What is Universal API Management

A strategy or platform referred to as “universal API management” offers full API management capabilities across a variety of settings, technologies, and architectures. It enables enterprises to control, safeguard, and regulate APIs independent of their deployment location, technological stack, or supported protocols.

APIs for reuse lead to duplication of effort, not to mention the challenges of managing these APIs from multiple management consoles.
