Intelligent API Platform Vendor Positioned Furthest for its Completeness of Vision

 Apigee® (NASDAQ: APIC), developer of an intelligent API platform for digital business, announced today that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance[1]. Apigee was positioned the furthest of all vendors in this report for “Completeness of Vision,” a criteria that reflects vendors' abilities to understand market trends, lead and influence them, and to follow these trends with agility and consistency.

The Gartner Magic Quadrant is considered one of the industry’s most thorough evaluations of solutions for the planning, design, implementation, publication, operation, consumption, maintenance and retirement of APIs and services. This Magic Quadrant evaluated 15 different software vendors on 14 criteria. Apigee was placed in the Leaders quadrant based on both its “ability to execute” and its “completeness of vision.”

According to the report, “The most distinctive attribute Leaders in this market have is that they kept the pace of changing technologies and the changing nature of projects. The rise of the API economy has put API management in everybody's thoughts, and API management took central stage in this quadrant. APIs must come from somewhere, and leaders extended their offerings to API design and implementation. API programs frequently start small with innovative ideas, and they need to execute fast. The Leaders made sure their offerings could cope with this dynamic environment.”

Apigee delivers an intelligent API platform that enables companies to provide connected digital experiences. A single, secure platform for APIs and analytics, Apigee’s platform helps businesses accelerate the pace at which they innovate, share their data and services, and adapt to rapidly changing customer and market needs.

Apigee recently announced a new “API-first” Internet of Things (IoT) product called Apigee Link, as well as a new solution for the healthcare industry based on the Apigee Edge API management product.

New solution based on Apigee Edge brings the vision of FHIR API-based Argonaut Project closer to life; will help advance the digital transformation of care delivery

HIMSS15, CHICAGO – April 13, 2015 – Apigee®, developer of an intelligent API platform for digital business, today announced a new solution to make it faster and more efficient to share healthcare information. The new solution, based on the Apigee Edge API management platform and the API-based FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) standard, provides FHIR-ready REST APIs to help enable healthcare payors and providers to securely share data with mobile apps and meet the proposed Meaningful Use Stage 3 certification guidelines. The solution is designed to bring the vision of FHIR API-based Argonaut Project closer to life and enable healthcare companies to move faster to the digital world.

Apigee will be at HIMSS15 this week, located inside the Connected Patient Gallery, demonstrating and discussing this new healthcare solution.

“APIs are the underlying connectors of our digital world and are key to accelerating innovation in healthcare,” said Chet Kapoor, CEO of Apigee. “With this new healthcare solution, we are leveraging our core competency in APIs to enhance the interoperability of patient data and unleash the creativity of mobile health apps.  We look forward to working with healthcare companies to realize project Argonaut’s vision of patient data interoperability.”

Argonaut Project is an open, industry-led “code sprint” to support FHIR-based APIs for patient data interoperability, with support from leading healthcare companies. The project is reimagining how APIs and open Internet standards can enable open health data and accelerate innovation in care delivery.

“I applaud Apigee's commitment to join the growing Argonaut Project implementation community by providing FHIR-ready REST APIs,” noted Aneesh Chopra, the former (and first) U.S. chief technology officer in the Obama Administration. “The new Apigee healthcare solution helps simplify the steps payors and providers need to take to securely connect patient data to the emerging health apps ecosystem and to value-based payment services”.

Healthcare companies can experience a number of challenges in fueling innovation via patient-centric mobile apps: working with legacy systems, enabling granular access to information, ensuring security and privacy, providing authentication and authorization, and supporting rapid innovation cycles, among others. Healthcare stakeholders may not have a clear path to solving these challenges, which can slow or prevent them from sharing patient data.

“API-first” healthcare solution for patient data interoperability

Apigee’s new healthcare solution helps make it easier for healthcare stakeholders including payors, providers, labs, and pharmacies to securely share patient data with mobile health apps and with each other using the FHIR-ready APIs. Apigee’s approach improves the current CCDA (Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture) document based data exchange by providing granular level data access through APIs and enables a mobile app ecosystem supporting multiple compliant EHRs (Electronic Health Records) and patient data sources.

Key components of the solution to include:

●      FHIR-ready APIs, managed with a HIPAA-compliant, specially adapted version of Apigee Edge. Apigee Edge also provides key security capabilities such as API-centric authentication and authorization, Internet security protocols including OpenID Connect, OAuth, and SAML, and key privacy capabilities such as role-based access control and consent management.

●      Access to open source connectors to health systems to enable data availability from existing systems.

●      Services, to help build new connectors to existing standards like HL7, CCDA and others.

