Today in APIs: Tranxition Launches User Persona API

Tranxition Announces User Persona API

Tranxition, user persona management software provider, has announced the release of its User Persona API (UP). UP enables apps, software providers, and other services to restore the personas of personal computers. Prior to the API release, computer personas were solely used for migration. The UP release will expand potential uses.


Kelly Mackin, Tranxition founder and COO, commented:

Enterprise software vendors can now deploy services that support disaster recovery, backup and restore as well as computer migration between and within systems. Until now, people could only retrieve their files. Now they can retrieve their personas as well. For ITAM and ITSM vendors, personas can now be managed as an asset associated with policy.

The API is aimed to support organizations of all shapes and sizes. To learn more, visit Tranxition’s UP announcement.
