San Diego, CA., September 13th — Apiboost, an enterprise API portal SaaS platform, has been named as a Marketplace Specialist Offerings by Gartner, in their report titled, “Quick Answer: How Can Existing Applications Participate In Composable Architecture?”*
As an emerging trend in software architecture, composability continues to grow in relevance for both new and future business applications. According to Gartner, “software engineering leaders can expand the scope of their composable experience, or prepare for it, by leveraging the APIs, data and features of existing applications.”*
For applications to achieve composability, they must utilize technology that facilitates composition. And the most critical element of any composable application environment is an API marketplace.
“Early API registrations may center on just the security, access and discovery of the APIs, but more advanced marketplaces will support certification, vetting, optimization, tracking and automation as well,” said Yefim Natis, Distinguished VP Analyst and Shameen Pillai, Sr Director Analyst at Gartner.
Apiboost’s enterprise-grade API portal enables brands to build portals that drive collaboration, innovation, and revenue.
“We’re very encouraged to see Gartner emphasize the importance of API Portals and marketplaces in their continued guidance in the digital transformation journey,” said Ron Huber, Founder of Apiboost. “We see API productization as the key factor for these composable applications. The ability to group multiple APIs and assign them to internal and external teams is at the heart of a modern API Portal,” he added.
