What does this mean for end users, especially ReadyAPI users? I am hoping that the entire investment will be put into ReadyAPI 🙂

Hi Rajs2020,


Thank you for your question! While I can’t speak directly to how this new investment will be distributed, our CEO, Frank Roe, recently summarized what this news means for our customers: “Our intention with this investment is to help you even more on your path to success. This means you’ll see more product innovation across our portfolio of tools, and as we go forward, many more of the ideas that you and all of our customers share will be able to come to life.”
