MomaPIX DAM software makes the APIs available to any third-party companies that wish to interface with the software and develop an application, or integrate the offer of digital asset management into another service. APIs can help organizations achieve digital strategy goals by extending the functionality of digital asset management. Developers can connect to the DAM endpoints to create customized integrations that connect digital resources with productivity tools and desktop solutions already adopted by the company.
APIs are important components in a DAM software. Although most digital asset management solutions have a vast library of ready-to-use integrations, it is almost impossible to integrate them instantly with any platform.
Let’s see what an API is in detail. API stands for ''Application Programming Interface'' and allows developers to take advantage of code already embedded in a particular platform and perform an action without having to rewrite existing code. Internal developers expose ''endpoints'' in their product to allow external developers to connect it to other platforms. Then they provide a list of operations that developers can use to perform certain actions and explain the language (script) requirements for the platform.
With MomaPIX DAM software APIs, developers don't need to know the ''how'' of an action, they just need to know how to connect to it. This significantly reduces the amount of code a developer needs to create, prevents duplication of data processes and improves consistency across platforms.
APIs allow you to access a variety of DAM functions from other platforms, to create a user experience in the same environment for users. The capabilities of an API are practically infinite, below we list some common uses of APIs in digital asset management:
