Continuous API Management: Making the Right Decisions in an Evolving Landscape

Mehdi Medjaoui, Erik Wilde, Ronnie Mitra, Mike Amundsen



It takes a lot of work to release an API, but unfortunately, that effort isn’t always rewarded. Over-planning an API before it matures is a wasted investment, while under-planning can lead to disaster. This practical book provides maturity models for APIs and API landscapes to help you invest the right human and company resources for the right maturity level at the right time.

Balancing the need for agility and speed with the need for robustness and scalable operations is one of the main challenges when it comes to API strategies and their execution. With this guide, software architects, program directors and product owners will learn how to maximize the value of an API by managing it as a product through a continuous life cycle.
