Building a great API is hard, but it's just the beginning. Discovering and using great APIs for your own projects is a lot of work, but it's the only way to stay current. This is especially true for enterprise developers who are building out their own internal tools.

 

API marketplace is a solution to this problem. By aggregating and curating APIs, you can help developers quickly discover APIs that they can use in their own work.The API marketplace is an open marketplace where both the private and public APIs are available. The public APIs available in the API marketplace are free and easy to use. Therefore, developers can easily find and use these APIs. The private APIs provide added value to the developer community. These private APIs are more advanced, as they are paid and more sophisticated. The API marketplace lowers the barriers of entry for developers to access the API cloud. The API marketplace is beneficial even for the providers.
