Orchestrate APIs

Streamline business processes and get end-to-end transparency across APIs

Digital Business Runs on APIs

From social media logins to payment gateways and everything in between, APIs are the building blocks of modern software. However, automating processes across many different APIs can be complex, and it doesn’t account for processes that involve additional endpoints such as RPA bots, ERPs, CRMs, document management systems, and human work.

Camunda process orchestration enables you to design, automate, and improve processes that require APIs along with other types of process endpoints from end to end.

Benefits of Effective API Orchestration

Visualize, troubleshoot, analyze, and improve processes that span across multiple APIs and other endpoints. Get the business context your stakeholders need, regardless of the number or complexity of the APIs involved.

Replace repetitive manual tasks with orchestrated APIs to increase the level of automation in your processes, improve their efficiency, and reduce the chance of human error.

Replace RPA bots and other brittle task automations with APIs without having to redesign business processes or disrupt processes that are in progress.
