Postman, the world’s leading API Platform, announced the launch of a new book—The API-First Transformation—authored by Postman Chief Evangelist Kin Lane. With the digital edition available now through Amazon, The API-First Transformation gives business and technology leaders the blueprints and building blocks they need to put APIs at the forefront of their software strategy. Hardcover copies are on sale beginning Tuesday, December 6, and you can pre-order your hard copy now.
API-first leaders, as identified in the 2022 State of the API Report, are an elite group that produces APIs faster, deploys more often, has fewer failures, and recovers sooner when failures occur. They also reported brighter business outlooks over the next 12 months.

“Every enterprise today is working with APIs; however, many of them lack a formal API strategy—let alone one that prioritizes APIs to drive innovation,” said Lane. “This book is the accumulation of over 10 years of research and thousands of conversations with developers and leading organizations. Our goal is to help business stakeholders realize the critical role APIs play in enterprise digital transformation, and understand why they are much more than just technical projects.”
The API-First Transformation shows readers how to create their own API strategy, assemble the right technology, and put solutions to work. Thirty executives from leading brands including 7-Eleven, National Basketball Association (NBA), and Twilio also share stories of how they have embraced API-first and the benefits that approach has delivered.
