IT Monkey:    
Effective January 30, 2018 this app has been retired by Cireson. Cireson will no longer provide future feature updates, security patches, or support. However, the functionality you know and love has been enhanced and integrated into the new True Control Center.

To get the most of out of your System Center investment and to ensure compatibility with other software applications and systems, we recommend you take advantage of the True Control Center. Take it for a test drive in our online demo lab or request a free 30-day trial.

Is there a documented API for the Ticker App?

I wanted to see if a 3rd party tool could invoke an announcement towards a specific collection.

    Hi Stefan,

    Great question.
    It is not possible to add any automation around the Ticker App at this point; you will have to use the app.

    When we post the announcement, we save the announcement data to a Hardware Class.
    But even if you export that inventory data, changing it and re-importing wouldn't help, since we add some verification data to the announcement to ensure no one can do what you propose :-)

    Of course we would allow you as a ConfigMgr admin to do, but we want to ensure no one else can send something to your clients.

    What you are proposing could certainly be possible to do. Go, create a feature request for the Ticker App:

    For example, an email notification is sent out but that script also invokes an announcement be sent to workstations.
