What is an API?
An API (Application Programming Interface) is a set of methods for communication between different software components that exchange functions and procedures.
APIs can provide the set of information needed to build an application. Normally, all APIs are accompanied by tutorials, manuals and best practice rules to simplify implementation of an interface and make it easier to use by other software, allowing access and exchange of information that permit one application makes use of other remaining independent. APIs are the only way to provide secure access for software developers to work with external programs and services, being a key piece in the development of collaborative digital environments.
All HOP Ubiquitous products have open APIs to contribute to the development of collaborative software.
