What is an API?
An API (Application Programming Interface) is a set of programming code, composed of functions and procedures, that allow data transmission between one software product and another. Whether or not you are familiar with the term API, you most likely have used it - and probably more than once. Today's digital world is reliant on the use of API to connect businesses and consumers (referred to as B2C), but also between businesses (known as B2B).
