Unlock your AP-Why. When assessing prominent topics across DZone, and the software engineering space more broadly, it simply felt incomplete to conduct research on the larger impacts of data and the cloud without talking about such a crucial component of modern software architectures: APIs.

Modern API management is where the theoretical becomes actionable. No longer are high-level architectures and design enough; we explore the emerging ways in which our isolated data — located on-prem, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment — can better integrate with and work alongside other application components via approaches like API generation, gateways, and more.

In this year’s “Modern API Management” Trend Report, we plan to further assess emerging API influence and implementation techniques, including GraphQL, API security, automation, and AI. In a world where applications and data capabilities grow increasingly complex, communication is key.
  • The summary emphasizes the critical role of APIs in integrating diverse data sources and application components.
  • It highlights the shift from theoretical concepts to practical implementation in API management, focusing on strategies like API generation and gateways.
  • The summary promises insights into emerging trends such as GraphQL, API security, automation, and AI, reflecting the dynamic nature of modern software architectures.

Thomas Jardinet
IT Architect, Rhapsodies Conseil
As an IT Architect with strong experience in Integration topics (with multiple contributions for Dzone Tech and Ref Cards), I accompany business projects in defining their architectures, whether functional, application or technical, by studying with them the best path. I also have more than I also accompany them in the organizational side, and above all I seek intellectual and human exchange. I am also a supporter of flattened organizations, as I think it greatly improves productivity, robustness, and resilience of companies