“The Advisory Board Company strongly supports FHIR and Project Argonaut,” said David Kates, Managing Director, Interoperability, The Advisory Board Company. “We look forward to working with Apigee to demonstrate how our Crimson Care Management app uses Apigee technology to integrate with EHRs and utilize FHIR to streamline information sharing.”

“We’re delighted that Apigee is adopting our CCDA converter as part of their healthcare solution,“ said Peter L. Levin, CEO of Amida Technology Solutions. “Amida has built open source health IT components for many healthcare companies. We look forward to partnering with Apigee to make it easier for healthcare payors and providers to share patient data via FHIR APIs”.

"The Apigee APIs will make it easier for our current and future partners – such as payer/provider analytics solutions or consumer-facing mobile applications – to consume Carebox data," said Brian Weiss, CEO of Carebox Healthcare Solutions. "The patient-centric data interoperability capabilities that Apigee and Carebox are delivering today demonstrate the transformative potential of consumer-centric APIs and FHIR."

“By focusing on APIs and open and curated data, healthcare payors, providers, labs, and pharmacies can transform their business in a agile and incremental manner,” said Dr. Anand Deshpande, CEO of Persistent Systems. “We are excited to work with Apigee to bring the promise of project Argonaut to life.”

Apigee’s new healthcare solution is currently available on premises and through an Early Adopter Program in the cloud. The Early Adopter Program includes a developer sandbox, where participants can experience the system using demo data, prior to using their own.

March 31, 2015 – Apigee®, developer of an intelligent API platform for digital business, today launched Apigee Link™, an API-first Internet of Things (IoT) product for connecting devices to the Internet. Apigee Link provides built-in REST APIs and end-to-end connectivity for devices to enable device makers to offer new digital experiences for their customers, create new revenue streams with their partners, and grow their business. Apigee Link enables any device maker to become a digital platform business and to take advantage of the IoT.

“APIs are a critical enabler for the Internet of Things,” said Chet Kapoor, CEO of Apigee. “With Apigee Link, we are leveraging our core competency in APIs, data, and protocol mediation to deliver a new Apigee product that securely links devices with the Internet and helps device makers build powerful IoT ecosystems. Apigee is already working with device makers and solution partners, and we look forward to working with many more to help them become platform businesses.”

Today, global device makers and enterprises are reimagining how entire systems can be improved with smart devices, big data and digital platforms. For example, CentraLite, a manufacturer of control and energy-management devices, is working with Apigee to offer their enterprise customers and partners new opportunities for connected devices.

“CentraLite has long been providing reliable products for a connected world, and we’re thrilled to collaborate with Apigee to enable new applications in the space,” said John Calagaz, Chief Technology Officer at CentraLite. “With Apigee, we’re able to provide our existing and new enterprise customers with a robust framework for highly customizable IoT solutions.”

Device makers can experience a number of challenges in building a digital platform business: reliably and securely connecting devices to the Internet with minimal latency; enabling partners and customers to orchestrate digital experiences that involve multiple devices; working with app developers; and collecting, analyzing, and acting on data from sensors and actuators. Device makers often do not have a clear path to solving these challenges, which can slow and increase the risks of moving toward the digital world of the Internet of Things.

“API-first” approach to the Internet of Things

Apigee Link makes it easy for device makers to securely link devices to the cloud and to enable their customers and partners to build digital experiences involving many devices.

Key capabilities available to users include:

●      REST APIs: Access any device using the built-in REST APIs

●      WebSockets: Stream near-real-time data among physical devices, the cloud and mobile apps using open standards.

●      Two-Way Communication: Send data from the cloud to the device or from the device to the cloud, including requests through traditional home routers in either direction.

●      Protocol Mediation: Communicate with any device by mediating between web, wired, and wireless protocols, including, ZigBee, WiFi, BLE, MQTT, and more.

●      Sensor and Actuator Data: Monitor device behavior by streaming and ingesting data in the cloud for storage and analysis.

●      Identity and Security: Secure device interactions by authenticating and authorizing users, apps and devices.

●      Rules and Applications: Influence device and user behavior in real time with data-driven rules and Node.js.

●      Device Hub Ecosystems: Create device ecosystems around geographically distributed hubs in homes or businesses.

●      Mobile and Platform SDKs: Enable app developers to rapidly develop digital IoT experiences on iOS, with plans to support Android and other leading platforms in the future.

“As organizations start to establish how to take advantage of the potential that the IoT has to offer, APIs will play a central role. We’ve worked with a number of clients using Apigee’s API management platform, and their entry into the IoT ecosystem is a welcome one,” said Paul Daugherty, Chief Technology Officer, Accenture.

