The move to ever-smaller deployments (e.g., containers and serverless functions) and ever more automated ways of testing, deploying and managing the (e.g., CI/CD pipelines and Kubernetes) has increased the complexity of a typical application landscape manyfold. To counter the complexity of ever more decentralized business logic, centralizing common functionality and policy is essential to reducing the overhead of security and governance that exists for every deployment unit, as well as to increase the speed of developing new features and functionality.
At the same time, this centralization should not happen somewhere far away from where the implementations are running. Be it on virtual machines, containers or even bare metal, API management should sit right next to the implementations to increase performance, reduce latency and support the same deployment processes and tooling.
