Microsoft snaps an API management startup Apiphany, for its Windows Azure

microsoft-apiphany.Microsoft on Wednesday has acquired a Washington based API management and delivery solutions providing startup Apiphany. Terms of the deal have been kept undisclosed at this stage, however Microsoft announced that the idea behind the acquisition was to integrate Apiphany’s capabilities with its Windows Azure.

“We have acquired Apiphany – a leading API management delivery platform…We look forward to surfacing API management services within Windows Azure and providing our customers with the technology they need to grow their API ecosystem very soon,” said Steven Martin, General Manager, Windows Azure Business and Marketing.

Apiphany is an API management company that helps developers to manage their APIs on its cloud based architecture and securely expose their APIs to those developers who are looking to use them.

Moreover, its architecture was designed in a way that allowed its users to launch and manage cacheable or non-cacheable APIs. They could even leverage Apiphany infrastructure to deliver their APIs globally, or use their own data centers and infrastructure. The startup has offered services to several world class customers such as the Washington Post.

The industry has recently seen few other API management startup acquisitions earlier this year, Intel bought Mashery, Appcelerator acquired Singly, Facebook acquired mobile platform Parse, and more.
