APIs are the de-facto standard for building and connecting modern applications. But securely delivering, managing and analyzing APIs, data and services, both inside and outside an organization, is complex. And it’s getting even more challenging as enterprise IT environments grow dependent on combinations of public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures.
Choosing the right APIs can be critical to a platform’s success. Likewise, full lifecycle API management can be a key ingredient in running a successful API-based program. Tools like Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management help enterprises evaluate these platforms so they can find the right one to fit their strategy and planning.
Today, we’re thrilled to share that Gartner has recognized Apigee as a Leader in the 2018 Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management. This year, Apigee was not only positioned furthest on Gartner’s “completeness of vision” axis for the third time running, it was also positioned highest in “ability to execute.”
Ticketmaster, a leader in ticket sales and distribution, has used Apigee since 2013. The company uses the Apigee platform to enforce consistent security across its APIs, and to help reach new audiences by making it easier for partners and developers to build upon and integrate with Ticketmaster services.
"Apigee has played a key role in helping Ticketmaster build its API program and bring ‘moments of joy’ to fans everywhere, on any platform," said Ismail Elshareef, Ticketmaster's senior vice president of fan experience and open platform.
We’re excited that APIs and API management have become essential to how enterprises deliver applications in and across clouds, and we’re honored that Apigee continues to be recognized as a leader in its category. Most importantly, we look forward to continuing to help customers innovate and accelerate their businesses as part of Google Cloud.
