Dialog announced the launch of its Dialog API, a Web Service that enables Dialog’s content collection and search engine to be integrated transparently into Web sites, enterprise portals, corporate intranets and extranets, software applications and other interactive services. Dialog API is designed for Web site developers, software programmers, enterprise information managers and others to integrate slices of the more than 14 terabytes of premium content — a vast and continuously updated electronic warehouse of news, business intelligence, current and archived journal articles, patents and research across an array of industries and topics — along with the Dialog search engine that allows users to pinpoint the specific documents they need within the content sets. Dialog and Cymfony announced that they are now bundling Dialog content — including business, trade and consumer publications; content from the pharmaceutical, medical and healthcare industries, among others; comprehensive local market intelligence; and worldwide news coverage from 80 countries in 11 languages — with Cymfony Brand Dashboard, a media measurement and analytics application. Dialog API is based on XML & SOAP. www.dialog.com, www.thomson.com, www.cymfony.com
