Fujitsu Selects Apigee to Support Its Cloud-Based Application Platform

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Apigee® (Nasdaq:APIC), developer of an intelligent API platform, today announced that Fujitsu, one of the world's largest IT services providers, has chosen Apigee Edge to support its internal IT transformation.

Fujitsu is an information and communications technology company that offers a wide range of technology products, solutions and services worldwide. Approximately 162,000 Fujitsu employees support customers in more than 100 countries.

Apigee is delivering the API platform to support Fujitsu's initiative in which it is moving its internal IT infrastructure of 640 systems and 13,000 servers into the cloud within the next five years. This IT transformation is designed to increase efficiency and lower costs, and to allow Fujitsu to take advantage of new opportunities in big data and the Internet of Things (IoT). Fujitsu plans to apply the lessons it is learning from its own transformation to the products and services it offers customers.

"The world is rapidly moving to a state in which everything is digitalized and is connected to everything else via the cloud," said Tango Matsumoto, chief technology and information officer at Fujitsu. "Our company is transforming itself to align with this historic change, and Apigee is an important part of that transformation. Not only are they providing a platform for agile development of new applications, but Apigee also has the capabilities to support Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices and systems, as well as predictive analytics. Fujitsu relies on Apigee's strength in exposing data and backend system capabilities with modern APIs in a secure manner to developers. This will help enterprises to operate both Systems of Record (SoR) and Systems of Engagement (SoE) under rapidly changing business environments. "

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

Chet Kapoor, CEO of Apigee, said, "Fujitsu is one of the world's largest IT services providers. We're proud that such a company is putting its faith in Apigee to help shepherd its digital transformation, and we look forward to further collaboration and potential future opportunities with the company."
