We Need More APIs

THE most constant pain in my ass is getting equivalent datasets in radically different formats. Every single insurance company records the same friggen data in different ways.

And if that wasn’t enough, whoever downloads this data then gets their grubby little paws all over it (usually mannually effing around with rows and columns in excel… [vomit]) before sending it to me.

I want machine data, I do NOT want people data. It is infuriatingly complicated cleaning up these datapiles and would all be better if they’d just give me access to their machines.

I’m reminded of the Matrix.
