Our team just published a byline in Forbes entitled, Demystifying APIs and API Quality, explaining why APIs matter and what makes a good API. Written for a marketing generalist, the article provides some great in-plain-English explanations of:

  • What are Public Versus Private APIs? 
  • What Differentiates a Great API? 
  • What’s the Best Way to Evaluate an API?

Here’s an excerpt from the piece:

My vague conception was that you created some sort of metaphorical pipe and called it a day and that when you were evaluating a software solution, all you needed was a check box: has API?

Boy was I mistaken.
