Somerville — September 16, 2020 —
SmartBear, a leading provider of software development and quality tools, has won the 2020 API Award for Best in API Infrastructure for its API design and documentation platform, SwaggerHub. Used by more than 100,000 API practitioners in more than 40,000 organizations and 200,000 API projects, SwaggerHub is built for teams to bring high quality applications to market faster. The API Awards celebrate innovation, adoption, and reception in the API and microservices industry.
“SmartBear is helping empower developers and engineers to build upon the backbone of the multi-trillion-dollar market for API-driven products and services,” said Jonathan Pasky, Executive Producer & Co-Founder of DevNetwork, producer of API World & the 2020 API Awards. “Today’s cloud-based SaaS software and hardware increasingly are powered by an open ecosystem of API-centric architecture. This win by SmartBear at the 2020 API Awards is evidence of their leading role in the growth of the API Economy.”
Hundreds of nominations were received for the 2020 API Awards across 20 categories. The Advisory Board for API World, made up of industry veterans, selected the winners based on 1) attracting notable attention and awareness in the API industry, 2) general regard and use by the developer and engineering community, and 3) being a technical leader in its sector for innovation.
By taking manual infrastructural complexity out of the picture, SwaggerHub empowers thousands of teams made up of all levels of technical proficiency to generate beautiful documentation that is interactive, fully hosted, and privacy enabled. SwaggerHub has set the standard for API development. Earlier this year, SmartBear was named a 2020 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Full Life Cycle API Management for SwaggerHub.
The 2020 API Awards will be presented at the 2020 API Awards ceremony during API World 2020 Virtual, the world’s largest API and microservices conference and expo, taking place October 27-29, 2020. In its 9th year, over 4,000 attendees are expected at the event.
