SYDNEY – July 22, 2015 — Axway (Euronext: AXW.PA), a market leader in governing the flow of data, and Versent, a provider of digital transformation, mobile, and B2B integration consulting and managed services, today announced their partnership to help financial service companies enable their digital business using Axway 5 Suite. Axway 5 Suite is Axway’s flagship portfolio of products that leverage proven technologies such as API Management, B2B Integration/EDI, MFT and Operational Intelligence (OI) to control, govern and optimize the flow of data across the company and beyond the edge of the enterprise. Versent will be offering Axway 5 Suite for API Management as one of its key offerings on a managed services platform to the Australian and New Zealand markets.
APIs have become the common standard for turning existing applications into digital assets; for adopting social, mobile, cloud, big data and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies; and for delivering new digital business initiatives. Financial services companies have used Axway 5 Suite for API Management to deliver real-time payments, improve the multi-channel customer experience, and deliver open APIs that are consumed by millions of companies and consumers on a daily basis.
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
“APIs are having a profound impact on the integration market as organizations look to adopt new integration methods over traditional approaches to enable their digital business initiatives to open new revenue channels and reduce costs,” said Mike Dayton, senior vice president global alliances and channels, Axway. “We look forward to working closely with our strategic partner Versent within Australia and beyond.”
Thor Essman, CEO of Versent believes that “A robust API is the beating heart of a truly digital platform. Integrated with security, automation and cloud, businesses can confidently take the lead in their digital journey.”
Axway and Versent are hosting an exclusive invite-only Digital Transformation breakfast seminar later this month in Melbourne for leading Australian businesses.
