Postman Makes Building Software Accessible to All, Announces Postman

Postman, the world’s leading API Platform, today announced the general availability of Postman Flows, a visual tool for creating API applications. Postman Flows simplifies building software by using APIs as the building blocks, allowing anyone to produce workflows, integrations, and automations in a collaborative environment without needing to write a single line of code.

With Postman Flows, the company is leaning into demand for a low-code solution that lets people build software without extensive programming experience. Using tens of thousands of readily available APIs, business users can manipulate data with API calls and create workflows. This allows everyone, from financial analysts and customer service agents to senior business leaders, to devise solutions to problems they encounter every day.

“APIs are the building blocks of modern software. However, those blocks have not always been accessible to everyone,” said Abhinav Asthana, co-founder and CEO of Postman. “We are on a mission to change this. With more than 25 million users across every continent, we believe Postman can accomplish this at a massive scale so that any user, anywhere, can build and participate in today’s API-first world.”

Postman Flows makes it simple to construct API applications without needing to write code or fiddle with a command line. Inspired by the concept of “blocks” to form and visualize an application, users simply drag the blocks, build the application, and deploy the workflow. And Postman Flows leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to enable users to manipulate data returned by APIs by simply typing out what they want to do in natural language, making it easy for all. Hundreds of thousands of users have already built API applications using Postman Flows during its beta program.

“Postman Flows is the sweet spot for us, as it gives our non-technical team members a low-code tool to build, document, test, and implement an API workflow,” said Thomas Schlegel, distinguished engineer at Built Technologies. “We can accomplish tasks faster with fewer errors, and we look forward to maximizing these benefits across the organization.”

“Postman Flows makes prototyping and testing easy,” said Sid Verma, partner engineer at Notion. “Building connections visually is more intuitive and clear, which results in spending more time building and less time digging through code. I’m excited to see the future of Flows and Notion!”

The future of AI is hybrid. As generative AI adoption grows at record-setting speeds1 and drives higher demand for compute,2 AI processing must be distributed between the cloud and devices for AI to scale and reach its full potential – just like traditional computing evolved from mainframes and thin clients to today’s mix of cloud and edge devices. A hybrid AI architecture distributes and coordinates AI workloads among cloud and edge devices, rather than processing in the cloud alone. The cloud and edge devices, such as smartphones, vehicles, PCs, and IoT devices, work together to deliver more powerful, efficient, and highly optimized AI.
