An API works with queries and commands which are given to a database to retrieve and edit information. A query, or a request for information, comes from a certain software program and then you can enter a command. An example of what an API system actually does is when someone searches for an available meeting room in the Amsterdam area, all available locations are shown and users have the option to directly make a reservation for the room.
In addition, APIs can also put authentication and authorization restrictions in place. This means, for example, that a particular user can’t access all data or perform a particular action at all. So, with APIs you can set certain rules.
ID2Bytes creates APIs in both directions. We can create APIs so that your system works with the data of another system, but we can also integrate APIs into software.
