The definitive guide to API management ebook

Customers today want to engage with companies on a variety of devices and channels. This expectation is driving enterprise IT organizations to move toward more efficient, agile development frameworks to more quickly deliver a diverse mix of connected experiences. Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are the foundation on which the digital economy is built. APIs enable a business to securely expose content or services, both inside and outside the enterprise. APIs are not new, but with the explosion of apps and experiences required in the digital world, and new customer-centric IT organizations, companies across industries need better solutions now more than ever to manage their APIs and API-driven businesses. 

API Management is the set of processes that enables a business to have control over and visibility into the APIs that connect applications and data across the enterprise and across clouds. API management solutions generally include the following capabilities to help a business make the most out of their API program: a developer portal, an API gateway, API lifecycle management, analytics capabilities and support for API monetization. 

API management capabilities are delivered in the cloud as a SaaS (Software as a Service) solution, or on-premises in a private cloud, or sometimes using a hybrid cloud approach. 

The ebook “The Definitive Guide to API Management” examines all the features of the API management platform for digital business, from designing and publishing APIs for developers to API traffic management, security, and analytics. It also covers different consumption models and how to monetize APIs.
