News : Blackbaud Announces General Availability of SKY API
Charleston, SC, USA, Dec 8, 2016 -- Blackbaud, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLKB), a cloud software company powering social good, announced that SKY API™ for Raiser’s Edge NXT™ and Financial Edge NXT™ is now generally available to customers and partners.
"Today’s announcement builds on the 2015 release of our open SKY UX, and launches the first wave of what will be a very rich set of SKY APIs supporting the social good community," said Mary Beth Westmoreland, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Blackbaud. "By giving our customers and partners access to open, REST APIs, we’re enabling them to connect and integrate Blackbaud solutions with other applications and services that are critical to their mission success."
Blackbaud is actively empowering its developer community with tools to support its open innovation, and has already received industry praise for its SKY API developer portal. Vlad Vinogradsky, principal product manager from Microsoft’s API management team said, "Developers leveraging Blackbaud’s SKY API have robust tools at their fingertips. The SKY API Developer Portal, powered by the Azure API Management product, is excellent and probably the best portal I’ve ever seen in terms of how carefully it was built out. Blackbaud’s team has put a lot of effort behind it and has worked closely with our product team allowing us to provide valuable feedback throughout the development process."
