After establishing itself as a SOA governance repository vendor in the 2000s, Sensedia implemented an API management platform that has come to dominate the market in its home country of Brazil.
Globally, the API management market has largely consolidated, with CA Technologies’ 2013 acquisition of Layer 7 Technologies, followed by Googles’ acquisition of Apigee and Rogue Wave’s acquisition of Akana, both in 2016. Offerings from Software AG and IBM round out the market.
Bringing its standalone API management product to Europe and eventually North America may be a challenge given the dominance of such larger players – but Sensedia has an ace up its sleeve.
It’s completely rewriting its aging SOA governance repository as a modern, container-savvy API governance tool, thus potentially filling an important niche in the burgeoning Kubernetes marketplace.
