As artificial intelligence (AI) has shifted from a movie concept to a real-world phenomenon, it’s become clear that AI will change how we do business. Smart factories, connected shop floors, and supply chain automation are already commonplace, yet manufacturing and shipping are not the only sectors adopting AI and machine learning (ML). AI is also revolutionizing software development in surprising ways.

Modern business runs on software. This involves storing business data, and moving that data from place to place. In the old days, software stored the data in a siloed fashion. This meant it was only available in one place, cutoff from the rest of the world. Companies struggled to pull data from different locations. Combining it in meaningful ways was difficult. This isolated data only provided a fraction of its potential value. In modern applications, the data wants to be free.

Data migration is something that all businesses will have to deal with at some point. Maybe a high level of growth has meant that you have too much data and need a larger server. Or maybe you want to move to a new cloud-based system. Regardless of the specifics, all modern businesses will know the power of unlocking data.

With low-code tools on the rise, building an Application Programming Interface (API) is simpler than ever. Given the ease of development, it is easy to overlook potential problems. Taking a bit more time in the design phase can ensure the API is truly useful, secure, scalable, and stable. Here, we’ll discuss the top ten most common API development mistakes to avoid.

When it comes to enterprise apps vs. microapps, most distinguish microapps as “tiny processes that perform targeted actions in a larger, more complex enterprise app.” While this definition is mostly true, it doesn’t give you the bigger picture of how microapps improve how your team members interact with enterprise-scale applications. Microapps can dramatically streamline workflows across an organization.

As companies strive to differentiate themselves through speed and agility, a well-planned API strategy becomes crucial. However, as demands and customer needs evolve, an API catalogue can quickly become overwhelming. While Kong is a popular tool for organizing API development and management, there are Kong alternatives to consider that may better fit your specific needs.

About a decade ago, cloud computing became the norm in enterprise IT deployments. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Integrated Platform as a Service (iPaaS) vendors were fiercely competing to deliver the private and public cloud products that would power the next generation of app development, processing, storage, and networking. And since APIs are at the heart of cloud computing, the race was on to deliver the API that developers and sysadmins would most favor. The Cloud API War had begun.

Application programming interfaces (APIs), especially web service APIs, have completely transformed the software development industry. Surveys of CIOs and other enterprise tech leaders in the past 12 months show incredible growth in the number of API consumers, with almost all surveyed agreeing that APIs are a component of their strategies going forward.

Storing information in a relational database and sharing it via a RESTful API is a very common scenario these days. Depending on your RDBMS (relational database management system), this may take a lot of development effort. One solution that attempts to simplify the process is the PostgREST web server add-on for PostgreSQL. If your organization uses the PostgreSQL database, PostgREST quickly adds basic CRUD (create, read, update, delete) functions in an easy-to-use RESTful HTTP interface.

As technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, the importance of staying up-to-date on the latest developments in the realm of APIs becomes increasingly vital. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is by attending conferences that focus specifically on API-related topics. In the upcoming year of 2023, there are a plethora of such events being held across the globe, each offering valuable insights and opportunities for networking and professional development.

As a best practice, you should take care to provide clients with the minimal API access privileges required to successfully complete their tasks. DreamFactory's role based access control manager ensures administrators never leave your data sources unnecessarily vulnerable, offering a point-and-click interface for quickly defining and reviewing privileges. In this video we'll walk through the configuration of a role-based access control, demonstrating how a client's API access privileges can be easily updated so as to allow only read access to a select set of API endpoints.

Serverless Computing is considered to be the fourth wave of computing where x86 servers, virtual machines, and containers represented the first three generations. With this new paradigm, developers can squarely focus on the code and without the need to deal with the underlying infrastructure. They never have to plan the number of servers, amount of storage, and the network topology of deployments. Since the platform deals with one function at a time, and functions are the fundamental deployment units, this model is often called Functions as a Service (FaaS).

Never Build an API Again. An enterprise-grade API as a service platform available in the cloud or on-premise. Generate database APIs instantly to build applications faster.

Integrate any SQL or NoSQL database, file storage system, or external HTTP or SOAP service and DreamFactory instantly generates a flexible, comprehensive, and fully documented REST API endpoint that’s ready to use. Focus on building your applications, not hand-coding APIs for every new development project.

Benefits:

  • Instant APIs without code. Eliminate the biggest bottleneck in modern IT. Launch your project in weeks rather than months. DreamFactory instantly creates a secure, standardized, reusable, fully documented, and live REST API.
  • Manage your data portfolio. Connect Salesforce to SQL Server, or your ERP to AWS S3. Transform and mask data along the way. Create reports, analytics, and alerts. Empower teams to retrieve and distribute data on demand.
  • Secure your data with layered controls. Secure every API endpoint with Role-Based Access Controls, SSO Authentication, JWT, CORS, OAuth, and Active Directory. Deploy behind firewalls and in air-gapped environments.
  • Modernize legacy applications. Integrate legacy technology into cutting-edge applications, extending technology lifecycles and derisking legacy system replacements.

REST API Automation and API Management made simple.
