Orange, Axiata's Apigate to Launch Digital API Hub in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa

Orange and Apigate, a subsidiary of Axiata Digital, announced a new partnership to strengthen their respective API hubs as part of their mutual ambition to advance global digital transformation.

Apigate and Orange’s new hub, Bizao will draw on their respective geographical strengths across Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, to deliver a suite of APIs to businesses, providing a streamlined and efficient method of accessing customers via a single entry point across regions.

APIs provide the impetus for digital revolution and innovation, enabling the delivery of new services such as mobile payment, communication, and identity. Through the partnership being discussed, APIs can be delivered to international and local companies alike, resulting in consolidation of traffic and expansion of reach.

The partnership will see Apigate delivering a Digital Enablement Hub to soon-to-be launched Bizao, as well as a hub-to-hub connection of the two operators’ API platforms to facilitate a single technical, commercial, and financial integration. This will enable faster deployment for businesses to distribute and monetise their services.

The integrated platform will address multiple operators across each of the operator’s respective footprints in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.

Thomas Chalumeau, Chief Strategy Officer, Middle East and Africa, Orange
This exciting partnership is emblematic of our vision for digital transformation for the region and how we wish to be partners to businesses from the smallest start-ups to the largest organisations to help them grasp the opportunities that the digital age affords.
