Combined with Apigee’s Node.js runtime and tools, Apigee’s developer tools can deliver what developers need to quickly build well-designed APIs.

    Apigee Helping Kao Sales Teams ‘Look Good’ When Visiting Salons

    Forbes Global 2000 Company Leveraging Apigee API Management to Arm its Sales Representatives with Data – Creating Premium Beauty Experience

     

    SAN JOSE, Calif.,  – Apigee® (NASDAQ: APIC), the API company, today announced that Kao Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of premium beauty care brands like Jergens®, John Frieda® and Goldwell®, has selected the Apigee Edge API management software to help the Global 2000 company build and deliver modern APIs and apps. Today, Kao Corporation’s Apigee-powered Sales Partner mobile app promotes sales efficiencies by arming its sales representatives with near-real time sales data and customer information delivered online or offline on iPads. Digital solutions like the Sales Partner app are designed to help Kao maintain its position as an industry leader in today’s increasingly mobile and digital world.

    For more than 120 years, Kao Corporation has been representing premium skin and hair care brands that are recognized worldwide for their innovation and quality. In addition to Jergens®, John Frieda®, and Goldwell®, iconic Kao brands in the AEMEA division also include Curél® body lotions, Ban® antiperspirants, Bioré® facial care, and Guhl® and KMS California® hair care products.  Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, Kao Corporation generates $12.16B in annual sales and has a market cap of approximately $26B as of May 2016.

    Kao selected Apigee’s API platform to help build apps that more easily integrate with partners and external systems, including mobile and cloud solutions. The company’s recently launched Sales Partner app provides Kao sales representatives with a large amount of sales KPIs (key performance indicators), territory and customer data, easily accessible while visiting salon customers.  The app integrates with Kao’s core systems including ERP, business intelligence, and CRM.  It provides near-instant access to customer sales and product information such as high and low-performing product information and other critical sales data relevant to each customer. Future features leveraging Apigee will include more app-to-app integrations such as mobile order entry apps as well as product related and marketing asset apps.  The Kao apps using Apigee APIs can provide a connected and seamless experience for the sales rep so they can provide a premium beauty customer service for their salons.

     

    “In today’s hyper-connected world, gone are the days of stacks of outdated paper reports in the trunks of sales people’s cars, as well as isolated backend systems that may or may not be able to connect to each other -- let alone to external partners and mobile or cloud apps,” said Keith Soward, Application Group Manager at Kao USA. “Our customers want immediate access to real-time product and customer data, custom-tailored to their needs.  We need to be agile and fast.  Sales and marketing teams can’t wait six months to get the app or data they need in order to drive sales.  We have to have our data available for new apps, new technology, new partners, and new ecosystems. 

    “Digital disruption is real and we want to disrupt the disrupters.  The specific Sales Partner apps using Apigee API management make our sales people look good when they walk into a salon and will help enhance our sales efficiencies and professionalism, empowering us to more aggressively compete with digital natives entering our industry,” he continued.

    “Adapting to the new digital world is a requirement in many industries today, and beauty care is no exception,” said Ed Anuff, Apigee’s senior vice president of strategy.  “Global manufacturing companies like Kao Corporation are seeking to easily expose their internal systems to create personalized and engaging customer experiences.  We believe that through solutions like the Salon Partner app, Apigee’s API management can help enable Kao Corporation increase customer engagement and interaction time, and ultimately drive more sales.”

      SAN JOSE, Calif. – June 22, 2016 – Apigee® (NASDAQ: APIC), the API company, today announced the Adapt or Die World Tour, a series of digital business how-to events held in major cities across the globe. Adapt or Die events are content-rich, one-day conferences focused on #DigitalKnowHow. They are designed to deliver unprecedented levels of expertise and information on how businesses can leverage APIs to adapt and thrive in today’s rapidly evolving digital world.

      Registration for the kick-off Adapt or Die event in San Francisco on Sept. 27, 2016, is now open.  A highlight of the San Francisco event will be the premier of Adapt or Die: an exciting and unexpected action adventure film about the promise and peril of digital disruption. To register for the Adapt or Die event in San Francisco today, go here or to adapt.apigee.com.

