On December 19th, the Intuit Partner Platform (IPP) will be releasing the IPP Customer Account Data API to over 60 third party developers in a broader Limited Availability wave, moving one step closer to a public offering in the data aggregation and categorization market.
Why are we doing this?
Intuit has been using this in-house aggregation and categorization engine in products like Quicken, QuickBooks, and Mint.com for a number of years. Additionally, Intuit has sold the access to this functionality to select financial institutions over the last few years, but the previous integration process required white-glove level professional services and high touch developer support. Intuit recognized a growing demand for broader access and over the past year we've worked hard to make the technology available in a self-serve fashion, so that 3rd party developers can access the technology through IPP in a scalable and economical way.
What's new in this release?
In an effort to enhance IPP developer experience, we
- have combined the functionality of multiple IPP identities into one simple login for developers using the Customer Account Data API
- are now leveraging Stack Overflow for developer forums for IPP topics
- a new robust back-end implementation for management of IPP developer support incidents
IPP developers can now experience a fully integrated experience at developer.intuit.com – whether they want to access QuickBooks data using an Intuit Anywhere apps or Customer Account Data.
How can I get access ?
External developers who would like to get advanced access to the API can sign up at http://developer.intuit.com/agg-cat/index.html and we will contact you as we open up access to the service more broadly.
