API and System Integration

What is an API?

An API or “Application Programming Interface” is the way different applications talk to each other. Effectively an agreement that allows the 2 applications to share of data, normally across the internet.

Reading APIs

To access other people’s APIs your application or website will need access (e.g. an account), make the appropriate requests and read/process the responses.

Your Own API

The flip side of the coin is to provide an API so that other applications can access your data. This needs the appropriate security and coding to ensure the right people get access to the data you want them to, and no more.

Leverage Existing Systems

System Integration is the process of bringing together disparate systems into one shared system or combining data from multiple systems into one.
