Business Profiles, online database of business registration information, provides access to its massive database via the Business Profiles API. The database contains business registrations (e.g. corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, etc.) and additional data on shareholders, directors, public filings, and more.
Today's developers have a vast array of databases and APIs upon which to build their products. Developing a data extraction framework for integrating the various data sources that can survive changes over time is a challenge however. This article looks at best practices for such integrations.
Back in May I wrote about the race for either unified APIs or API standards to bridge the growing number of APIs in specific industries or areas. Unified APIs are created by a third party provider to bridge multiple APIs, while API standards would potentially create an industry-wide standard of how APIs should operate.
