SOMERVILLE, Mass. — January 17, 2024 —

SmartBear, a leading provider of software development and visibility tools, earned the Enterprise IoT Platform Innovation Award by IoT Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global Internet-of-Things (IoT) market. The 8th annual awards program showcases technologies and companies that drive innovation and exemplify the best in IoT technology solutions across the globe. With thousands of nominations coming in from all over the world for the 2024 IoT Breakthrough Awards, this is the fourth year in a row SmartBear’s  popular API design and documentation tool, SwaggerHub, has been named a winner.

“In an era where interconnected IoT devices have become indispensable, APIs are the connective tissue that IoT solutions cannot live without,” said Dan Faulkner, Chief Product Officer at SmartBear. “SwaggerHub stands as a beacon of innovation and excellence in API development. This recognition from IoT Breakthrough for the fourth year in a row underscores SmartBear’s unwavering dedication to providing cutting-edge solutions for the IoT landscape and connected experiences across API design, governance, test, and documentation.”

In 2023, SwaggerHub gained support for the latest OpenAPI 3.1, and in parallel, added all versions of AsyncAPI, ensuring that developers have access to the most up-to-date standards. This support not only streamlines the development process but also guarantees compatibility and future proofing for IoT projects.

SmartBear launched its SwaggerHub integration with PactFlow contract testing to bring design-time insights to teams, eliminating unexpected breaking changes. SmartBear also unveiled a groundbreaking exploration capability, SwaggerHub Explore, simplifying the discovery process for API consumers and accelerating the integration of APIs into their systems. SmartBear’s new customizable developer and documentation portal capability in SwaggerHub Portal opens doors to a multitude of consumers, significantly improving their interaction with API products. This portal serves as a gateway to enhanced understanding and utilization of APIs, fostering collaboration and innovation across the IoT landscape.

This year, SmartBear is converging its toolsets into three integrated hubs – API Hub, Test Hub, and Insight Hub – for the industry’s most comprehensive API development, testing, and insight readiness. SmartBear Hubs connect developers’ favorite tools into critical functions, providing teams with the visibility to confidently build, test, release, and monitor software that powers great user experiences.
