Accenture Expands Its Digital Capabilities In API Management Through Strategic Relationship With Apigee

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) and Apigee, which develops software to help customers build mobile platforms with apps, data and APIs, have expanded their relationship, forming a global alliance to deliver solutions that help clients more easily build mobile applications and connect enterprise systems.

In addition to the alliance agreement, Accenture has invested in Apigee and will join the company’s Advisory Board. Accenture will also serve as a preferred systems integrator of Apigee and will provide input to Apigee’s product roadmaps. Terms of Accenture’s investment were not disclosed.

APIs are emerging as a strategic IT capability, allowing businesses to simplify mobile application integration and accelerate the creation of digital services. With this new strategic relationship, Accenture will expand its services to capitalize on the rapidly growing market for enterprise API solutions. This will include new capabilities in the Accenture Managed Mobility Services solution and Accenture Cloud Platform.

“As our clients go digital, they are looking for ways to more rapidly deploy mobile applications and integrate cloud platforms across their enterprise systems,” said Jin Lee, senior managing director, Accenture Mobility. “API-based infrastructure has emerged as an innovative and very promising solution to these challenges, and we’re pleased to expand our relationship with Apigee, who is a leader in this area.”

“An alliance relationship with a company like Accenture is an important milestone for Apigee and will help us more rapidly expand our global reach as more enterprises transform for the mobile computing revolution,” said Chet Kapoor, CEO, Apigee. “For Accenture, this alliance means they will have greater access to solutions that can help drive their digital strategies, allowing them to focus more on product innovation, business development and speed to market.”

“Leveraging the capabilities of Apigee and other companies in the ecosystem enables Accenture to deliver innovative solutions for clients looking to seize opportunities as they develop into digital businesses,” added Lee.
