San Diego, CA., September 9th — Apiboost, an enterprise API portal SaaS platform, has been recognized by Gartner as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Unified Communications and Collaboration 2021. Apiboost is mentioned in the API Marketplaces category.
Gartner Hype Cycle reports offer insights into the relative maturity of technologies operating within specific industries.
Apiboost’s inclusion in the report highlights the value that Gartner’s analysts are assigning to APIs and API Marketplace within the communications industry. “By 2024, 80% of organizations will prioritize collaboration and meeting platforms over telephony when defining unified communications portfolio strategy,” Gartner mentions in the report. This means that organizations will require easier access to technologies that help facilitate easier collaboration, including APIs and API marketplaces.
Apiboost’s listing a Sample Vendor underscores the value of the Apiboost platform and the impact of Developer portals and API Marketplaces in the communications industry.
“We’re proud that Gartner has recognized Apiboost as an API marketplace and API portal solution for the communications sector. The report touched on a number of crucial trends driving the API economy forward, which in turn, is fuelling the need for impactful API portal and API marketplace solutions,” said Ron Huber, Founder of Apiboost.
“External API marketplaces allow organizations to share APIs with a community of developers, including facilitating an ecosystem by enabling partners to implement solutions using their APIs,” mentioned Mark O'Neill, VP Analyst at Gartner. On the other hand, he continued, “internal API marketplaces help developers discover and share APIs between teams.”
A key Apiboost feature is the Product Optimizer, which allows for APIs and any content associated with them to be productized. This enables products and content on the developer portals to be controlled at a Product Owner level, and dictates can manage content associated with products, including the description in the catalog, blogs, videos, events and forums.
Another key Apiboost feature is the robust Team Builder, which enables administrators to build teams and gather team members to innovate on applications and products. This dynamic tool is great for assigning apps and products to departments, partners, and customers for effective development while securely exposing data to approved team members.
