Axway Empowers the Next Generation of Business Interactions with New Suite Offering

As the adoption of, and the investment in, mobile applications, big data, cloud computing, and social collaboration surges forward, organizations are finding a growing need to focus their attention on governing their flow of data. In response, Axway (NYSE Euronext: AXW.PA) announces Axway 5 Suite -- the only offering on the market that enables complete lifecycle control and optimization of all information exchanged within the enterprise and externally.

Axway 5 Suite delivers a comprehensive way to manage and govern complex data flows, end-to-end, and provide visibility and integration between legacy systems, B2B communities and the cloud, as well as enable mobile applications. The Suite also includes API management capabilities that enable organizations to manage, deliver, and secure all their APIs from a single technology platform, including REST/JSON, HTTP/SOAP, and many other protocols.

Marking the fifth generation of the Axway offering, Axway 5 Suite represents the convergence of managed file transfer, B2B integration and API management, and includes significant enhancements to the core MFT and B2B technologies. Furthermore, by leveraging API management as a key differentiator and value add, the Suite provides users with a top-down, centralized view of all its services that interact with various systems within the enterprise. This interoperability and visibility enables a high degree of cohesion across the suite’s functional components.

Axway provides a unique combination of extended capabilities to achieve more granular control while supporting all data flow patterns be it files or messaging, intra or inter data exchange, cloud/mobile to ground/on-premise, etc. Customers will also benefit from real-time data flow analytics that can be viewed from any web browser or mobile device to gain valuable insight into the business operations, along with event or non-event driven alerts and reports to ensure a high degree of reliability of all data flows.

“Most IT organizations face daunting challenges governing the flow of data that typically span multiple and disparate systems, extending to the edge of the enterprise and beyond. Ultimately, businesses want to know that their stakeholders have access to the right information, at the right time, and in the form needed. Otherwise, they lose control and risk loss of business and potential opportunities,” said Christophe Fabre, CEO at Axway. “To effectively govern data flows simply exposing legacy system APIs is not enough. Additional functionality such as security, policy management, visibility and data flow analytics are all key requirements.”

Many of the world’s leading organizations including Fortune 1000 companies, spanning all industries including automotive, Federal government, healthcare, supply chain, etc., have turned to Axway to help them govern their flow of data. Existing Axway customers that currently run various component of the suite, including Synchrony, are already leveraging Axway 5 Suite to govern their data flows with no migration required.

“Bank of the West has a number of external and internal technology initiatives underway that would traditionally require individual solutions for each initiative. The Axway 5 Suite platform has allowed us to deliver a number of services by leveraging a single solution. These include integrated cash management services for our commercial customers to enterprise application integration,” said Dan Nagy, Cash Management Division Manager for Bank of the West, a San Francisco-based bank with $63 billion in assets.”

Axway 5 Suite offers a holistic approach to governing the flow of data with an additional focus on governance at the enterprise edge. In addition, Axway 5 Suite extends the edge of the enterprise so that the benefits of sharing and consuming public or private cloud services are realized in a secure and managed way. In summary Axway 5 Suite helps manage:

  • Interactions – Governance of data flows, end-to-end, across the enterprise and B2B communities, with the ability to easily on-board new partners and customers.
  • Policy – Policies can be put in place and enforced in order to guarantee that interactions happen as expected and metrics can be checked for compliance against SLAs.
  • Visibility – Stakeholders can achieve end-to-end visibility of all data flows, with alerts, reports and real-time data flow analytics to anticipate and remedy problems before they occur.
  • Integration – Axway 5 Suite enables the exchange of information, whether large files or messages, between business entities (people, applications, or enterprises), wherever they might be located (cloud or on-premise) in an intelligent, reliable and secure manner.
  • Security – Axway 5 Suite ensures access security and prevents intrusions and data breaches. At the same time, it empowers organizations to use the enterprise edge to provide access that creates and extends value, instead of simply defending it as a boundary.

2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you. Today smart buildings have no such collective conscience, no shared set of fundamental services to identify, predict and synchronize around us. LiveSpace and M2Mi are changing that. LiveSpace Smart Environment devices deliver over the M2Mi IoT Platform real time presence, awareness and intent analytics as a service to local connected devices. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Sarah Cooper, VP Business of Development at M2Mi, will d...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In this session, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, will describe how to revolutionize your architecture and...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
We’re entering a new era of computing technology that many are calling the Internet of Things (IoT). Machine to machine, machine to infrastructure, machine to environment, the Internet of Everything, the Internet of Intelligent Things, intelligent systems – call it what you want, but it’s happening, and its potential is huge. IoT is comprised of smart machines interacting and communicating with other machines, objects, environments and infrastructures. As a result, huge volumes of data are being generated, and that data is being processed into useful actions that can “command and control” thi...
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

Thanks to widespread Internet adoption and more than 10 billion connected devices around the world, companies became more excited than ever about the Internet of Things in 2014. Add in the hype around Google Glass and the Nest Thermostat, and nearly every business, including those from traditionally low-tech industries, wanted in. But despite the buzz, some very real business questions emerged – mainly, not if a device can be connected, or even when, but why? Why does connecting to the cloud create greater value for the user? Why do connected features improve the overall experience? And why do...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
The multi-trillion economic opportunity around the "Internet of Things" (IoT) is emerging as the hottest topic for investors in 2015.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ed Maguire, Senior Analyst at CLSA Americas, will describe what is new and different about IoT, explore financial, technological and real-world impact across consumer and business use cases. Why now? Significant corporate and venture...
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., discussed how you can create applications that run on all mobile devices as well as laptops and desktops using a visual drag-and-drop application – and eForms-buildi...
