Financing will Fuel New API Technology and Global Expansion
The funding will be used to further Apiary’s leadership in API design and expand the company’s engineering division to keep up with rising customer demand. As one of the first companies in the world focused on API design, Apiary is committed to investing in innovation around its core platform and growing Apiary’s API tooling strategy that includes API Blueprint, the popular open-source format for describing APIs.
“The stunning growth of the API market has firmly moved APIs from being a purely specialist domain, to large, mainstream usage. That is fueling a substantial market for a far better class of technologies and tools to design, build and manage them,” said
By 2016, 50% of all B2B collaboration will take place through Web APIs, according to
Apiary helps developers build beautiful APIs, quickly. Developers and businesses use Apiary’s API Blueprint language as the fastest way to describe APIs -- from prototypes through collaborative design and review processes before costly and time-consuming programming begins. Developers then use Apiary to check their programming correctly follows the specification, to share their APIs with others and help them use those APIs quickly.
“What excited us about Apiary is their unique platform approach to the big and growing problem of how to create, document and test APIs,” said
“APIs are fundamentally changing the way software is created, making the need for technology to build and maintain APIs critical. Apiary is one of the few firms who understand the unique challenges of good API design and the Apiary platform is the easiest way for developers to manage the entire API lifecycle,” said
