APIs design and development refers to the process of developing application programming interfaces (APIs) that expose data and application functionality for use by developers and users. APIs are important to modern organizations, adding new capabilities to everything from their operations and products to their partnership strategies. It is also important to any organization that wants to Digitally transform itself since APIs are the means to expose the organization’s internal applications functionalities to the Digital world.
