At re:Invent, a gathering of developers and technical leaders from the Amazon Web Services (AWS) community, Axway announced the availability of its Axway Enterprise API Management solution on the AWS Marketplace. Enterprises can now make use of the power and scalability of the Axway API Gateway on AWS to manage, deliver, and secure their enterprise APIs. Unlike other API Management offerings, Axway API Gateway saves customers money by overcoming the expense and inefficiencies of completely separate management of B2B, SOA, and APIs.
Terry Hanold, Vice President, Cloud Commerce, AWS said, “AWS welcomes Axway to our network of technology vendors that help to enable customers to more easily gain the benefits of the cloud. Customers will be excited to combine the performance and scalability of the Axway API Gateway with the scalability of Amazon EC2. Our scalable services complement the Axway API Gateway and offer Axway customers additional deployment flexibility.”
According to Gartner predictions, “More than two-thirds of all new integration flows will extend outside the enterprise firewall by 2017.” Consequently organisations need to have in place a comprehensive governance infrastructure capable of responding to the demands of exposing data flows for consumption in this extended trading environment.
“APIs have become key to all B2B collaborations as companies expose business services across the corporate firewall; in fact, it’s expected that the majority of B2B interactions will occur through APIs over the next few years,” said Dean Hidalgo, executive vice president, global marketing, Axway. “By making the Axway API Gateway available on AWS Marketplace, we offer our customers the ability to leverage the flexibility and scalability of AWS to govern their data flows as they extend beyond the enterprise edge to include B2B, mobile and cloud integration.”
