API and Microservices, the necessary union

API (Application Programming Interface) is the gateway that connects disparate applications. It permits applications to communicate and transfer information to one another and define how they should interact.

Microservices are pieces of software (with isolated functions) that do a single, tiny, independent part of a bigger application.Microservices have some type of API and are often connected via APIs.

Most organizations depend heavily on APIs and microservices to build and connect applications, a primary requirement for their digital transformation.

Enabling digital transformation through API and Microservices

To stay ahead in the competition, you need to provide superior products and services that are faster, better, and affordable compared to your competitors. Your ability to use smart data, business processes, agility, and capability to change continually according to market trends can put you ahead of the competition.

Microservices architecture and APIs to the rescue

Microservices turn the traditional approach to software delivery in a completely new way. Instead of a single massive effort to build, integrate, and test the entire software, a microservices approach allows the same functionalities to be delivered as discrete lightweight services. They interact with the business through a set of well-defined APIs.

APIs increase the points of presence (PoP) of the products and services. As PoPs increase, it creates the need for an architecture that would scale and enable the incremental delivery of these PoPs. Microservices architectural technique enables web scale architecture and incremental delivery of capabilities.

In either case, the microservices approach works very well because it enables smaller changes to be delivered incrementally. It thereby speeds up delivery and avoids disruptions in service. As a result, Cloud or SAAS microservice providers can help organizations launch new functionalities and features quickly and easily. As the mobile and browser digital applications have to be exceptionally dynamic and require quick changes, microservices prove to be tremendously valuable here also.

Successful API and microservices implementation

Technology-powered innovation and business strategy has become the standard model for enterprises. Correctly done business APIs, can drive your digital advancement, while microservices-based architecture will deliver zero downtime experience.
