CHOOSING AN API GATEWAY FOR YOUR PLATFORM


Enterprises normally have a technology estate that helps manage the different intra and interconnections – such as with vendors, clients, intranet systems, CRMs, retailers, payment systems and so on. But these different corporate tools may lack coherence and proper support.


This necessitates a strategy that will drive down dependencies on external software and establish APIs that can be moulded and customized to your business needs. When properly managed, your APIs allow for greater internal flexibility while establishing connectivity both internally (marketing, sales, customer service) and externally (apps, websites, platforms to offer the company's own APIs to third parties).


Such a strategy, among other things, requires a robust API gateway as a single point of entry for identity and access management, and throttling.


THE NEED FOR AN API GATEWAY :

An API gateway provides a single, secure point of entry to access all your APIs. It offers a simple, consistent interface for all clients and partners to access your APIs and plays a key role in full lifecycle API management.


Its key functionalities include: •Abstraction and simplification of internal functionality

•Providing an easy and intuitive mechanism to publish and document APIs

•Simplifying external/internal developer on-boarding


•Scalability to securely manage a multitude of APIs

•Rapid prototyping and development •Authentication and authorization through security patterns like TLS, API keys, OAuth, etc.

•Strong analytics and monitoring of APIs
