API Discovery has attracted more attention from the developer communities in recent times, partially because of the growth of APIs across various industries.

API Discovery is generally defined as the process of finding APIs from API marketplaces, directories, or through search engines. Unfortunately, this definition of API Discovery is not comprehensive enough for today’s API economy. The process of finding APIs will continue to be the soul of API Discovery, but the practice has become more complex. Other aspects could broaden the scope of API Discovery, which eventually may help in addressing the complex challenges of API management today.

In this session, Baljeet Malhotra (TeejLab) and Kin Lane (Postman) will talk about what API Discovery means in today's APIs driven digital economy. The main take away of this session: (1) technical due diligence, (2) terms of use transparency, (3) security discoverability, (4) regulation compliance, (5) Open Source and Open API visibility; is for development, security, operation, legal, licensing, and business teams that are collectively responsible for managing APIs at enterprises.
