While automation should be a huge part of any API project, there is nothing inherently automatic about properly building APIs and keeping them up and running. Doing so requires developers to carefully select frameworks, ensure the availability of documentation, determine a versioning strategy, secure the APIs and take a number of other considerations into account that can spell the difference between success and failure.
