AppDirect, cloud service marketplace and management platform, has launched a series of APIs that opens the doors to its entire AppDirect platform. The result of the APIs allows any service provider that desires to open an app marketplace to rely on AppDirect for all of the back-end heavy lifting, so the marketplace developer can concentrate on a customized front-end and end user experience. From sign-on to billing, AppDirect's entire platform can now drive third party marketplaces.
Stride, the team communications solution Atlassian launched in September, today announced new features designed to make it "an even more powerful communications solution." These features include new API capabilities that enable developers to build custom apps and messaging bots.
