Solutions Partner of the Year: Pivotal
Apigee and Pivotal developed multiple product-based solutions between Apigee Edge and Pivotal Cloud Foundry, a cloud-native platform engineered to run an entire enterprise. Together, Apigee and Pivotal teamed up to bring the best modern developer platform and tools to enable enterprises to build software designed to drive richer engagement with their customers. Our partnership with Pivotal helped us win the highest number of sales among Apigee ISV partners.
"Growing competition from nimble startups and disruptive technologies is driving the adoption of digital transformation in enterprises. To adapt, some of the biggest brands in the world increasingly run their businesses on Pivotal Cloud Foundry, thereby enabling rapid development of new cloud-native products and services. The collaboration with Apigee enables apps running on our platform to leverage best-in-class API design and gateway services to gain control and visibility into how customers improve their interfaces. This in turn is a key factor helping enterprises move at startup speeds. Through our partner ecosystem we are committed to working with the world’s largest enterprises to drive meaningful business outcomes.”
