Why Full Lifecycle API Management Needs API Testing and Monitoring

Posted Sep 14th, 2021

Webinar Date: Sep 14th, 2021

Today, teams need highly scalable, reliable, and integration-friendly backend API management and testing. By unifying API management and testing throughout the lifecycle on a cloud platform, teams can work the way that works best for them - without fear of increasing release risk in production.

Development, application, and security leaders are increasingly embracing a full-lifecycle approach to managing internal and public API programs. While distributed teams and a growing remote workforce may build products with different toolchains and infrastructure requirements, one thing that must stay consistent is quality at speed. This means that teams need highly scalable, reliable, and integration-friendly backend API management and testing. By unifying API management and testing throughout the lifecycle on a cloud platform, teams can work the way that works best for them - without fear of increasing release risk in production.

But first, teams must evolve from siloed apps and processes to cloud-driven collaboration with far fewer API testing bottlenecks, ensuring that developers and testers can focus on delivering better and more secure customer experiences - from web services to mobile apps.

In this joint webinar, hear from engineers at Sauce Labs and TIBCO Cloud Mashery who will discuss how companies across banking, financial services, retail, telecom, gaming, broadcasting, healthcare, and other areas are achieving consistent quality at speed by simply getting teams on the same page when it comes to API quality.

Key Takeaways

  • Properly govern and secure APIs by unifying full-lifecycle API management with API testing at a centralized cloud platform that can integrate with any gateway or toolchain

  • Boost velocity and simplicity in cloud, mobile, and API developer portals by making it easy to build and test in parallel: ship faster with greater confidence and much lower risk in production

  • Maintain top SLAs for internal, partner, and public API programs by maximizing observability with cloud-based API testing and monitoring that gives real-time feedback and detailed error reporting about your organization’s entire API infrastructure
