The shift to microservices is accelerating; according to IDC, “by 2022, 90% of all apps will feature microservices architectures.” 1 With this increase in complexity comes new challenges in ensuring standardization, reducing deployment risk and maintaining efficiency across development teams. To increase development velocity, organizations today must provide developers with robust tools to enable streamlined design and testing of APIs regardless of the underlying platform, protocol or deployment type.
Kong Studio builds on the Insomnia API testing tool to provide a design and test environment that integrates natively with Kong Enterprise. Use Kong Studio to streamline design and test workflows for REST and GraphQL services. Boost developer efficiency with dedicated workspaces and easy import/export of test data. Standardize processes across teams by defining custom tags and environment variables.
