Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are essential building blocks to enhance the way organizations are exchanging data both internally and externally. APIs provide a means of quickly connecting you with your network to automate information flows or business processes.
Youredi provides managed full lifecycle API management services: we create, manage, and monitor your APIs. We build the API wrapper around any protocol, like HTTP, SOAP, REST, or FTP/SFTP. As your business requirements change, so does the specs of your APIs. We help you to implement the changes through versioning your APIs.
API Management platforms are great for publishing and managing APIs so that your customers and community can easily connect to your services.
On the other hand, if you want to use APIs for more complex processes, you want to use an iPaaS, as it combines the best tools from both integration platforms and API management platforms.
iPaaS can be used for publishing APIs, consuming APIs, or building mashup API's from existing ones. In addition to API management, you'll get all the features of a complete integration platform, including tools for data transformation, validation, enrichment and transmission to any business application. iPaaS can also function as the initiating or receiving party in any integration scenario, on-premises, in the cloud or hybrid.
