APIs existing since entities needs to exchange data using an agreed protocol, format and exchange layers. Data exchanges evolves slowly due to their technical limitations, batch pattern, and specific protocols within a ecosystem struggling to define open standards.

More recently, trends with GraphQL are even challenging the exposition and the use of APIs gateways. Data exchange and leverage is a key capability of scaling for companies nowadays, the public Cloud being a suitable option to support those requirements.
