Axway Named a Leader in Gartner Application Services Governance Magic Quadrant
Combining API Management with application integration, B2B and MFT to help customers govern their flows of data
PHOENIX – August 20, 2013 – Axway (NYSE Euronext: AXW.PA), a market leader in governing the flow of data, today announced it is positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s 2013 Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance (1). This report comes off the heels of Axway also being named a Leader in Gartner’s 2013 Magic Quadrant for On-premises Application Integration Suites (2). Both reports are available for download from: http://www2.axway.com/l/8662/2013-08-19/dfpw7.
According to the report, “driven by the transformations the Nexus of Forces cause, users who need solutions to support their API management and SOA governance efforts will find that providers in the application services governance space have sensibly extended their offerings, both on-premises and in the cloud.”
Part of the Axway 5 Suite, the Axway API Server is an enterprise class API delivery platform for all types of APIs. Fortune 500 enterprises and government agencies around the world rely on Axway to achieve standardized API delivery to ensure the security, performance, and high availability of their mission critical applications. APIs increasingly play a central role as companies continue to invest in mobile application, big data, cloud computing and social collaboration. By combining API Management with SOA Governance, application integration, MFT, B2B and community management, the Axway 5 Suite helps companies instill a greater degree of visibility and control of their data flows.
“With data flows extending across the enterprise and beyond the edge into other ecosystems like cloud and mobile, it’s clear traditional middleware and integration technologies are not designed to adequately govern these flows,” said Dean Hidalgo, Executive Vice President, Global Marketing at Axway. “The convergence of API Management with application integration, B2B, and managed file transfer is being driven by customer demand for data flow governance. We believe being named a Leader in the 2013 Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance, which immediately follows our recognition as a Leader in the 2013 Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites, is validation of this trend.”
