API exchange platform standardises apps across industries

Initial focus on telecommunications

Article comments

Apigee, the API company, has launched its Apigee API Exchange to help standardise apps and APIs within different industries.

To start with the Apigee API Exchange is available for the telecommunications industry, and promises to deliver an expanded app reach for operators and developers to support new mobile offerings to consumers.

In the telecommunications industry app developers often work with many different operators' APIs to deliver apps that can be accessed by consumers worldwide.  

This fragmentation has slowed innovation and limited the number of apps leveraging rich APIs in telecommunications as well as many other industries, said Apigee.

Chet Kapoor, Apigee CEO, said: "Being able to share services and data through interoperable APIs is crucial to establishing modern, digital eco-systems in any industry.

"This is especially true in industries where competition or regulation has created fragmentation, such as in telecommunications, healthcare and travel."

The API Exchange is designed to deliver API federation and simplify the development of apps across any industry where fragmentation is an issue.

"We’re actively collaborating with Apigee to develop APIs that empower developers to easily integrate AT&T network services and intelligence into their apps more quickly than ever before,” said Abhi Ingle, vice president of eco-systems and innovation at AT&T.  

"The Apigee API Exchange now delivers important API interoperability that we believe will extend network innovation and reach for operators worldwide," said Ingle.  

Apigee is developing app exchanges for other specific industries too.
