IT teams are always wanting to build new applications enabling specific functions for the ease of processes or customers. Sometimes, to balance projects, they allow distributed teams to work on focused targets using reusable assets, templates, and best practices. While decentralizing and democratizing application development helps, managing security can be a task for strategizing different Lines of Business (LoBs) and functional business partners. Enter microservices.

Using a low-code platform as the back-end for a single page application (SPA) is a nice combination — the SPA can be hosted anywhere, the API is quick and easy to develop, and they can evolve independently of each other e.g. if you need a native app just develop the UI and use the same API.

SOAP, being a mature technology, has an extensive and often differently interpreted standard set. This makes it an excellent tool for corporate users to manipulate data into their precise requirements and technology stack. However, for public consumption, this causes issues that sometimes are difficult or impossible to solve without changing code. A good example here is that SOAP is allowed to define the same type in some standard interpretations in different XSD files.

REST and (the newer) GraphQL APIs are the core technologies behind the vast most of today’s integrations. These APIs allow external developers to tap into the functionality of the major platforms and build in their custom functionality to suit their needs. The fundamental difference is that REST is an architectural design framework based on HTTP, while GraphQL is a query syntax that is not transport-dependent.
