Data Services and API's

With the goal of utilizing a central source for people data at Yale going forward, the People Hub will serve as the source of record for this data.  In order to provide consistency of people data to consuming applications, services will be created for the use of application owners.   These services will be reusable across the university where standards and best practices will be applied.

An API is a software intermediary that makes it possible for application programs to interact with each other and share data. It's often an implementation of REST that exposes a specific software functionality while protecting the rest of the application
