Axway AMPLIFY™ API Management

Explore full specs, features and benefits

Across industries, disruptive competitors, new regulations and rising customer expectations are driving digital transformation. APIs are at the heart of digital interactions that will fuel this transformation by quickly connecting internal systems with new experiences that engage customers in dynamic and relevant ways.

The solution that meets today’s requirements must manage the full lifecycle of API usage and provide a complete end-to-end set of services that simplify access to enterprise data, integrate with full API lifecycle support, and streamline app building to speed delivery of value to the business.

API Management

AMPLIFY API Management combines full API lifecycle management, a secure integration foundation, and monitoring and analytics to help you innovate faster and heighten ecosystem engagement. It is part of the Axway AMPLIFY™ hybrid integration and customer engagement platform that provides a complete solution for the rapid change and innovation your business envisions and your customers expect.

Key features and benefits

API lifecycle management

Streamlines the management of the people and processes of the API lifecycle central to delivering digital value through the deployment, improvement and operations of digital initiatives.

    • Use the graphical API Builder to create and orchestrate microservice based APIs
    • API Builder also enables real-time orchestration of API calls to facilitate creation and increase performance of composite APIs
    • Establish policies to promote conversion, operational stability, authorization and security
    • Create and manage an API catalog for easy API search and discovery, and to support all API lifecycle stages, from registration through retirement
    • Support DevOps to enable collaborative development of policies, automated continuous integration and promotion, deployment to staged environments, and continuous testing — with zero downtime for delivery and upgrades
    • Adapt to business seasonality and unpredictable demand with an Elastic Topology deployment that can scale up or down depending on business need without compromising back-end system protection
    • Take a best-practice API-first approach that leverages popular API design formats such as Swagger and RAML and provides APIs to enable customers to adapt and customize the API management process
    • Provide a developer portal to boost adoption by making it easy for developers to join an API community and discover, consume, build and test APIs

    Data drives relevancy, personalization, convenience and speed — the hallmarks of a good digital experience. The explosion in the quantity and sources of available data provides ripe opportunities when you can access, integrate and secure it with ease and speed.

    A secure integration foundation frees the data and services trapped in back-office silos with the security you expect in an enterprise solution.

    • Integration policy filters and prebuilt connectors and adapters simplify and speed integration
    • A Visual Mapper with a graphical Data Map Editor and map engine simplifies data format transformation
    • Microservices support offers a clear separation layer between the developer-facing APIs and internal systems, and simplifies code maintenance, reduces development effort and enables parts of an application to be scaled separately
    • Identity management simplifies integrating with existing identity access management systems and provides for identity mediation, federation and audit
    • Data security options dramatically reduce the time to implement a high level of security designed to avoid breaches
    • REST-enabled digital MFT/B2B/ EDI functionality is preintegrated with API Management, simplifying enterprise-wide use of existing information and tools for new business uses
    • Analytics and monitoring provide the ability to measure and monitor success with visibility across the digital business value chain
    • Real-time operational monitoring provides visibility to topology status, API activity tracking and performance monitoring
    • Developer metrics show API consumer adoption trends and API usage metrics that are important to understanding API program business success
    • Integration with Axway Decision Insight enables predictive embedded analytics in the API management tools for proactive identification of abnormal situations and key operational insight for decision-making
