It’ll allow you programmers to troubleshoot your API implementations, find out if you’re hitting our limits, and let you see overall usage by day. There’s even a handy graph to indicate any usage spikes.

Don’t know what an API is? It stands for "application programming interface. "It’s a way for programmers to link other applications (blogs, CRMs, CMS, eCommerce, etc) with MailChimp. You do your thing, and let MailChimp handle email delivery, tracking, and list management. Powerful stuff.
