We've already learned about the variety of product metrics we can set across infrastructure, product experience, and business metrics. But each metric only shows us a part of the big picture.

Metrics can be used to figure out how the product is doing, find ways to improve it, and set goals for the different teams.

As we now know, APIs are built, distributed, and supported by a number of different teams. All these teams and stakeholders have their own set of focused goals they track and optimize.