“The number of connected intelligent devices will continue to grow exponentially, giving ‘smart things’ the ability to sense, interpret, communicate and negotiate, and effectively have a digital ‘voice’," said Steve Prentice, Vice President and Gartner Fellow. "CIOs must look for opportunities to create new services, usage scenarios and business models based on this growth.”[1]

Apigee Link leverages Zetta, an open source IoT platform project. In order to keep pace with the growing diversity of new and legacy device standards, Apigee Link builds on the open source protocol mediation capabilities available in Zetta so that myriad devices can effectively communicate and negotiate with one another. Apigee Link also extends Zetta by adding enterprise support and cloud services.

In addition to Apigee Link, Apigee also offers Apigee Edge, which delivers comprehensive API management, and Apigee Insights, which delivers predictive analytics on big data. Apigee Link leverages Apigee Edge and Apigee Insights. With Apigee Edge, Apigee Insights, and Apigee Link, device makers can use APIs, predictive analytics, and IoT to accelerate their move to the digital world.

Apigee Link is available today as a cloud and device software offering for select customers and will be widely available later this year.

Apigee survey reveals that one in five of the most frequent U.S. and U.K. smartphone users say they can’t maintain a relationship without their apps

Feb. 19, 2015 – Apigee®, developer of the intelligent API platform, today announced new research showing that rising numbers of smartphone owners are becoming more dependent on their devices, with some saying they could not maintain a relationship with a significant other or find new friends without their smartphone.

The Apigee Institute’s 2014 Digital Impact Survey, deployed in collaboration with Stanford University's Mobile Innovation Group (MIG), illustrates that people’s addiction – or “appdiction” – to their mobile phones is on the rise. One thousand U.S. and U.K. smartphone owners were surveyed.

The findings are especially notable for the quarter of smartphone owners who use their devices the most, or the “top app users:”

·       Twenty-one percent of these top app users said they could not maintain a relationship with a significant other without the apps on their mobile device. Nineteen percent said they wouldn’t be able to find new friends. Seventeen percent said they couldn’t do their jobs.

·       A majority of the top app users admit to using their phones nearly all the time, including while at dinner with others. Fifty-five percent check at least one app hourly or more frequently.

·       Reflecting apps’ penetration into all parts of their lives, 77 percent have downloaded a banking app in the past year, 72 percent a retail app, and 60 percent a diet or fitness app.

·       Eighty-one percent agreed that overall, their mobile phone made them more productive. Eighty-eight percent rate app shopping favorably.

·       Nearly 9 in 10 reported they don’t plan to reduce the number of apps they download in the next year, with 45 percent saying they plan to increase the number. Similarly, 97 percent reported no intent to decrease the amount of money they spend via apps, with 38 percent planning to spend more.

While these top app users – defined as the top 25 percent of smartphone owners based on frequency of use across 12 categories of app – indicate a sharp tip to the mobile use spear, the indications of broad disruption are evident for all smartphone owners represented in this survey.

The 2014 Digital Impact Survey reveals that 88 percent of all smartphone owners plan to spend at least as much time in front of their mobile screens in 2015 as they did last year, and 30 percent of them expect to increase their usage. Thirty-two percent plan to increase the number of apps they download.

Eleven percent of smartphone owners reported they are unable to be happy without their electronic companions, and more than one in 10 said they are incapable of maintaining a relationship with their significant other without their phone.

Smartphones Have Changed Everything

The survey showed that getting a mobile device has significantly changed many facets of people’s lives.

·       92 percent reported that having a smartphone has altered how they connect with friends;

·       58 percent said it has changed how they manage their health;

·       49 percent said it has changed how they date;

·       84 percent of shoppers said it has changed how they shop;

·       78 percent of people who use banks said it has changed how they bank;

·       70 percent of TV viewers said it has changed how they watch TV and movies;

·       65 percent of employees said it has changed how they do their job.

Apigee’s API platform helps leading supermarket launch its loyalty programme

February 3, 2015: Apigee®, developer of an intelligent API platform for digital business acceleration, has been selected by U.K. supermarket chain Morrisons to provide the API infrastructure for Morrisons’ new digital platform, including its new loyalty site and mobile app – Match & More.  

Match & More is the first programme of its kind to provide a price match guarantee against Aldi, Lidl, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Asda. If a comparable grocery shop is cheaper at any of these supermarkets, Match & More users will automatically get the difference back in points on their card. Apigee’s integrated API platform, which enables the secure exposure and delivery of data to mobile apps, has helped Morrisons accelerate the technology integration required to rapidly bring this loyalty programme to market.

