Finding efficient ways to process, share, and reuse functionality and data is crucial – it’s an important way to break down monolithic applications into more consumable and maintainable microservices. In today’s API-focused world, this translates into multiprotocol development (gRPC, GraphQL, EDAs, etc.) and an enhanced development process (governance, standards, design-first). To understand this, we need to look more closely at protocols.

When you hear “Artificial Intelligence,” (AI) what do you think of? You might picture advanced humanoid robots or futuristic technology from sci-fi movies. But as it turns out, this “futuristic” technology is already integrated into our lives. It exists in our phones, televisions, and homes to make everyday tasks simpler. When it comes to software testing, AI can be implemented into your testing initiatives to increase efficiency.

API growth continues to rise within the modern enterprise. Microservices, are a leading growth driver for APIs as development teams continue to break down monolithic systems, seeking to capitalize on the advantages of decoupled capabilities. Benefits such as reduced costs, reduced time-to-market, faster release cycles and decentralized evolvability are possible. However, as APIs become increasingly prolific and central to core business functions, such benefits do not always linearly scale.

APIs have never been more instrumental in business. Organizations use them to deepen partnerships, accelerate development, integrate capabilities, and generate revenue. These business drivers, combined with the rise of microservices, drive incredible growth in the API space. According to the most recent State of Software Quality API report, 61% of survey respondents chose microservices as the technology that will most likely drive API growth.

We've all heard the stories about the overnight sensation that took decades to achieve. The "API Revolution" has that same feel to me. Some version of APIs has been at the heart of application development for many years, but as the web application world grew more and more connected and developers learned to leverage code built outside their own application, the API industry began to boom and flourish.

When it comes to APIs, performance is just as important as accuracy. No matter how good the features and functionality of your application might be, if it performs poorly by crashing or loading slowly, your users will lose interest quickly. With this in mind, we've put together a comprehensive guide to the fundamentals of API load testing.

While APM solutions have been mitigating poor user experiences since the early 90s, only recently have these tools begun to deliver on the promise of proactively identifying and diagnosing performance issues before users are impacted-but they are still far from perfect. For starters, why the lack of unified functionality? Why do we still need multiple tools in order to deliver a single APM solution? Or do we?
