SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Postman, the world’s leading API Platform, today announced it has been named a Visionary in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management*. This marks the second year in a row in which Gartner has recognized Postman for its API Platform, which helps organizations manage the entire API lifecycle from design to production.
“We are pleased that Gartner continues to recognize Postman as a Visionary in this rapidly evolving space,” said Abhinav Asthana, co-founder and CEO of Postman. “APIs are now the building blocks of modern software, and the API Management sector is adapting to meet this moment. Postman is committed to pushing the envelope and paving the way to an API-first world through its support of multi-cloud, hybrid architectures and multi-gateway approaches.”
The Evolving API Platform
An API-first world requires evolving the API Management category through API Platforms with integrated tools and processes that allow producers and consumers to build, manage, publish, and consume APIs. A true API Platform helps organizations manage the entire API lifecycle from design to production, while also bringing API consumers into the fold.
One of the most compelling tools in this landscape are Postman’s collaborative workspaces. Workspaces provide a space that is secure and controlled to create API products and services, and can be shared with internal teammates, select external partners, or even the public. This—as well as Postman Collections—fosters collaboration to build more powerful products and services, and sets Postman apart as an API Platform.
Postman also received the highest Internal API Management Use Case score of all offerings in the 2022 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Full Life Cycle API Management.
Postman’s vision and continued evolution of the API Platform are driven by a deep commitment to its users. The platform surpassed 20 million users earlier this year, and the Postman Public API Network is the largest API hub in the world, with 13,000 APIs and 100,000 workspaces including Salesforce, Slack, and Stripe. According to Postman’s 2022 State of the API Report, 38 million collections were created on the Postman API Platform over the previous 12 months alone.
Postman makes it simple for any organization to embrace an API-first development model. The company recently launched Postman v10, which delivers new features for API Security and Governance, in addition to native Git support and the Postman command-line interface. Postman also recently announced the Postman Ecosystem Partner Program, offering integrations with strategic partners such as Microsoft Azure to support accelerated API-first adoption.
