The Benefits of Enabling Consumer Analytics on Your Developer Portal.
Regardless of whether your APIs are targeted towards external customers or teams within your organization, there are numerous benefits to enabling analytics for your API consumers. Some of these reasons are:
Improved Security: Through analyzing historical API calls, consumers can identify unusual patterns or suspicious activities that may indicate security breaches or unauthorized access attempts.
Usage Optimization: Consumers can monitor API usage within their subscribed plans to determine if the current plan is adequate and if there is enough capacity remaining. This enables them to make informed decisions about whether to upgrade to a higher tiered plan based on their requirements.
Transparency - Providing consumers with greater visibility and control over their API usage, demonstrates a user-centric approach and allows you to attract customers who value transparency and data-driven decision-making. When they can monitor and analyze their API usage, they are more likely to recognize the value they are deriving from your services.
