API Brokering


API Brokering is the process of transforming general purpose APIs from service providers into new APIs that are easier to consume by adding transformations that are specific to the business.

API Brokering is usually performed in one of these scenarios:

  • there are existing "legacy" technologies being used such as SOAP, SML, JMS, SQL, FTP, or straight TCP used for current access
  • these is a need for use of third-party APIs from public-service providers (e.g. Google Maps) or partners (e.g. third-party logistics providers)

The API Development for these APIs can involve complete rebuilding of new REST- or SOAP-style APIs, or utilizing a mediation technology such as a gateway to transform old interfaces.
