Web services, Integrations and purpose built APIs are the backbone of most modern applications, yes, even mobile apps often require some sort of "backend". Our approach to constructing these systems is thorough, we consider not only the core functionality, but also: Developer Experience, Lean & Speedy Endpoints, and Service re-use.
In general, backend services are responsible for much of the heavy lifting that occurs behind the scenes. This could be anything from interacting with a database all the way to advanced machine learning routines. For some cases a fully custom set of backend services may be appropriate, however, that's not always the case! Why would we re-invent the wheel if there are already great designs for us to use?
It's quite common to find a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product that someone else has created which can be integrated (usually with tiered pricing) into your project to accomplish a core task. We can help you to evaluate all of your options, using our Research and Development skills we can create detailed Proof-of-Concept (PoC) projects for potential SaaS products as well as custom development.
REST, GraphQL, WebSocket, Sockets, Message Queues; these are just a few of the many ways that applications communicate with one another. One of the more common types of communication is using HTTP2 with a RESTful architectual style. Communicating between a website or mobile app is a breeze when using web services.
Purpose Built API
Application Programming Interfaces (API) are the mechanism which developers leverage to simplify the communication between services and accomplish goals within a project. If you have a specific need, we can build an API to help you accomplish the task and allow other applications to re-use the same logic without starting from scratch.
Do you already have existing infrastructure or have a requirement to use a specific type of application in your project? We can build custom solutions that allow you to integrate with almost any requirement.
