Moesif Recognized in Hype Cycle for both API Observability and API Monitoring, 2023 Report

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Moesif, the distinguished leader of API monetization and analytics, announced today that it has been named a Sample Vendor for both the API Observability and the API Monitoring categories in the Gartner Hype Cycle, 2023.

According to the Hype Cycle for APIs, 2023: “API observability represents a new entry in this year’s Hype Cycle for APIs. This reflects the importance of API dependency analysis and usage monitoring. API observability solutions enable developers and API owners to see the impact of API changes, including detecting breaking changes before they happen.”

Moesif’s advanced API analytics empowers product owners to gain deep product insights into their customer API usage and turn their APIs into revenue centers. With plugins for most API gateways and programming languages, engineering teams can get started with API observability in minutes, while having peace of mind that Moesif scales to billions of monthly events.

With connectors for many billing platforms, product owners can start charging for API usage with just a few clicks and no-code needed. Moesif can automatically enforce subscription terms, entitlements, and quotas to drive upsells or guide customers with features like behavioral emails and embedded charts.

Gartner also stated, “Monitoring business-critical APIs is integral to business operations. From detecting changes to monitoring running states, observability captures data from each phase. API observability has moved from simple log analysis to sophisticated dashboards aggregating telemetry across many APIs, as well as integration with code repositories and integrated development environments (IDEs). Developers and API platform and platform engineering teams are affected by API observability systems and practices.” 1

According to Gartner, API observability has a Benefit Rating of High, which is defined as, “Enables new ways of performing horizontal or vertical processes that will result in significantly increased revenue or cost savings for an enterprise.” Gartner’s Benefit Rating for API monitoring is High, as well. 2
