Sensedia, a Brazilian technology company focused on APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) and Agile Architecture is starting its business in the US. For the first time in the Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Full Lifecycle API Management, the company has been positioned as a Visionary. It presents itself as an alternative to companies from several industries by offering a powerful API Platform together with top-of-class Professional Services. Sensedia ended 2016 with 75% of growth compared to 2015 and over 100 employees. The company was also named by Forrester as a Strong Performer on the Forrester Wave for API Management, late in 2016.
Sensedia is part of CI&T Group, global specialist in digital transformation, which already has offices in the USA and a strong presence in Asia, with branches in China and Japan. CI&T is a provider of consultancy in digital maturity assessment and general API strategy Professional Services. As an official and certified Sensedia Partner, it will strengthen and support the Sensedia’s new businesses in the US and Japan.
“Gartner’s recognition presents Sensedia as a company able to drive innovation in an agile way and, at the same time, shows we have the consistency needed to manage large accounts”, says Kleber Bacili, Sensedia’s CEO.
This is the first time Sensedia is positioned in this Full Lifecycle API Management quadrant and for Gartner analysts the 10-year-old company has a high level of customer satisfaction, and ensures that deployments successfully go live in a managed way. Besides that, for Gartner, Sensedia understands the industrial IoT usage of APIs at scale. “Outside of Brazil, Sensedia hopes to deliver the same quality and excellence for customers from financial services, marketplaces and payments sectors, as well as other companies and segments searching a specialized and highly technological solution in APIs”, says Bacili.
In Brazil, Sensedia has customers from several segments, including financial institutions, technology, loyalty and retail. Among them there are Azul (airline), Cnova and Netshoes (retail), Natura (beauty), SulAmérica (insurance) and Bradesco (bank). The company is responsible for the API strategy of the main marketplaces in the country by integrating online stores and marketplaces with Sensedia API Platform.
According to Gartner, technology research and advisory company, focus has shifted toward API programs and their fundamental role in the execution of digital strategies, which includes getting value out of the API economy. Projects have become smaller (focusing on very few APIs at any one time) and more business-oriented, and require very quick execution. The visionary companies in the quadrant, like Sensedia, typically approach the market with a fresh view from an innovative angle.
Sensedia’s solution can be delivered on the cloud or on-premise, and there is a considerable number of customers that count on Sensedia’s consulting, integration, guidance and development services. Additionally, Sensedia API Platform has been used in CI&T’s industrial IoT solution, running on the Google Cloud platform.
Sensedia was as well listed on the Forrester Wave for API Management as Strong Performer with highlights for its strategy (innovation roadmap and planned enhancements) and supporting services. The research company pointed out Sensedia for its current offerings – portal for API users, API publishing, security policy and integration, API product management and product architecture.
The company also holds an API Conference called API Experience, the main API event in Latin America which has had speakers from Google, Spotify, Fitbit, Twitter and local segment leaders companies. The event performed in 2015, 2016 and this year was held on May 30th, in São Paulo (at WTC Event Center).
