NewsKnowledge's API provides web services for custom integration of news and business information into enterprise applications

This new application programming interface allows developers to create custom applications that integrate NewsKnowledge's functionality and content into end-users' workflow systems such as customer relationship management software (CRM), Intranets, Portals and enterprise resource planning software (ERP).

This XML-based API provides developers with total flexibility and a simplified development path to customization that previously would have required months of co-development. For getting access to our service you can use any of accessible methods, such as SOAP and HTTP.

Real-time online news has become integral to a wide range of business and consumer applications. The NewsKnowledge Web Service API provides developers with easy-to-integrate real-time news search and feed functionality that can be embedded into custom applications, portals or websites.

How It Works:
  • A user searches for company information or news articles by entering search parameters into a user interface
  • NewsKnowledge API takes the search parameters and sends the query to the NewsKnowledge database
  • NewsKnowledge sends requested information back to the client through the API. Data is processed through a client side style sheet or application, and presented to the user

API Web Service features:
  • Flexible application, web and system integration
  • Web Service API lets you work directly with your feeds
  • Direct search queries to the NewsKnowledge news database
  • Transaction-based billing
  • Use SOAP or HTTP to easily access our service
  • Delete, update, save and configure feeds from your application

How NewsKnowledge's API works
  • Built on top of the proven NewsKnowledge database engine - inherits many of the NewsKnowledge Feed Configurator features.
  • Using industry standard API's and SOAP, NewsKnowledge Web Service API can be embedded within .NET, Java, PHP, ASP, ATOM or other applications

News search

The NewsKnowledge Web Service API provides direct access to the extremely powerful, fast and scalable NewsKnowledge news search engine. The API provides a wide range of query and standards-based output options to ensure compatibility. Search queries can be constructed using simple keywords, phrases and Boolean operators.
