Edge: Enterprise Grade

An architecture to support your future

The demands placed on business with the need for change only increase in the digital economy. Think about the substantial change driven by the addition of millions of intelligent devices to the edge of businesses—devices that enable enhanced customer experience and connectivity.

Achieving digital acceleration that delivers business benefits quickly requires a foundation that enables change without getting in the way—a foundation that provides the rock-solid reliability that you expect from enterprise-grade solutions.

Edge: An enterprise-grade solution

Edge is designed with an architecture built for today and for the evolving world of tomorrow. Edge is a foundation that is open, reliable, and manageable and provides:

  • cloud and on-premises deployments and the ability to transition between them.
  • flexibility that helps the enterprise reduce time-to-market by starting on cloud, then migrating to on-premises in their datacenter if and when that's appropriate.
  • parallel development paths that accelerate your digital efforts.

 

Putting you in control

As technology evolves it often transitions from greater-than-norm dependence on a vendor to greater self reliance. When time is of the essence, why have to wait for configuration changes to your environment? When your governance requirements are complex, you need fine-grained control over a large number of assets and the roles that work with them.

Hundreds of Apigee customers already experience the flexibility and self-reliance that comes with Edge:

  • A complete tool-set including configurable policies to support self-service.
