50 Best Companies to Watch 2021
APIs have become essential tools for building software – proliferating across the organization and growing from hundreds to thousands. As development teams increasingly use more APIs, they are exploring new API types such as GraphQL, Kafka, and more. Compounding this challenge is that most companies have services running on heterogeneous environments with multiple gateways and hybrid and multi-cloud scenarios.
RapidAPI, the world’s largest API Hub where over 3 million developers find and connect to thousands of public APIs meets this need with a next-generation platform that integrates with any API environment. It was made by developers for developers so they could have one place to access APIs and Microservices and build applications more efficiently and easily. The company helps developers discover and connect to thousands of public APIs, covering everything from file storage and currency conversion to flight search and statistics. Organizations can use RapidAPI Enterprise to create a centralized hub environment to help developers reuse and connect to existing APIs faster while providing IT with enterprise-wide visibility and governance of API consumption.
Cutting-Edge API Products Offered
RapidAPI Hub: There are thousands of APIs out there that do things like store files, enrich data, and send messages. Because each API has its own structure, data format, and networking protocols, finding and connecting to the right one can be difficult and time-consuming. RapidAPI is the world’s largest API hub with over 3 million developers accessing more than 30,000 APIs. RapidAPI makes it easy to connect to REST, SOAP, GraphQL, or Asynchronous APIs. For each API you’ll see performance metrics like average latency, uptime, and popularity. You can test API requests from your browser. Users can Monitor API performance by visualizing how many requests are made to different APIs, tracking the number of requests that return an error and viewing latency data for each API.
RapidAPI Testing: RapidAPI Testing is a functional API testing and monitoring solution that provides an intuitive UX, support for any API type, and integration with the RapidAPI Marketplace and Enterprise Hub. RapidAPI Testing enables users and enterprises to easily create intricate functional tests for deep validation of APIs, monitor and manage API tests across multiple geographies, and integrate to the CI/CD pipeline, collaborate across teams, and natively integrate with the RapidAPI Marketplace and Enterprise Hub.
