What Is an API

API stands for Application Programming Interface and refers to a set of protocols, standards, and tools developers use to integrate different applications. In plain words, they are specific types of software interfaces that connect applications and ensure they can collaborate.

APIs are essential in today’s digital world, as they are the bridges that connect different systems. This allows you to integrate different tools and software to better meet your requirements and enhance your operations.

API Benefits for Your Business

Developers, software experts, and companies all over the world know that APIs are crucial to building a solid digital infrastructure for doing business.

Extended functionality

Through APIs, you can seamlessly connect your systems with other software, extending your functionality without the need to develop the features yourself.

Seamless data collection

APIs also allow you to connect your internal systems (such as your CRM) to different platforms (such as social media) for gathering data.

Increased automation

You can use APIs to easily add new tools, thus unlocking the possibility of automating even more of your manual tasks.

Enhanced customization

Given the endless possibilities unlocked by APIs, you can completely customize your digital infrastructure with your personalized combination of tools.

Better customer experience

By customizing and automating your operations through APIs, you’ll also be able to offer a more sophisticated experience to customers using your systems.

Cost savings

Using APIs lets you integrate existing apps to get new capabilities. Thus, you won’t have to develop the features you’re missing from scratch, as you’ll always be able to add third-party software that has them.

Why Develop Your Own API

As a quick online search can show you, there are tons of APIs available, many of which are supported by big names like Google and Microsoft. That could make you wonder — why should you develop your own API? After all, you can improve your tech stack by using existing APIs, so going into API development might feel pointless.

However, there are plenty of reasons to build your own API. By developing an API, you can increase the adoption of your services across the board, improve your connection to other systems, unlock new revenue streams, and even set the foundations to develop new software. All of that depends on your business strategy.

However, there are certain scenarios where building an API seems like the best move:

  • You have a data-heavy website that needs to load data quickly.
  • You need to access your data through different devices in different locations.
  • You want to provide a new data-centered service.
  • You want to give your customers direct access to your data.
  • You want to build an app through API-driven development.
