Apigee Plays Key Role in X.commerce's Developer Platform

Apigee Utilized in X.commerce Ecosystem, Accelerates Developer Adoption and Delivers Comprehensive API Management

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 24, 2012) - Apigee, the API company, today announced that it is playing a key role in providing the API (application programming interface) infrastructure for X.commerce, an eBay Inc. company. X.commerce leverages Apigee's powerful API platform to help realize a strategy to unify APIs across the X.commerce ecosystem, including making them easy for developers to find, explore and adopt.

"We are pleased to be working with the X.commerce team to build the platform's API infrastructure," said Chet Kapoor, Apigee CEO. "Together, our goal is to provide developers and merchants easy access to the functionality of the platform."

X.commerce is eBay's open, end-to-end commerce technology platform designed to help merchants reach consumers where they shop today -- including online and on millions of mobile devices. Combining the capabilities and communities of Magento, PayPal and eBay Inc., developers now have access to the most comprehensive suites of tools and capabilities they need to innovate and create commerce solutions.

Apigee's API platform and tools provide components of the infrastructure for X.commerce to deliver, measure and manage its ecosystem of APIs. X.commerce is leveraging Apigee to:

  • Unify the ecosystem of X.commerce APIs in one easy-to-use console. With the interactive Apigee Console, developers can explore, learn, and test and the X.commerce APIs faster and more easily, finding and solving problems quickly, and share their results with others.
  • Simplify API adoption and use with a single sign-on that includes registration, authorization, and security.

"One of X.commerce's primary goals is to give developers the tools they need to easily and effficiently build innovative commerce applications. Apigee is grounded in the understanding that APIs fuel this innovation -- and they have been an important partner of X.commerce from early in our development," said Jeromy Carriere, Chief Architect of X.commerce.
