SOA Software Closes Another Profitable Year

SOA Software, a leading provider of API Management and SOA Governance solutions, today announced that it closed 2013 as a profitable year with double digit revenue growth over the previous year. With the increased pace of convergence of API Management and SOA Governance and new strategic partnerships, the company has benefited from a continued investment in robust enterprise-ready software.

“We saw growth in customer adoption of APIs and a convergence of API Management and SOA Governance, both areas where SOA Software has been traditionally strong and continues to be a thought leader,” said Paul Gigg, President and CEO of SOA Software. “We are uniquely well-positioned to grow our market leadership in API Management and will continue to bring innovative solutions to market.”

SOA Software’s ability to close a successful year reflects an increasing demand by enterprises to use APIs to deliver rich, integrated digital experiences through mobile devices, the cloud and other channels.

SOA Software also consolidated its position as a leading API security provider by introducing the industry’s first unified Gateway for APIs and SOA services. SOA Software will continue investing in its API Management platform and exceeding customer expectations through sustained improvements in usability, performance, scalability, and security features in 2014.

The company received Microsoft Gold ISV certification and launched a new product specifically designed to extend applications built with Microsoft technology as APIs. SOA Software’s long-standing relationship with IBM has continued to be a lucrative one. SOA Software has extended its product offerings for IBM by enabling REST support for IBM DataPower. The company also entered into strategic partnerships with several large system integrators including Wipro Systems, Perficient and Persistent Systems, to help its customers implement their API and SOA Strategies. These strategic partnerships enable the company to focus on core product innovation, while relying on the deep expertise of these strategic partners to make our customers successful with product implementations.
