# What is API and What Does it Do?

API stands for Application Programming Interface. An API is a way for two or more computer programs to communicate with each other. As developers, we are often asked to do the impossible. Deliver more, faster. But with the help of APIs, we can bridge the gap between what businesses are asking for and what is actually possible.

Thanks to APIs, we can reduce repetitive yet complex processes and dramatically speed up our application development processes. APIs help us close the IT delivery gap and meet the ever-growing needs of businesses.
