Customers Can Now Use Apigee Edge on a Public Cloud, on Premises or in a Hybrid Cloud Environment

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Apigee®, developer of an intelligent API platform for digital business, today announced that Apigee Edge now supports a hybrid cloud architecture through a new capability called “Apigee Edge Microgateway.”  With the introduction of Apigee Edge Microgateway, Apigee enables businesses to optimize the performance, availability and capacity of their API systems by deploying Apigee Edge on a self-service public cloud, on-premises infrastructure, or both through a hybrid cloud architecture.

 

“Apigee Edge has been available both on the cloud and as an on-premises solution, and we are now adding a hybrid cloud deployment option. With Apigee Edge Microgateway Apigee customers can get the simplicity and performance of lightweight, on-premises API management together with the scale and power of a cloud-hosted service,” said Anant Jhingran, Apigee chief technology officer. “This can lead to significantly reduced latency for internal enterprise applications with the flexibility to leverage Apigee Edge in the cloud for user-facing mobile or partners apps, for example.”

 

An API is a set of programming instructions that enable software applications to exchange data and “talk” to other applications. To deliver connected digital experiences to their customers, partners and employees, most organizations will rely on a variety of APIs – either built internally or by other organizations. The Apigee Edge API management platform helps enable organizations to securely deliver and manage APIs, with agility and at scale. Apigee Edge is designed to deliver the high throughput and scale required by the most demanding digital businesses; today Apigee supports billions of API calls per week.

 

Apigee Edge continues to be available both as an on-demand cloud service and an on-premises solution deployed in a customer’s private datacenter. In addition, Apigee Edge Microgateway adds a new hybrid cloud deployment option that leverages the availability and performance of the Apigee public cloud together with the performance of local, on-premises API management. Typically installed within a trusted network in close proximity to back-end target services, Apigee Edge Microgateway provides enterprise­-grade security and key features such as spike arrest, quota, and analytics, but with a smaller footprint than the full Apigee Edge platform. Apigee Edge Microgateway can help simplify deployment, reduce latency, and improve the performance of API programs powered by Apigee Edge.

 

Apigee Edge Microgateway is a new component of Apigee Edge that can be easily installed in an enterprise data center or in a cloud environment.  Customers can have it up and running in minutes on platforms such as RHEL, SUSE or CentOS. Apigee Edge Microgateway can share a server with the API implementations it manages or run on a separate server.

 

Availability

Apigee Edge Microgateway is available today for select customers and will be widely available later this year. To request an invitation to participate in the Apigee Edge Microgateway early adopter program, go to https://pages.apigee.com/edge-micro-request.html.

Apigee’s API management software helps Transavia securely deliver real-time data as the airline extends its digital ecosystem to partners and developers

 

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Apigee® (NASDAQ: APIC), developer of an intelligent API platform for digital business, today announced that Transavia, the Dutch low-cost carrier airline and a division of the Air France KLM Group, has selected Apigee’s API management software to help fulfill its vision of becoming the best digital airline in Europe. This vision includes a complete rebrand of Transavia’s offline and online presence to embrace the customer journey, from booking a ticket to arriving at one’s destination.

Transavia is leveraging APIs (application programming interfaces) and the Apigee Edge API management software to extend the airline’s digital ecosystem. Being a key delivery partner for implementing Transavia’s digital vision, Accenture helped Transavia to define its API strategy and to implement the Apigee API management software. Initially, the airline’s new API-based digital infrastructure will open up its backend information technology (IT) system as modern, RESTful APIs so it can securely share Transavia data with business partners. This will give its partners the opportunity to build a variety of mobile apps that incorporate real-time information about seat availability and pricing on Transavia flights. In the future, Transavia is planning to develop an internal API infrastructure to streamline data sharing and create new efficiencies between its enterprise IT divisions. It’s also encouraging the independent developer community to embrace its APIs to build more Transavia-powered apps.

“To help realize our vision of becoming Europe’s best digital airline, we need a new, modern technology foundation built on APIs. We are leveraging Apigee’s advanced API management to securely share our backend data, not only to partners, but also to employees and third-party developers,” said Roy Scheerder, Chief Commercial Officer, Transavia. “Apigee delivers advanced, proven API management software, and we are confident that it can scale with us as our digital ecosystem expands.”

