API Means Business

Earlier this week blog (sforce) gave us this very interesting statistic about their web services APIs:

And from our modest beginnings with Sforce 1.0, we’ve seen the Sforce Web service API grow to account for over 40% of all of’s total traffic. Think about that for a minute - the API is almost as heavily used as the Web application.

Nearly half of all traffic via their API! As Amazon, eBay and demonstrate, if the provider is smart, there are ways to leverage APIs onto the bottom line. [via Moonwatcher]
