API Testing is the booming entity in IT Profession since couple of years now. Either current delivery team is owning the entire product/solution/service or e\with current market of involvement of third-party vendors, where FrontEnd is being developed by one company, Backend is being developed by second company, Frontend testing is being performed by third company, Backend Testing being carried out by fourth company and the list goes on. Early Validation of Functionality is achievable with API Testing and as it is one of the core part of Deliverables, we should validate Performance of APIs as well.

As a result of that and aiming for continuous improvement, it is need of the hour to perform API Testing both Functionally and from Performance Perspectives.
