The New York City Government has raised the bar for open government programs everywhere by launching several brand new NYC Open Data APIs, a redesigned Open Data Portal and Developer Website. The NYC Open Data Portal now has over 1,100 datasets available including 200 brand new datasets that have just been added.
One of the great things about APIs is that they make applications more accessible than ever in the age of the cloud. But just because an application is accessible doesn’t necessarily mean there is a mechanism in place to consume data from the application via the API it exposes. In fact, the tools needed to consume that data is giving rise to a new class of middleware that is collectively being referred to as cloud brokering software.
When it comes to the cloud, there is no shortage of platforms and associated APIs that developers need to watch when deploying their applications. Not only do developers need to ensure that an application is compatible with a specific set of cloud APIs, they also need to make sure the application stays compatible over time as APIs evolve and change.
