One of the more interesting views given by the directory is a look at what sectors are seeing the most growth in APIs. The directory data model allows for one primary category as well as multiple secondary categories and in this article we take a look at which categories are most represented.
Over 57 million Americans get their health insurance through Medicare. However, one barrier to significantly improved care has been the free flow of Medicare claims data between dissimilar systems. According to the US Digital Service however, version 2.0 of the Blue Button API should fix that.
The ProgrammableWeb directory passed the 19,000-API mark in January of 2018 so we're taking a look at what the data tells us since we published our overall growth chart a year ago. We see that the number of APIs submitted to our directory continues to grow signaling high interest in providing APIs.
MuleSoft's annual Connectivity Benchmark Report reveals what’s at stake if IT leaders don’t get the job done on digital transformation; four out of five say that they will lose revenue in as little as 12 months if digital transformation isn’t completed. Can APIs be a way to achieve these goals?
Previously we looked at APIs that readers follow the most using our tracking functionality. This time we measured the APIs readers show interest in by counting the number of times a user clicks an outbound link to a provider's site. This is a metric that may better signal developer interest.
We saw earlier this year that the Government category was one of the most popular API categories within our directory. But what sections of government and what kinds of data are being made available via API? In this article we look at the ten most popular categories related to government APIs.
One of the great things about our directory data model is that it allows us to get a big picture view of what an API looks like in today’s world. This month we consider the data in the API type, architectural style and scope fields to see what it tells us about the APIs in our directory.
Which APIs are the most popular with developers? There are a lot of ways to come to an answer; this month we are using our directory data to offer one. Every API in our directory has a track functionality and by looking at the data we can see which APIs our readers have shown the most interest in.
When we first looked at the fastest growing API categories of recent years, Financial and Payments both made the list. We've seen a number of signals that there is great interest in API related to Finance so we decided to take a deeper look at the category's growth this month.
