Large enterprises embarking on Digital API transformation initiatives are increasingly relying on API Design Management platforms in addition to traditional API Management solutions to supercharge their business.
Poor API designs lead to poor service implementations and documentation which can slow down service delivery and negatively impact the ROI of the initiative.
Stoplight’s mission is to enable all stakeholders working with APIs to be more productive. Developing good design first practices will minimize future costs, speed up your time to market, and lead to more consistent, higher quality microservice and IoT applications.
We decided to go for Stoplight because we are convinced that the API must be held by the business people (product owners). Before, they were used to designing processes or UI screens. Now, the screens are made by UX experts or by fintechs using our APIs. So, the product owners have to design the API, it's an important change, not all of them are ready. This is why a graphical tools is a good opportunity, perhaps the only one, to involve them in the design of API.
