There are major advantages to today’s applications being built atop APIs. If you’re reading ProgrammableWeb, there’s a good chance you know all about integrating with other services. The major disadvantage of modern distributed architecture is pretty obvious—someone else’s service could go down and it’s outside of your control. You might not even know a service is down, which is why many top API providers are now making status pages available. These sites help communicate to developers when anything is amiss with the API.
The most popular video API is about to become more popular. As just announced by Googe's Jim Patterson on the YouTube blog, YouTube Everywhere, the YouTube API has just been upgraded with some very powerful new features.
Tableau extended its data intelligence abilities to third party apps and services via a suite of APIs. The APIs are delivered to the developer community through Tableau 10, the company's latest platform release. From embedded analytics to web data connectors, Tableau delivers data insights to all.
