It’s common these days for digital transformation projects for lines-of-business teams to require integration. These folks tend to be less technical but have projects, such as creating an omnichannel experience, that requires data from backend systems to be unlocked. These people can struggle to integrate their legacy systems that don’t have APIs or lack visibility into what APIs are available for the endpoints they need to connect to get the job done.
Get ready to have everything you knew about business monetization turned upside down and inside out.

APIs can’t help cure COVID-19, but they can be used by developers to collect data about the outbreak, track its spread, and even produce data visualizations. Over the past month, ProgrammableWeb has been tracking APIs that provide access to data related to the pandemic. Here are 30 APIs that let developers leverage the available data about the virus.
