Intrinio has been growing like crazy and this article is designed to give existing users an update on the changes. We've grown significantly as a company, added new data sets, released some helpful new tools, and have some big plans for the coming months. Read on to get the scoop.
API stands for application programming interface and if that sounds like gibberish, you are already being left in the dust by the competition. APIs allow developers to build connections between their own applications and other applications, enabling data sources to interact. In the past, businesses that wanted their software systems to interact had to purchase expensive ERP software and implement cumbersome, time consuming solutions.
APIs make it easy and cheap for business tools to "talk" to each other, powering data driven decision making in real time. Businesses that use APIs will thrive, those that don't will be too slow to keep up.
What exactly is an API?
If you are a developer using Intrinio's API you will have noticed that for many data types, the results are limited to a specific number per page. This article answers these questions about API paging limits:

Intrinio is proud to announce that executive contacts and compensation data will now be available in the Fintech Marketplace. This dataset from Greensight is broken into two data feeds, one for the United States and one for international executives. Both feeds include direct email and direct phone numbers for key leaders at major corporations as well as 4+ years of compensation data . This article explains what is included in these new feeds and the cost to subscribe, how to access the data in Excel, and how to use the Executive Contacts API.
Our mission at Intrinio is to power a generation of applications that will fundamentally change the way our broken financial system works. Intrinio data feeds form the basis of large enterprise business reporting applications, fintech web-apps, mobile apps and even blogs. It's rewarding to see our product come to life at the hands of today's most innovative developers. They are building powerful things.
We're lucky to be in a business where we grow together with our customers, and we're proud to show off their hard work. Each blog in this series will feature a developer or a startup that has leveraged our financial data feeds to build something incredible.
These are their stories.
Intrinio is excited to announce the release of API Explorer, a free tool that makes it easier to check out the data types available in Intrinio's Fintech Marketplace. The API Explorer lets users select the data they would like to see and the companies they would like to see it for, and then outputs that data as well as the Excel, Google Sheets, CSV, and API syntax that would be needed to access that data using other tools. This article explains what the API explorer is, how to use it, and why we created it.
Intrinio is excited to announce the addition of the NASDAQ Global Press Releases data feed.

Data as of March 4th, 2017
Intrinio's mission is to make financial data affordable and accessible so investors can save money and make time to build something meaningful. We have been hard at work on the "affordable" part of our mission, adding new data feeds to the marketplace so our users can access more data types in our pay-for-use model.
Now, we are excited to announce some serious progress on the "accessible" part of our mission. It is now possible to query the Intrinio financial database via API and receive responses in CSV format. In other words, you can download Intrinio data in bulk to CSV and open it in Excel for further analysis.
