Pivotal and Axway have partnered over the past year to offer solutions to our mutual customers. On October 25, 2019, Pivotal published the BETA version of the Axway AMPLIFY™ API Management Service Broker for Pivotal Platform.
AMPLIFY™ API Management Service Broker for Pivotal Platform
The Axway AMPLIFY™ API Management Service Broker for Pivotal Platform allows companies to extend the value of their Pivotal Platform by integrating the Pivotal apps and services through Axway AMPLIFY™ API Management. The Pivotal Platform brings to the Pivotal developers a rich set of API Management options:
• Robust API security
• A single-entry and secure point to the Pivotal apps and services running in one or more environments
• Policy enforcement
• Unified API catalog
• API rate limiting
• Message mediation
• Authorization based on keys or scopes
• API analytics
The integration is implemented as a Pivotal Platform Service Broker—based on the Fully Brokered Service pattern. With this approach, customers can integrate with an existing AMPLIFY™ API Management solution, or they can deploy AMPLIFY™ API Management on their choice of infrastructure (on-premise, Pivotal Container Service (PKS) or any other cloud provider).
Need for a service broker

Functionality requested would allow developers to achieve the required level of:
• App security
• Request transformation and enrichment
• Monitoring and analytics
• Exposing an API catalog of apps and services
