API OBSERVABILITY

Ensure a healthy API economy for digital success

API failure can have a catastrophic impact on your applications

APIs power today's digital world, enabling application communication. They help companies communicate faster and build stronger connections and business models. However, APIs must function through a web of third-party dependencies, dynamic architectures, and microservice meshes that can't be monitored by traditional tools.  

To get full value from the API economy, companies must change how they collect and analyze API data. That’s why our observability approach goes beyond traditional monitoring to offer insights based on a holistic view.

Optimize API performance for a flawless digital experience

Trend long-term reliability

Capture availability, performance, and custom KPI metrics for long-term regression analysis.

Test functionality

Run API transactions to test functionality, execute payloads, and parse for expected responses.

Validate data integrity

Assure service delivery across your complex mesh of API endpoints, invoked microservices, and gateways.

Reduce risk of third-party API dependencies

Gain complete visibility into business-critical APIs

Correlate performance to business results by measuring compliance with API service-level objectives.

Handle vendor partnerships

Share and analyze objective third-party data to foster communication and collaboration.

Defeat issues proactively

Manage API incidents in real time to reduce - and avoid - end-user impact.

The value is in the data correlation between say, traffic spikes and page loads and APIs. By zeroing in, we’ve been able to reduce our mean time to resolve by about 15%.
