The move to cloud computing has highlighted the importance of
Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). With the rise in cloud
applications and interconnect platforms, API testing is a necessity. However what makes a good API? What happens when you change the application but need to support existing users of the API?
Increasingly APIs are becoming strategic business assets, with customers and users becoming dependent on specific APIs and features. Without APIs you wouldn't have such innovative and disruptive companies as Uber, AirBNB, Netflix and Amazon. For those with longer memories, without the Win32 API, Microsoft would still be a small company making MS-DOS!
