an amazing gift you were totally not expecting…

Amazing news today!
Headed up by a select group of resorts and software vendors, an initiative is currently underway to create a new Application Programming Interface (API) Standards specification that software system providers can adhere to, and solution architects can easily consume. The intent is to address the need for aggregating disparate systems in an effort to build “best of breed” solutions while retaining the ability to integrate legacy and/or monolithic systems, concurrently, and seamlessly. The development of this new Standards specification is rapidly gaining momentum, the cadence is quick, an overarching core tenet is openness, adherence is encouraged, and guidance is forthcoming. Look forward to an initial draft of this new Standards specification some time in 2020.
