Ecosystems and hybrid integration
API portals give APIs a home whether you’re only looking for internal users to reach them. Since APIs are the medium to build great experiences, the portal design, when set to inspire, models great experiences for those consuming them. Offering tangible shop windows and welcome signs to business users and anyone looking at your API to decide if its right for them encourages adoption. A welcome community, then is the key to a healthy and thriving API ecosystem, especially if you’re looking to attract platform adoption. We see this adoption shift enterprise software through the interaction of open source communities who not only monetized their inventions but also created a great place for technology to live.
How Open Source Is Democratizing Technology
The theme of #BetterTogether holds strong with Axway this year. This was the theme behind this year’s internal kickoffs as well as our big IMAGINE SUMMIT customer events.
