Wowzer, video screening/interviewing provider, announced the public release of the first Wowzer API. Wowzer believes its video screening platform (as an alternative to phone screening) reduces candidate screening time by 75%. Recruiters and employers can evaluate and respond to applicants in a time and manner most beneficial to their organization. Extending the Wowzer platform via API allows recruiters to integrate the Wowzer features into existing hiring processes.
While working with Big Data affords a lot of potential business value the complexity of building applications that manipulate all that information can be nothing short of daunting.

SEOmoz, a leader in SEO software, has offered link intelligence APIs for a few years (Mozscape being the latest). Although Mozscape has garnered high adoption rates (over 10 million requests/day), customer feedback uncovered shortcomings. SEOmoz now knows that 10 requests/second and a max of 50 URLs/batch "is not able to support everyone's use case." Accordingly, SEOmoz enhanced Mozscape API capabilities and is currently in beta. Although the beta is in its early stages, throughput has increased 400%.
