Apigee Powers Qrious – a New Telecom Digital Ventures NZ Business
Apigee to Speed Data Delivery and Monetization for the Qrious Data, Analytics & Application Platform
April, 15, 2014 – Apigee today announced that Telecom Digital Ventures New Zealand has chosen the Apigee API platform to power Qrious, a new business that provides a better way for organizations to create value from data, analytics and applications. Founded by Digital Ventures, a division of Telecom New Zealand – the country’s largest telecommunications company – Qrious is using Apigee to help develop and grow new digital services and drive additional revenue streams for their customers.
Qrious offers a big data and analytics platform designed to deliver a better way for organizations and New Zealand as a whole to tap into data insights. Using Apigee, Qrious will create an Insight Exchange where providers (government and enterprises) can share insights, combine them with other available data in the ecosystem, and then create even more meaningful business insights – from solutions for public transportation to housing to healthcare.
“We needed to solve the data transport problem around analytics and data monetization,” said Cyrus Facciano, general manager of Qrious. “Apigee will allow us to manage and monitor the usage of our platform components for our own operational needs, while also satisfying our need to deliver on the data monetization vision – and all with a single solution.”
Apigee is enabling Qrious to rapidly deliver digital services for data, speeding productization of these services and making them easy to consume. Qrious will also create flexible and adaptable monetization models using Apigee Developer Services, which includes an integrated monetization tool for driving developer success. Self-service onboarding, data security and deep analytics of API usage delivered through Apigee will also be part of the Qrious platform.
“By centralizing data and enabling it to move quickly, while rapidly productizing customers’ digital assets, Qrious and its ecosystem will be able to truly innovate – whether by deploying new applications, collaborating on projects or selling insights,” said Ed Anuff, Apigee vice president of product strategy. “Qrious is a true data-driven digital business and we are looking forward to working with the company to help fuel their innovation.”
