So What Are Open Data API's and Why Would I Need To Use Them?
Many companies of various sizes believe they have to collect their own data to see benefits from big data analytics, but it’s simply not true. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of free data sets available, ready to be used and analysed by anyone willing to look for them.
Forward-thinking companies that may not have the resources to begin collecting their own data right away can access this publically available data and begin asking the right questions and getting answers right away.
To get access to this data you need to build and communicate with what's called an API.
API is the acronym for Application Programming Interface, which is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other. Each time you use an app like Facebook, send an instant message, or check the weather on your phone, you’re using an API.
Using API's we can get you data from many sectors including finance, health, weather, sport, entertainment, jobs, the list goes on.....
We can help you and build API extraction tools to get data for you from these and many more sources:
US Census Bureau
The CIA World Factbook
Amazon Web Services public datasets
This is really just the tip of the iceberg. Many websites, apps, and companies that offer an API provide access to the data they collect through that API. There are literally thousands if not tens of thousands of data sources in all sorts of sectors from right round the world so just tell us what you need. We can extract data either as a one-off or ongoing from virtually any API data source.