Apigee’s intelligent API platform enables companies to provide connected digital experiences. Apigee helps businesses accelerate the pace at which they innovate, share their data and services, and adapt to rapidly changing customer and market needs. Apigee’s platform today includes Apigee Edge, its flagship API management product; Apigee Insights, an advanced predictive analytics product; and Apigee Link, an API-first product for the Internet of Thing (IoT).

Accenture, an Apigee alliance partner and one of the world’s leading organizations providing management consulting, technology and outsourcing services, is helping Transavia become a digital business using APIs. Accenture is working with Transavia to design, build, test and run elements of its digital ecosystem, using best-of-breed technology such as Apigee Edge. Leveraging the capabilities of Apigee enables Accenture to deliver innovative solutions for clients looking to seize opportunities as they develop into digital businesses. Accenture and Apigee formed a global alliance in 2013 to deliver solutions that help joint customers more easily build mobile applications and connect enterprise systems. 

Geert Batterink, managing director, Accenture Digital, said: “Transavia has the ambition to become the best digital airline in Europe. Accenture helped Transavia to define its API strategy and to implement the Apigee API management software. Apigee provides fundamental capabilities to build a digital platform for Transavia that will help it drive business growth, enhance the customer experience, and streamline operational processes. As a result, passengers, airline staff and business partners will all benefit from the platform and ecosystem that Transavia is realizing in its digital transformation.”

Ed Anuff, vice president of product strategy at Apigee said: “The airline industry is well aware of the need to quickly incorporate digital services to keep up with customer expectations and accelerate innovation. Transavia has a big vision and exciting opportunity to help define what it means to be a digital airline, and we are looking forward to supporting them on this important initiative.”

Popular UK supermarket chain leveraging APIs and Apigee to create connected digital experiences that integrate in-store and online shopping

June 23, 2015 –  Apigee® (NASDAQ: APIC), developer of an intelligent API platform for digital business, announced today that Waitrose, recently named the “Nation's Favourite Food Retailer”[1] in the UK, has selected the Apigee Edge API management software as key enabling technology for its digital transformation. Waitrose is using APIs (application programming interfaces) and Apigee to build a range of innovative applications that deliver new connected digital experiences for its employees and customers.

 

Waitrose is leveraging Apigee to help differentiate itself from competitors by delivering applications that integrate in-store and online shopping and make it faster and easier to find, manage and buy Waitrose items. The retailer’s initial APIs, which have gone live, enable employees to gain mobile access to product information within store, bringing improved customer service to the shop floor. Future consumer-facing mobile experiences will be underpinned by the Apigee platform and will go live in summer 2015.  

 

Harry Strover, head of IT Strategy & Architecture at Waitrose, said: “Customers have a range of different requirements when they enter a store, whether it be looking for the latest product information, checking out the latest reviews and prices, or simply making a purchase. It’s vital that we integrate all of these activities and deliver a personal and relevant experience around them, helping us to establish deeper relationships with our customers and engage with them in the way that works best for them.

 

“We want to be at the forefront of digital and Apigee is a key enabling platform for our digital transformation going forward. By managing, securing, analyzing and scaling APIs, Apigee can increase the speed at which we deliver digital experiences in a very competitive market. Apigee’s analytics capabilities will be key to measuring customer adoption and use and will allow us to further enhance the customer experience in-store and online.”

 

"Food retailers are operating in a time of great change in the UK supermarket industry, driven by the rise of convenience, online shopping, mobile and changes in shopping habits,” said Ed Anuff, vice president of product strategy at Apigee. “They need to be able to adapt and innovate quickly, flexibly and efficiently in order to better engage with their customers.

 

“Mobile provides new opportunities for retailers to have more meaningful interactions with customers through services such as geo-location, personalized offers and loyalty programs. Waitrose is one of the UK’s most popular retailers, and we look forward to helping it deliver an even better experience for its customers and employees through digital.”

 

APIs are a key technology for businesses in today’s digital world. Behind every mobile app, smart device and connected experience sits at least one API, enabling software applications to exchange data and “talk” to other applications.  Apigee’s intelligent API platform helps businesses use APIs to securely share data and services across devices to serve customers in a real-time, anywhere-anytime fashion and use data to continually improve the customer experience.

“API Health” helps DevOps teams keep a pulse on the vitals of APIs powering their mobile and Web applications

First of several upcoming new API monitoring services from Apigee

June 18, 2015 – Apigee® (NASDAQ: APIC), developer of an intelligent API platform for digital business, today announced API Health, new software-as-a-service (SaaS) that makes it easier for organizations to monitor the status of the APIs (application programming interfaces) that are powering their mobile and Web applications.  API Health is a simple and powerful service that delivers a standard set of key information on any API – including third party APIs – so that development and operations teams can know if the APIs they depend on are working. 

