Developer Portal: A Key Component of a Resilient and Scalable API Management Strategy

By July 16, 2020 No Comments

APIs have become a requirement to build digital businesses successfully. APIs enable companies of different types and sizes to quickly seize digital transformation to serve the needs of an emerging diverse mix of clients with a whole new set of expectations. They are central to the application development process, as well as key to competing in the digital economy.

In this new landscape, digital assets and services that provide value to customers, partners and end users can be a source of revenue. Companies can offer data or services as part of their business model, or they can share revenue with partner companies and developers.

An important component of an API Management Strategy is the creation of a Developer Portal, enabling companies to provide everything that internal and third-party developers need to build solutions effectively and efficiently, creating exponential capabilities.

A Developer Portal enables an API provider to accelerate API adoption, as well as create business value. It also delivers an enhanced developer and community experience that accelerates API adoption, simplifies learning, and increases the business value of APIs. The best Developer Portals provide a complete, self-service developer experience. They enable developers to register their applications, select the APIs and the service levels they need, get secure access, monitor their API usage, and even monetize and participate in revenue sharing with the API provider.

Companies around the world deploy a Developer Portal to provide a community for developers with the resources necessary to learn about the enterprise’s APIs, become a registered developer, and collaborate with peers and with the Company, as well as access metrics regarding their own activity and solutions created in the Portal.
