When do companies need an API?

As companies grow, develop and react to the marketplace, it’s normal for a disparate collection of databases, applications, customer-facing solutions and other digital and physical assets to be adopted. Some of them will be essential to the running of the business; others will be nice-to-haves.

But in almost all cases, they will have been developed in isolation, whether that be bespoke or off the shelf, and the original developers may not have considered the need to integrate with a particular set of applications because it would be impossible to cater to the thousands of potential integration permutations.

The API’s job is to bridge the gap between the two systems, so that system X can read and understand the data and use it to power system Y.

Typical uses include

  • Letting an ecommerce website read live stock data from a warehouse
  • Allowing a mobile app to show information from a website’s database
  • Enabling a new business solution to benefit from legacy data in another solution