      “At Apigee, we’ve always loved APIs, and we are excited to see how companies across the globe are increasingly leveraging scalable, secure APIs as the foundation for digital business,” said Anurag Wadehra, Apigee chief marketing officer.  “To reflect what we believe to be the business-critical nature of APIs as essential components for companies to win in today’s digital economy, we’ve changed the name of the conference series from ‘I love APIs’ to ‘Adapt or Die.’

      “Adapt or Die events will showcase the leading-edge technology, business expertise, hands-on case studies and thought leadership that Apigee events are known for, and we’re now bringing them much closer to many of our customers,” he continued.

      Superior Content and Peer Learning: Not Mega Conference

      Apigee’s Adapt or Die events will be limited to an attendance of 500 people to allow for a more intimate and interactive environment that promotes meaningful discussions with peers and industry experts.

      Attendees can plan to gain deep insights from practitioners who are shaping the future of digital business across industries using APIs, including financial services and banking, media and entertainment, retail, healthcare, and telecommunications.

      “After listening to our customers, we knew we wanted to create an environment that would allow for greater networking opportunities and a chance to come away with real, tangible lessons for how to use APIs as part of a digital business today. These are benefits a larger conference often can’t deliver,” continued Wadehra.

      The “Adapt or Die” #DigitalKnowHow World Tour will kick-off at the iconic Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco on September, 27, 2016.  Additional Adapt or Die events will be held soon thereafter in Chicago, New York, Sydney and London.

            Forward-Looking Statements

            This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements regarding Apigee’s anticipated growth; the momentum and trends in its business, markets and certain vertical markets, and Apigee’s belief that it is positioned to drive and benefit from those trends; its forecasted positive operating cash flow; and its forecasted total revenue, license revenue, gross billings, non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss per share for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year 2016. Words such as “expect,” “will,” “believes,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.  These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks, and changes in circumstances that are difficult or impossible to predict. Consequently, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements.  Actual outcomes and results may differ materially from those contemplated by these forward-looking statements as a result of such uncertainties, risks, and changes in circumstances, including without limitation risks and uncertainties related to Apigee’s limited operating history; risks associated with its history of losses and its expectation of incurring losses for the foreseeable future; risks associated with the potential significant fluctuation of its future quarterly results and variances in its quarterly bookings, license revenue and operating cash flows; risks associated with revenue mix; risks associated with the effective management of its growth; risks associated with the role its strategic relationships with third parties plays in its growth; risks associated with market acceptance of its platform and Apigee Edge product; risks associated with Apigee’s experience in developing and introducing new products; risks associated with successfully implementing partnerships and strategic relationships; risks associated with Apigee’s ability to meet its customers’ needs for infrastructure capacity and the quality of its software, support and services; and risks associated with Apigee’s ability to obtain renewals from current customers.

            The foregoing list of factors is not exclusive.  Additional risks and uncertainties that could affect Apigee’s financial and operating results are included under the captions "Risk Factors" and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and elsewhere in Apigee’s Annual Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on March 4, 2016.  Apigee’s SEC filings are available on the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website at http://investors.apigee.com and on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.  Apigee disclaims any obligation to update the forward-looking statements provided to reflect any change in its expectations or any change in events, conditions, or circumstances on which any such statement is based.

            Non-GAAP Financial Measures

            Apigee provides the following non-GAAP financial measures in this release and in the earnings call referencing this press release: gross billings, product gross billings, non-GAAP license gross margin, non-GAAP subscription and support gross margin, non-GAAP professional services gross margin, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating loss, non‑GAAP net loss, and non-GAAP net loss per share.  These non-GAAP items are key measures used by our management to understand and evaluate our operating performance and trends.  In particular, because a number of these measures exclude certain non-cash expenses, they can provide useful measures for period-to-period comparisons of our business.

            Apigee uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its operating results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating its ongoing operational performance. Apigee believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends.

            Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as substitutes for, their most directly comparable financial measure prepared in accordance with GAAP.  A reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.  Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these historical non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

            We calculate non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP license gross margin, non-GAAP subscription and support gross margin, non-GAAP professional services gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, non-GAAP research and development expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss as the respective GAAP balances, adjusted for: (1) stock-based compensation and (2) the amortization of intangible assets. Non-GAAP net loss per share is calculated as non-GAAP net loss divided by GAAP weighted average shares outstanding.

