Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Messaging, Real Estate, and Cryptocurrency. Highlights include APIs from data intelligence solution provider Melissa for ensuring correct business contact data. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
Alcatel-Lucent, a leading global communications solutions provider and the parent company of ProgrammableWeb, has introduced a suite of nine "New Conversation APIs" that provide developers with easy access to IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) capabilities such as high definition voice and video, audio/video conferencing, interactive voice, messaging and call control. In addition, Alcatel-Lucent has launched a Developer Portal that allows access to the New Conversation APIs and a sandbox for developers to build and test their applications.
While the majority of the APIs within the ProgrammableWeb directory are REST-styled APIs, that isn't the only architectural style in use, not by a long shot. In this article we look at our directory data to see what underlying technologies are most popular across the various Push/Streaming APIs.
