What Is API Integration

An Application Programming Interface (API) allows enterprise systems to interact with each other. API integration services are communication protocols over which data can be shared and functionality can be leveraged. Business systems cannot operate in isolation. They need to integrate seamlessly with other internal and external systems to align business processes and make informed business decisions.

How Can API Services Help Business

Changing customer demands, 24x7 availability, expectations of enhanced business agility, strict compliance requirements are some of the factors that bring increased complexity to business operations. Businesses can use API integration services to leverage data and functionality to achieve their business goals -

Streamline Internal Operations

APIs provide connections between different systems. Different applications can communicate directly with each other, thus lowering the need for human intervention. Repetitive tasks and standard processes can be completed using API integration. FOr example, customer support representatives can get information about a customer and related transactions with minimum effort before resolving issues easily. They need not access another system or type in commands.

Improve interconnectivity among enterprise systems and with third party applications

Multiple data sources and systems provide data and functionality for giving the right experience to the end user. APIs ensure that systems interact with one another and with third party applications so that the needs of the end user are fulfilled. For example, many websites offer sign up options through social media accounts such as Facebook or Google+. This is possible due to API integration

Manage Compliance Requirements

API integration services are the most cost effective way to ensure business processes follow regulatory compliance. For example, there are stringent regulations on secure data transmission and storage. Companies can use APIs to safely and securely access data and provide access to company data.

Provide better developer and end user experiences

Developers can work with third party APIs to build applications suited to their organization/ project requirements. In some cases, the company exposes its APIs to external developers who then build products that support the business. Lastly, APIs are also sold along with the software application or product. The client can use the API to build his own integrations.

  • The API has to be secure. Authorization checks must be made when an application is accessing the API. IT should request for authentication information as well. The API should be able to handle injection bugs. It should be able to avoid access to sensitive data without relevant permissions.
  • APIs should adhere to standards like HTTP and REST so that they are developer-friendly and easily understood.
  • API should be able to report and display errors clearly. It should also describe the reason for the error. This will help developers to complete their tasks thoroughly.
  • The API should provide solid documentation that programmers can use to develop effective applications.
