Microsoft and Akana
Microsoft and Akana
Akana has a long history partnering with Microsoft to deliver world-class API management solutions for enterprise customers. Built from the ground up using native Microsoft technology, Akana’s solutions for Microsoft combine the best of Microsoft’s cloud and enterprise offerings with the best API and SOA management solution in the industry.
Because Akana’s solutions run in on-premise Microsoft-based enterprise environments, and in the Microsoft Azure cloud, or in hybrid scenarios, Microsoft customers have all the tools they need in their goal of using APIs to realize digital business transformation.
Microsoft Azure Cloud Integration
The Microsoft Azure cloud is revolutionizing the way Microsoft customers rollout new IT initiatives. APIs provide the key integration pattern for ensuring that cloud components work together to realize mobile and cloud applications. Akana’s Cloud Integration Gateway leverages native Microsoft Azure features to ensure that Azure services, SaaS applications, and on-premise Microsoft-based enterprise data can all be unified and managed in a single pane of glass in the Azure cloud.
Azure-Enabled Hybrid Cloud
A huge amount of data and value is stored in on-premise Microsoft-based enterprise environments. The challenge is safely and securely sharing that data with resources in the Azure cloud. Akana’s API Gateway in conjunction with Microsoft Azure Service Bus can ensure that enterprise data in on-premise environments including BizTalk Server, WCF, NET.TCP, WebAPI, and SQL Server, can all be securely shared with the Azure cloud. And best of all, it requires no coding, no infrastructure, and no network changes within these existing systems.
Enterprise API Management
On-premise enterprise Microsoft environments benefit from API management every bit as much as the Microsoft Azure cloud. Akana’s API management solution for Microsoft runs natively on Windows Server in on-premise environments to ensure that an entire Microsoft-based enterprise environment can be fully managed. With native support for Windows Server and Windows security, internal application integration initiatives, business partner integration initiatives, and hybrid cloud initiatives are all quickly achievable with the Akana API management solution for Microsoft.
Akana Lifecycle Manager together with its built-in support for Microsoft Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server helps you to define your API strategy, then build and run your APIs according to your business goals. With fully automated, end to end service lifecycle management in place, Microsoft customers can easily and consistently plan, build, run, and share all of their APIs within a community of developers, architects and IT managers.
