We engineer modern API's that allow our customers to develop products and integrate services

We construct scalable and secure APIs that serve your users

Overview

API based architecture

As an API development company that specializes in various API development services, we’re here to walk you through what an API is and why their API is essential in today’s technology landscape. Short for Automatic Programming Interface, an API is a method or set of instructions for computer programs to communicate with each other.

Scale your services

APIs are the backbone and driving force of modern web-based applications, and allow for applications to integrate with each other, and for users to efficiently make requests and receive data from back-end applications. Whether you’re using a mobile application to order a pair of shoes, or a website to book flights, chances are that you’re requesting data and information that’s delivered through one or more API’s.

Custom API development

Asymm’s API development services are comprehensive. As an API development company that builds full-stack web applications, we’re experienced with back-end development and API development for many diverse product types and use cases. Whether you need to build an API to serve content, integrate with another program or application, serve external customers, or support microservices within a larger application and product, our API development services can help design and plan the architecture and functionality for your API.

Reasons to develop APIs

Developing an API can be a strategic move for a company that wants to serve multiple applications or use cases with a single back-end development project. Companies that will benefit the most from developing a custom API generally have one or more of the following use cases and plans for applications and software:

Aimed to create better services

While this is not an exhaustive list of reasons to develop a custom API for your business use case, this should give you a good idea of some of the core reasons to hire an API development company for API development services.

API architecture

As an API development company with various API development services, we help companies think through and strategize API architectures and features for their unique development needs. Here are some of the following important aspects and features to think through when considering building a custom API:

Security is necessary when developing a custom API. Depending on who your API is being built for, whether it’s just paying customers, internal personnel, or anyone on the intern, building a permissions layer into your API is a great place to start. API authentication plays a critical role in API development, and we generally use services such as O-auth for proven performance and security when developing APIs for customers.

A powerful and versatile means to connect applications

Types of API’s and use cases

API’s have a wide range of use cases and corresponding complexity.

Accomplish any task

A very simple API might access a relational database and return relatively simple data in a standardized format using a JSON structure. While a more complex API, or a series of API’s and their services might help you purchase a flight, and automate, track, and update you with the status of your luggage once you’ve checked in for your flight. Some companies today develop “API first products” and sell their APIs for consumption by other companies using a subscription or rated model.

Develop scalable business models and B2B services

API focused companies are often categorized as offering infrastructure as a service (IAAS). Notable companies in this space include Stripe, Plaid, and other companies that take the development legwork out of tedious and time-consuming operations. These companies have developed their APIs to streamline operations for other companies to access, consume, and integrate into their own software.

Customized solutions

The value of APIs

API development companies create core products and allow customers to access their APIs for valuable data on a rated basis. An example of an API product could be a payroll API developed for companies to consume and customize into their own payroll workflows. With a product such as a payroll API, the customer would be able to leverage the payroll API to run payroll operations such as tax calculations and payments instead of developing customized payroll software for themselves.

Efficiency and innovation

API development companies spend years developing integrations, features, and edge-case support so their customers experience easy integration, scalability, and frictionless use with complex flows and customization. Other companies that develop APIs to serve only consumers like their customers or their internal teams can spend much less time on development and can get fast functionality on the timescale of months.

Functional API development

Functional API development is best understood as building a backend solution that features an API structure on the surface to allow for dynamic functionality, scaling, and distribution of data across several platforms and applications. Functional API development can be built with a wide range of programming languages and frameworks, but usually follows a defined set of rules and best practices to optimize security, authentication, performance, and formatting. Functional API’s can be built for a breadth of different businesses and use cases, whether it’s a programming interface to help a business manage inventory and scheduling, or a display of insurance quotes online to potential customers.

Content API development services

Content APIs are commonly used today for content-heavy front-end applications, whether that be a mobile application, web application, or desktop application. Content APIs are often coupled with technologies like a CMS (content management systems) and a static site generator or other type of website builder. Content APIs serve users on their preferred platform and are an efficient way to distribute cross-platform content with high speeds and low costs. Content APIs are best suited for companies that want to display large volumes of data on the web, such as publishing companies, streaming companies, content platforms, etc.

API integration development services

API integrations are the foremost way to integrate platforms and applications, and cross-sync data. API integrations have a wide range of use cases and are often performed when a specific application lacks functionality and can gain functionality from an external API, or when two applications need to work in tandem for a business solution. Common API integrations are used with ERP systems, CRM systems, custom software development to pre-made tools, Commerce systems, Payment processing systems and more.
