API management

APIs continue to be one of the biggest parts of effective application and architecture management. Proper API management involves a combination of proper design considerations, testing techniques, documentation and secure processing. In this section, we take a hard look at top-of-mind API management concerns, as well as both standardized and emerging API protocols.
