There’s no doubt the last two years have seen an accelerated push to move the majority of workloads to the cloud. You can’t talk about cloud migration without talking about how you manage your application programming interfaces (APIs.) Because APIs are how you build and connect your cloud-native applications.
Instead of properly breaking up and preparing workloads, many of these digital transformations have just been of the ‘lift and shift‘ variety — which only offers a fractional advantage. That’s because, whether self-dubbed cloud-native or truly legacy, many organizations have failed to initiate the organization-wide API management strategy necessary to break away from the monolith and unlock business agility.
