Aspose are delighted to find ourselves on the SD Times 100 list again this year. It’s an inspiring list and we’re pleased to be in the company of companies such as IBM and Microsoft (AML & Development Tools), Amazon and Google (The Cloud), and Android Open Source Project and Apply (Mobile). You’ll find us in the APIs, Libraries and Frameworks category. Considering that accolade, this seems the perfect time to tell you about our new platform: Aspose for Cloud.
We’ve worked with all kinds of software developers over the years. Recently, an increasing number of our customers work in a SaaS (Software as a Service) environment. To give them access to our services, we’ve made several of our APIs RESTful. Aspose for Cloud is the result: a new platform with a whole new set of user-friendly, efficient APIs. You’ll find out more about our Cloud products in the Product Spotlight below, or in the announcement blog post. If you want to get stuck in, have a look at these examples which shows three different ways to get usage statistics.
