Gartner defines the Full Life Cycle API Management Market as the planning, design, implementation, testing, publication, operation, consumption, maintenance, versioning, and retirement of APIs.

“We believe that being named a 2020 Customers’ Choice for the Full Life Cycle API Management Market is a huge milestone for SwaggerHub,” said Christian Wright, Chief Product Officer of SmartBear. “The best feedback comes from our customers, and we are delighted to receive amazing feedback from them on Gartner Peer Insights. While we feel this is a tremendous honor, we know we are just scratching the surface of user-value with SwaggerHub. Our customers can expect more innovation and some amazing new API life cycle features coming out in 2020.”

Some Gartner Peer Insights reviews of SwaggerHub over the last year include:

“SwaggerHub Is A Game Changer When It Comes To API Design: SwaggerHub is a great tool for API design and standardization. The editor is very intelligent which will throw error if something is wrong and also has auto-completion feature which leads to faster development of APIs. Also, we can use SwaggerHub for storing our API and acts as API repository.”– Software Developer FULL REVIEW

"Excellent Tool for API Development: We've been using SwaggerHub for our API development for more than a year now, and we love that it's very fast to develop and deploy and even document APIs…I like how we can easily organize and manage our REST APIs while simultaneously scaling and standardizing design practices across all product development teams. I also like how you can maintain and update multiple API doc versions for use in different product development stages.” – RPA Developer FULL REVIEW

“One of The Best Tools to Outline and Test APIs: SwaggerHub is an excellent platform to make it easier for API coding in the team. It is very useful to create teams and work within projects. The customer service is excellent and very helpful. Another good thing is that it allows you to test APIs before being published.”– Senior Android Engineer FULL REVIEW
