The Web API provides a development experience that can be used across a wide variety of programming languages, platforms, and devices. The Web API implements the OData (Open Data Protocol), version 4.0, an OASIS standard for building and consuming RESTful APIs over rich data sources. (Further details can be found here -https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/mt593051.aspx).
The web API is part of the Dynamics 365 Software Development Kit (SDK). The SDK contains a wealth of resources, including code samples, which are designed allow powerful vertical applications to be built using the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform.

|Description of customisation||
Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM is designed to allow system administrators and users the flexibility of customising and configuring the system to meet their specific needs. Any changes in the organisation can be easily accommodated making this application scalable and extensible.
Some of the major types of customizations include:
- Customising forms, views and charts
- Customising the schema
- Automations using workflows and dialogs
- Customising reports and dashboards and creating web resources
For cases that do require custom development, Microsoft provides a software developer kit (SDK).

The architecture of scale groups is designed to meet the many needs of operating a service at scale, including security, scalability, performance, tenant isolation, serviceability, and monitoring. Each customer has their own individual database, separate from other customers’ databases. Data processing is logically segregated through capabilities specifically developed to help build, manage, and secure multitenant environments.|
