Our Vision

On a Mission!

We envision a world where API management is a basic building block of every organization’s IT landscape and is leveraged in a way that enables them to get full transparency and control of all services and data that they publish both internally and externally. API Management will not be something that you just have to do, but a strategic topic that has a great value to customers and thus needs the same level of thought as, for example, a companies’ cloud strategy. API Management will focus on the APIs itself as an independent entity instead of just another workload on a gateway.

We create products and share knowledge enabling organizations to excel in the space of API management. Our customers shall be named leaders on API management in their respective verticals. They shall not be limited by vendor lock-ins or technology decisions that hamper change. Instead the should rely on open standards and vendor-independent technology, enabling them to embrace change. This enables them to go to market faster, build resilient ecosystems and secure themselves and their customers’ data effortlessly.
