Have you ever heard of a Chief Science Officer? I recently spoke to Kontagent’s CSO and was excited to learn that Kontagent’s world of big data processing is one of the few places in the world in which academic exercise is directly applicable to industry. Kontagent is a user analytics platform which can easily be integrated into any web site or mobile app. The ease of integration results from the decision to provide a RESTful Kontagent API.
Online bookseller Erapublications has an API for its in2Era web service for selling ebooks through online distributors. According to its documentation, this RESTful API, which requires an authentication key, integrates its catalog onto your site. Distributors get a cut of the sales.
