AUSTIN, Texas, May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Stratfor, the world’s leading geopolitical intelligence platform, announced the launch of the Stratfor Enterprise API to allow organizations to integrate the firm’s independent intelligence, analysis and forecasts into their own internal business and communications systems. Recognizing that today’s leading companies increasingly rely on a wide spectrum of information sources and workflow tools to inform decision-making, the API allows clients to better leverage objective geopolitical intelligence, analysis and industry perspectives to fuel strategic planning and global situational awareness.
“The complexity of today’s business and international environment means professionals need to simplify where they can. That’s what Stratfor analysts do each day, helping our members understand what is ‘significant’ from what’s merely important so they can make better decisions,” said Stratfor President Chip Harmon. “With the launch of our API, we can now deliver dynamic access to those insights for our enterprise clients in the most seamless way possible. It’s an important step forward for both Stratfor and our clients seeking an edge in today’s marketplace.”
This API solution will be available to Stratfor Worldview for Enterprise clients and strategic partners leveraging the platform’s core geopolitical intelligence and forecasting to manage risk and identify new opportunities. The API will also be available to clients of Stratfor Threat Lens, a product that helps corporate security leaders identify, anticipate, measure and mitigate risks that emerging threats pose to their people, assets and interests around the world.
Stratfor’s versatile API tools give client teams the ability to automate manual processes; efficiently share insights across channels or workflows; and personalize functionality to their individual focus or specific goals. By utilizing the API for Stratfor Threat Lens, corporate security teams can filter information by threat and content type or go much more in depth by integrating country threat indices, statistics or global coordinates for events and incidents. The API for Stratfor Worldview empowers enterprise clients to receive a full content experience or search content using advanced criteria like tags, locations, content type or date.
“Today’s modern global enterprise wants the ability to automate the integration of impactful, third party content into their corporate systems rather than needing to constantly reach outside of their own ecosystem for information, which impacts their response time and is inefficient,” said Stratfor Chief Product Officer Ken Maranian. “The Stratfor Enterprise API allows them to meld their own analysis with the depth and forward looking insight they value from Stratfor’s analyst teams. The result is more informed decision-makers, grounded with context on unfolding trends and their potential impact on an organization’s strategic plans.”
The launch of the Stratfor Enterprise API is the latest in a series of innovative solutions to help businesses, governments and other organizations make informed decisions that lead to long term strategic growth.