API Health is available for no cost as part of the Apigee Edge API management software and as a free, stand-alone service; it is the first of several upcoming new API monitoring services from Apigee.

“We have found that high availability of APIs is critical for delivering connected digital experiences through mobile and Web apps,” said Anant Jhingran, chief technology officer at Apigee. “While there are some expensive and complex monitoring tools on the market, many of our customers have expressed interest in a simple service that can help track their APIs and notify them of key variances. We are committed to helping every business be a digital business through APIs, and API Health makes API monitoring easier and less painful for any organization.”

Behind every mobile app, smart device and connected experience sits at least one API.  An API is a set of programming instructions that enable software applications to exchange data and “talk” to other applications. To deliver connected digital experiences to their customers, partners and employees, most organizations will rely on a variety of APIs – either built internally or by other organizations. Apigee’s intelligent API platform helps enable organizations to securely deliver and manage APIs, with agility at scale, as part of a digital business.

Apigee’s new API Health service is designed to help organizations detect and prevent the potential consequences of bad API performance such as poor application experience, user frustration, and lost revenue.

Key capabilities of API Health include:

·       Simplicity: API Health is a cloud-based service that collects key statistics on APIs by making calls into those APIs from globally distributed probes that measure not just their response times, but also their response accuracy.

·       Power: For advanced use cases, API Health allows users to create probes by linking multiple API calls where subsequent calls depend on the output of previous ones. This capability is important for modeling complex user experiences that depend on apps making a sequence of API calls to complete a single user interaction.

·       Global Reach: Data collected from these globally distributed probes allows DevOps teams to compare differences in success rates and response times of a given API as seen from the various locations around the world.

·       Integrated: Apigee Edge customers will be able to use the built-in API analytics in Apigee Edge to analyze the traffic generated by API Health to get a more complete end-to-end view of their APIs.

·       Flexibility: Built with an API-first approach, organizations can use the management APIs in API Health to integrate key information about the status of their APIs into their own dashboards.

Availability

API Health is available today as a beta version. To request an invitation to participate in the beta program, go to https://pages.apigee.com/api-health. Upon activation, users will be able to set up probes to start running regular check-ups on their APIs from multiple locations as frequently as once every 30 seconds. API Health will be generally available later this year.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements regarding Apigee’s anticipated growth and trends in its business, total revenue, license revenue, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, and gross billings for the company’s fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year 2015. 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 and experience developing and introducing new products; 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; risks associated with the seasonality of its business and variance in quarterly bookings, license revenue and cash flows from operations; 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 Edge product; risks associated with Apigee’s ability to meet its customers’ needs for infrastructure capacity and the quality of its software, support and services; risks associated with Apigee’s ability to obtain renewals from current customers; and risks associated with its revenue mix.   

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 424(b) prospectus dated April 23, 2015 filed with the SEC.  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, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share, and non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding.  These non-GAAP items are key measures used by our management to understand and evaluate our operating performance and trends.  In particular, because 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 sales and marketing expenses, non-GAAP research and development expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP net loss as the respective GAAP balances, adjusted for: (1) stock-based compensation and (2) the amortization of intangible assets.  Except with respect to Q4 2015, non-GAAP net loss per share is calculated as non-GAAP net loss divided by the non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding that are adjusted to assume the conversion of outstanding preferred shares to common shares as of the beginning of the period.  For Q4 2015, 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. Gross billings in any period consists of sales to new customers plus renewals and additional sales to existing customers. Our management uses gross billings as a performance measurement because we generally bill our customers at the time of sale of our solutions and recognize revenue either upon delivery or ratably over subsequent periods, and a portion of our revenue may be recognized over a period of more than 12 months.  We believe that gross billings provides valuable insight into the sales of our solutions and the performance of our business.

With respect to Apigee’s outlook under “Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2015 Guidance” and "Full Year Fiscal 2015 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.

Businesses that build digital capabilities through a combination of apps, APIs and analytics are seeing revenues rise

London, UK – 27 May, 2015 – More than one in three UK companies surveyed say digital improvement is their top priority; however, most are focusing on simply building mobile apps and not incorporating the API and analytics programs necessary for enabling digital business. This is according to a new study of 252 senior executives and IT decision makers across the UK in four major industries by Apigee® (NASDAQ: APIC).

