What is a Unified API?

Last updated

A Unified API is an abstraction layer that easily handles communication with many different APIs and backend data models. You can think of a Unified API as an airport hub that maintains relationships with airlines and helps route passengers to their destination of choice. The beauty of a Unified API is its ability to get many integrations at once, while maintaining consistent API design and developer experience. Examples of popular Unified APIs include Stripe and Twilio.

Makini’s Unified API aggregates providers across EAM/CMMS, ERP, and WMS categories, offering a single endpoint to areas like assets, work orders, purchase orders, locations, shipment and transfer orders, spare parts inventory, etc. These end-points are combined into our common data models.

Makini also supports systems that don’t have an API at all, acting as an API layer on top of them.
