Single purpose API
While some folks tend to think about APIs are being little bits of arcane code that only developers care about it, the truth of the matter is that billions, possibly even trillions, of dollars are at stake in what will soon be a series of API wars. In no place is this more important than in mobile banking, where companies ranging from Google, the PayPal unit of eBay and lesser known entities such as MineralTree are all vying to usurp the role of traditional financial institutions.
To combat payment fraud, WePay, an API-centric payment provider that launched in 2008, built Veda. WePay recently unveiled a new API at the Finovate Spring conference.
Traindom, information product creation and marketing platform, offers many of its feature via the Traindom API. At the core of Traindom stands a belief that "anyone can start a business." Whether you want to create a membership site, provide a training class, or produce/market an information product of any type, Traindom looks to ease the time to market. Its API allows developers to access its platform within existing applications and tools. Accordingly, users are not locked in to utilizing Traindom for every last detail of their go to market plan.
