The intelligent API platform for digital business acceleration
Apigee is a proven, scalable and recognized platform built for growth. Whether you are starting on a small project, aiming for a larger program or already have a big digital platform, Apigee’s provides a strong foundation for your digital future as well as licensing model that favors gentle beginnings.
A strong platform to become truly digital
A digital transformation process often leads to the conclusion that a business cannot live up to its potential by relying on traditional channels. Products and services must be easily available, flexible and allow for new offer combinations for B2B and third parties. In a sense, easy access itself is a differentiator, that is often not easily achieved through a legacy stack. With Apigee you can expose, monetize and manage your APIs to the outside world, to offer your customers and partners a connected digital experience.
Apigee’s Backend-as-a-service approach provides an intelligent API platform in the cloud or on premise, that allows your business to secure, manage, analyze, revision and connect all your APIs.
Apigee makes it possible to unlock the value of your data and services by securely exposing backend systems at scale and manage the entire API life cycle. Apigee provides a strong platform to become a truly digital business and make it possible for developers to enable your offerings to their full potential through APIs.

Benefits of Apigee
A specialized and battle proven platform for managing APIs
The first step when deciding to introducing a system such as Apigee lies in recognizing the functionality gap that Apigee cares for. If a business already has exposed API’s, it is common that this is fragmented across the system landscape, often with direct access to the source system, as well as a cloudy ownership of the services internally in the business. To better the management of this, there are two ways: Build it yourself or use a specialized platform. In here lies Apigee’s primary value-add as a specialized, robust and battle proven platform exactly for managing APIs.
