APIs and microservices connect today's modern enterprises and applications. However, IT is struggling to keep up with the pace of digital transformation that requires connectivity to an overwhelming number of APIs, applications, data and services. The challenge grows even more when needing to secure and govern these APIs and integrations when opened for internal and omnichannel consumption. And then, IT reaches a breaking point when their "surface area" spans private, public and hybrid cloud architectures.
As we look to the future, the challenges will only become more acute for enterprises. To address today's challenges, and get ahead of the competition, enterprises need an API Platform that enables IT and developers to secure and manage APIs through their full lifecycle, to build ecosystems and modern applications, and centrally govern an on-premise, cloud and multi-cloud API infrastructure.
Axway a Leader in Gartner 2019 Magic Quadrant for API Full Life Cycle Management
Well, you have likely seen the news that Axway is named a leader in the Gartner 2019 Magic Quadrant Full Life Cycle API Management. We believe this is another example of our compelling vision and customer success with our API Management and AMPLIFY offerings.
Our vision is rooted in the belief that an API Platform needs to enable enterprise growth and innovation backed with best-in-class security, governance and openness. This manifests itself by:
- Faster cycle time to innovation: plan, code, build, test, deploy, improve APIs for omni experiences
- Centrally govern to increase discovery, collaboration and productivity
- Is open and plays well with others in an on-premise, cloud, multi-cloud API infrastructure
This vision is a reality for thousands of Axway customers. Today, they use our API Platform for API integration, B2B, mobile, open banking, IoT, Managed File Transfer and content collaboration. Emerging from these use cases is the addition of streaming and event-driven APIs where real-time data is a competitive advantage in various industries such as Banking and Telecommunications.
When we speak with many of these customers, the resounding priority is growth through digital transformation. Which means enterprises can't wait to grow once they've digitally transformed. No, they need to grow while they transform. In combining an API Platform with the broader Axway integration capabilities into one platform (AMPLIFY), Axway is uniquely positioned to help customers grow through digital transformation.
We are very pleased to be recognized as a leader in the Gartner 2019 Magic Quadrant for API Full Life Cycle Management. With API Management and Integration at the heart of our hybrid integration platform AMPLIFY™, we provide customers the broadest and deepest set of capabilities to build API-based ecosystems, secure and govern their entire lifecycle and to unlock innovation.
