Why you should prefer an API 1st SaaS platform over open source software
The use of open source software sounds tempting. It gives you the impression of being fully in control. This may be a plus. But on the other hand, being fully in control can also mean being fully responsible for software maintenance.
Furthermore, it can also mean that with every change you make to the source code, you will no longer be able to benefit from regular updates from a standard software vendor.
A modern API 1st SaaS platform separates core capabilities coming from the standard software provider from individual software development and integrations with 3rd party services.
