Canada’s Yellow Pages Group (YPG) is launching a new developer ecosystem to support and stimulate startup innovation in the local search and location based services market, including a certified developer program and four ways to monetize applications. The new developer ecosystem comes partly from the group's work with hackfests. “We got tired of seeing all these great ideas die after the hack, we wanted to make sure these potential local search apps were brought to market," YPG's Bradley Wing said. YPG understands the YellowAPI is a natural extension of its existing business model, and extends the reach of its advertisers by feeding their listings through 3rd parties applications built on the platform.
TESOBE, Berlin-based software development firm, has launched the Open Bank Project with the hopes of bringing more transparency to the world's banking community. To accomplish its goal, the Open Bank Project provides an API that banks utilize to provide transaction data to interested parties. Given the hypersensitivity of financial information, the Open Bank Project must persevere through many obstacles. However, should the idea catch hold, it could be the first example of open banking as a service.
