This is a very exciting week for Axway as we announce the acquisition of Appcelerator and take an important step forward in our ability to help enterprises supercharge their digital business transformations. It is also an exciting day for me personally and as a CEO, as I have the privilege to bring new talent, enthusiasm, innovation and product excellence on board. I am so pleased to welcome Appcelerator founders Jeff and Nolan and each member of the Appcelerator team to Axway, and enjoyed...
As the mobile ecosystem and consumer reliance on their devices grows, businesses are making their mobility strategy front-and-center in their growth plans. Companies that aren’t making customer engagement via mobile a top priority are doing so at the risk of becoming irrelevant. This shift is not isolated to an industry vertical; its ramifications are being seen across the board. A few examples to highlight include Retail (loyalty apps, mobile commerce, self service kiosks, mobile payments...
A Message from a Supply Chain Organization: All I Want for Christmas is a Digital Business Strategy Under My Tree
I work for an organization that operates in the global supply chain, and I hope the North Pole is treating you well and you’re well prepared for this holiday season. Normally, I write to tell you how good I’ve been and how this year I want the latest and great tech toys, but this year I figured I’d switch it up and ask for a few things that I need to move my business forward – and you always deliver the best gifts, so hopefully you can help out.
With another year...
As human beings, we’re always trying to connect with one another through a common language. And if Oxford Dictionaries is any indication, emojis are exploding in popularity as a method to do so. Well, the technology sector is no different: as organizations continue to develop apps to engage new and existing customers, they’re discovering that there’s a common language that underlies every new app-related service and...
Most people don’t realize how big of a role APIs play in day-to-day interactions. Are you checking that handy weather app to see if you need to break out the winter boots or can push through another week of wearing flip-flops? APIs are behind that. Are you searching on Yelp to find a dining spot for your best friend’s birthday celebration? APIs are behind that, too.
In honor of the heavy lifting APIs do behind the scenes and the fact that Thanksgiving is right around the corner, we’d...
The Gartner AADI (Application Architecture, Development & Integration) Summit is just weeks away. Each year, this event is an opportunity for architects at leading organizations to connect and discuss the latest trends in application and systems design. This year, the focus is on “Empowering Innovation, Leading Transformation”. Topics covered will include API strategies, business analytics, and how to design powerful user experiences.
Remember how all those “survivalist” TV shows were all the rage a few years ago? In these shows the host would get dropped into a highly uninhabitable region and would document their “path to freedom.” This would often involve the host having to hack or untangle their way out of a jungle or forest, and at the beginning of each adventure you could tell – even though they were pros...
Autonomous vehicles (or driverless cars, as they’re commonly referred to) are increasingly making strides towards becoming a reality on roads across the world, but they’re a relatively new innovation in the automotive world. However, they have generated enough buzz over the past few years that they are now at the peak of inflated expectations in Gartner’s latest highly regarded and influential annual report, “Hype Cycle for Emerging...
Even though it has now been 30 years since the first Back to the Future film burst onto our screens, movie fans will need no reminder of the classic scene where Doc insists that Marty return to the future with him. And with Back to the Future Day coinciding with Axway Connections 2015 recently, it seemed only appropriate to look at how...
To ensure that our products and services can support the unique needs of our various customers, we spend a lot of time at Axway talking about and analyzing the economic and technological forces that are impacting the digital journeys of organizations across all kinds of industries. In fact, you could say it’s an obsession.
And while this is an incredibly valuable process that helps to inform our entire product strategy, at the end of the day, there is no substitute to learning from...
At Axway Connnections 2015 last week, Matt Graney and I presented a session on the "Digital Journey Around the World." As an Aussie and Irishman respectively, Matt and I gave a global focus to the journey - so it really was a journey around the world.
By happy coincidence, last week was an important time in the parallel world of the movie "Back to the Future"; it was the time when the characters returned to the future (i.e. October 2015). In keeping with this theme, Matt and I started...
Last week we hosted our customers and partners at Axway Connections 2015 at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort in Arizona to discuss the journey to digital.
The week was packed with excellent conversations and included a perfect combination of real-world digital transformation stories and guidance from industry experts at Accenture, Forrester Research, Deloitte, Infosys and many others. We brought together...
We have just finished up Axway Connections North America and it really has been excellent to spend all this time with our customers and partners.
From our CEO Jean-Marc Lazzari’s inspirational keynote presentation on the digital journey and Jeanine...
We have just finished the first full day of sessions at Axway Connections North America and – it was full of great conversations.
The day started with an inspiring discussion on the age of the customer from our CEO Jean-Marc Lazzari. We then heard from Accenture, Dun & Bradstreet, and National Australia Bank, who shared their real-world digital...
Everyone is talking about digital business. And whichever way you turn, there’s no escaping the impact that digital technologies such as cloud computing, mobile, social, and the Internet of Things are having on organizations across every industry.
If we step back a minute, the changes have been startling. Half of Fortune 500 companies have disappeared since 2000. And as Nigel Fenwick will explain in his presentation at Axway Connections North America tomorrow, it is now a case of...
For those of you who haven’t read Martin Fowler’s seminal article on microservices; you should. It’s considered gospel, one of the definitive pieces for microservices experts. Many of us have learned a lot from Fowler over the years; yes I confess I read UML Distilled. And so I have a confession to make about microservices to Fowler, which seems even more appropriate with the Pope visiting the US this past week. It’s also...
With just a few weeks until the Axway Connections 2015 North America conference, we are super excited about the fantastic agenda and line-up we have prepared for our customers and partners at this year’s event. This year we’re heading back to Scottsdale, Arizona to enjoy the sunshine and hear from a wide range of customers and Axway executives about the latest and greatest in enabling the digital business. We have a strong selection of...
We are witnessing incredible changes in the new era of digital business that we live in today. Digitalization is changing the face of trade, retail, commerce, business and social interactions before our eyes. This is a new frontier and I believe banking has a special role to play.
As speed, convenience and integration across online, mobile and partner channels shift from “perks” to prerequisites, an entire service chain is affected. Take these points, for example:
Whether you want to admit it or not you’ve most likely heard of the Kardashian/Jenner family. You may know the Kardashian name from the OJ Simpson trial back in 1995, or their recent fame from their reality television show on the E! network. It’s getting harder and harder to not keep up with them (believe us, we’ve tried).
As part of their latest effort to better engage with fans, the Kardashian/Jenner clan launched four individual websites and apps to give fans a bigger insight into...
In the journey to becoming a digital business, organizations today are making massive investments in social, mobile, cloud, big data and IoT technologies to improve the customer experience, create new revenue streams and increase operational efficiency. What these digital business investments require are the delivery of APIs that go beyond the firewall and also expose sensitive data to threats from hackers.
To help address these potential threats and protect business, partner and...
