Axway’s differentiators include a strong implementation methodology, tooling guidance, and out-of-the-box (OOTB) dashboards for immediate business value.” The report also recognized Axway for offering “about 15 analytics libraries for any industry OOTB and some vertical analytics, more specifically, for financial services.” As a Leader in the report, Axway received the highest score in the “Current Offering” category.
According to Gartner, “Midsize enterprises can derive a great benefit from taking a strategic approach to content collaboration. IT Leaders in such organizations should use this report to identify CCP [Content Collaboration Platform] vendors that are focused on or especially suited for midsize business.”
According to the report, Gartner states that: “Content collaboration platforms are the evolution of the EFSS destination products and address digital workplace enablement strategies. Application leaders can choose among a range of options to transform individual productivity, team collaboration and business workflow automation.”
“Ovum analyzed cost-of-ownership figures for B2B integration managed services against the proposition of maintaining an in-house B2B integration team with the requisite expertise and found that cloud-based B2B integration services under a managed services model can reduce operating costs by 30% to 40%.”
“This report provides an overview of Axway's business-to-business (B2B) integration managed services offering based on Ovum's evaluation of providers that should be on the radar of enterprises interested in outsourcing B2B integration projects.”

Ovum “On the Radar” is a series of research notes about vendors bringing innovative ideas, products, or business models to their markets.
According to Gartner, “Analytics and BI modernization programs are expanding their use of operations intelligence platforms […] Between 2016 and 2019, spending on real-time analytics will grow three times faster than spending on non-real-time analytics.”
According to Gartner analysts Paolo Malinverno and Mark O’Neill, “It is generally preferable to choose an overall API management solution from a single vendor that provides full life cycle API management. API management has evolved from being focused only on running APIs to taking a broader view of the API, its design and its usage across the full API life cycle.”
Following a comprehensive evaluation of API management vendors for market impact, execution and technology, Axway was recognized for the completeness of its solution’s end-to-end capabilities and growing leadership in supporting API-led digital transformation initiatives.

As the market for API management solutions gets more and more crowded, enterprise IT leaders want assurances their API solutions will have the highest strategic value for their businesses. In a September, 2015 report, Forrester Research sized up the API management provider field and positioned Axway as one of four established vendors who are significantly advancing their current offerings. Forrester summarizes that the Axway solution provides “strong security gateway, transformation, and B2B integration” and “has the best features and strategy for partner APIs.” Forrester’s predicted velocity for future solution development = Fast (vs. slow or moderate).
The report examined vendors’ capabilities within the API security management market, evaluating specifically for service and API virtualization, security and threat mitigation, identity and access control, and availability and performance. Axway is positioned among the Leaders within all four API security management leadership categories: Overall, Product, Market, and Innovation. Upon evaluation of key product features and service, Axway was given the highest rating of “Strong Positive” for all categories of security, functionality, integration, interoperability and usability.

Axway is also the only vendor in the report designated as having all differentiating features in the MFT space present. Additionally, Axway received a “Best In Class” for “Role Based Security” due to its data flow governance capabilities, specifically around delegated administration, to empower and provide self-service to lines of business in a shared services context.

2015 marks the second consecutive time Axway has been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance. The Leaders positioning is based on qualities enterprises value highly in an application integration partner – its ability to execute solutions and the completeness of its stated vision.
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. “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.”
For the second consecutive year, Axway is positioned as a "Leader" in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites (Axway 5 Suite). According to the Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites, “Leaders in the Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites are vendors with a proven, comprehensive and integrated set of products that customers use for projects such as A2A, B2B, cloud-to-on-premises and cloud-to-cloud integration."

Champions “have a strong market presence and are usually the trend setters for the industry.” According to Stewart Bond, Senior Consulting Analyst, at Info-Tech Research Group, “Axway’s MFT solutions should be on the shortlist for large enterprises with complex file transfer and integration needs. The multi-product MFT portfolio allows organizations to customize and add functionality, rather than purchasing a complex solution with unneeded capabilities. Axway is continuing to expand on its abilities for end-to-end data transfer and integration, recently acquiring the Vordel API server to compete in the emerging API economy.”

The “Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance,” authored by Paolo Malinverno, states, “driven by the transformations the Nexus of Forces cause, users who need solutions to support their API management and SOA governance efforts will find that providers in the application services governance space have sensibly extended their offerings, both on-premises and in the cloud.”

According to the report, “initially, these integration patterns were applied for internal, application-to-application (A2A) integration and for integrating an organization's applications with those of its trading partners — that is, B2B integration. Today, the patterns are applied to a broader array of application integration projects.” “Enterprises need systematic application integration functionality supporting robust messaging, multiple B2B protocols and cloud APIs. We examine vendors with products providing features addressing the needs of systematic application-to-application, B2B and cloud-based application.”
