API first development is like building lego


API first. Futureproof

Within an API-first CMS, the frontend presentation layer and backend are decoupled from each other. Unlike a traditional CMS where these two interfaces are tied together, an API-first CMS has more flexibility and options for distributing content.

Instead of exclusively delivering content to a website or mobile device, an API-first CMS can deliver content to IoT devices such as smartwatches, digital assistants, retail displays and digital kiosks.

Connect everything

APIs connect business processes, software services, content and data with each other and the outside world in a simple and secure way. An application programming interface (API) is a collection of definitions that allow computer programs to communicate with each other.

Versatile as lego

APIs help speed up innovation. APIs allow data from different systems to be brought together and used for new applications. This allows you to better respond to customer needs and developments in the market.

What is API first?

API stands for application programming interface. This is a software interface that allows two applications to communicate with each other. An API-first approach is based on a microservice architecture, where applications work as a collection of small services. These microservices work independently and are individually extendable. In this way, functions and systems can easily be connected to each other.

Why API first?

Digital ecosystems are much more than just a website. Brands want to serve customers within a collection of digital touchpoints such as websites, web shops, apps, marketplaces and social media. By using APIs, content can be used on any platform.

API’s & Headless

By opening up data and content via APIs, it is possible to separate the front end and back end of your web application; we call this headless. This enables you to easily manage content for complex web applications. APIs work as a service layer that distribute data and content to any desired touchpoint.
