We’re excited to share that Gartner has recognized Google Cloud (Apigee)—for the fourth time in a row—as a Leader in the Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management. In this year’s report, Google (Apigee) is positioned highest on Gartner’s “ability to execute” axis.

APIs are how businesses build and connect modern applications in hybrid and multi-cloud environments, and API management is the way those businesses can securely deliver these connected experiences to customers, partners, and employees. Google Cloud’s Apigee team is committed to building a sophisticated API platform that serves as a foundation for digital business, as well as providing the expertise and guidance to help promote our customers’ success, with offerings such as our Day Zero program, API Program Excellence e-learning series, Compass online assessment tool. So it’s gratifying that we are recognized for our efforts as a strategic partner for digital transformation and not just a provider of technology solutions. "The wealth of experience that Apigee brings from working with hundreds of customers, across industries, has been extremely helpful to PricewaterhouseCoopers,” says Trent Lund, lead partner, innovation & ventures, PricewaterhouseCoopers. “We really value the insight and sharing we get from Google Cloud’s Apigee team and the collaboration between our engineers. It goes far beyond software."
