Launching a Scalable API Program with OpenAPI:
How to Optimize Your API Workflow with OpenAPI & Swagger
Recognizing APIs as a driver of business and strategic initiatives is a fairly recent development, and organizations have now started to invest heavily in their API strategy. Organizations that are making significant investments in developing API strategies go beyond traditional technology leaders. Industries — from financial services to healthcare, education to manufacturing, and many more — have seen a significant growth in API adoption.
This has been accompanied by an explosion in adoption in API description formats, like the OpenAPI Specification (formerly known as the Swagger Specification), which provide a contract for your API that is language agnostic and human readable, allowing both machines and humans to parse and understand what the API is supposed to do. Today, thousands of organizations — both large and small — use the OpenAPI Specification (OAS) to streamline the development and drive adoption for their APIs. Implementing OAS across your organization’s internal and external APIs comes with a unique set of challenges, especially when attempting to scale multiple API projects across a number of different teams. This is where having a workflow to facilitate the implementation of OAS can come in handy.
The goal of this whitepaper is to introduce an easy-to-follow workflow for working with OAS within your organization.
