For large organizations that are considering opening APIs to third-party developers, creating a strong foundation for developer management is absolutely critical. Effective developer management can make all the difference by helping enterprises to:

  • Minimize costs associated with API publishing and management
  • Maximize adoption of APIs
  • Maximize the value APIs return to the enterprise

The Layer 7 API Portal acts as the developer’s primary interface with the enterprise’s open APIs. In fact, it is designed to become the nexus for all development activity around those APIs. The API Portal is where developers:

  • Discover what APIs are available and register for access
  • Learn how to use APIs via documentation and online exploration tools
  • Track API health and their own API usage
