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.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses.

Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed distributed stream computation service that provides low latency, scalable processing of streaming data in the cloud with an enterprise grade SLA. It features built-in integration with Azur...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

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.
