27 September 2004, Uxbridge, Middlesex, UK - Egg, the world's largest pure online bank, has signed a deal with Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) vendor Axway to standardise on eXtended File Broker (XFB), Axway's next generation data integration and delivery suite.
With over three million customers using its online services, and hundreds of servers in multiple locations, Egg had increasing amounts of data being transferred internally and needed a reliable method of exchanging sensitive customer information that left a secure audit trail of all transactions.
The Global monitoring and control tools from Axway will give Egg detailed real-time and historical information from all their sources of data at a central point. The information is stored on a relational database and will make filtered views of the data available to both technical and business people.
The decision to buy from Axway will ensure that Egg's customers continue to receive a reliable and fast service despite the growth in its popularity. Egg has purchased XFB to integrate its AS/400, Unix and NT servers.
Martin Stern, General Manager at Axway UK, said: "Axway has over 30 years' experience in delivering integration solutions to financial institutions, experience that has been instrumental in helping us develop products that are robust enough for the most demanding of markets. Egg needed the very highest levels of reliability and security in order to continue to ensure it could respond to its growing number of customers."
