The impact of Application Programmming Interfaces on businesses

API have been around since the 1960s. It is a topic which is commonly discussed among software developers but it is worth learning about about because it impacts the daily lives of ordinary people. APIs are built to execute repetitive tasks in the background of systems which connect devices, databases and apps without us even noticing.

Connectivity in the modern digital world has driven demand for solutions which are optimised through APIs. Daily activities such as transportation through e-hailing and navigating a journey through GPS enabled applications are supported by a range of APIs. Businesses are increasingly considering the importance of APIs in innovation for modern customer centric products and services. Industries are emerging as immediate beneficiaries of the efficiencies that come with API use in the streamlining of business operations.
