OPEN TALK: The Importance of API Management Tools
Join on Hopin

This session will cover many different areas where API management can help to create, test, and support various API driven initiatives.

Most modern application architectures involve heavy dependencies on APIs. They have helped us to build applications that span multiple platforms while segregating frontend and backend code, moving away from older paradigms usually seen in dated, 2-tier architectures. By doing so, APIs have enabled the rapid development of some of the world’s most successful applications and companies.

Frameworks and methodologies to build APIs are abundant and with each new addition to the arsenal of API build tools, life gets easier for the developers who create APIs. API initiatives are becoming one of the main disciplines for companies both large and small. With so many APIs being built, we need to think about the role that good API management tools can play in this journey. Here at Tyk, we are absolutely obsessed with this subject! Today we will outline some of the most talked-about benefits of API management platforms including:

Security

Virtual endpoints and mocking

Rate limiting and quotas

Body transformations

Versioning

Analytics and reporting

Monetising APIs

GraphQL capabilities

and more…