            We define gross billings as our total revenue plus the change in our deferred revenue in a period. We define product gross billings as our total product revenue (where product is defined as license, subscription and support) plus the change in our license, subscription and support deferred revenue in a period. Gross billings and product gross billings in any period consists of sales to new customers plus renewals and additional sales to existing customers. Our management uses gross billings and product gross billings as a performance measurement because we believe that gross billings and product gross billings provide valuable insight into the sales of our solutions and the performance of our business.  On certain transactions, a portion of gross billings will be recognized as revenue over a period of more than 12 months.  We do not consider gross billings as a substitute for revenue recognition or revenue measurement.

            With respect to Apigee’s outlook under “Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2016 Guidance” and "Full Year Fiscal 2016 Guidance" above, Apigee has not reconciled its expectations regarding non-GAAP loss from operations to GAAP loss from operations, nor reconciled non-GAAP net loss per share to GAAP net loss per share, because stock-based compensation expenses cannot be reasonably predicted and calculated.  Accordingly, reconciliation is not available without unreasonable effort.

                Apigee Announces New Open Banking Solution for PSD2

                 

                API Management Leader Teaming with Accenture to Help EU Banks Accelerate Path to Open Banking Spurred by the Recent Adoption of PSD2 by the European Parliament

                 

                LONDON — OPEN BANKING & PSD2 SUMMIT —  Apigee® (NASDAQ: APIC), developer of a leading API platform, today announced Apigee Open Banking APIx, a new software solution designed to help banks within the European Union (EU) more quickly and easily embrace open banking requirements generally set out in the revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2). Built on the Apigee Edge API platform, Apigee Open Banking APIx features pre-built application programming interfaces (APIs) for banking, an open banking developer portal, and additional tools to help empower financial institutions to securely share data and build an ecosystem of partners and customers.

                In anticipation of the final adoption of PSD2 by EU Cabinet of Ministers and subsequent enforcement of PSD2 at the member state level, Apigee is teaming with leading global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company Accenture to work on developing customized client solutions for open banking spurred by PSD2. At Apigee’s Open Banking & PSD2 Summit in London today, Apigee is showcasing its Open Banking APIx solution together with industry use cases developed by Accenture. The collaboration is a part of the ongoing Apigee and Accenture global alliance that was established in 2013.

                “We applaud the fact that the industry is moving quickly toward open banking in the EU and incorporating clarity on the use of emerging payment methods, such as mobile and online,” said Anurag Wadhera, Apigee vice president, solutions. “In the open banking model, value for financial institutions may come less from owning and protecting data, and more from sharing and leveraging key assets. Our open banking accelerator solution, together with Accenture’s banking industry thought leadership, is designed to demystify this process and help banks reap the potential benefits of open banking faster.”

                 

                PSD2 Requires APIs

                PSD2, established by the European Commission and currently pending the adoption by the EU Counsel of Ministers, is a major policy development set to impact the payments industry across Europe. The PSD2 seeks to standardize and make interoperable card, Internet, and mobile payments. PSD2 may accelerate open banking because it requires banks to open up data and transactions to certain new payment market entrants. By January 2018, all financial institutions in the 28 EU member states need to be PSD2 compliant.

                "PSD2 presents a business opportunity as well as a compliance obligation," said Simon Hamilton from Nationwide Building Society. "For us, open APIs are a key element of an open banking strategy. We are working with Apigee and Accenture to get our PSD2 programme up and running quickly, with the right underlying technology, in a way that can empower us to take full advantage of the benefits of this new business model.  It is readily apparent that the combined team is extremely committed to our shared vision."

                PSD2 requires that banks provide open access to regulated third parties to customer account information, transaction information, and payment initiation to these new third-party payment providers via APIs (per the PSD2 XS2A rule), while meeting stringent requirements for strong authentication and secure communication. According to analysts at Gartner, “Banks will be required to provide API access to customer accounts…This will require bank investment in application service governance and API management.  For example, most financial institutions will need to build or buy an API management gateway and create new APIs to provide access to customer accounts.”[1]

                “Regulatory changes in Europe such as the PSD2 may accelerate payments innovation to a new phase of development for EU banks,” said Jeremy Light, managing director, Accenture Payment Services. “Banks must be ready to embrace these changes as catalysts for positive innovation. Accenture has significant experience working with our financial services clients to implement both front- and back-end API transformation. We believe it is essential that banks work with an API management platform that facilitates secure access with partners and developers while also providing strong security controls, and we look forward to continuing to working with Apigee to help deliver their solution.”

