Weather you have an existing data storage or you thought about an application or system, future proofing it starts here.
Future proofing means that the data you want will be exposed to a client, lets say a web client (web page).
In 1 year, creating a mobile application which will use your data, will be as simple as replicating the web code in the native programming language, or not, as the API access will ensure that the data the web application accesses, will be available to the mobile application also. The same logic is there, only the client interface changes.
An API, given from its name, will interface whatever application or system you want to develop with your data storage.
The security being baked in, will make sure that your clients will not harm your data.
If you do not have a data storage, we will be happy to assist with its design, if you already have a data storage an you would like to build around it an API we will be happy to design and implement it. The API management side is covered by us.
