Delivery Options

  • Licensed software

Business is made up of countless individual interactions that occur within customer experience (CX) networks spanning people and systems over the cloud and on mobile devices. Each interaction generates critical data that must be strategically and securely shared with others in the digital ecosystem. Axway Central Governance controls data flow and optimizes its value relative to the specific needs of the entities involved in the transaction, the data itself and the business goals it aims to achieve. 

Through a unified console, Axway Central Governance provides a consistent, persona-based user experience for governing data flows for enterprise integration, managed file transfer and B2B interactions. The result is centralized control and end-to-end visibility for data flows in the context of CX networks.

Axway Central Governance is available for use with Axway Transfer CFT v3.1 and higher, Axway SecureTransport 5.3.1 and higher and Axway Gateway 6.17.1 and higher.

Key Features & Benefits

Improve Business Agility with the Data Flow Repository

Axway Central Governance provides a centralized repository for managing the full lifecycle of end-to-end flow definitions that include business-application level and infrastructure level information.

This unique system of records of all internal and external file-based interactions is used to automatically generate a consistent parameter setup for the underlying Axway middleware involved in the execution of the data flows. 

 

Integration and interoperability with DevOps processes

  • Leverage a unique and centralized system of records of data flows and their participants to provide a consistent and always up-to-date view on all your file-based exchanges
  • Segregate responsibilities and ownership between organizational and application domains with fine-grained access control
  • Use Axway Central Governance REST APIs to integrate with existing ITSM solutions supporting DevOps processes and solutions

Out-of-the-box visibility and audit trails

Business-oriented monitoring and end-to-end control are available and adaptable for both business managers and IT staff through user-defined and out-of-the-box dashboards

  • Monitor and analyze components and data flows at each step of a process in fine-grained detail, including progress of large file transfers, space remaining on servers, and more with dashboards, alerts, reports and data flow analytics
  • Manage SLAs, speed problem resolution and improve responsiveness across lines of business by reducing dependence on IT
  • Improve quality of service and reduce costs over your entire data exchange environment by detecting and correcting data flow issues or malfunctions in real time, before they become critical 

 

Global identity management and access control

Use Axway Central Governance as a central control point for security enforcement across the entire infrastructure

  • Enforce consistent configuration of the middleware infrastructure with fine-grained and role-based policies
  • Define and enforce policies governing data flow lifecycle and access
  • Secure data flows using existing access and identity management systems to ensure compliance with corporate security policies and regulatory requirements
  • Manage user and partner identities, credentials and access rights
  • Ensure authentication, encryption and signature at the middleware node level, by centrally managing certificates’ lifecycle
  • Ensure compliance with regulations that require audit of transfers, security and access

Speed deployment, reduce costs and optimize IT resources

With Axway Central Governance, you can optimize usage of IT resources and infrastructure and minimize labor-intensive, break-and-fix procedures. Functionality includes:

  • Automatic discovery of Axway middleware components, which register themselves under the control of Axway Central Governance services
  • Centralized design and deployment of configurations for Axway middleware components including mass-processing features for highly distributed environments
  • Centralized day-to-day operation management, including starting and stopping components, viewing logs and monitoring data flows
  • Global management of user and partner identities, credentials and access rights, providing a central control point across the entire infrastructure
