“Platform businesses reshape industries by dramatically improving the economics of integration and service delivery. You can participate in a platform economy by exposing capabilities via APIs and adopting partners’ platforms. But to lead, digital business leaders must build services that customers and suppliers embed into their operations.” says the ‘Now Tech’ report on API Management Solutions, aimed to help with the selection of vendors, based on enterprises’ API service needs and strategic fit with the provider. Forrester analyzes 22 API Management Providers for this report.
