What We're Building

Brightwork is a PaaS for building API centric applications. Today there are more than 10,000 APIs and more are being released everyday. However, there is no way to really see how those APIs are being used. There are very few data points for developers to find out how efficient their APIs are running. On top of that, developers cannot see if the APIs they are using are the most cost effective. Also, if they want to switch APIs, it takes a lot of code changes and re-deploying that code.

Brightwork takes the guess work out of API usage, efficiency, and cost. Now developers can use the Brightwork dashboard to see how the APIs they use compare to other solutions out there. They can see if it's the most cost effective. And through the Brightwork dashboard, switch APIs on the fly. This saves developers time and money. Anyone that has ever had to switch APIs knows this is a big issue and we've taken all the hard work to make it completely seamless!
