Custom API Build

Dataconversion are experts in the design and development of custom APIs to enable our clients to extend the functionality of their applications.

Our APIs can be built using a number of protocols including:

  • REST

  • JSON-RPC

  • XML-RPC

  • SOAP

API Integration

Two or more applications can be connected to each other via APIs. This allows one application to leverage the functionality in another application and store, display or re-process the returned data set.

Using APIs, we can connect individual elements of your technology systems to allow the separate systems to seamlessly exchange data.

API Security

When developing APIs to integrate with systems outside your organisation or on a WAN, we ensure that any additional security measures are part of the development effort. Rigorous testing and security checks are also performed prior to your API going live.

We employ the following practices to ensure maximum API security:

  • Tokens

  • Encryption and signatures

  • API gateways

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an API?2021-02-17T11:50:48+01:00

APIs (application programming interfaces) are information gateways that allow applications and services to communicate between one another.

How does an API work?2021-03-11T11:51:18+01:00

Data is typically stored in a database. The API is used to send information to or receive from information from another system in a pre-defined format.

The requested information usually originates in a database, but the databases do not communicate directly.  The API services the information requests and provides the responses to those requests:

  • The native API layer request information from the foreign API layer (the request).
  • The foreign API layer reads from the foreign database and replies to the native API layer (the response).
  • The native API layer writes to the native database through the data access layer (process of the response).

The API acts like a translator between two people that speak different languages.

A website or application makes an API call to request a set of data or information from a foreign system.

The way an API functions is often compared to how a waiter in a restaurant acts as the intermediary between you (the customer) and kitchen. The customer doesn’t need to know how the food will be made but they know they will get what they requested. It isn’t the making of the food, but the exchange of messages that is key.

What are some examples of an API in use?2021-03-11T11:52:37+01:00

Simple uses of an API include:

  • Food delivery services integrating a mapping plugin which uses the Google Maps API to display courier locations on websites and apps.
  • Weather data being displayed in outdoor activity apps.
  • Traffic data gathered from an external source being displayed in your real-time transportation application.

An API is the mechanism by which the information exchange is facilitated and can facilitate more complex processes in either the source or destination system.

They can help create automated workflows between individual internal software systems, greatly reducing duplication of effort and improving organisational efficiency.
