"As companies are growing, more organizations start their digital transformation strategy. This transformation implies working with APIs and micro-services, mainly internal ones.

When the team has thousands of collaborators around the world with hundreds of teams producing APIs it's hard to keep track of all the services available.
There should be an easy way to find about all the available APIs, to help teams gain in efficiency and not duplicate someone's work.

In 2014, we launched in collaboration with Kin Lane, the APIs.json format, which should act as the robots.txt for APIs metada, making APIs easily crawlable and indexable.

What we've learned for public APIs could be used for internal services. We will announced our newest version and progress to make APIs more discoverable inside companies."
