Nexmo continues its tear through 2014. After landing new funding in January, then delivering new solutions through the UK and UAE, Nexmo has extended its reach to China with a 21Vianet Partnership. The partnerships will allow Nexmo to bring its cloud APIs to communication app developers and solution providers with China’s largest carrier-neutral data center service provider, 21Vianet.
In January, OnStar announced an API would allow third party developers to integrate their applications with OnStar's platform. Last week, General Motors announced its first partner for API integration: RelayRides. RelayRides is "[t]he world's largest peer to peer carsharing marketplace." The partnership with GM allows OnStar users to leave their keys in their cars when renting a car to a fellow RelayRider. The renter can then unlock the car with a smartphone app or by responding to a text message.
