THERE HAS BEEN AN
EXPONENTIAL PROLIFERATION OF APIs
THROUGHOUT THE YEARS.
Our vision at Cloud Elements is to make it faster and easier for developers to connect and work with any API. Each new service or
application is an island of data, causing developers to be overrun with new APIs, resources and information. And with each new API,
developers are challenged with determining how it works and what value writing to the API brings.
This report helps to address the proliferation of APIs by providing trends, insights on ease of integration, data on where the industry is
strong, and where it is going next.
