API standards and schemas have helped to automate much of API design, implementation and maintenance -- and not a moment too soon. As many tech companies experienced growth spurts in the past year, they ended up with multiple teams working on new products and new APIs. Consequently, they learned that their ways to create well-designed APIs wouldn't work so easily when multiple teams have to create them.

Thanks to new solutions (centralized around a good API gateway), growing companies can establish a scalable system for designing, implementing and launching consistent APIs across many teams. We’ll share best practices and solutions from experiences with enterprises in this phase to understand how to be effective working across Product, Infrastructure and Engineering teams to do so.
