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.
