To enable organizations to deliver and govern end-to-end flows of data across cloud, business partners and mobile apps, Axway, a market leader in governing the flow of data, announced the launch of Axway Application Programming Interface (API) Management 7.3, part of the Axway 5 Suite.
This release of Axway API Management combines the extensive management of business APIs with enhanced security, visibility and self-service capabilities. As a result, organizations can streamline operations, drive down costs, and avoid point-to-point architectures that are not only costly and fragile, but also increase risk by limiting visibility into data flows across the entire business.
According to Gartner, “APIs are new distribution channels. No CIO can ignore their business potential and the transformation they will cause in IT departments in the future, and because of the ubiquitous adoption of SOA and growing importance of mobile and Internet of Things, API management is essential in a Web-scale digital business environment. Without it, the organizations risk loss of productivity, efficiency and integrity of their information processes.”¹
Axway API Management is a combination of Axway API Gateway and Axway API Portal. With Axway API Management, customers benefit from:
“Most companies are just beginning to understand the full potential of the API economy,” said Mark O’Neill, vice president of innovation, Axway. “The latest release expands the reach of business APIs even further by giving companies a single technology foundation for delivering and reusing internal, B2B, cloud and mobile APIs. We are making the API economy a reality today.”
Available today on-premise and in the cloud, Axway API Management is part of the Axway 5 Suite, which leverages proven technologies such as API Management, B2B, MFT and Operational Intelligence to govern the flow of data across the enterprise and beyond the edge of the enterprise.
Axway has been identified as a sample vendor in Gartner’s "Hype Cycle for Application Infrastructure, 2014"² and the “Hype Cycle for Identity and Access Management Technologies, 2014”3 reports. Axway was named in the “Application Services Governance” and “Web Services Security Gateways” categories, respectively.
Axway is positioned as a Leader in the Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites and the Gartner 2013 Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance.4 Download the reports here: http://www2.axway.com/l/8662/2013-08-15/df9nr
