The term API stands for Application Programming Interface. An application programming interface (API) is a protocol intended to be used as an interface by software components to communicate with each other.
Enterprise API provides users with programmatic access to collect, import, export and run reports on data. Enterprise API’s provide access to various corporate data for use in a variety of applications.
Similar to Enterprise APIs, telephony API’s (telecom API) enables data dissemination to third parties over a defined interface, protocols, and procedures. However, telecom networks inherently contain a lot of data for and about their users, devices, usage, behaviors, status, and configuration. Telecom Network APIs capitalize on existing network infrastructure to create a vast array of business opportunities for carriers worldwide.
Taken together, Enterprise and Telecom APIs enable a variety of new and unique business models, including carrier/enterprise branded application stores, mashups, two sided business models, and developer communities.
There is an API Marketplace powered by companies such as mashape and Mulesoft that act as broker between API companies, data sources, and developers to facilitate the development of many new and innovative applications and services.
The service also addresses the following key topics related to the API ecosystem:
