With the average enterprise organization consuming thousands of APIs, it has become increasingly challenging for developers to locate or socialize created APIs. It is even more difficult for organizations to manage their API collections. Even companies are now offering to socialize business partner’s APIs to their customers in order to create microservices, complex integrations, and product solutions.
IBM’s answer to this problem is the IBM API Hub.  This essential API hub offering allows for managing friction, preventing resource duplication, and breaks silos. It provides a single place for organizations to publish and share created APIs in an easy discoverable, searchable, highly available, and curated environment.
