I’m a big fan of Pngme APIs for Subsaharan Africa, especially the platform’s ability to make it easy for developers to work with data in a way that doesn’t leave them vulnerable to fraud. And, I’m very interested in seeing what else the company has to offer. In this article, we’ll go over some of the features that are included in the platform. You’ll find out how to get access to the platform’s entire library of content, how to build partnerships with tier-one banks, and how to control permissions so that developers can have a clearer view of what is and isn’t being shared.
Get access to Imgur’s entire library of content
Imgur is one of the fastest growing photo sharing websites. With over 250 million users, it’s become a popular tool for sharing images and browsing visual stories. It’s also easy to use.
Imgur allows you to share images, upload your own images, and create public image galleries. You can add titles and descriptions to your images, and tag other users. To start using Imgur’s API, run the free tool Postman.
The Imgur API is based on OAuth 2.0 authentication. The client_id and client_secret are required. If the client is denied permissions, the error will be returned in a query string parameter.
A client can only access a limited number of images each day. However, commercial usage does not count toward the daily limit. In addition, API calls deduct a credit from your allocation for each call. For more information, see the Imgur Advertising Policies.
Permission control to give developers more control over who can see their data
Permission control has always been a big part of the enterprise IT picture, but it has been getting more attention of late. This is in part thanks to the introduction of container objects. Objects within containers are given a set of permissions based on their role within the container. These allow for a greater variety of network resources to be protected, while simplifying access control management.
For starters, the most important feature is a well-defined group of users. A group account can be a convenient way to assign rights to different groups of users. You can also grant the appropriate permissions to individual user accounts. If the goal is to provide the highest possible degree of security to your data, a container object may be the best choice.
There’s a lot to consider here, and some important questions to ask are what data are you sharing with apps, and how are you using it. Among other things, you want to be able to control who gets to see and edit it, and what they can do with it.
Pngme, an artificial intelligence powered financial data infrastructure platform, has just raised $15 million in Series A funding. The round was led by Octopus Ventures and followed a $3 million seed round led by angel investor Hayden Simmons of RallyCap. In addition to the funding, Pngme is making its presence known with a series of high-profile hires. They’ve also got a new CSO in Lorraine Kageni Maina.
As a fintech company, Pngme’s core offerings are APIs, credit data APIs, and a customer management platform. These services help financial institutions create enhanced credit reports and automate lending in the sub-Saharan African market.
According to the company, the best part about the technology is that the infrastructure cost can be completely rolled into the service. This means that the startup can charge subscription prices to customers. It’s also possible to use the data aggregation and unification capability of Pngme to power a variety of applications in the financial sector.
Partnerships with tier-one banks
Several fintech startups are raising money to drive their business to the next level. One of the most recent is Pngme, a financial data infrastructure company based in San Francisco. The company plans to use its funding to expand its product and engineering teams.
It will also expand its sales team and its executive team. Its platform is a credit data API that offers tools to help financial institutions build enhanced credit reports. The company says its products are designed to increase lifetime value for customers. This includes its ability to lower loan defaults.
Pngme’s three core offerings are: a data processing pipeline, a customer management platform and a mobile SDK. They are designed for financial institutions in sub-Saharan Africa. Their clients include tier-one banks in Nigeria and South Africa. These companies offer machine learning-driven products and services, and use Pngme’s platform to aggregate alternative financial data.
