What’s in This Book
This book contains our collective knowledge from many years spent designing, developing, and improving APIs—both our own and others’. We’ve distilled all that experience into this book. We’ve identified two core factors for effective API development: adopting a product perspective and implementing the right kind of team. We’ve also identified three essential factors for managing that work: governance, product maturity, and landscape design.
These five elements of API management form a foundation on which you can build a successful API management program. In this book, we introduce each of these topics and provide you with guidance on how to shape them to fit your own organizational context.
Who Should Read This Book
If you are just starting to build an API program and want to understand the work ahead of you, or if you already have APIs but want to learn how to manage them better, then this is the book for you.
In this book, we’ve tried to build an API management framework that can be applied to more than one context. In these pages you’ll find guidance that will help you to manage a single API that you want to share with developers around the world, as well as advice for building a complex set of APIs in a microservice architecture designed only for internal developers—and everything in between.
We’ve also written this book to be as technologically neutral as possible. The advice and analysis we provide is applicable to any API-based architecture, including HTTP CRUD, REST, GraphQL, and event-driven styles of interaction. This is a book for anyone who wants to improve the decisions being made about their APIs.
