NTEN Open API Summary

NTEN recently published a solid little paper by Michelle Murrain and Katrin Verclas that sums up the state of open APIs in the nonprofit CRM sector.  It’s an important read if you believe in the importance of integrating tools.

There’s a lot of good stuff in this short paper, and I particularly appreciate that they make a clear distinction between “same machine” or “internal” APIs, which are only accessible to programs written in the same language running on the same machine, and web services or “externally accessible” APIs that can be used by any program, written in any language, running anywhere.

  1. Thanks, Jon — ‘solid’ is great 🙂 This can be a can of worms but I think we pulled it off. Now we just need to hype up the survey a bit more, since there are some key palyers who chose not to answer it.
