API management refers to the ability to manage the programming of applications interfaces, in all stages. API management software creates a streamlined environment to monitor the entire lifecycle of an application interface so that developers’ needs are being met in a general sense. More specifically API management software ensures that every aspect of app development, including design and deployment is as simple as possible, as well as safe and secure.
Some of the features you’re likely to encounter with API management software includes a variety of analytical options to gain insights into how people are using your API, engagement opportunities for developers, traffic management tools, and resources to aid in the monetization of an API.
