APIs (application programming interfaces) allow apps and devices speak to one another. They enable the seamless connectivity that drives the Internet of Everything. But today many developers have become overwhelmed with multiple provider APIs with proprietary data formats and semantics. Each manual integration has become a time consuming task. In addition, providers struggle with making their data available to applications in a simple way and therefore lack developer reach for adoption of their services.

CloudRail has solved these problems. Software developers can now use CloudRail for automatic integration into a broad offering of leading cloud services and smart devices. This includes the Top 10 service based APIs, e.g. Dropbox, Facebook, and connected home devices such as Nest and Philips Hue. Developers can also easily extend the current integrations by adding functionality or creating completely new services to the CloudRail integration database. The result of the CloudRail Universal API solution is a dramatic reduction in the development time required for an integration from days to just hours.

The CloudRail Universal API and integrations are free for developers. CloudRail and the developer community will be creating the interoperability standard platform of the future.

Developers can get started immediately with the API to Everything at CloudRail's Universal API is available for Java and Android developers, with iOS and other platforms coming soon.
