Unlock the power of real-time data exchange with API (Application Programming Interface) connectivity! API is a powerful tool for synchronizing web and Cloud SaaS applications, which adds new capabilities and possibilities to the traditional electronic data interchange. Real-time synchronous connections can handle data transfer in less than a second and take care of multiple requests in both directions at the same time. By enabling this level of automation companies can increase their efficiency and improve response time to customers, resulting in more sales and better customer service.

What is an API?

APIs are mechanisms that enable two software components to communicate with each other using a set of definitions and protocols. For example, the weather bureau’s software system contains daily weather data. The weather app on your phone “talks” to this system via APIs and shows you daily weather updates on your phone.

What does API stand for?

API stands for Application Programming Interface. In the context of APIs, the word Application refers to any software with a distinct function. Interface can be thought of as a contract of service between two applications. This contract defines how the two communicate with each other using requests and responses. Their API documentation contains information on how developers are to structure those requests and responses.

How do APIs work?

API architecture is usually explained in terms of client and server. The application sending the request is called the client, and the application sending the response is called the server. So in the weather example, the bureau’s weather database is the server, and the mobile app is the client. 

What are the benefits of REST APIs?

REST APIs offer four main benefits:

1. Integration 

APIs are used to integrate new applications with existing software systems. This increases development speed because each functionality doesn’t have to be written from scratch. You can use APIs to leverage existing code.

2. Innovation 

Entire industries can change with the arrival of a new app. Businesses need to respond quickly and support the rapid deployment of innovative services. They can do this by making changes at the API level without having to re-write the whole code.

3. Expansion

APIs present a unique opportunity for businesses to meet their clients’ needs across different platforms. For example, maps API allows map information integration via websites, Android,iOS, etc. Any business can give similar access to their internal databases by using free or paidAPIs.

4. Ease of maintenance

The API acts as a gateway between two systems. Each system is obliged to make internal changes so that the API is not impacted. This way, any future code changes by one party do not impact the other party.
