Phoenix, AZ - 29 September 2014

Industry Recognition Reinforces Strong Momentum for Deployment of Axway’s B2Bi Gateway Software 

Axway, a market leader in governing the flow of data, today announced that leading IT market research and advisory firm IDC has named it a “Leader” in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Business-to-Business Integration Gateway Software 2014 Vendor Assessment (IDC #250741), September 2014. The report evaluated various B2Bi gateway software solutions and examined specific core areas including onboarding, mapping, transformation, orchestration, troubleshooting, visibility and reporting, and protocol support.

The IDC MarketScape not only named Axway a “Leader” but also a “disruptive innovator” because it consistently leads the market with innovations in B2Bi technology. Elaborating on Axway’s leadership in the B2Bi gateway software space, the report stated¹:

  • “Axway has acquired best-of-breed technology vendors like Vordel (for API Management) and Systar (for analytics) to remain on the edge of innovation.”
  • “Axway was the only vendor that was able to demonstrate API Management capabilities in its suite of B2Bi products.”
  • “Axway has an architecturally solid offering with high availability and reliability built into the product.”
  • “Positive feedback from customers included Axway's product's stability in production and intuitiveness of the product's user interface (UI).”

“Business-to-business integration gateway requirements can range from simple, batch-oriented exchange of a few types of trading documents between a few trading partners, to complicated, global platforms that are mission critical and real time," said Chandana Gopal, research manager, multi-enterprise integration at IDC. "Understanding the capabilities and supported standards of B2Bi gateway software is critical to the success of a B2Bi implementation."

Axway B2Bi, part of the Axway 5 Suite, has completed Drummond Certification for AS2 and AS3. The AS4 implementation in Axway B2Bi 2.1 is currently being certified, completing Axway B2Bi with the latest upcoming protocols. The solution integrates enterprise-class functionality to provide highly available, reliable and secure B2B communications and seamless enterprise application integration with back-end systems. By providing an integration solution consisting of B2B integration, managed file transfer and API management, Axway 5 Suite provides a single solution for governing the flow of data inside and outside of an organization.

“Being named a ‘Leader’ and a ‘disruptive innovator’ in the IDC MarketScape for the B2B Integration Gateway Software market is a testament to our commitment to delivering innovative and robust integration solutions for our customers,” said Dean Hidalgo, executive vice president, global marketing, Axway. “API Management is colliding with other well established middleware integration technology markets, and it is encouraging to see that IDC has recognized Axway’s leadership in this space.”
