What is an API?

An application programming interface (API) is a set of rules implemented by software that allows two computer systems or applications to interact with one another.

Predefined Integration Points vs. Modern APIs

Predefined integration points, or PIPs, are the legacy version of CDK APIs which serve over 600 partners today. Legacy applications are often tightly coupled monoliths while modern applications such as CDK APIs are loosely coupled, restful and OpenAPI standards based. These APIs help you build faster while making possible newer business models and innovative solutions.
