A new API tool that transforms open datasets so they can be accessed by a REST API is capturing the attention of local governments interested in implementing smart cities policies. The DataTank is a data publishing platform that can also be used as a plug-in with the CKAN open data platform. It is created and managed by the Belgium chapter of the Open Knowledge Foundation, which operates as a social enterprise startup. ProgrammableWeb spoke with The DataTank's Technical Lead Jan Vansteenlandt about the new open data/API tool and how it can be used to drive the smart cities agenda.
As the database market continues to expand, many start-ups in the space are focusing on honing their key points of differentiation to carve out a customer market. FoundationDB -- with founders from the Adobe-acquired Visual Sciences -- believes that their transactional, API-at-the-core database software will continue to increase in importance as customers seek a NoSQL solution with the reliability of SQL. Cofounder and CEO of FoundationDB David Rosenthal spoke with ProgrammableWeb about how customers are using FoundationDB and why it is worth having an "extremely opinionated API" at its center.
Startups that want to design innovative products and services using data that's accessible via the web now have better data mining tools, thanks in part to startups like the award-winning import.io. Meanwhile, the recent settlement between U.S. startup People+ and AOL around accessing the entire Crunchbase database via API for a Google Glass app means there could be greater clarity for startups around data usage rights when creating commercial ventures. ProgrammableWeb spoke with import.io co-founder and chief data officer Andrew Fogg and Electronic Frontier Foundation staff attorney Mitch Stoltz to discuss commercial trends in data scraping and developer rights in using data via APIs for business product design.
