It’s no longer a question of if Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) should be incorporated or not. In this competitive landscape, brands are introducing API integration as a standard procedure to provide flawless customer experience. API can integrate various software components, extending the functionality of an application with new integrations. This is an absolute necessity in widening the range of transactions across various channels and devices such as IoT, mobile, etc. In ecommerce, APIs allow complete customizations with regard to “headless” solutions that are more robust and also allow you to evolve customer experience pushing it to new heights.
With a proven track record, GraphQL, the brainchild of Facebook, is what brands are obsessed with nowadays. GraphQL, with its enhanced efficiency and flexibility, is the API of choice for most brands as the better version of REST, an API to fetch data from a server. REST, with its various limitations has lost its lead to GraphQL in a highly competitive landscape. GraphQL, a Query Language for APIs, is the set standard for APIs, preferred for its efficient data transfer capability over network, providing customizations with regard to data access and a multitude of frontend frameworks, allowing rapid updates and iterations.
GraphQL is the revolutionary API with numerous advantages such as presence of auto-generated and strongly-typed schema, elimination of the problems of over-fetching and under-fetching of data from servers, faster product development, easy composition of GraphQL APIs through schema stitching, delivering enriched open-source platform along with growing community, etc.
