APIs are your key to digitisation. In the blog “What exactly is an API”, we introduce the topic and explain the general functionality of APIs. Did you know that there are different APIs? Find out in this blog what types of APIs exist, how they differ and where API Lifecycle Management comes in.
The different types of APIs
If you look at how APIs are used, you will see three types of APIs, which differ in whether and to what extent the APIs are made available to the public or were created exclusively for internal company purposes:
Whether you use APIs internally, offer them to business partners or make them available to the general public, consistent API full lifecycle management with an API management solution enables you to keep track of the status and usage of your APIs at all times. Having central administration, maintenance, version management, and tracking of API consumption will increase their adoption rate, regulate usage, as well as secure and protect your IT infrastructure.
