IKANOW, open source big data platform provider, has released a Developer API. Much in line with the company's broader mission and message, the goal of the API showcases focus and simplicity: "[M]ake it simple for developers to gather, harvest and enrich a diverse array of structured and unstructured datasources and build compelling data driven applications." IKANOW built the Developer API on its Infinit.e platform (i.e. its flagship analytics product).
Mimeo.com just launched a new area to support its family of APIs, print marketplaces and enterprise print integration tools. Developers can build applications that offer print-on-demand services, using the Mimeo Connect Cloud Print API. Mimeo.com has long had a SOAP API, but has recently built an easier-to-use RESTful API for developers.
A trend is starting to emerge: Advanced technologies are being made available first as cloud services that organizations can invoke easily via an API, rather than having to figure out how to deploy and master themselves. The latest example of that trend is a cloud service from AlchemyAPI that takes advantage of machine learning and computer vision technologies to allow publishers and providers of ad networks to more easily monetize content.
