SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Postman, the world’s leading API Platform, today announced it has been recognized as a Visionary in the 2023 Gartner Magic Quadrant for API Management* for the third consecutive year.
APIs remain a priority for businesses large and small, with Postman’s 2023 State of the API Report finding that 92% of the 40,000 respondents expect to maintain or increase their investment into APIs over the coming year — an increase from 89% in the prior year’s survey. Furthermore, 60% of API professionals are employing generative AI tools, with over one-third excited about building generative AI-powered apps.
“The importance of API Management has increased significantly as AI becomes more embedded in the software that powers enterprises,” said Abhinav Asthana, co-founder and CEO of Postman. “APIs are the hands and legs that power the ‘thinking’ accomplished by AI. They connect AI-powered bots to data, as well as to the verbs and nouns significantly impacting real-world scenarios. Postman plays an indispensable role in managing APIs, and we’re honored to be named a Visionary.”
The Gartner recognition follows the Postman API Platform’s recent recognition by the 2023 API Awards as “Best in API Management,” underscoring Postman’s leading role in the sector.
Postman has set the industry standard for API testing, development, and collaboration with tools like Postman Workspaces and Collections—and it continues to innovate. This year, Postman released Flows, a visual, low-code tool designed to streamline API workflows for users of all technical abilities. And Postbot, the recently released AI-powered assistant, is helping tens of thousands of developers work faster.
