Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned Red Hat in the "Leaders" quadrant of Gartner's October 2016 Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management for Red Hat 3scale API Management Platform.
As building blocks of the digital economy, APIs continue to play an increasingly strategic role for organizations pursuing digital transformation initiatives. We’re pleased to be enabling that API future for our customers by delivering visibility and control they can use.
Gartner's Magic Quadrants are based on rigorous analysis of a vendor's completeness of vision and ability to execute. According to Gartner, "Full life cycle API management is the functionality organizations need in order to provide the technology platform for digital business, run successful API programs and thrive in the API economy."
Red Hat 3scale API Management Platform is a distributed, cloud-based platform designed to provide end-to-end management capabilities for an organization's APIs. Based on API management technology developed by 3scale, acquired by Red Hat in June 2016, the Red Hat 3scale API Management Platform complements Red Hat's existing application development technologies, including its Red Hat JBoss Middleware portfolio, OpenShift Container Platform, and Red Hat Mobile offerings, and strengthens its ability to help simplify and accelerate customers' digital transformation initiatives.
