Gartner Cool Vendor

SUNNYVALE, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- 3scale has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors" in the March 2010 "Cool Vendors in Cloud Management, 2010" report(1) by Gartner, Inc. With 3scale CONNECT, the company's Plug & Play self-service solution and 3scale ENTERPRISE, a tailor-made solution for enterprises, 3scale provides innovative companies with the tools needed to build and develop their API business and embrace the future of the cloud.

According to the report, "Enterprises considering a public API initiative should explore the potential of cloud-based management and intermediation solutions."

As APIs are becoming the common denominator of cloud-based services, whether private or public, mobile or Web, more and more companies are willing to leverage that opportunity of developing new sources of revenue. 3scale helps them to implement their API business strategy and focus on creating and expanding a valuable ecosystem of partners and developers instead of spending time and money on creating a services management infrastructure.

"The API space is seeing massive acceleration right now. We believe being included in the Gartner Cool Vendors Report shows how much traction we're getting. 3scale is the go-to partner for flexible deployments with customers from large enterprises to small startups," said Steven Willmott co-founder and CEO of 3scale.