                 

                Apigee Open Banking APIx

                 

                Apigee Open Banking APIx leverages Apigee Edge, Apigee’s flagship product and leading API management software.

                • A collection of pre-configured API proxies for banking APIs such as Payment Transfer, Account Information, Transactions History, Sufficient Funds, and Financial Products APIs;
                • Payment Initiation Service Provider (PISP) and Account Information Service Provider (AISP) - specific workflows, as well as API product monetization;
                • Pre-integrated OAuth security framework to support different access models for internal apps or third-party providers, such as PISPs, AISPs and Fintechs;
                • Support for the XS2A rule in PSD2 through end-user authentication using the OpenID Connect standard to allow multiple authentication models, two-factor authentication, and consent capture and management.

                 

                By leveraging Apigee Edge, Apigee Open Banking APIx also gives operators the benefits of Apigee API management, including API security, API analytics, API monetization, and developer on-boarding capabilities.

                  New Apigee customers running on AWS include AccuWeather,  Allstate Corporation, OpenGov Inc., and Sage Payment Solutions, among other businesses in financial services, insurance, retail, media, technology and other industries

                   

                  SAN JOSE, Calif. – Apigee® (NASDAQ: APIC), developer of a leading API platform for digital business, today announced that dozens of companies signed on to use the Apigee Edge API management software on Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the first calendar quarter of 2016. New Apigee customers using AWS for Apigee’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud product include AccuWeather, Allstate Corporation, OpenGov Inc., and Sage Payment Solutions, among other leading companies in the financial services, insurance, retail, media and technology industries.

                  “We’re collaborating with AWS to give Apigee’s SaaS customers the benefit of a proven, industry-leading cloud platform to power their API programs,” said Chet Kapoor, Apigee CEO. “Today’s modern enterprises use APIs to become digital businesses - delivering strategic mobile apps, growing partner and developer ecosystems, and creating new levels of internal efficiencies. We find that AWS gives our cloud customers confidence that they can scale their API programs as they grow, with strong performance.”

                  Apigee Edge is a leading API management platform used by hundreds of enterprises worldwide, including 30 percent of the companies in the Fortune 100, to help securely deliver and manage the APIs that power mobile applications and other digital initiatives.

                  “Apigee shares AWS’s commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction,” said Terry Wise, vice president of Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “AWS provides companies of all sizes, across all industries with on-demand, highly elastic, reliable technology resources on the cloud.  As more and more companies utilize the cloud, they want an easy, painless way to migrate their large and complex IT infrastructures to AWS, and to use the security and management controls that their IT teams already know. Apigee enables companies of all types to do this with the APIs they’re already using, while leveraging the power of AWS.”

                  “At OpenGov, we’re focused on delivering a powerful financial transparency and business intelligence platform for governments. As a software-as-a-service provider, we need a technology platform with the services and performance we can rely on. With Apigee Edge Cloud built on AWS, we get the benefits of AWS’s proven cloud-based services along with the full suite of Apigee’s API management capabilities, which includes monetization, analytics, Node.js support, and more,” said Tim Rodriguez, senior software engineer at OpenGov, Inc.

                   

                  Apigee Reference Architecture for AWS Developers

                  Apigee recently announced a new reference architecture designed to make it easier for developers to use the richly featured Apigee Edge API management software on AWS. It provides a resource that documents best practices for considerations such as security and performance when developing Apigee-powered applications using AWS services.

Jeremy Light, managing director at Accenture Payment Services, will be joined by Javier Santamaria, chairman at the European Payments Council, and Paul Rohan, author of the just-released book, PSD2 in Plain English, to review the current state of open banking and identify how APIs can be used.  Additionally, the founder of The Open Bank Project, Simon Redfern, will present on the day.

                     

                    “PSD2 and open banking compliance is now a pressing issue among financial institutions, and many in the industry are searching for best practices. At the Summit, leading financial services brands will pull back the curtain and share their approaches to gearing up for this initiative,” said Denis Dorval, Apigee vice president of EMEA. “Attendees can expect to come away with a fresh outlook on their payment systems and a better understanding for how they can move forward to address PSD2 today.”
