Debuts New AI-augmented API Management and Composability Capabilities
February 26, 2024 announced AI-augmented API Management, a new Tray Universal Automation Cloud capability that turns any new or existing workflow into a reusable API, significantly decreasing the technical debt associated with the operational effort and costs of traditional API management (APIM).

Built on top of Merlin AI, the foundational intelligence layer of the Tray platform, this modern approach to APIM provides developers and business teams with a unified low-code, AI-augmented development toolkit to collaborate, innovate and streamline the creation of microservices. It transforms microservice delivery and maintenance with no additional overhead or provisioning. Additionally, with a modern connector development kit (CDK) and new Tray Build user experience, fusion teams can drive high-velocity composable, collaborative and reusable integration and automation development.

The Tray Universal Automation Cloud breaks down barriers to collaboration by offering low-code, code-first and AI-augmented development environments in the same platform, providing a common way for developers and business technologists to create automations, integrations and APIs. Powered by Merlin AI, teams can now use AI-augmented API development to speed delivery using natural language, as well as streamline the post-deployment API lifecycle, including optimization recommendations and microservice explainability and narratives.

“Enterprises simply can't afford to use plodding, developer-only API management tooling that is painful to deliver, expensive to provision and impossible to manage. Fusion-team-based development, where business teams who use low-code and development teams who are building code-first and consuming APIs can all work together, is quickly becoming essential for enterprises to achieve the velocity they need,” said Alistair Russell, co-founder and CTO. “It’s no longer a question of whether organizations should unify their development approaches on a single platform — but how — so they can eliminate inefficiencies, such as the need to juggle separate tooling. With Tray, teams can maximize their productivity by building integrations, automations and now APIs once and then securely share them across the organization, quickly, reusably and collaboratively to service a multitude of use cases — all on a single underlying platform for strong governance, management and control.”

With Tray API Management, teams can take advantage of the following features to quickly build, deliver and manage APIs:

- Tray Build which provides a single unified development environment for teams to collaboratively create integrations and workflows and now turn them into REST APIs in a few clicks.

- API governance and control provides secure publishing, governance, access control, rate limiting and more, so teams can deploy APIs with confidence.

- Lifecycle management using Tray Build provides a visual view of API logic to facilitate changes and explainability with powerful Merlin narratives that describe every step of the business logic behind the API to fast-track developer understanding.

- Elastic scalability, powered by the platform’s serverless Enterprise Core, ensures companies can scale virtually effort-free compared to traditional rigid and difficult to provision APIM tools.

Expanded Tray Universal Automation Cloud capabilities also include:

- A Tray Connector Development Kit to build composable connectors for use across all Tray Universal Automation Cloud capabilities — process automation, data integration and APIM — and development experiences including Tray Build and Tray Code. Legacy SDKs are traditionally complex and require nuanced skill sets, but the Tray CDK is designed around Node and TypeScript for the modern developer. An OpenAPI import defines operations in seconds rather than weeks of development and features TypeScript that’s familiar for JavaScript developers versus hard-to-find skill sets like Ruby.

- An advanced Tray Build user experience centered around composability. The new user experience makes it simple to assemble integrations for every composable component — including snippets, APIs, templates and callables — by providing a singular repository to centralize and manage every building block to maximize collaboration during development and reuse across all Universal Automation Cloud capabilities.’s task-based pricing enables enterprises to consume any Tray Universal Automation Cloud capability — automation, integration and APIM connectivity — without having to pay for costly add-ons or buy expensive cores.
