RapidAPI Enterprise Hub

Accelerate innovation and bring software to market faster with the next-generation API platform

Building for the Next-Generation of APIs

APIs are at the heart of digital innovation. But many organizations struggle to use APIs effectively today.

A key challenge is knowing what APIs exist across the organization, due to organizational silos and disparate infrastructure and tooling across the API development lifecycle. There is also a growing number of API protocols in use today from REST and SOAP — to newer architectural styles that are growing rapidly such as GraphQL, Kafka, and gRPC. APIs also span several categories, with internal, partner, and third-party APIs each bringing different requirements.

Legacy API management vendors do not address modern API requirements and lock organizations into their technology, restricting expansion and growth. Meeting the needs of today’s diverse API landscape requires a next-generation API platform – RapidAPI Enterprise Hub.

Get to Market Faster with RapidAPI Enterprise Hub

RapidAPI Enterprise Hub is the next-generation API platform that enables enterprises to accelerate innovation and bring software to market faster with one place to find, govern, and collaborate on all APIs. RapidAPI is the world’s leading API platform and is used by millions of developers to build, consume, and govern tens of thousands of APIs.

RapidAPI Enterprise Hub enables you to:

  • Centrally expose all APIs in your organization for consumption and collaboration
  • Unify visibility and control across all APIs in the organization
  • Connect disparate API infrastructure including multiple API gateways and/or management systems
  • Create a single platform for all API categories – internal APIs, partner APIs, and third-party APIs
  • Support any API type including REST, SOAP, GraphQL, Kafka, and more
  • Deliver a single, connected experience to build, consume, manage, and monetize APIs using RapidAPI Studio as part of RapidAPI Enterprise Hub

Use Case: Internal API Hub

RapidAPI Enterprise Hub provides a customizable API hub where development teams can leverage RapidAPI Studio to discover and collaborate on hundreds of APIs – both internal APIs and third-party APIs. With RapidAPI integration with RapidAPI Enterprise Hub, developers have a seamless experience from API development to publishing, enabling organizations to increase developer efficiency. 

RapidAPI Enterprise Hub enables you to:

  • Offer an internal API hub and optimized developer experience for collaboration on internal APIs and third-party API subscriptions
  • Deliver governance capabilities that enable you to monitor and manage API consumption with enhanced visibility and control
  • Create a single platform for all APIs – any API type, any API category, and across any API infrastructure including multiple API gateways

Use Case: Partner API Hub

RapidAPI Enterprise Hub enables organizations to share and collaborate on APIs with partners and manage access control. Partner API hubs can be customized to match organizations’ brand requirements, and governed to set permissions at the partner, team, and developer level. RapidAPI is the world’s largest API platform, and RapidAPI Enterprise Hub offers a leading experience for API consumers that improves partner developer efficiency and accelerates partner onboarding times.

RapidAPI Enterprise Hub enables you to:

  • Offer a partner API hub for sharing and collaborating on APIs with partners
  • Granularly control partner access to APIs to ensure data privacy and security
  • Empower partner developers with tools to monitor and analyze their API usage

Create a Single Platform for All APIs

API environments have evolved and become more complex and diverse than ever. RapidAPI Enterprise Hub is a next-generation API platform built to address the requirements of modern software development. RapidAPI Enterprise Hub provides organizations with a single place for all APIs, including any API type, any API category, and across any API infrastructure.

Using a variety of API types such as REST and SOAP in addition to emerging protocols like GraphQL and Kafka helps break down coding and development silos. Supporting internal APIs as well as partner and third-party APIs expands the impact of the platform. And creating an abstraction layer above multiple API gateways unifies visibility and control across all APIs.

RapidAPI can programmatically communicate with all your API gateways, enabling you to centrally catalog, analyze, and provision all your organization’s APIs. After creating an integration service to communicate with your gateways’ admin APIs, RapidAPI can pull updates into the hub via the Platform API, and push updates to the integration service via Events (webhooks).
