MuleSoft deploys Anypoint for Christchurch Council

By

Christchurch City Council has deployed IT solutions provider MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform to build a series of system integrations and open data APIs designed to enable government agencies and third parties access to provide enhanced experiences to citizens of the municipality.

The Council says that by securely exposing historical city data to approved third parties and agencies citizens will benefit from the release of innovative new products and services.

“By creating an application network through API-led connectivity, we’re able to quickly serve up data required by third party companies to deliver digital experiences to Christchurch Citizens and can invite outside organisations to plug into our network to drive even further innovation,” says Adrian Dawson, Christchurch City Council service manager.

“Since launching the open data API program, we’ve already seen many organisations jump at the chance to access this data and use it to start delivering cutting-edge services to our citizens.”

The Council released its first open data API created using Anypoint Platform in June.

The “Property Data API” unlocks data historically siloed in the Council’s internal property data warehouses and makes it easy for real estate agencies, researchers, application developers and other government departments to access historical property information including sales and pricing data.

Dawson said that by making the data accessible to third parties, citizens would be able to more readily access insights on property ownership over time.

Previously, external parties seeking access to records had to email their request to the Council and were then provided with a CSV file containing the records manually drawn from an SQL database.

The council says requests can now be made with a simple API call, reducing the time it takes to fulfil these requests to seconds.
