ensure that it is well-documented and reliable, but besides that, you need a dashboard for analytics, a gateway that acts as a proxy, high availability, etc. This is where you need API management. What is API management ? API management is a process for controlling, distributing, and analyzing the APIs that connect applications and data across the enterprise and across clouds. Organizations are implementing strategies to manage their APIs so they can respond to rapid changes in customer demands. The API management is mainly about centralizing control of your API program—including analytics, monetization, access control, and developer workflows.

Through an API management solution, an organization can ensure that both the public and internal APIs they create are consumable and secure. Security is a critical aspect for companies when they expose their backend systems via APIs. APIs require strong documentation, comprehensive testing, increased levels of security, routine versioning, and high reliability. If an API is evoked multiple times for data retrieval, it is not possible to verify data requests on an individual basis. It may cause unnecessary queuing up of your requests.

What is API management ?

API management is a process for controlling, distributing, and analyzing the APIs that connect applications and data across the enterprise and across clouds. Organizations are implementing strategies to manage their APIs so they can respond to rapid changes in customer demands.

The API management is mainly about centralizing control of your API program—including analytics, monetization, access control, and developer workflows.

The API management services come with a lot of features. T

  • The primary purpose of API management is to make designing, deploying, and managing an API easier, as well as to ensure that it is safe, secure, and functional.
  • When two or more APIs are talking to each other, there will be inconsistency in terms of data-sets and restrictions. For consistent data exchange, you need API management.
  • Through an API management solution, an organization can ensure that both the public and internal APIs they create are consumable and secure.
  • Security is a critical aspect for companies when they expose their backend systems via APIs. APIs require strong documentation, comprehensive testing, increased levels of security, routine versioning, and high reliability.
  • If an API is evoked multiple times for data retrieval, it is not possible to verify data requests on an individual basis. It may cause unnecessary queuing up of your requests. By using an automated gateway with conditional authority, this issue can be mitigated.
