How do enterprises start their API modernization journeys? More often than not, it’s with a single developer who recognizes all that production-grade GraphQL API adoption can bring to the table—and decides to act as the catalyst for organizational change.
As a fully open-source technology, the GraphQL API query language gives developers more efficient workflows and streamlined access to enterprise scalability. Because GraphQL enables applications to collect all the data they require by making a single API request (and control that data directly), the development pace, simplicity, and stability of working with GraphQL provide night-and-day advantages over legacy REST APIs. For enterprise developers, there’s no real difficulty in setting up GraphQL and getting a server up and running. The challenge usually begins when they need to win their organization’s full backing to achieve a lasting implementation with all the stability and security an enterprise requires from Day One.
