If you have worked mainly with REST APIs, there’s a chance you might not be acquainted with asynchronous APIs and their protocols, such as WebSockets, Kafka, and AMQP. Asynchronous APIs enable you to manage multiple requests simultaneously to communicate between services effectively. Many similar tasks can be performed using both these APIs; however, some use cases can be managed better with a particular API.

When two different software applications want to join forces by sharing information, it’s not always a perfect union. Different database structures, programming languages, and network protocols tend to complicate the process. So how can two applications exchange data in a way that they both understand?In the modern era of cloud computing and service-oriented architectures, web service APIs have emerged as the solution to that problem.

The past two decades have seen enterprise IT emerge and grow, bringing many innovative technologies into the workplace. Every year that passes promises IT system upgrades rendering some systems and programs obsolete much sooner than in tech’s early days. Yet some older hardware and software remain in use. These outdated systems, known as legacy systems, put companies at a huge disadvantage compared with competitors embracing modern technology.

Whether you’re working in the marketing department or the operations department, you’ve probably heard a lot about APIs and API integrations. These have become the “buzz” terms of IT departments in recent years as more enterprises embrace the trend toward digital transformation. That being said, if you’re not a developer or don’t work in the IT department, you might not have a clear picture of what APIs or API integrations are.

If you’re at all familiar with APIs, you know that REST APIs are the main API used, particularly when it comes to microservices and their applications. Despite its popularity, REST is not the only architecture available. In some cases, gRPC is also used, though it can be quite specific. Whether you’re trying to figure out what “gRPC” means or you’re considering gRPC as an alternative to REST APIs for your next development project, this guide will help you understand.

In the age of technology, businesses are experiencing a digital renaissance. Customers are interacting with companies through mobile devices and social media platforms more than ever, and they expect a higher level of service. This has forced businesses to re-evaluate how they operate to meet customer demands. One such way companies are changing the way they work is by adopting the benefits of microservices. The question is, why are microservices so helpful to modern enterprises?

Running an API call as a scheduled task is a common need for any business. Whether you need to synchronize data between two endpoints or regularly pull information from one system to another, it makes sense to automate the process rather than remembering to do it manually every time. As sysadmins everywhere know — you can schedule API calls with Cron.

In the early days of web application development, monolithic frontends and backends were perfectly fine. But the emergence of the cloud has changed expectations. Developers want to build applications that exchange information with APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). Business owners want faster development times. End users expect zero downtime. This new paradigm enabled the rise of service-oriented architecture (SOA) and, along with it, microservices and web services.

Every day, humans produce 2.5 quintillion bytes of data. Just to put that number into perspective, there are 18 zeros in a quintillion. Unifying data can allow you to take advantage of it and benefit your business. The vast majority of organizations have collected nearly endless amounts of data. Yet, these same organizations are starving for information that can be used to make more informed decisions. Information may be stored in databases that don’t talk to each other.

As a best practice, you should take care to provide clients with the minimal API access privileges required to successfully complete their tasks. DreamFactory's role based access control manager ensures administrators never leave your data sources unnecessarily vulnerable, offering a point-and-click interface for quickly defining and reviewing privileges. In this video we'll walk through the configuration of a role-based access control, demonstrating how a client's API access privileges can be easily updated so as to allow only read access to a select set of API endpoints.

Serverless Computing is considered to be the fourth wave of computing where x86 servers, virtual machines, and containers represented the first three generations. With this new paradigm, developers can squarely focus on the code and without the need to deal with the underlying infrastructure. They never have to plan the number of servers, amount of storage, and the network topology of deployments. Since the platform deals with one function at a time, and functions are the fundamental deployment units, this model is often called Functions as a Service (FaaS).

Never Build an API Again. An enterprise-grade API as a service platform available in the cloud or on-premise. Generate database APIs instantly to build applications faster.

Integrate any SQL or NoSQL database, file storage system, or external HTTP or SOAP service and DreamFactory instantly generates a flexible, comprehensive, and fully documented REST API endpoint that’s ready to use. Focus on building your applications, not hand-coding APIs for every new development project.

Benefits:

  • Instant APIs without code. Eliminate the biggest bottleneck in modern IT. Launch your project in weeks rather than months. DreamFactory instantly creates a secure, standardized, reusable, fully documented, and live REST API.
  • Manage your data portfolio. Connect Salesforce to SQL Server, or your ERP to AWS S3. Transform and mask data along the way. Create reports, analytics, and alerts. Empower teams to retrieve and distribute data on demand.
  • Secure your data with layered controls. Secure every API endpoint with Role-Based Access Controls, SSO Authentication, JWT, CORS, OAuth, and Active Directory. Deploy behind firewalls and in air-gapped environments.
  • Modernize legacy applications. Integrate legacy technology into cutting-edge applications, extending technology lifecycles and derisking legacy system replacements.

REST API Automation and API Management made simple.
