Over the last few years, API management platforms have seen a lot of change and maturation. As market demands continue to evolve, vendors have evolved as well, albeit at their own pace. Gartner published a report assessing various API management vendors and their ability to facilitate API life cycle management. As stated in the Gartner report, today’s full life cycle API management involves:

  • The planning, design, implementation, testing, publication, operation, consumption, maintenance, versioning and retirement of APIs
  • Delivery of a developer portal through which to target, market to and govern communities of developers who embed APIs
  • Runtime management
  • Estimation of APIs’ value
  • The use of analytics to understand patterns of API usage

Using these criteria as well as the ability to execute and completeness of vision, Apigee established itself as a leader in API vendors in the Gartner report. Over the past year, Apigee has added new integration features such as Apigee Extensions to continue to adapt to the ever-changing market needs.

Apigee Edge, the core Apigee API management platform, is available both on-premises and in the cloud as well as for hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Google Cloud also offers Apigee Compass, a self-assessment tool for digital strategy maturity. This ability to support users through their digital transformation journey is a major differentiator among API vendors for Apigee. As listed in the report, users also noted Apigee Edge offers a key benefit of ease of use.
