It’s Thanksgiving, and This Year We’re Giving Thanks to APIs

November 24, 2015 | By Mark O'Neill

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...

It’s a Jungle Out There: How to Thrive in an API World

November 18, 2015 | By Mark O'Neill

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 Are Coming – Are We Ready?

November 12, 2015 | By Stephane Castellani

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...

November 9, 2015 | By Jeanine Banks

And with Back to the Future Day coinciding with Axway Connections 2015 recently, it seemed only appropriate to look at how...

Digital Journey Around the World

October 29, 2015 | By Mark O'Neill

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...

Journey to Digital in the Age of the Customer

October 21, 2015 | By Jean-Marc Lazzari

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...

Microservices: The Magic in the Middleware

October 12, 2015 | By Mark O'Neill

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...

Banking of the Future – What’s in Store?

October 5, 2015 | By Nitin Thukral

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:

Kardashians Exposed Again? This Time It’s for Their Technology

October 1, 2015 | By Mark O'Neill

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...

Whoever Said Technology and Sports Don’t Mix Clearly Had it Wrong

September 15, 2015 | By Mark O'Neill

Imagine sitting in the locker room after a football game, as you relive that winning touchdown catch. But instead of simply watching the game tape, imagine that you’re able to meticulously analyze your every move and track your distance and speed at any given moment in the game. With the Internet of Things, the previously impossible has become possible – and it couldn’t have come at a better time as the NFL season has just kicked off.

In a recent...

Microservices in the Digital Era

September 2, 2015 | By Mark O'Neill

When organizations make the choice to put a digital platform in place, a discussion on Microservices is never far behind. By putting a Microservices layer in place, an organization creates the springboard to launch into the digital future, whether that involves apps, rich Web clients, or IoT devices such as in-store beacons. Individual Microservices, or orchestrated groups of Microservices, serve as the foundation for this innovation. The data being passed to and from Microservices also...
