PHOENIX  – April 22, 2015Axway (Euronext: AXW.PA), a market leader in governing the flow of data, today announced it has again been named a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance, based on its ability to execute and completeness of vision. Axway has held this position since the inception of the Application Services Governance Magic Quadrant in 2013.

Axway, with the acquisition of leading Application Programming Interface (API) management vendor, Vordel, in 2012, started a wave of API management market consolidation as APIs have become fundamental enabling technologies for digital business. Axway 5 Suite, which features Axway API Management as a foundational element, has been implemented by thousands of companies across a broad range of digital business initiatives and features integrated API Management, B2B/EDI, and MFT capabilities.

According to Gartner analyst Paolo Malinverno, “Digital business will disrupt all industries, and, therefore, it will drive radical changes in the applications that companies run to operate, stay relevant and prosper in the industries they belong to (or even across them). APIs are at the core of enabling application transformation for digital business, giving access to functionality and data in your current applications to the new digital business applications.”¹

Axway 5 Suite for API Management is an enterprise-grade API management and security platform for all types of APIs. Fortune 500 enterprises and government agencies around the world rely on Axway to achieve standardized API delivery to ensure the security, performance, and high availability of their mission-critical applications. APIs increasingly play a central role as companies continue to invest in the Internet of Things (IoT), mobile applications, big data, cloud computing and social collaboration.

“API Management is having a profound impact on the integration market, driven not only by organizations looking to enable digital business initiatives, but also as enterprises look to adopt new and innovative integration methods over more traditional approaches,” said Dean Hidalgo, executive vice president, global marketing, Axway. “In today’s digital environment, progressive enterprises understand that an API-centric approach is essential to solving integration challenges in internal, external, mobile, IoT and cloud environments. We believe Axway is a visionary in this regard, and we feel having again been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance is a testament to our continued contribution to digital business worldwide.”
