In the modern digital age, APIs power our businesses…

It’s no secret that websites and applications are growing in complexity. And to keep up organizations are making radical changes in the way they build and deliver software. More than ever today’s apps are increasingly dependent on external APIs and third party app providers.

While this type of modularity allows for generous product flexibility and rapid development, it can be difficult to identify and  address speed and performance issues caused by API failures.

If your product relies on external APIs, it’s important for you to monitor for more than just availability. You will also need to keep tabs on performance, data validation and processes, feature changes, and security.

In this paper we’ll cover:

  • Describe and outline how businesses are using APIs
  • Explain the value of API monitoring
  • Explore best practices for API monitoring
  • Provide guidance to get you started on crafting a solid API monitoring strategy
