Why Digital is at the Top of the Business Agenda

March 26, 2015 | By Matt Graney

“Digital business” is a term that has been around for decades. In fact, it was mentioned in the second session of the 84th U.S. Congress in 1957, more than a decade before ARPANET (the network that was the basis for the Internet) was established, and 36 years before the debut of the World Wide Web that...

Is your MFT ready for Formula One?

March 22, 2015 | By John Andrews

Earlier this month the Formula 1 auto racing season kicked off at Albert Park in Melbourne, Australia. The start of the F1 season got me thinking: there is a lot about an F1 team that is similar to corporate organization. For each to perform at its peak, they need to ensure that teams support each other and the technology meets the demands. After all, technology is a huge component of an F1 team, as it is to companies of any size. And this started me thinking how MFT would fit into this...

SOA Is (Still) Not Dead (And Shouldn’t Be)

March 10, 2015 | By Mark O'Neill

“SOA is dead.” Those famous words are from back in 2009. But, read past the first three words, and you see “Long live services”. Services continue to be important, including their more recent incarnation as lightweight REST APIs. And, far from being dead, the principles of SOA - service reuse, a central registry of services, and loose coupling – are more important than ever.

Since then, we’ve seen SOA, the concept, continue to be widely embraced. As David Rubinstein of SD Times...

Is your MFT ready for love?

February 13, 2015 | By John Andrews

Before you write me off as crazy, let me explain!

I’m not suggesting Managed File Transfer (MFT) is something anyone should consider as a Valentine’s gift.

I’m suggesting MFT is part of the machine that makes Valentine’s Day better for everyone.

Here’s the thing: while Valentine’s Day has a long history, what’s fascinating to me is the increase in retail sales.

Valentine’s Day drives consumer purchases. It’s no Christmas, and it happens at a time when most...

Time to consider MFT to mitigate the risk of data breaches and non-compliance with regulatory mandates

December 8, 2014 | By Axway Blog Team

This a guest post by Saurabh Sharma, a Senior Analyst with Ovum IT and a member of Ovum’s Infrastructure Solutions team.

File transfer may seem to be a rather innocuous process from the perspective of business users, but IT keeps worrying about where the associated data will reside in the end and who would be able to access this data. Enterprise mobility and the emergence of cloud services have driven the uptake of ad...

The Rise of the API Product Manager

November 19, 2014 | By Mark O'Neill

Kevin focused on what it means to be "API first." He explained how it's different than "SOA first." In the world of SOA, the WSDL was the "contact," but not managed as a product. In "API first," the API is the "contract" but is also the product. Kevin quantified this in his "API first equation," which is:

                           "The API is the contract" + "APIs are a product" = "API first"

DaaS: Hear how Dun & Bradstreet uses APIs for Data-as-a-Service at our API Workshop in Boston on Nov 19

November 13, 2014 | By Mark O'Neill

For some companies, embracing the new digital world comes naturally. This is especially true of organizations where data is their main asset. Their business effectively becomes a platform, and they can deploy services to monetize that data to their clients. This is "Data-as-a-Service" (DaaS).

Dun and Bradstreet (D&B) is a great example of this trend. D&B has deployed the very successful ...

October 31, 2014 | By Axway Blog Team

This is a transcript of The Axway Podcast of the same name.

CHAUGHTAI: "Grey market" refers to legal goods which are sold outside the normal distribution channels. And they're done without having any relationship with the producer of that good directly.
