About Data as a Service

DaaS can be complex, but it doesn’t have to be for the business owner. By giving business owners access to such a vast collection of content, you can access many benefits. Here are a few of the common questions asked regarding Data as a Service and Nexis®.

What is Data as a Service?

Data as a Service gives businesses access to data, which they invest in as a service. Traditionally, companies have managed data storage internally. However in today’s fast-evolving landscape of digital, data storage and data security is more difficult. For that reason, many businesses outsource the management of complex data—reducing cost and effort in the process.

Data as a Service allows you to access global data at the click of a button, as you glean business intelligence to make data-driven decisions. Nexis® Data as a Service includes content such as text, sound files, images and videos—across a source universe of over 80,000.

Delegate your data management, storage and security with Nexis® DaaS. We take on the risks and responsibilities of Big Data management, so you can receive data on any device wherever you are, wherever you need it.

What is an API?

An Application Programming Interface (API) enables our customers to connect to our world-class database, in a format that suits their existing applications. APIs act as a messenger between two applications, allowing them to communicate without knowing how the other application is implemented. An API delivers your request to the provider, and then delivers information back to you. There are APIs available for nearly every machine or system which interacts with other applications.

Over the years, our data scientists have refined our cloud-based API: resulting in a high-speed technology solution which aggregates relevant data from a wide selection of sources and topics. Our API curates content to support in-depth analysis of trends and developments, helping you remain at the forefront of your industry and driving business growth.

There are many benefits associated with Data as a Service, and Big Data in particular.
