Struggles with API Endpoints
design API can exist in isolation. It is always related, sometimes in very complex ways, to an entire constellation of influencing situations and attitudes. What we call a good design API is one which achieves integrity — that is, unity or wholeness — in balanced relation to its environment.”

Early adopters of Qpoint use it to make sense of the constellation of third-party APIs that connect their business to the world. We call these their “Q points.”
Once they see and understand the intersections of their distributed applications and infrastructure, they can unlock the true potential of the Qpoint platform for third-party API management, analytics, compliance, data protection, identity and more.
