APIs Enable Digital Business
APIs are technology enablers for digital transformation in any industry. Many companies today are embracing digital business technologies such as APIs to help securely share their enterprise data and deliver new value for customers across mobile apps and other digital channels. APIs provide the underlying digital "glue" that securely connects mobile applications to each other and to the underlying data.

The Apigee Edge API platform helps enterprises accelerate digital business. Built from the ground up for today's app economy, Apigee helps companies securely share data and services, rapidly innovate, and continuously adapt to deliver more value to customers and partners.
