Serverless-first API integrations
Choose a faster, easier and more scalable approach to API integrations with serverless.
First of all, what is serverless technology?
To break it down, serverless technology is a development model that works with a cloud provider. AWS Lambda, Azure Cloud Functions and Google Cloud Functions are the three big providers and services that make up the core of serverless technology. Serverless architectures go well beyond functions, but these are where the magic happens.
This means that developers can build and run applications, write and deploy code or integrate data without having to deal with servers directly. The cloud provider takes care of the maintenance, management and scale of the server infrastructure.
What are the benefits of a serverless-first strategy?
It’s a big relief for developers to reduce operational stress while increasing their productivity. Managing servers takes a lot of time and effort from developers who could instead focus on the tasks at hand with a serverless strategy. A serverless architecture also helps to scale easier, stay more flexible and deploy quicker.
It’s also much more cost-effective to go with a serverless model because you simply pay for the cloud provider as needed instead of running and controlling your own servers – some companies save up to 85-90% of their DevOps running costs going serverless.
When should you take a serverless approach for your business?
A serverless-first strategy can be great for your business when you have to handle on-demand data, for example instantly wanting to start apps or processing a larger amount of image files, but also when synchronisation timing is unpredictable and has to be flexible.
You also benefit from a serverless approach when you need to manage incoming data streams, back-end APIs, web apps, automations, chatbots, websites or integrations on multiple platforms.
Which integrations can Honest Fox help you with?
When building new websites, we usually recommend a serverless approach depending on the client’s objectives. We can also implement various system integrations to develop a connected tech stack that is future-proof and easy to navigate. This includes linking up a CRM software, marketing automations, documentation programmes, HCM, sales or analytics. Here are some integrations we can help you with:
The above list is only a short example of the most common integrations we develop. If your preferred tech stack has APIs available, we can plan and architect custom integrations to suit your specific needs.