As part of the launch, Morrisons is rolling out a wide range of services requiring the exposure of customer data and services – via APIs - from a number of its partners. This includes personal data, loyalty card information, digital/ physical vouchers, promotions and personalisation of mobile offers. Apigee serves as the “digital glue” that enables Morrisons to aggregate and integrate the data and APIs from a number of disparate systems for a seamless customer experience.

The Match & More mobile app provides users with a live stream of personalised offers based on their interests, offers available in their local store, personal shopping lists and a live account balance. The Match & More card has now been rolled out across the country in all Morrisons stores.

Tom Foster, Head of Platform Strategy and Architecture at Wm Morrison Supermarkets Plc., said: “Apigee’s sophisticated API platform is helping our IT and Marketing departments work in a very collaborative manner. We are able to expose systems which allow us to create new experiences based on data that previously wasn't accessible.”

“Apigee has helped us to streamline digital and technology processes within Morrisons to allow the creative teams to concentrate on the experience rather than create disparate front end systems for each activity. This creates exciting new opportunities as well as driving efficiencies, enabling us to swiftly enter the digital age in a well-managed way.”

Chet Kapoor, CEO of Apigee, said: “The U.K. grocery sector is a very competitive retail environment, so supermarkets must embrace digital to provide customers with better experiences. Morrisons is demonstrating how an aggressive, data-centric approach can deliver new value to customers and set them apart from the competition. By opening up its APIs and driving innovation through its partners, Morrisons has developed an exciting digital proposition and is well placed to drive growth in its business.”

Equinix delivers the Apigee Edge API platform as part of its Exchange to provide Equinix customers with high-performance cloud provisioning through APIs.

New analytics capabilities in Apigee Edge give businesses more advanced tools to understand, manage and optimize API-powered digital programs

SAN JOSE, Calif. December 16, 2014 – Apigee®, developer of a leading platform for digital acceleration, today announced that it has added new analytics capabilities to the Apigee Edge API platform to help businesses better understand, manage and optimize the performance of their API-powered digital programs. Apigee Edge is used by companies of all sizes to securely deliver data and other digital services on mobile apps and other platforms. Recognized for its strength in analytics, Apigee Edge now includes additional tools to give organizations new levels of visibility and diagnostics for optimizing the performance of API programs.

“In today’s data-driven economy, organizations must have a deep understanding of the data that is flowing through their APIs,” said Anant Jhingran, head of products at Apigee. “We are delivering new tools that extend the strong Analytics Services in Apigee Edge to help companies increase digital agility, adaptability and speed – all keys to a successful digital business.”

Apigee was recently recognized for its comprehensive solutions and analytics by independent research firm Forrester Research in “The Forrester Wave™: API Management Solutions, Q3 2014.”

“Apigee’s standout feature is its analytics and it is well rounded across other criteria and the only vendor to have full capabilities in three of our added value feature criteria: API hosting, mobile app support and turnkey billing,” noted the Forrester report. 

The Analytics Services in Apigee Edge provide businesses with visibility across the digital value chain. It delivers a rich array of tools to understand and optimize API programs, including customized reporting that uses custom variables, dimensions and filters; business metrics that track product, service and customer usage; operational metrics that monitor the health and performance of API programs; and app performance metrics that help discover app errors and performance issues. 

The new capabilities in Apigee Edge give businesses more advanced analytics to analyze both API performance and how their APIs are being used.

New API Performance Analytics

·      New Latency Analysis Dashboard: This dashboard measures response time so customers can see precisely how much the stress is on the system, both from the API proxy and the backend. This provides visibility that enables organizations to effectively plan for peaks, which are often more meaningful than averages.

·      New drill-down diagnostics: Apigee now includes new diagnostic tools to help customers drill down to provide the next level of detail on potential issues in areas including endpoint, API proxy and cache performance and latency and error analysis.

·      New custom report dispersion charts: Customers can now benefit from more advanced custom charts that include new visualization tools for all metrics and dimensions in their API program.

New Device API Analytics

New Devices Dashboard: Apigee Edge now includes a Devices Dashboard that helps customers understand API engagement. It shows which traffic is coming from which device, as well as what kind of devices are getting the most traffic. This provides an easy way for customers to understand what kinds of devices, operating systems and platform are accessing APIs, to help with platform planning and trouble-shooting. Apigee Edge provides this level of visibility without any additional software installation required on the device.

In addition to the Apigee Edge API platform, Apigee also offers a sophisticated predictive analytics platform called Apigee Insights. With Apigee Insights, developers can build smart, API-driven “adaptive” apps that anticipate, learn, and adapt to deliver contextual, individualized interactions, which may increase marketing effectiveness and customer satisfaction.
