The API economy is the opportunity of APIs to generate new value and revenue streams to organizations via the use of APIs. In simple terms, API economy is about making services and data available via APIs in order to generate value for the company. The API economy’s value chain does not just expose your business internal assets to internal users, it can expose them to business partners, third-party developers, or the public at large. API marketplaces or portals are currently the default way for organizations to do so allowing the re-use and broad adoption of APIs.
