Cloud Infrastructure – It’s All About Granularity | The Diversity Blog - SaaS, Cloud & Business Strategydiversity.net.nz on 06/07/2013
Excerpt: A post from Barb Darrow over at GigaOm caught my eye this morning. In the post Barb suggests that we’ll see many more specific vertical clouds from AWS, akin to the GovCloud. As she wrote: Here’s one I think the company will pursue, if it’s not doing it already. In the U. S. , Amazon’s GovCloud is a separate region that complies with regulations above and beyond what other regions do so that federal, state and government agencies can use it. Given data privacy concerns in Europe and some other regions, it would be fruitful for Amazon to think about setting up analogous secure clouds outside the U.... read the full post.

Kaiser Permanente launches open health API with facility info, self-tracking data coming soon | mobihealthnewsmobihealthnews.com on 06/03/2013
Excerpt: Phil Fasano, executive vice president and chief information officer at Kaiser Permanente, emphasized during a short speech at Health Datapalooza in Washington, D. C. this week that KP has no plans to share their patient’s personal health information via the API. In the future, the platform will make it easier for developers to pull in self-tracking data to Interchange. A logo in KP’s whitepaper about Interchange suggests activity trackers Fitbit and Jawbone, and gamified kids activity platform Zamzee, could be initial partners. That activity data will be shared back to Kaiser Permanente, according to the Interchange FAQ page.... read the full post.

Excerpt: San Francisco - Dozens of computer scientists urged an appeals court today to block the copyright claims over application programming interfaces (APIs) in the Oracle v.

Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit today. The group urges the court to uphold a decision from U. S.... read the full post.

Excerpt: As we have dwelled upon in a number of previous posts here at SmartBear, creating monitors for APIs you either provide or consume (or both) should be a cornerstone in your online quality strategy. Now that API Monitoring has a free version you hardly have any excuses left – right?

blog.sendgrid.com on 05/28/2013
Excerpt: The last four years I had a job that most developers would envy. I got to check out new APIs, play around with them and then tell everyone what I thought of them. As Executive Editor at ProgrammableWeb, I watched the number of publicly available APIs leap from less than 2,000 to more than 9,000. And it’s still growing, more rapidly than ever. Yet, now I work for SendGrid, which represents a small percentage of all APIs in existence. How does that make sense? My entire career has been built around explaining technology. When I was an active developer, I needed to investigate new tools and decide how to implement them. As early as 2000, I wrote programming how-to articles on Webmonkey.... read the full post.
