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.

There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand.

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.
The IoT is upon us, but today’s databases, built on 30-year-old math, require multiple platforms to create a single solution. Data demands of the IoT require Big Data systems that can handle ingest, transactions and analytics concurrently adapting to varied situations as they occur, with speed at scale. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, chief strategy officer at Deep Information Sciences, will look differently at IoT data so enterprises can fully leverage their IoT potential. He’ll share tips on how to speed up business initiatives, harness Big Data and remain one step ahead by apply...

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
