Following our launch of APITools two weeks back, momentum in the space keeps accelerating with Runscope raising $6M of new funding (congrats!). While the tools don’t directly compete (Runscope focuses on testing, APItools on operations and transforming the traffic), this activity clearly shows that people are hard at work to help out API  users.

The number of APIs keeps growing, and providers have rich new resources for API development, but tooling to support the developers that consume those APIs for their applications hasn’t kept pace. But now, between Runscope and APItools you can test, monitor, transform traffic, generate documentation and set alerts for APIs – all things that previously required manual code.

One thing is for sure – there are exciting times ahead in the API space and better tooling all around!

Congrats to the Runscope team!
