API Atlas & Optic can give you powerful insights about your APIs and how they are used.
Internally this can be used for automatically generating documentation, making APIs more discoverable, and ensuring that every API call is updated whenever the APIs it depends on changes.
For a company that sells an API, publishing your API through API Atlas + Optic gives you the ability to push updates to all your consumers whenever your API updates.
For development tools builders, we can provide a graph documenting a project’s API and all the places it’s consumed. This graph can be piped into a documentation tool, used for code search, audited for security, used to generate code & many other other things we haven’t crossed out mind.
