Did you know that about 90% of enterprise companies use API in their cloud integration? Enterprises will utilize a variety of API tasks, including messaging, database integration, and storage components. API’s are becoming highly important in businesses, but what exactly are they?
In this article, we’ll breakdown API concepts and how organizations use API to increase their day-to-day efficiency.
What exactly are APIs?
Application Programming Interfaces, a.k.a APIs, are tools that allow software developers to create and utilize programs. The advantages of APIs are that they can be used to save time when creating software. For example, Microsoft Windows uses API to allow developers to create a rich application and better user experience. APIs allow Windows to showcase a new form, perform an action (like when a user clicks a button), and to read and write data.
