One of the more subtle trends starting to emerge as 2014 approaches is that end users are increasingly self-servicing their data integration requirements. As integration services continue to mature in the cloud, the days of end users' dependence on developers to connect various sets of data are coming to a close.

Honeywell, a Fortune 100 diversified technology and manufacturing company, has announced the launch of the Honeywell Cloud API Program initially available to select partners. The Honeywell Cloud API Program features the new Comfort Control API which allows development partners programmatic access to Honeywell Wi-Fi enabled thermostats. Honeywell also currently offers an AlarmNet Direct API that allows programmatic access to Honeywell home and business security devices.
