What Are Custom API Integration Services and How Can They Help a Business
By Pratik Prajapati
According to Wikipedia, API – Application programming interface is “A set of subroutine definitions, protocols, and tools for building application software. In general terms, it is a set of clearly defined methods of communication between various software components.”
The API is nothing but a set of protocols or instructions to connect two applications and share the operations. Application refers to software or computers and devices. Integrating an application with your application is better for functionality enhancement and business expansion. This software to software connectivity could be either web-based applications or mobile applications. However, API and UI are different.
Third-party API interfaces are beneficial for businesses as they allow devices and applications to communicate and connect easily. There are more than 16,500 APIs in the market.
The typical example of an API is the Google Location API. Payment gateway like Paypal, CCAvenue or Ecommerce Application like Flipkart, Amazon will have their own set of API’s for integration.
