Building GraphQL APIs declaratively in StepZen

There's a reason
developers love StepZen

  • Performance of our app is critical. It pulls together many bits of information and StepZen’s auto parallelism helped a lot. It also helps us future proof and scale as we add backend services, and build new apps on the unified GraphQL API.

  • For our small team, speed is of the essence. With StepZen, we can quickly connect APIs and services in a GraphQL endpoint, and can onboard new and varied backend services (REST, SOAP, GraphQL . . ) faster than ever.

We've got your backend covered

Can StepZen manage Federated Data Access?
StepZen is the only declarative approach for federated access to data. Our team brings years of experience and deep expertise in API (Apigee) and database technologies (Postgres, DB2, and Derby).
Does StepZen support Enterprise Data Layers?
We help assemble the work of independent teams into an enterprise data layer. Our "graph-of-graphs" approach lets teams focus on the data in their domains and enables the organization to assemble a consolidated view declaratively.
Does StepZen host GraphQL APIs on their servers?
Your API is automatically and continuously deployed to StepZen's cloud, on your private cloud, or in a colocation data center. It's up to you.
How does StepZen build Federated GraphQL APIs?
A federated GraphQL API (supergraph) brings together different services (subgraphs) into one unified API endpoint. Whether your subgraphs are built with StepZen or with another library or technology, you can assemble them into a federated graph using StepZen. No complex intermingling of concerns across subgraphs, no writing stubs of types, no declaring primary keys. You can even enable a StepZen subgraph to plug into an Apollo Federation layer.
Does StepZen support subgraphs written in Rust, Java, Kotlin etc.?
Yep, you can build it into your federated layer using the stepzen import graphql command.
What backends does StepZen support?
With StepZen, it doesn't matter if your backend is REST, SQL, NoSQL or SOAP. We know data resides in multiple sources. We help you connect any back-end, just point StepZen in the right direction.
