Do you ever wonder how information travels from one point to the next? Or how your business or favorite retail store receives your online order, processes it, and ships it to your door? Well an API (Application Programing Interface) is a messaging format that allows data to be transmitted from one system to another in near real time, allowing for smoother application integrations, faster decision making, and better business insights.
Think about the API as the waiter in a restaurant waiting to take your order to the kitchen. API is that messenger (The Waiter) that connects you (The Customer) to the kitchen (The Retail store or Data Center) to which they then receive your order and send back with the waiter the information you have requested.
Now, you must be wondering why do you care about API. Well, here are 6 reasons why you should leverage this tool in your business which can put some of your limited and valuable resources back in your hands.
