Tandem as a platform
Discover the benefits of Tandem as a platform
The Tandem platform is a rich source of assets, spaces, systems, and sensor data. Use our open APIs to create powerful extensions, integrations, or even whole applications.
Connect existing systems
With Tandem APIs, you can integrate other enterprise or mission critical systems such as CMMS or Building Management Systems (BMS) and increase their overall value.
Automate repetitive tasks
Once your users’ common workflows have been established, you can leverage the Tandem APIs to automate some of these tasks or streamline several steps into one.
Create new business opportunities
Bring new and meaningful value to the AECO industry with Autodesk Tandem’s building data. It’s easily accessible via APIs, enabling the development of powerful, third-party applications.
With foundational Read/Write access to the Asset Information Model, you can integrate other systems and push and pull data as needed. You can also connect to your BMS and deliver time-series sensor data to Tandem.
We aim to enable vertical integrations and extensions to the Tandem application itself. This would allow you to use all the existing functionality and UI of Tandem and extend it with your own plugins.
Leverage the developer ecosystem
With your feedback and support for both extensions and custom workflows, we will transform the coordination and flow of information for the built environment. We’re committed to working closely with the developer community to deliver on the exciting prospects of digital twins.
Get started with the Tandem APIs
If you’re interested in experimenting with new Tandem APIs, getting set up in one of our Test Beds is quick and easy.
- Sign up for a free Tandem account
- Set up a Facility by importing your model (find further guidance here)
- Review the source code by clicking on the GitHub icon in the demo app
Please note: The viewer will remain empty until you have set up a facility.
REST Test Bed
Normally used in contexts where you want to push and pull data without any additional UI from Tandem, this Test Bed demonstrates how to use the foundational REST APIs.
