Gartner has now named Axway a Leader in the 2021 Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management six times, and Axway is positioned as a Leader again this year! We believe our steady execution, and differentiated vision, demonstrate our ability to empower customers to deliver their most complex and innovative API initiatives.
Why the right API Platform is central to enterprise IT strategy
Gartner Magic Quadrant named Axway six times a Leader in Full Life Cycle API Management
Today’s environment demands speed, innovation, automation, and constant change. To address these demands, organizations in every industry must Open Everything. To open and connect systems, applications, and workflows across their IT infrastructure. To enable collaboration with business partners, developers, and global supply chains.
As APIs normalize the enterprise surface area unlocking innovation and better customer experiences, I believe it is imperative to select the right API platform. One that offers best-in-class security governing enterprise traffic. One that brings all your enterprise assets into a unified catalog and marketing. One that opens these enterprise assets to new users through a low-code approach. And one that offers deployment choice, event-driven capabilities, and API integration.
Unlock innovation and collaboration through a composable ecosystem
My experience with customers struggling to select their API platform is the number of choices available in the market. Everything from open source, to cloud native, to SaaS, to on-premises. A menu of choices poses challenges in making a confident selection. This is especially true when the platform you chose is strategic to enabling your enterprise and ecosystem to operate at full speed.
And this comes to Axway’s point of view for Full Life Cycle API Management and recognized stance on the market. We have built our API strategy not solely on our API gateways, but to embrace other vendors API gateways. This empowers your teams with the choices they have made and will make while bringing in APIs to a single catalog, a single point of visibility to support audits and to further productivity from your teams. And yes, we have a leading API Gateway in there too.
We couldn’t be more proud, and grateful, for the customers we’ve partnered with to drive their strategic API initiatives forward. Just look at how market data solutions provider Xignite is helping fintechs build next-generation investment and trading services with Amplify:
“When retail trading platforms began to take off, we recognized that clients’ usage of our API platform was set to shift significantly,” said Vijay Choudhary, VP, Product Management, Market Data Solutions, Xignite. “We knew that many fintechs would soon want to deliver real-time market data directly to their end customers’ mobile devices. For Xignite, the objective was to find the most reliable and efficient way of bringing these game-changing new services to market.”
Or how URSSAF – Caisse Nationale, the French government agency that collects social security contributions and redistributes benefits, manages the country’s social safety net: “Using Amplify, we can provide a 360-degree view through a single API-powered portal, which is good for everyone,” explained URSSAF CIO Jean-Baptiste Courouble.
And how, powered by Axway, Italian open finance pioneer Fabrick is vying to become Europe’s leading open finance ecosystem: “In our view, Amplify is bulletproof, and we are extremely impressed by its stability as well as its high-availability capabilities,” said Fabrick CIO Giulio Rattone.
