Open Data Streaming Program (ODSP)
Ably’s ODSP gives developers access to free realtime data sources and allows them to share their realtime data with others. The API Streamer platform and the related Ably Hub are designed to enable easy distribution and consumption of realtime data, without the concerns of scalability, protocol interoperability, infrastructure provisioning and API management. People can easily host and publish realtime data streams to any number of subscribers - for free, subject to a fair-use policy.
The wider goal of the API Streamer platform is to catalyze the realtime revolution. The API Streamer has multiple realtime data sources from around the world including, financial information, live sports data, transport information, and news updates. With these - and more - opened up to the developer community, the potential for innovation is huge.
Developers wanting to bring their products to market have the option to host their streaming data products on Ably’s app-store-like platform, the Ably Hub, making their streams more discoverable and easy to consume.
