Enterprise API Management Platform
by Aqeel Butt and Naresh Patel of Optimoz, Inc.

An API (Application Programming Interface) is a set of functions that allow the sharing of data between independently run applications. Over the past 24 months, more enterprises have begun to modernize their applications by adopting Microservices and API first strategy. Companies can quickly end up with hundreds or thousands of APIs embedded in their applications. With this, it has become essential to have an enterprise grade API management platform, not just to host their APIs but also control the exposure and consumption of those APIs. With the increase of public APIs in the market, how can we leverage an API management platform to handle the complexity of governance for multiple consumers?
