Enterprise API Strategy Amplify Platform Enterprise Marketplace

The API long game. Leading with consistency and perseverance.

Axway is named a Leader in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Full Life Cycle API Management.

I’m proud to announce that Axway is named a Leader in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Full Life Cycle API Management.¹ This marks the seventh time that Axway has been recognized.

Axway is also recognized in the 2022 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Full Life Cycle API Management² receiving the highest score (3.5 out of 5) for the Distributed API Management Use Case. This is the first year this use case has been evaluated in the Critical Capabilities for Full Life Cycle Management report.

APIs continue to help companies reimagine what’s possible in a digitally powered world, where sound business decisions rest on real-time data points and everyday life is made more convenient and meaningful with just a tap.

In the excitement around the limitless potential for API applicability and innovation, API technology companies that maintain an enduring steadiness of purpose may jostle some, but they always reassess and readjust to stay true to their vision. As it turns out, stability and agility are a winning formula.

Axway’s product strategy attests to that. For over 20 years, companies have come to us for the best in managed file transfer and business-to-business integration. They still do. And we’ll continue to be a steady partner for them as they move their operations to the cloud with API-enabled B2B and MFT. But, of course, our success in playing the long game extends beyond traditional data integration. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be writing this.

Consistently innovative

As APIs took center stage in digital transformation initiatives, we introduced our universal API management platform, Amplify. This ushered in a new era of open API platform technology aimed at helping companies unleash the total value of their digital ecosystem by developing, connecting, and governing APIs across multiple patterns and platforms — on-premises and in any cloud or hybrid cloud. Enterprises could suddenly Open Everything: new services, experiences, and markets.

Amplify now serves as the foundational platform for an entirely new kind of API marketplace you’ll be hearing a lot about in the coming weeks and months. Amplify Enterprise Marketplace is all about moving your digital business initiative faster by making your APIs easier to adopt – thereby adding greater business value to each API.

Enterprise Marketplace is truly unique. It enables you to package and categorize all your APIs in a centralized marketplace that you’ve built, so external app developers can find and consume the right API faster and bring your embedded digital services into new markets sooner. Together with the Amplify Platform, Enterprise Marketplace provides:

Potential new revenue streams

Monetize APIs by treating them as products that external companies can purchase through subscription to get their services out to the market faster.

Agent-based, multi-gateway support

Integrate multiple API gateway solutions and data planes with no new infrastructure or policies in the data path. Users get a unified experience regardless of endpoint type and location.

Curation and aggregation

Curate, aggregate, categorize, tag, and version APIs into logical groups so that capabilities published into the marketplace are manageable as products and not just APIs.

Total observability

Use comprehensive dashboards to view API adoption and performance metrics for both API consumers and providers across all connected environments.

Proven security

Leverage discovery of unmanaged APIs, automated identification of non-compliant services, and prebuilt security policies to protect your business.

Keeping customers on a steady track

Axway is not only about product technology. As much as we maintain a firm bearing into the future, we help our partners and customers do the same. Our Catalysts – an elite group of experts in API and digital transformation technology – help enterprises form a solid strategy at the beginning of their API journey and act as a compass that keeps them on a steady course to the digital transformation outcomes they hope to achieve.

And so, as we again celebrate being named a Leader in the Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Full Life Cycle API Management, I’m convinced this perennial recognition speaks to the potency of Axway’s stability and trustworthiness as a success enabler who prioritizes the importance of always showing up and never giving up.