The Apigee Institute’s 2015 UK Digital Business Survey Snapshot reveals that apps alone may not be enough to harness the full potential of digital business; effective digital transformation comes from implementing a powerful combination of apps, APIs, and analytics. The report finds that companies that are investing in these core digital technologies are eight times more likely to report increased revenue from digital activities than those who delivered apps alone.

This advantage is not simply a matter of number of companies with increased revenue from digital, but also a matter of degree. The respondents who only delivered apps yet saw increased revenue reported a median of about £266,000 in increased revenue.  In contrast, the respondents who invested in apps, APIs, and analytics saw median returns of over £9,000,000.

Ground continues to shift

The Apigee Institute report reveals that 79 per cent of UK businesses in the banking, travel and tourism, telecommunications and retail industries are seeing a fundamental shift in customer expectations due to digital growth. The same proportion recognise that disruption from digital activities has already occurred in their industry. Possibly as a result, more than eight out of ten (86 per cent) respondents report an existing company-wide digital transformation initiative. To deliver on this, 71 per cent of respondents report that their company deployed mobile apps in the twelve months before the survey. 

Bryan Kirschner, director of the Apigee Institute, said: “In what’s rapidly becoming a mobile-first business world, all manner of industries are being ‘shaken up’ by digital innovation. The growing sophistication of digital technology and increasing customer expectations are creating new demands for enterprises. Regardless of industry, every business needs to change the way it interacts with customers and partners – using data and digital technologies to create new digital experiences, new efficiencies, and to grow and expand faster in today’s digital world.”

Putting customer experience first

With the proliferation of mobile devices and apps, many UK businesses are seeing opportunities to connect with customers, wherever they are, through digital information and services.  According to the survey findings, the top drivers for embarking on digital transformation initiatives among UK businesses include providing best customer experience (37%), new services or experiences for customers (37%), identifying new revenue streams for the business (32%) and remaining competitive (29%). About a quarter (24%) of respondents are also turning to digital activities to help cut costs. 

Digital business: more than a mobile app

Seventy-one per cent of respondents deployed a mobile app in the 12 months before the survey, and more than half (55%) plan to offer more services via mobile devices in 2015. But there is still significant work to be done.  Significant majorities of those surveyed consider developing APIs (75%) and the ability to collect and analyse big data (77%) important priorities for 2015. Yet, only 26 per cent of surveyed UK executives report plans to deploy new APIs in 2015, and only 35 per cent plan to incorporate big data analytics into their products, processes and services.

According to Kirschner, “We believe businesses need to move beyond merely rolling out mobile apps and instead look more holistically at how they can understand and add value to their customers using data insights and analytics. Our research shows that only 10 per cent of ‘app-only’ companies have seen an increase in revenue from their digital efforts versus 81 per cent of those who have incorporated data analytics and implemented APIs along with their deployed apps.”

Enterprises that have taken action in the past year on three digital capabilities—apps, APIs, and analytics—may have won themselves an edge in the new digital economy. Compared to those who only reported deploying a mobile app in 2014, respondents who delivered this ‘digital trifecta’ are more than twice as likely (41% to 15%) to have seen an increase in their ability to innovate. And while they have an edge on cost savings to date—63 per cent report savings versus 49 per cent of ‘app only’ companies—they dominate on using digital to drive top-line growth in that they are eight times more likely to report increased revenue from digital activities than those who delivered apps alone.

UK business leaders in this survey report that their top three barriers to digital transformation come in the form of limited budgets (35%), poor IT infrastructure (29%), and restricted executive support (25%). 

“The research tells us that the majority of UK businesses acknowledge that digital transformation is critical for their business, and are also recognise the importance of data analytics and APIs as part of this journey,” adds Kirschner. “Data is the fuel that enterprises use to engage with, understand and bring value to its customers, market and business. Data is delivered by APIs, and customers engage with data through easy to use mobile apps. Together, data, APIs and apps are the core constructs of digital business.”

Methodology and Disclaimer

The survey was conducted from 5th March through 10th March, 2015. The research was conducted online with 252 UK IT decision makers from four major industry sectors: travel and tourism; banking and financial services; retail, and telecommunications.  Each industry is weighted to represent one fourth of the survey.

Please note that the results reported in this release are based on a limited data set.  In addition, there may be factors that are not reflected in the results reported in this release.  Actual results experienced by individual businesses may vary from those reported in this release.
