In sitecore 7.2 I had customized sitecore web api to expose data from sitecore to external system as API.

I am just wondering if something new/enhanced has been added in sitecore 8.2 to expose data from sitecore to external system.

  • I think you can try to use Sitecore Data Exchange Framework.

You can use Sitecore Client Services to expose data from Sitecore

Sitecore.Services.Client provides a service layer on both the server and the client side of Sitecore applications that you use to develop data-driven applications.

Sitecore.Services.Client is configurable and extendable, and the framework and scaffolding it provides help you create the client-server communication in an application in a consistent way. Sitecore.Services.Client uses the ASP.NET Web API as a foundation.
