What does an API do?


  • APIs are integral to the way in which applications work and communicate with each other. It is the mechanism through which two different software elements are able to work together cohesively. Data can be extracted and shared via APIs.  


Why are APIs useful?


  • They allow businesses and companies to open up their services to external third parties. These third parties use APIs to gain access to data and functionality via the APIs, which in turn helps create new experiences for the end-user. APIs are incredibly powerful and power many of your favourite apps that you use every day. APIs are used for internal systems, integrations, embedded content and data sharing.
