S&P Global Platts Data via Machine-to-Machine Delivery

S&P Global Platts developments in machine delivery are driving faster and more intuitive access to data and analytics. By using integrated datasets and analysis across commodities, geographies, and the supply chain, users will have a truly connected view of what is driving change in the markets.

New APIs to Deliver Commodity Insights and Data

The recent introduction of two new fundamental data APIs—the World Refinery Database API (WRD) and the Platts Oil Inventory API—is the beginning of a multi-year effort to provide fundamental commodity insights and data from our highly valued analytics services, to direct ‘machine consumption’ in customer back-end systems, quantitative models, or data lake build outs, to highlight some examples.

These new APIs join S&P Global Platts’ more extensive API and data-feed offerings and can  now be found both in the commodity-specific Platts Developer Portal (developer.platts.com) and in the broader S&P Global Marketplace (marketplace.spglobal.com).
