Should you Build or Buy an API Catalog

Reading Time: < 1 minute

With an exponential growth of APIs (plus Services, Events, and Messages) to support digital responsiveness and competitive advantage, enterprises are realizing they need an API catalog. At the highest level: one place to capture, discover, reuse, manage, and govern from.

But do you need a simple catalog, or one that supports your digital maturity over time? And, should you be building it in house, or looking to purchase tooling?

This guide will teach you the answer to both questions. You’ll also learn:

  • Why all API catalogs are not created equal
  • Key criteria for making your build vs buy decision (time, architect and developer resource, cost)
  • Examples of how large enterprises are using their catalogs
