Discover how Stambia technology allows you to expose your data and processes without any line of code. Create complex services that aggregate data from multiple applications. "API-ze" your information system effortlessly and remain focused on "business" aspects and not technical issues.
Thanks to its unified solution and scalable technology, Stambia allows you to accelerate and industrialize the implementation of your API / Webservices / Microservices.
As part of the ongoing digitisation process, organizations and it’s information systems are transforming rapidly. Every day, the digital ecosystem is enriched by new services and innovations so as to create value. But this comes with many challenges:
To meet these challenges, a simple solution is to adopt an API approach. Discover the different possibilities offered by the Stambia API component.
The digitisation and opening up of data makes it easier to collaborate and share information between companies, but it also increases the number of technologies and projects.
It is also necessary to be able to display or retrieve information from any system (both external and internal).
It is also important to make any internally managed data available in a flexible and agile manner.
The democratization of Cloud and the rise of SaaS applications has enabled the development of standardized APIs, mostly in REST or SOAP mode.
In the context of a CRM project, for example, in the implementation of a SaaS solution (Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics CRM,..), the use of APIs simplifies the implementation of a 360° customer vision.
Data is now one of the main assets of organizations. The opening of company data to its ecosystem:
Data protection is also becoming essential for companies. The "API-zation" approach of the Information System also guarantees the implementation of good practices in terms of data security. This type of architecture, for example, is generally associated with the implementation of regulatory frameworks such as the GDPR.
Business projects increasingly require associated data and processing. Information systems are built by accumulating different applications in silos. As a result, data is scattered and duplicated in multiple systems.
The implementation of a mutualization of data and processes by API allows to :
The Stambia component for APIs simplifies and speeds up the "API-zation" process. With a few clicks, it is possible to define a single entry point for the main categories of data (product, price, stock, customer, etc.).
Coupled with the Data Hub architecture, Stambia API is the ideal combination for the development of Web services / APIs for the information system.
The Stambia component for API is the ideal solution to
Indeed, it will make it possible in a concrete way to:
For example, in the Retail sector: the implementation of an omnichannel strategy requires the provision of the most up-to-date data possible. The APIs developed with Stambia will make it possible to meet this challenge.
Why adopt an "API-zation" approach to its traditional information system called "Legacy"?
Changing a brick like an ERP, a WMS system is a long, expensive and sometimes low value-added process. Nevertheless, the opening of the entire IS to the outside world has become essential.
Historical applications" can cause the Information System to become rigid:
Using Web services / API allows you to overcome these constraints and discover new advantages:
The Stambia API component simplifies API/web management in integration projects, providing a high level of performance and disconcerting ease of development.
With the same agility as the other Stambia components, the API component can be used without any development effort (fully graphical approach). It offers a high level of productivity thanks to its Modeling approach and the use of native standards for all types of Web services (SOAP / HTTP REST protocol, XML and JSON input/output format).
Meeting the needs given by APIs to the business is no longer a complex and tedious task to deploy. Thanks to its technology, Stambia allows in a few clicks to build and make available Web services and API projects.

Integrated into the data integration solution without any specificity, API development with Stambia offers many advantages:
Stambia allows the one-click publication of any data integration flow development as a Web service / API. This provides SOAP and REST HTTP access to a standard entry point (via HTTP). For API mode (HTTP REST), the management of return codes (200, 500) is native.
Therefore, any development done with Stambia can be seen as a service. The composition of services becomes easy, as does the implementation of a "Self-Service Data Integration" portal.
Stambia has native invocation and publishing capabilities for Web services / API. It supports SOAP (referred to as Web service) and HTTP REST (often referred to as API) protocols.
A wizard facilitates reverse engineering of any type of Web service / API. Authentication specificities such as Oauth2 are supported. In addition, Stambia API facilitates the management of standard input/output formats associated with Web services / APIs: XML, JSON.
Finally, Stambia interprets the WSDL, WSI description formats natively. But it also provides an entry point for describing Web services / APIs published on the Runtime (WSDL, WSI, Swagger 2.0 (S19.1)).
Stambia allows you to integrate natively into any API Management application.
The services published by Stambia comply with the Swagger or WSDL standards.
Integration with an API Management solution will enable:
This is how development is accelerated thanks to the Stambia development studio and API Management’s simplified administration.
Stambia does not require the implementation of a heavy and dedicated infrastructure. The Runtime, the real orchestration engine of the delegation in Stambia's ELT architecture, is a lightweight and easy to install component. Its duplication is as easy as a copy/paste. All this contributes to and encourages the industrialization of deployments.From simple data integration to API
Users of traditional data integration flows (batch, streaming, etc.) can respond quickly to an API / Web services initiative.
Thanks to its lightweight and simple design, Stambia API does not require any additional installation. A configuration is sufficient to activate the Runtimes already installed and to deploy the new services.
This flexibility reduces time-to-market and increases the success of business projects.Need scalability?
The Stambia Runtime can be deployed in Cluster mode to manage Failover. True to its Transformation Delegation Logic (ELT), it can be effortlessly integrated into a load balancing system. Stambia can be easily combined with load balancing systems such as Apache, F5, Juniper, Fortinet, Riverbed,...
Finally, due to its architecture, it can easily be deployed in an application container infrastructure (e. g. Docker) and delegate load management to a container orchestration platform such as Kubernetes to integrate with cloud architectures such as Google Cloud Platform / GCP, Amazon or Azure.
HTTP REST / SOAP
XML, JSON + any specific format
