Recently, INOVIS, a strategic intelligence and research firm, published a new report on Five Factors to Consider When Selecting an API Management Provider. I’d like to share more about these five factors, and why they are important when evaluating an API Management solution. The five factors for evaluation include:
- Ease of use
Let’s take a deeper dive into each of these.
1. Ease of use
At first glance, “ease of use” would be about how easy it is to get up and running – and yes, that’s relatively important. However, there are other issues that are tied to this factor. For instance, is it easy for a developer to utilise – to discover APIs, to see the value of those APIs, to learn how to use those APIs, and perhaps, even, get code generated for the development tools he or she is utilising? Is it easy for an administrator to manage those developers?
