Data is, in many ways, one of the most valuable assets a business has. A growing number of consumers and businesses are incorporating web and mobile apps into their daily routines, and companies are using data to provide more personalised, tailored experiences to their customers. In addition, companies are analysing customer and operational behaviour to make better decisions.
We all know that the value of APIs to the enterprise is increasing as new ways are discovered to use data. Every industry and every customer touchpoint will find itself interacting with APIs, as developers further implement the orchestration and presentation of valuable data. APIs are transforming modern business, and we are starting to see companies capitalise on the opportunities that they provide.
As more and more APIs come into use, the architecture underpinning them needs to evolve as well - organisations cannot simply attempt to deploy APIs on top of existing monolithic systems and processes and expect overnight transformation.
At The RIC Group we have found that with ERPs with great APIs such as SAP Business One HANA, Acumatica and Sage 300c our Warehouse Management Solution can offer so much more flexibility. It is so much easier to have real time information as queries can call web services immediately, also delivering real time information is a breeze such as using tools like Power BI.
Delivering real time information using APIs gives the warehouse team better control of inventory and better information for decision making.
