Google’s acquisition of Apigee – no change for SAP customers
Dear API Management community,
On September 8 Google has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Apigee, a leader in API Management software. In mid-2014, SAP and Apigee entered into a partnership for SAP to include Apigee technology as part of the SAP HANA Cloud Platform, API management service and also resell a solution extension, SAP API Management by Apigee for on premise deployment.
The distribution and technology relationship between SAP and Apigee will continue for the foreseeable future. Change of ownership for Apigee has no impact on SAP’s rights to include Apigee technology as part of the HANA Cloud Platform, API management service and the respective SAP solution extension. SAP remains fully committed to provide the SAP HCP, API management service and SAP API Management by Apigee as a safe choice for customers and partners building up their API strategies going forward. SAP´s roadmap to offer a comprehensive API Management offering to enable digital transformation for our customers remains strong.
In addition, SAP and Google have a long-standing strong technology relationship, and we expect this to continue into the future as well.
All the best,
SAP API Management, Product Management Team
Ralf, Thanks for the update. Good to know that there is no impact.
Thanks Raif for being clear.
Just to get a little more clarity --
As per the roadmap provided in blog
The screens are of cloud version , not on-premise version.
Does that mean In future releases of on-premise- will the screens/User Interface get updated to same as of cloud version for api management and developer portal?
Thanks in advance 😕
I understand your confusion, as the name of the fule is "On-Premise Edition" however you will notice that in the document itself, it makes no mention of OnPremise version specifically, except to say that both OnPrem and Cloud options are available.
We will look into correcting the file name to limit confusion. Apologies for the confusion.
To answer your question, there is no expectation as of now to transform the SAP API Management by Apigee screens to mirror the SAP HCP, API Management ones.
