    Hi guys,

    I'm quite new to this forum, it is my first message even though I've been following it for some time already.

    I would like to get your views about GraphQL and how you see the possibilities of adoption of it as the primary language for Open APIs definition in the future at some point.

    It would definetly be a significant change but there are advantages in terms of efficiency for GraphQL versus REST in several scenarios, more control on the client to query only the data it needs, simpler versioning management on server side, etc.... In some other domains (maybe not Telco) a few companies have started adopting GraphQL and abandoning REST.

    I'm curious to know if anyone has raised this question before and how do you see the future around this.

    Thanks,
    Roberto.
