In the past week we have had three outstanding business mashups named Mashup of The Day. These mashups all used the DocuSign Enterprise API to help make business happen. Below you can see details on the three mashups and read about how they are changing the way documents are handled. Lets get started with DocuSign for Google Drive.
This past week 15 new mashups were added to our mashup directory and 10 different APIs were used to build them. Some of the newer or less frequently seen APIs include iTunes & App Store Search, LyrDB, Numbers and Rdio. The most often used APIs this week are DocuSign Enterprise, Hoiio Voice and indeed. And the most commonly used types of APIs were Music (4 APIs, 4 mashups), Telephony (1 APIs, 1 mashups) and Media Search (1 APIs, 1 mashups).
After last week’s flurry of activity we’ve got some new management role openings this week from Facebook and Mashery.
Busy week! We’ve got nine job openings this week in a variety of roles. Also notable this time around is the platform positions at companies not typically known for their API work: Visa, Bloomberg and Getty Images. As more and more companies continue to build an API strategy we’ll continue to see even more of these types of openings.
Our API directory now includes 443 enterprise APIs. The newest is the Swift-Kanban API. The most popular, in terms of mashups, is the LinkedIn API. We list 48 LinkedIn mashups. Below you’ll find some more stats from the directory, including the entire list of enterprise APIs.
The API ecosystem has doubled in a year, but there are many companies yet to embrace the movement. A new open source management service, apiGrove, aims to ease these businesses into the future. The software is available on GitHub with Alcatel-Lucent (ProgrammableWeb’s parent company) as lead contributor, with support from other influential organizations.
Earlier this summer, our friends at Docusign took their REST APIs to General Availability (GA). Docusign has had an API for quite some time, but is now enjoying the benefits of REST to grow its community.
At the beginning of this year DocuSign started executing on a strategy to put together a brand new API. As a part of redesign we also decided to go forward with full adoption of REST protocol. This was no easy task as our existing DocuSign API was processing millions of documents and was responsible for about one-third of all traffic across the eSignature industry. Given that huge volume, we needed to create an exceptional architecture and design to support our customers’ growing applications and integrations. It was our responsibility to make sure the redesign fueled growth and acceptance across the industry–not just at DocuSign.
DocuSign, a leading eSignature Transaction Management Platform is on a mission to make the task of integrating electronic signatures into your applications easier. It has announced the release of the company’s new DocuSign eSignature REST API with a revamped Developer portal that can get you started with implementing eSignatures in your applications within hours.
This weekend DocuSign, the company I work for, was at the first AngelHack hackathon in San Francisco. With nearly 200 people attending (over 150 developers), we were excited to see what applications can be enhanced with the DocuSign API, as well as all the different types of apps developers built.
