API Programs and API Management in Europe: Assessing Customer Investment Attitudes, Appetite, and Vendor Portfolios Direction
This IDC Market Perspective discusses customer attitudes and market trends affecting API adoption programs and the API management domain in Europe. It identifies major drivers for APIs, important pain points and challenges when managing API estates, expected investment behavior and appetite, and competitive vendor movements impacting the shape of API management portfolios.
"APIs are seen as key vehicles for organizations to diversify business revenues and expand the reach of their channels. Given these expectations, API programs — and in turn, API management capabilities — are getting much attention from the business. API management is a prime area of investment in the short term by organizations in this region," said George Mironescu, senior research manager, Accelerated Application Delivery in Europe.
