REST API design is created using developers in mind. To prevent the problem of exposing complex back-end systems and internal systems of record during the design phase, you need to implement an API facade pattern.
The façade pattern makes it easy to extend an API by building more capability, or plugging in additional existing systems. Using the REST API design pattern, the API team can easily adapt to different use cases—regardless of their role—internal developer, partner, or open scenarios. It is also possible to keep pace with the change, including the protocols and languages.
