Welcome to BurstIQ Developer Docs

Hello, fellow developers. Welcome to the private beta release of the BurstIQ APIs. This documentation will help you get started using the APIs, making queries, creating consent contracts, and more.

BurstIQ is continuously evolving, so you can expect that this developer guide (and to a lesser extent, the APIs themselves) will evolve too. If you find that these documents are missing information or instructions that would be helpful for you, please let us know so that we can improve these documents.

Getting Help

You should have access to the Developer Community Slack workspace. If you don’t, please email us at

The Slack workspace is the best forum to talk with each other and with the BurstIQ development team. Feel free to ask questions, share ideas, provide feedback, etc. Please note that other developers are also on Slack, so don’t post anything confidential, in general chat channels.

Secure Data Grid

The core of the BurstIQ platform is the Secure Data Grid. The Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provides:

  • Distributed management
  • Tech Support
  • High-Availability (HA)
  • Disaster-Recovery (DR)
  • BigData engine
  • User-control of data structures (flexible definitions, from unstructured to tightly structured)
  • Bulk ingest of common file formats
    • Mapping
    • Transforms of data
    • Job control
  • Transaction operations (ie CRUD operations)
  • Ready-to-use analytics portal (AdaptiveIQ)
  • HIPAA/HITECH compliant
  • NIST compliance
  • SOC 2 Type II Certification

Within the Platform the client can choose to store data in a blockchain, called BurstChain®, or in NoSql, called IQ. All of the benefits above are available in either choice.
