Yahoo! is in the process of releasing its Open Strategy with the goal of connecting more people in more ways than ever before.
Y!OS is a platform at it’s core, accessible via an API layer by applications that can be built by anyone and run on or off of Yahoo!. Y!OS can be used to completely rewire Yahoo!, putting an open architecture at Yahoo!’s core and adding a horizontal social dimension across Yahoo! and beyond.
There are three major goals to Y!OS:
- Creating a social dimension
- Opening Yahoo! (both data and application UI)
- Rewiring Yahoo! properties with a new architecture built on this new Open Platform.
Neal Sample & Cody Simms walk you through the entire Y!OS platform.
