The exploding API economy, combined with an advanced analytics market projected to reach $30 billion by 2019, is driving a market demand to expose more data from APIs. Business analysts, data engineers, and data scientists have been getting left behind in existing API strategies. This is because many APIs are designed to integrate with applications to extend functionality, however these data workers are looking for APIs that facilitate direct data access to support analytics. Data APIs are specifically designed to provide that frictionless data access experience to support analytics across standard interoperable interfaces such as OData (REST) or ODBC/JDBC (SQL). Consider expanding your API strategy to service the developers in this $30 billion market.
