Visit SmartBear at IBM Think – March 19-22, 2018 – Las Vegas for Demos Showcasing the Complete API Lifecycle Supporting OAS 3.0, Kiosks 104/105
SOMERVILLE, Mass. — March 16, 2018 —

SmartBear, the leader in software quality tools for teams, is showcasing its end-to-end support for the OpenAPI Specification (OAS) throughout the entire API lifecycle at IBM Think, taking place on Monday, March 19 – Thursday, March 22, 2018 in Las Vegas. The OAS (formerly known as the Swagger Specification) has emerged as the world’s standard for describing RESTful APIs. The OAS defines the interface for RESTful APIs, describing them in a format that is easily discoverable and understandable by both machines and humans. Throughout the last several months, SmartBear has recognized the importance of the OAS, announcing several of its tools in support of the latest version, OAS 3.0.

Last month, SmartBear announced support for OAS in AlertSite, a market leader in performance monitoring for web, mobile, cloud, and API, allowing teams to leverage their existing OAS files to create API monitors seamlessly and instantly, driving standardization from design to deployment. This year the company also announced Swagger Inspector, a free cloud-based API testing and documentation tool to simplify the validation of any API and generate its OpenAPI documentation.  Last year, SmartBear launched OAS support for SwaggerHub, the integrated API design and documentation platform, allowing teams to leverage the latest OAS in their design and documentation workflow for new APIs and seamlessly convert existing APIs to OAS 3.0.

SmartBear’s ReadyAPI 2.2, the latest version of the popular API testing tool, also includes support for OAS 3.0 for functional, security, and load testing along with API virtualization. The company released updates to Swagger Editor and Swagger UI, enabling users to design and document OAS 3.0 APIs using the world’s most popular API tooling.

The company is also conducting live demonstrations of Collaborator for code and document review, as well as testing tools TestComplete, CrossBrowserTesting, and QAComplete

SmartBear’s software quality tools integrate with IBM Rational ClearCase, IBM Rational Synergy, IBM Rational Team Concert and IBM API Connect, allowing software teams to accelerate application and API delivery while also increasing quality and performance.

IBM Think builds off the success of the IBM Interconnect Conference, bringing together leaders and visionaries from across the world of cloud technology, AI, storage, and other technologies that are shaping today’s connected world. For more information on IBM Think 2018, visit:
