FileMaker and REST APIs

Breaking down barriers and creating new business models

In today’s business landscape, more companies are plugging into the API (Application Programming Interfaces) economy, resulting in new streamlined business models amongst diverse platforms, apps, and services. Imagine having your custom app tap into Google, Stripe, MailChimp, or eBay — there’s literally thousands of possibilities.

Released with FileMaker Server 16, the FileMaker REST API offers a new way to natively connect to and easily exchange information with other data sources increasing the value of your FileMaker custom apps.

In these presentations (live or webinar), you’ll get a brief tour of just a few of the thousands of API integrations that are possible with the FileMaker Platform. You will also see how you can setup your own FileMaker API and how easy it is to combine features and data from other applications into your custom apps. You will even hear from customers using the technology to solve business problems today.
