Apiboost was listed under multiple sections in the report
San Diego, CA., August 30th — Apiboost, an enterprise API portal SaaS platform, has been identified by Gartner as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for APIs and Business Ecosystems 2021. Apiboost is mentioned under the API Marketplaces and API Developer Portals in Banking categories.
Gartner Hype Cycle reports offer insights into the relative maturity of technologies operating within specific industries.
Apiboost’s inclusion as a new entrant to the report this year shows that Gartner’s analysts are assigning a higher value to the importance of APIs and API Marketplace across multiple industries.
Listing Apiboost as a Sample Vendor underscores the value of the Apiboost platform and the impact of API Marketplaces and Developer Portals across several business ecosystems. As Gartner explains, “the API developer portal is a foundational technology and a prerequisite for API marketplaces that support the pursuit of higher-order business models such as banking as a service.”
“We’re proud that Gartner has recognized Apiboost as an API marketplace and API developer portal solution. The report touched on several trends driving the API economy forward, and the need for organizations to leverage impactful API portal and API marketplace solutions,” said Ron Huber, Founder of Apiboost.
Portals Promote Awareness and Increase Ease of Use
“API developer portals provide an advanced approach to connect and manage APIs of partner solutions,” said Don Free, VP Analyst at Gartner in the report. “APl developer portals promote and optimize API consumption and performance through both functional and technical documentation and tools,” he added.
One of Apiboost’s core features is the Product Optimizer, which allows the productization of APIs and any content associated with them. Not only does this enable products and content on the developer portals to be controlled at a Product Owner level, it also means that organizations can manage content associated with products, from the description in the catalog, to blogs, videos, events and forums.
“Transparency and self-service access are increasingly important characteristics for successful API development and usability,” Free added.
Team Builder is another Apiboost feature, enabling administrators to build teams and gather team members to innovate on applications and products in a group. This robust tool is ideal for assigning apps and products to departments, partners, and customers for effective development while securely exposing data to approved team members.
