Leveraging Enterprise Prowess and Scale for API Management
Los Angeles, CA. – August 28, 2012 – SOA Software, a leading provider of SOA governance, cloud and enterprise API management products, announced that its product solutions now handle more than 50,000,000,000 enterprise service transactions per year. Reaching this benchmark is reflective of the company’s scale of deployment in major production environments at global businesses.
“When you’re processing 50 billion business transactions a year, you know you are a core part of critical enterprise systems.” said Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President, SOA Software. “Our clients are relying on us to manage the governance of systems running huge volumes of enterprise transactions every day, across four continents.”
SOA is now Business Computing
Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is now the dominant mode of computing for most enterprises. A strong demand for governance, high availability and security has naturally followed the exceptional growth in SOA. SOA Software meets this need, with its products deployed at scale in mission-critical, production environments.
Enabling the API Economy
While SOA Software maintains a strong growth trajectory in enterprise SOA governance, the company is also pivoting on its experience and building its presence in the rapidly emerging API management sector. Enterprises are increasingly making business applications available as APIs in order to drive business growth and expose new revenue and partnership opportunities, and ultimately to improve business effectiveness. Open APIs allow external developers to build applications that leverage core business capabilities. Enterprise APIs are offered to a more limited group to enable more sensitive B2B or B2E (employee) applications. Both enterprise and open APIs are typically built on a foundation of enterprise SOA services. As such, they require robust governance.
The company now provides SOA Governance and API Management solutions for such customers as American Express, Allianz, Astra Zeneca, AXA Equitable, Bank of America, Coca Cola, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Credit Suisse, CVS, Delta, Disney, eBay, Ingram Micro, First Data Corp, Genzyme, Intel, JPMorgan Chase, Liberty Mutual, Merrill Lynch, Multichoice, Pfizer, Skandia, TELUS, Thomson Reuters, Transurban, UBS, Verizon and many others.
“API management is an extension of SOA Governance,” said Alistair Farquharson, CTO SOA Software. “Our customers are embracing this new mode of working with their partners and demanding the kind of rock-solid, high-volume API Management solution that they’ve come to expect with any service-oriented system.”
SOA Software leverages its engineering prowess, code-base “DNA” and experience with huge scale to offer Atmosphere, the highest performing, most comprehensive API management solution on the market today.
