What makes IBM API Connect stand out? 
Here are three ways its product innovation contributed to winning the above awards:

API Development Made Simple

API Connect provides a single consolidated user interface for building and testing APIs. The editor design helps to effortlessly isolate and remedy errors using a visual debugging tool.

Let AI Help

Writing tests cases is tedious and time-consuming but necessary to ensure API quality so your services stay up and running. But this task can be simplified by leveraging AI. API Connect uses machine learning to automate API testing with 100% test coverage. This helps to identify testing gaps for real-world use cases and derives insights to handle complex scenarios to reduce repetitive tasks.

Reuse, Reuse, Reuse

It’s incredibly challenging to find and reuse assets across integrations. API Connect provides a visually engaging and lightweight developer portal that allows developers to discover APIs and other integration assets in an organized way that inspires users to continue innovating without duplicating work. This reuse of assets helps organizations get more value out of their APIs and accelerates ROI.
