Technology companies building modern software have become increasingly dependent on APIs for creating efficiencies in the software development process. From a business perspective, APIs also enable these same organizations to monetize their data, cultivate partnerships, and unlock innovation.
As a result, APIs have proliferated across the organization both in number and in type from REST to GraphQL. In a technology company where APIs have become essential for moving the business forward, a new platform is needed for the company to manage both internal API usage and adoption and for exposing them to third-party partners and customers.
Rapid’s API Hub for Enterprise sits in front of an API gateway and works with other API management systems, systems, and API gateways, and provides a platform for finding, connecting to, managing, and monetizing APIs across diverse, multi-cloud environments.
API Hub for Enterprise is designed to address the needs of modern-day APIs. API Hub for Enterprise is a white-labeled, internal API marketplace used by developers, analysts, and product managers to discover and connect to internal APIs, as well as external API subscriptions. Additionally, companies can use the same API Hub for Enterprise as an external marketplace, enabling customers and partners to also find and connect to your APIs.
API Hub for Enterprise:
As development teams grow and split into multiple teams, they form “software silos” with each group responsible for a specific product or technology. An API hub provides a centralized location for the various development teams to find, manage, and connect to all APIs — using a single key and SDK. An API hub provides developers with an integrated experience, enabling organizations to create new efficiencies and accelerate the software delivery cycle.
Companies can offer third-parties access to key APIs using API Hub for Enterprise. Through the branded API hub, developers can collaborate with developers from other companies to create unique solutions and efficiencies. Using API Hub for Enterprise, developers can work together to provide joint customers with more innovative and personalized services that enhance customer satisfaction.
