TIBCO® Cloud Integration can support you during all phase of your Enterprise Cloud API Strategy.

Specify API's

create and document your API Specification using the TIBCO® Cloud Integration API Modeler.
First Steps described here. (Steps 1-10)

Mock APi's

create simple or advanced Mockup's for your early API from that Specification, including dynamic response baes on request content.
Detailed Steps can be found here. (Steps 11-15)

Test API's

Test your API against the Specification and Mockup, if need you can quickly adjust your Specification, and create a new Mockup.
Testing can be done using the integrated Swagger Tool or any other external Tool like Postman, Soap UI etc. All this can be performed localy or with a Cloud Instance.

Implement API's

With TIBCO Business Studio™ - Cloud Edition, for TIBCO® Cloud Integration you are able to do the real Implementation according the same API Interface Specification, by just download the Specification into Studio and rerun you testing. 
Steps described here.

Deploy API's

From TIBCO Business Studio™ - Cloud Edition you can create from your Implemenation an 'Enterprise Archive' (EAR) and do automatic Deployments from the Comand-Line, or just use the graphical Wizard with Studio to push the Implemenation to TIBCO® Cloud Integration. 
Details can be found here. (in middle of the Article)

Enrich API's

By adding Microflows to your Implementation you can easily add e.g. scalling, throttling, caching or transformations, & add custom responses, the biggest benefit here is that you don't have to care about things like this in each and every Service Implemenation again and again.
Details can be found here.

Publish API's

Finally you can publish your Enterprise Cloud API by using TIBCO Mashery, and open it to wide range of Developers. By doing this Features like authorization and authentication, packaging, partner management, gateway functionality and analytics are automatically available to use within your Solution.

Note: All these Stages can be performed in Loops and Iterations to support enrichments, updates and bugfixing.
