Threat of Application Programming Interface (API) as a Substitute for EDI to Inhibit Growth
Electronic data interchange solutions offer a basic exchange of business documents using multiple standard electronic formats via computers between business partners. It is feasible to carry on the similar transactions using API, such as sending order stock, invoices, and carrying out other similar processes, thus creating a substitute for the traditional data interchange systems. APIs are often faster, flexible, and cost-effective than EDI, and are typically synchronous and boast smaller payloads. An API is integrated with a REST (Representational state transfer), a systematic architectural style, that is easy to modify for developers as per the necessity. It also offers safe and trusted data exchange service, wherein it is also useful to track the data or order stock that has been lost, and is hence emerging as a potential substitute threat for the EDI technology.
