Details

 

Our Cloud API has been created to bridge the data from the on-premises D-Tools server to a cloud API Server, where it becomes available to a subscription from the incoming 3rd party application.

 

It is important to understand how our API has been designed in relationship to our product: As an on-premises application, SI 2018 has no directly accessible API. Instead we have created a middle-ware solution running on our cloud. In this way, our solution integrates to our cloud to enable data to be published for consumption by other cloud, or on-premises, applications.
