Axway Amplify Central: A Multi-vendor, Multi-protocol Services Platform Offering a Unified Catalog
Peter Oosterlynck, IT Solutions Architect, Axway
In this video Peter Oosterlynck, senior API Management expert at Axway, will present a very brief overview of the Axway Amplify API Management solution suite. After that he will spent the majority of the session on the latest additions to the Amplify platform with a focus on the Amplify Unified Catalogue/MarketPlace. More and more (large) organizations have made a large set of APIs available for internal and external usage. Often, they delivered the APIs using several different API Gateways (Amazon, Axway, Azure, Google Apigee, SalesForce MuleSoft, etc). The next key challenge is re-use of the APIs made available by as many as possible API consumers. An API Portal connected to all different API Gateways in use and automatically showing all APIs to interested consumers is needed to improve re-use. The Axway Amplify Unified Catalogue is the only multi-vendor API gateway currently offered by one of the leading gateway vendors and shows the unique, independent position of Axway in this market. Make sure you attend this break out session if you want to learn more about this unique offering!
