SUMMARY

This 2019 State of API Report found that only a very low percentage of companies are developing APIs only.

The paper takes a look at how the API sector has evolved for the last three years and the elements that will help its growth shortly. It also offers advice for companies to identify opportunities in their API development processes.

According to the study, API professionals prefer tools that are easy to use, can be adopted in a fast manner, and that can fit into their current toolset. Besides, open API Specification adoption continues to grow as more companies follow a “design- first” approach, the document notes.

Another of the report's findings is that higher investment in API documentation can help software providers offer an improved developer experience. On the other hand, the majority of organizations nowadays have in place an API testing strategy. Finally, companies that have API monitoring as their main priority are hugely outperforming compared to the rest of organizations.
