What is 3rd party
API integration?

Third party APIs are provided by external parties — such as Twilio, Twitter, or Google — to allow developers to access their functionality. API (Application Programming Interface) gives programmers the ability to connect their custom applications with external systems either in network or cloud. This helps speed up development time and cut costs.

Our API integration projects aim to save you money by reducing development time and cut costs.

3rd Party API Integration

Review and assessment

First, let us assess the API documentation of different providers and suggest the best fit. We then define the target architecture of apps and help refactor monolithic apps if needed.

API documentation

Standardized API development

We expertise in a large variety of APIs using SOAP, REST and XML-RPC as well as JSON and other protocols. We also help develop APIs for mobile, desktop browser apps, databases, and intranet systems.

Standardized API development

APIs designed for scale

Our APIs only expose the right pieces of your applications securely and efficiently. Evolutionary architecture gives flexibility for incremental additions. APIs are made to be platform independent so that any app can call the APIs.

FAQs

Custom APIs allow businesses to manage software-to-software integration between different apps smoothly. For example, the ability to share your favorite Spotify song on Instagram stories is due to the power of custom APIs. It has alleviated the way we assemble our applications. By making use of one another’s functionality, apps have enhanced the way they communicate with each other. In modern app development services, custom APIs play an important role since they allow us to innovate faster.

In general, businesses have their own specific requirements. Using the readily available APIs won’t be sufficient to cater to their own unique integration needs. This is where businesses are required to develop custom APIs that fits their requirement and helps in better product development.
The 3rd party API integration is the integration of APIs developed by a 3rd party (Facebook, Twitter) in one's custom software to gain partial access to services, features or functionalities for better business process.

A 3rd party API is an API developed by a 3rd party. By integrating these APIs, 1st parties can gain partial access to the features and functionalities of 3rd party services. Next time when you book an Uber, take a close look at the Maps. These maps are available due to the 3rd party integration of Google Maps API with Uber.
There are 7 types of APIs, however, the most commonly used are web services APIs. These are a piece of a software or system available that provides access to its services through a dedicated URL over the internet. These types of APIs pass the information in a way that is easy for other software to understand or parse. For example, Flicker API http://www.flickr.com/services/api/.

Web service APIs uses HTTP or HTTPS for information exchange. Whenever the client software wants to communicate, it sends an HTTP request which is returned with a HTTP response from the API. During these requests, the information is passed in the URL itself. The common types of web services API are

- SOAP
- XML-RPC
- REST
- JSON-RPC

However, the widely used web service API is REST. REST APIs are known for providing faster communication due to less usage of internet bandwidth.
To deliver API development services with the user-centric approach, we have divided the whole process into simple steps:

1: Understand the API’s purpose and audience
2: Align your Team
3: Develop your API Incrementally
4: Define KPIs
5: Collecting and Acting on Feedback
