While APIs are on the cutting edge of modern computing, they are just now hitting the maturity level of many other “systems” in everyday Enterprises: becoming a “Business Unit”. This means that they are no longer confined to the coding dungeons of past, affecting only the engineering teams and maybe, at a forward-thinking company, the product teams. APIs are now fully represented by Marketing, Sales, Finance, Ops – nearly everyone has a hand in their success today. This creates challenges that are not present in traditional applications and software(different pricing schemes, developer marketing prevalence, ecosystem and community building).
