What is an API and Why Should Your Business Care?

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.

FDIC Data for Banks [Call, UBPR & Y-9C Reports]

Intrinio was founded on the principle that making financial data affordable and accessible has the potential to ignite innovation in an archaic industry. First, we built our technology and used it to get full coverage of US equity data. Then we started looking for new data sets that needed to be freed from the shackles of oligopolistic pricing. We stumbled upon FDIC data, and what we built has become truly exciting. 

Because of our technology, we're able to serve this data up at a fraction of the cost of other providers. What was once a premium product reserved only for large organizations (who overpay as well) is now affordable and accessible. Eat your heart out.
