Solution for lightweight real-time, Event-driven API
lightweight solution for enabling real-time notifications and data
Pragma Edge webhooks (PEW) is a solution for lightweight real-time, Event-driven API. PEW can be thought of as a type of API that is driven by events rather than requests. Instead of one application making a request to another to receive a response, a webhook is a service that allows one program to send data to another as soon as a particular event takes place. With web services becoming increasingly interconnected, webhooks are seeing more action as a lightweight solution for enabling real-time notifications and data.
Some use cases for Pragma Edge Webhooks are Real-time notifications, Real-time Data Integration, Send Mobile Notifications, new email list subscriptions and subscriptions to a CRM system, and updating logistics transaction status messages.
Lightweight data sharing
Pragma Edge Webhooks is easier to set up and utilizes less resource intensive. Creating an API is a complex process that, in some cases, can be as challenging as designing and building an application itself but implementing a webhook requires setting up a single POST request on the sending end, establishing a URL on the receiving end to accept the data, then performing some action on the Data once it is received.
