For Third Straight Year, SmartBear Wins IoT Development Tool of the Year in Annual IoT Breakthrough Awards

With recently added AsyncAPI support, SwaggerHub wins again in IoT Breakthrough Awards
SOMERVILLE, Mass. — January 12, 2023 —

SmartBear, a leading provider of software development and visibility tools, is the winner of the IoT Development Tool of the Year in the 2023 IoT Breakthrough Awards. SwaggerHub, the company’s integrated API development platform and de facto choice of API designers, developers, and architects who are building, testing, and deploying the highest-quality, most reliable APIs, earned the award for the third straight year. The awards have been recognizing the world’s best IoT companies, products, services, and people since 2017.

“2022 was a massive year for SwaggerHub, as the solution added powerful new features to equip teams and organizations with the ability to scale with growth in API numbers and an ever-increasing mix of API protocols,” said Dan Faulkner, Chief Product Officer at SmartBear. “We are thrilled that SwaggerHub has been recognized again this year with an IoT Breakthrough Award for unlocking discovery, collaboration, and standardization across various API styles.”

SmartBear recently released AsyncAPI Specification support in SwaggerHub so development teams working across event-driven architectures (EDAs) can collaborate in the industry’s leading API development platform to develop, document, and standardize their APIs. AsyncAPI is the leading specification to document and describe event-driven API architectures, including Apache Kafka.

APIs are the connective tissue of the IoT solutions that our world cannot live without. High quality APIs start with consistent, collaborative design standards that align with each organization’s unique business goals. As physical attributes are at a premium in the IoT world and as consumer expectations increase, so has the need for software teams to operate in fast environments. High-quality, innovative APIs have made a tremendous impact on the global economy by enabling IoT companies to quickly address and respond to changes in the market.

Built on the OpenAPI Specification, SwaggerHub allows providers to deliver quality from inception to delivery through consistent, collaborative design standards. Thousands of teams use SwaggerHub to bring high quality applications to market faster, including more than 100,000 API practitioners in more than 40,000 organizations and 200,000 API projects.
