Why Apigee?

You need apps and apps need APIs.Apigee is the leading API plat form for enterprises and developers

Apigee, the application programming interface (API) management company with clients including Netflix, Getty Images and Walgreens, today announced that it would be making use of its platform available for free to anyone requiring up to 3.5 million calls per month. It’s also adding a number of new services, all of which will be included for free users, and most of which are aimed at making Apigee easier to manage so that customers can come on the platform and create customized API-based products for any of their partners (both internal and external).

The decision to go freemium is all about helping further what the company sees as the API revolution, according to Apigee CTO Greg Brail. Apigee sees APIs as the key to the future of data management and data portability, and in order to encourage both small businesses who otherwise wouldn’t have the resources, or internal departments shy about spending on something new to come on board, providing a free level of service was essential, according to Brail.

“We want there to be a lot more APIs in the world, we want there to be a lot more people using APIs and creating APIs,” Brail explained about the motivation behind offering free services. “We want people to be able to start with us when they’re just starting their API program, and another thing we’ve learned is that a lot of people who try and use these free services for a small projects […] may be someone trying a small project on their own, and then on Monday morning they go into work and now they’ve learned a new technology to use on their big project.”
