What’s the use of APIs (Application Programming Interface )?
Simply put, it allows one piece of software to make use of the functionality of, or data available to, another. It provides a consistent, programmatic method for accessing a resource; it is simply a structured way of exposing functionality.
What exactly can it do and what are the advantages?
APIs make it easy to efficiently share data and processes. As a business owner you can benefit from it whether it is improving your existing your existing website, creating a marketing dashboard, or just adding automation, efficiency, or new data integration. Often, needs change over time and APIs help to anticipate changes. When working with this technology, data migration is supported better, and the information is reviewed more closely. In short, APIs make service provision more flexible.
