Apigee and Pivotal Collaborate to Deliver One-Click API Management for Applications on Cloud Foundry

Industry-first API Management Integration with Pivotal Cloud Foundry

San Jose, California, UNITED STATES

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apigee® (NASDAQ:APIC), developer of an intelligent API platform for digital business, today announced that it is collaborating with Pivotal®, a company accelerating digital transformation and modern application development for enterprises, to create an integration of the Apigee Edge API management platform with Pivotal's Cloud Foundry®. This will represent the first-ever API management integration with Pivotal’s cloud native platform, enabling Pivotal Cloud Foundry users to seamlessly expose APIs (application programming interfaces) with API management without the need for additional configuration. Slated for general availability by the first half of next year, a beta version of the new one-click integration will be demonstrated at the 2015 "I Love APIs” conference this week.

“We’ve seen among our customer base that the Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform-as-a-service is becoming an increasingly popular way to develop cloud native applications,” said Ed Anuff, Apigee vice president of strategy. “Those applications expose APIs, and the APIs need to be managed. This integration is exciting because it will make publishing native applications on Pivotal Cloud Foundry with APIs that are secure, managed and scalable extremely easy.”

Today’s Web developers are increasingly using technology like Pivotal Cloud Foundry to build and publish Web applications that leverage API management technology like Apigee Edge. Traditionally a time-consuming, two-step configuration process with room for error, this new integration will help eliminate the inefficiencies of publishing web applications and APIs separately, turning the process into a simple, push-button operation instead. The Pivotal Cloud Foundry-Apigee collaboration is the first technology integration to take advantage of Pivotal Cloud Foundry's PaaS "router service."

When the Apigee Edge API management integration becomes generally available, Pivotal Cloud Foundry users will be able to select Apigee in the Pivotal Web Services Marketplace and have its full suite of API management services automatically integrated into their web applications. Apigee customers running Apigee on-premises will be able to activate the integration and enable the same benefits through a similar mechanism.

“APIs play an increasingly central role in the design and operation of next generation Cloud Native applications,” said James Watters, vice president and general manager of Pivotal’s Cloud Platform Group. “By integrating API management into the Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform with Apigee Edge, we can deliver a richer solution for new and refactored enterprise applications and microservices - this in turn allows the world’s leading companies to rapidly go from idea to production.”
