 Intro

What is an API?

An Application Programming Interface (API) is a way for separate software components to interact by providing protocols that allow them to communicate seamlessly. More simply, the API sets the rules and manages the data transfers as an intermediary. So essentially, the API is facilitating the exchange of data between applications, systems, mobile devices, and apps. A developer does not have to know all of the complexities of an organization’s application or system, but rather the predefined functions to interact and execute the desired action. APIs enable quick and secure real-time access to data and business processes with the simplest interface possible within a preexisting framework.

INTEGRATION

APIs are truly the cornerstone of automation strategy; serving as the interface that allows system integration to automate processes and increase efficiency. An organization can exploit this powerful tool with seamless functionality between databases, CRM systems, accounting systems, payment gateways, and e-commerce systems to name a few.

There are three types of API releases. Private or internal APIs, which are as the name describes, designed specifically for internal or proprietary use within an organization. A partner API is intended for use between business partners or approved third parties. Then you have public APIs that are available for use by the public. A developer can access a description, uses, formatting, restrictions, and limitations of an API within it documentation files.
