Why do we need an API strategy?

Update: Due to a late breaking bug in final QA, we are moving the transition to December 1 to keep data integrity a priority. 

We’re pleased to announce that the Devices Dashboard is now available in the Station Analytics System (SAS)! The dashboard will add to our new tab titled “Sources”, and provide stations the opportunity to compare website traffic trends across those visitors using Desktop, Smartphone and Tablet. You will also be able to view what those trends look like compared to the average station. This chart shows information about website traffic only (and does not include information about streaming or on-demand traffic).
