APImetrics joins OpenAPI, Dr Paul Cray to join Service Level Specifications groupGlobal quality standards that are meaningful, quantifiable and measurable are essential to maximizing the value that API creators and users provide across many industries”— Dr Paul Cray, Head of Machine Learning APImetricsSEATTLE, WA, USA, August 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — OpenAPI Welcomes New Member APImetrics!
APImetrics provides an enterprise focused API monitoring solution that interfaces with REST and SOAP API protocols. Monitoring is supported by analytics and customizable downtime alerts and provides data to enterprises to meet service level agreements (SLAs) and customer expectations.
“The economy has increasingly become a digital economy and the digital economy has been increasingly becoming an API economy over the past decade,” said Dr Paul Cray, Head of Machine Learning and Standards at APImetrics. “The COVID-19 crisis has only accelerated that trend. Global quality standards that are meaningful, quantifiable and measurable are essential to maximizing the value that API creators and users provide across many industries. That’s why the OpenAPI Initiative and APImetrics are such a perfect fit, and I am looking forward to working with OAI on these standards.”
APImetrics is particularly interested in working with OAI around standards that can help with the definition and measurement of Service Level Objectives as well as issues around certification, compliance, conformance and continuous testing and monitoring of APIs.
“APImetrics is a welcome addition to the OpenAPI Initiative,” said Marsh Gardiner, Product Manager, Google Cloud, and Technical Steering Committee member, OpenAPI Initiative. “When the industry works together to address common API description challenges, such as describing SLOs and SLAs, everybody wins.”

About the OpenAPI Initiative
The OpenAPI Initiative (OAI) was created by a consortium of forward-looking industry experts who recognize the immense value of standardizing on how APIs are described. As an open governance structure under the Linux Foundation, the OAI is focused on creating, evolving and promoting a vendor neutral description format. The OpenAPI Specification was originally based on the Swagger Specification, donated by SmartBear Software. To get involved with the OpenAPI Initiative, please visit https://www.openapis.org
