Somerville, MA — January 13, 2022 —

SmartBear, a leading provider of software development and quality tools, is the winner of the IoT Development Tool of the Year Award in the annual IoT Breakthrough Awards for the second year in a row. SwaggerHub, the company’s integrated API development platform and choice of API designers, developers, and architects who are building, testing, and deploying high quality APIs, earned the IoT Development Tool of the Year Award again this year.  

“IoT represents a significant and key part of the digital transformation that we are witnessing across multiple industries today,” said James Johnson, Managing Director at Tech Breakthrough Awards. “Each year, we strive to deliver the most comprehensive analysis of the IoT industry, from connected home to industrial IoT solutions. This year, we had over 3,850 nominations from all over the world, and the industry evaluation was broad and extremely competitive. Congratulations to SmartBear for earning the IoT Development Tool of Year for the second year in a row.”

According to IDC, global spending on software and hardware related to IoT is projected to grow rapidly from $726 billion in 2019 to $1.1 trillion in 2023. SwaggerHub fosters API collaboration and standardization across distributed teams around the world. Built on the OpenAPI Specification (OAS), SwaggerHub has become the standard that the world’s leading enterprises rely on to deliver high quality APIs faster to market.

“SmartBear has a leading role in the multi-trillion-dollar market for API-driven products and services, empowering enterprise software teams worldwide to deliver the highest quality software required for success in today’s accelerated digital world,” said Calvin Fudge, Director, Product Marketing, API Lifecycle at SmartBear. “Thousands of teams use SwaggerHub to bring high quality applications to market faster, and we are delighted SwaggerHub has been recognized with the IoT Development Tool of the Year again this year.”

Last year, SmartBear released a SwaggerHub plug-in for the support of IntelliJ IDEA, the popular Java-based integrated developer environment (IDE). SwaggerHub connects tools that teams use to deploy and manage APIs, like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM API Connect, and Apigee. The company is known for meeting API developers where they work with familiar tools that make them more productive across the entire API development lifecycle.

SwaggerHub also includes an extension for Visual Studio Code, Microsoft’s industry-leading code editor and developer environment. Within the VS Code environment, API designers can interact seamlessly with the SwaggerHub platform to create, organize, and document APIs.
