Apigee Boosts Analytics in Its Leading API Platform

New Analytics Capabilities in Apigee Edge Give Businesses More Advanced Tools to Understand, Manage and Optimize API-Powered Digital Programs

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2014) - Apigee®, developer of a leading platform for digital acceleration, today announced that it has added new analytics capabilities to the Apigee Edge API platform to help businesses better understand, manage and optimize the performance of their API-powered digital programs. Apigee Edge is used by companies of all sizes to securely deliver data and other digital services on mobile apps and other platforms. Recognized for its strength in analytics, Apigee Edge now includes additional tools to give organizations new levels of visibility and diagnostics for optimizing the performance of API programs.

"In today's data-driven economy, organizations must have a deep understanding of the data that is flowing through their APIs," said Anant Jhingran, head of products at Apigee. "We are delivering new tools that extend the strong Analytics Services in Apigee Edge to help companies increase digital agility, adaptability and speed -- all keys to a successful digital business."

Apigee was recently recognized for its comprehensive solutions and analytics by independent research firm Forrester Research in "The Forrester Wave™: API Management Solutions, Q3 2014."

"Apigee's standout feature is its analytics and it is well rounded across other criteria and the only vendor to have full capabilities in three of our added value feature criteria: API hosting, mobile app support and turnkey billing," noted the Forrester report.

The Analytics Services in Apigee Edge provide businesses with visibility across the digital value chain. It delivers a rich array of tools to understand and optimize API programs, including customized reporting that uses custom variables, dimensions and filters; business metrics that track product, service and customer usage; operational metrics that monitor the health and performance of API programs; and app performance metrics that help discover app errors and performance issues.

The new capabilities in Apigee Edge give businesses more advanced analytics to analyze both API performance and how their APIs are being used.

New API Performance Analytics

  • New Latency Analysis Dashboard: This dashboard measures response time so customers can see precisely how much the stress is on the system, both from the API proxy and the backend. This provides visibility that enables organizations to effectively plan for peaks, which are often more meaningful than averages.
  • New drill-down diagnostics: Apigee now includes new diagnostic tools to help customers drill down to provide the next level of detail on potential issues in areas including endpoint, API proxy and cache performance and latency and error analysis.
  • New custom report dispersion charts: Customers can now benefit from more advanced custom charts that include new visualization tools for all metrics and dimensions in their API program.

New Device API Analytics
New Devices Dashboard: Apigee Edge now includes a Devices Dashboard that helps customers understand API engagement. It shows which traffic is coming from which device, as well as what kind of devices are getting the most traffic. This provides an easy way for customers to understand what kinds of devices, operating systems and platform are accessing APIs, to help with platform planning and trouble-shooting. Apigee Edge provides this level of visibility without any additional software installation required on the device.

In addition to the Apigee Edge API platform, Apigee also offers a sophisticated predictive analytics platform called Apigee Insights. With Apigee Insights, developers can build smart, API-driven "adaptive" apps that anticipate, learn, and adapt to deliver contextual, individualized interactions, which may increase marketing effectiveness and customer satisfaction.
