# Introduction

Welcome to our documentation of graphapi®, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform that empowers business professionals and developers to co-develop world-class apps.

In addition to its robust and scalable technology built on Amazon Web Services (AWS), our platform features an intuitive interface allowing business professionals to easily input and manage data in a spreadsheet-like user interface while providing developers an easy-to-integrate GraphQL API to enable programmatic access to the same data.

Our cloud automation backend allows teams to focus on their customers and users rather than worrying about the upkeep of servers and databases.

A graphapi® low-code backend is the single source of truth for your data and consists of a highly scalable database, a fully configured backend, and a GraphQL API that powers your apps.
