A dynamic way to put APIs on display

Because your organization and its individual lines of business have spent a lot of time getting your APIs just right, you want to get the most out of them. Successful socialization calls for easy-to-use access by internal and external application developers.

Its award-winning user design features robust capabilities that make it easy for your internal lines of business to innovate and for you to attract and engage new partnerships.

Socializing APIs in the airline industry

To increase bookings, airlines are uniquely interested in pushing flight information out to travel-related third parties, such as Kayak, Travelocity and Expedia, so it becomes widely available to travelers. Because socialization like this is key, airlines can benefit from dynamic, engaging solutions like API Connect. With a company-branded developer portal, an airline can allow travel application developers to easily grab flight data and share it worldwide using new applications.
