Use Case

API Management

As business and the web become increasingly interconnected, API Management has never been more important. Building and maintaining APIs is necessary to keep your business’s connectivity up-to-date, functional, and valuable. Read on to learn how Backendless makes it easy to streamline your API creation and hosting process to avoid the pitfalls of haphazard API development.

Consolidate Your APIs

The Problem:
As your application has grown, your tech stack has expanded and changed while developers have come and gone. Over time, your APIs have ended up hosted all over, on different platforms, services and servers, leaving you vulnerable to loss of access and loss of code. Worse, with APIs spread all over, your team is forced to recreate the same code time and again for new APIs that could have easily been built on top of a single foundation.

The Solution:
Backendless makes it easy to bring all your APIs together into one consolidated platform. We give you the ability to import your APIs from a variety of sources, then once they’re in our platform, you can easily modify, combine, or create new APIs right from your browser, continuous integration system, or developer workstations. Backendless places no limitations on the number of team members that can work on an application, which means your team will be building upon the same foundation at all times.

Export Your APIs

The Problem:
Creating APIs may be a time-consuming process, and creating API docs just adds to that. You may have many APIs already hosted with an API service management platform, which makes transitioning to a new platform feel like a hassle. But having your API services all in one place sure would be nice…

The Solution:
Backendless makes it easy to export your APIs and connect them with virtually any API service platform. That means, if you want to use Backendless to build and test your API services and then publish them elsewhere, we make it simple to do just that. Backendless can automatically generate documentation for any APIs you create in a variety of formats to best suit your needs.

API Marketplace

The Problem:
When your organization has multiple development teams working on multiple projects, there’s a good chance those teams will be duplicating their efforts. If those teams are siloed, however, often your company is wasting time and money on redundant code. You need a way to share and reuse assets safely and securely across your organization.

The Solution:
Backendless provides a private, centralized repository for all of your code and logic so your teams can easily share assets such as code, logic and services with each other. By adding code and logic to your organization’s marketplace registry/directory, your team is able to access those assets from wherever they are and easily add them to their own project, saving time and money by dramatically reducing redundancies.
