SmartBear Releases Results of 2021 State of Software Quality | API Survey
Findings show that developers continue to take on more responsibility around API testing and face increasing challenges around accelerated release cadence expectations
With responses from over 1,600 API professionals from more than 17 different industries globally, this year's findings show that new API standards continue to emerge to meet new challenges. The majority of API practitioners operate in this new multi-protocol landscape contributing to more complex architectures, increasing the need for tooling that drives standardization and ease of use.
"As organizations adopt new API technology, having a view into what others are doing helps our customers understand the market and adoption trends," said Joanna Schloss, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing at SmartBear. "Overall, we see new specifications coming to the market faster than existing ones will disappear, adding more complexity into the API environment. The need for tooling to meet teams where they are, agnostic of protocols and specifications, is becoming imperative in today's market."
