API Development

Hooking to Your Data and Processes from Anywhere

APIs (Application Programming Interface) allow programs to talk to each other through a standard programming interface. For example, APIs allow your sales people to send orders from Excel to your back-end sales system, your customers to see current support ticket updates in real-time, and even your new sales system to communicate with your old purchasing system. APIs mean you don’t need to buy new core systems or rebuild old systems.

In a 2013 article in Forbes, Mike Denning, security general manager, CA Technologies said “We use APIs every day, whether accessing flight data from our mobile device, using Google Maps from a hotel website or making payments online. There are billions of API calls a day and that number is going to increase with the proliferation of smart devices, ranging from vehicles, meters, TVs and other devices, as they start interacting over APIs.”

APIs are how the “Internet of Things” operates. And your business can take part by integrating your existing stand-alone systems or interfacing with the web.,. Let Pinnacle’s Microsoft Certified Professionals help you build connected systems for order entry, customer management, or systems integration.
