APIIDA, Delivering Automated API Management Solutions, Joins the OpenAPI Initiative

By May 31, 2022Blog

The OpenAPI Initiative, the consortium of forward-looking industry experts focused on evolving and implementing the OpenAPI Specification (OAS), is welcoming APIIDA as a new member.

APIIDA provides an API management platform and develops solutions and products for customers to manage change by enabling technology-independent API management. The APIIDA solution separates APIs from their runtimes and adapts them to focused strategies, acting as independent entities. This is done with the goal to improve customer experience and allow the rapid growth of new business models and offerings. 

“We are excited to be a part of the OpenAPI Initiative. Having widely adopted standards like OpenAPI provides us with a stable base we can build upon. Together with the other members of the OpenAPI Initiative, we want to expand the reach and the adoption of the OpenAPI Specification. This will benefit APIIDA customers, and it’s the right thing to do for the broader API community,” said Markus Müller, CTO, and co-founder of APIIDA. “By actively contributing to the special interest groups and the steering committees we want to give back to the community.”

The company currently serves over 300 organizations of all sizes and across a wide range of industries.

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 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
