  • “The availability of published APIs means that a software developer can cobble together different mini-services already available—such as Google Maps meshed with Twilio (to add SMS messaging) along with other capabilities—to make something new and different. APIs, in short, let developers use other apps as building blocks for their own applications.”
  • Customers: “Greene highlighted some of Apigee’s more prominent customers, including Walgreens , AT&T , Bechtel, First Data, and Live Nation.”
  • “Mulesoft claims more than 1,000 business customers, including Coca-Cola , Unilever , and General Electric .”
  • “Mulesoft was valued at $1.5 billion after a $128 million funding round in May 2015. Greg Schott has said the company passed $100 million in revenue for its 2015 fiscal year and is on pace to double that amount this year.”
  • From Carl Lehmann’s July 2015 report on MuleSoft: $100m in 2014 bookings; “In Q1 2015, it reported it had 700 paying enterprise customers”
