ANALYST REPORT: API MANAGEMENT BENCHMARK REPORT
Application programming interfaces, or APIs, are now a ubiquitous method and de facto standard of communication among modern information technologies. The information ecosystems within large companies and complex organizations are a vast array of applications and systems, many of which have turned to APIs as the glue to hold these heterogeneous artifacts together.
This report examines the results of a performance benchmark completed with two popular API management solutions: Kong and Apigee—two full life-cycle API management platforms built with scale-out potential and architectures for large scale, high performance deployments. Despite these similarities, there are some distinct differences in the two platforms.
