Enigma Public is a community platform that brings together thousands of public data sources for discovery. Enigma Public encourages users to find connections with data for new insights and analysis.
The Enigma API allows developers to access and integrate the functionality of Enigma with other applications and to create new applications. API methods are available to create, retrieve, and manage collections, datasets, tags, accounts, and more.
A summary of discussions from OKFestival on open data business models reveals a strong commitment to fostering an ecosystem, while many startups commence with a composite model with multiple revenue streams.
Open data startup Enigma has released its platform to the public and now provides the open Enigma API so that developers can begin drawing on open data sources and feeding them into their applications. Co-founder Marc DaCosta spoke with ProgrammableWeb about the importance of encouraging developer involvement, and why Enigma can succeed when other open data platforms have had difficulties building a sustainable model.
