Somerville — January 12, 2021 —

SmartBear, a leading provider of software development and quality tools, is a winner in the 5th Annual IoT Breakthrough Awards. The company’s integrated API development platform, SwaggerHub, earned the 2021 “IoT Development Tool of the Year" Award. SwaggerHub has experienced dramatic growth as ecommerce companies and international standards bodies reprioritize digital initiatives that require high quality APIs and consistent API design standards. 

“Success in the digital age can be traced to how invested an organization is in API quality and standards,” said Calvin Fudge, Associate Director, API Product Marketing at SmartBear. “APIs are the connective tissue of any IoT solution and therefore must be high quality for the solution to succeed. SwaggerHub has become the standard that the world’s leading enterprises rely on to deliver high quality APIs faster to market. We are thrilled that SwaggerHub has been recognized as the IoT Development Tool of the Year in the 2021 Breakthrough Awards.” 

High quality APIs start with consistent, collaborative design standards that align with each organization’s unique business goals. SwaggerHub is the choice for API designers, developers, and architects tasked with building, testing, and deploying APIs that meet current and future business demands. SwaggerHub fosters API collaboration and standardization across multiple teams—even when those teams are distributed and working remotely. 

SwaggerHub is now integrated with ReadyAPI, the company’s API quality platform, yielding the most comprehensive tooling for all stages of the API lifecycle, and the recently released SwaggerHub extension for Visual Studio (VS) Code adds additional best-in-class options for API designers. 

The 2021 IoT Breakthrough Awards program had over 3,850 nominations from some of the most innovative companies from around the world. The awards recognize the best IoT companies, products, and people, and deliver the most comprehensive analysis of the IoT industry each year. For the complete list of winners, go to:
