WSO2 announced that it has been recognised by Forrester Research, Inc. as a Leader in The Forrester Wave: API Management Software, Q3 2024 report published on July 1, 2024. The report’s findings were based on a 24-criteria evaluation of the 15 vendors Forrester has identified as the API management software providers that matter most.

The Forrester Wave: API Management Software, Q3 2024 report notes that, “The central role of an API management solution is to manage relationships between API providers and API users, whether inside or across enterprise boundaries. To that end, organisations have an increasing need for API product management, automated API governance across different gateways, and cloud-native gateways. API programmes have widely varying use cases, governance styles, business models, and delivery processes, resulting in a broad variation of breadth and depth that buyers need from their API management software.”
