Conducted by Ovum, the study1 found that 75 percent of organizations are planning to invest in IT infrastructure modernization projects to meet skyrocketing customer and partner expectations and to ensure compliance with increasingly complex regulatory mandates.  “Digitalization and the need for greater agility call for a holistic approach to  integration to improve adaptability to new business models,” said Saurabh Sharma, senior analyst, Ovum. “Vendors such as Axway with deep domain knowledge in a breadth of integration patterns are at the forefront of helping organizations adopt a new approach vital for succeeding in the digital era.” Despite many digital business initiatives companies have been undertaking in recent years to achieve what Axway calls “omnipresence” – the ability to rapidly deliver delightful digital experiences connected to any data, on any device, at any time – the survey reveals: ·        the majority of organizations (57 percent) are relying on B2B integration gateways that are more than five years old, often lacking API Management, to support new digital business initiatives, ·        77 percent of respondents noted that the risk of B2B transaction failures could have critical business consequences, including service level agreement violations, ·        71 percent find that compliance issues are a significant challenge, and ·        67 percent consider revenue loss as the leading risk of not meeting the above issues.   In addition, 64 percent of organizations are currently using or planning to use APIs within two to three years to address the integration challenges presented by traditional approaches and to improve the customer experience. The study evaluated the IT and business challenges associated with traditional solutions such as EDI to determine the importance of adopting APIs. More than 50 percent of respondents noted a lack of end-to-end visibility, non-compliance with data security regulations and limited integration with backend systems as potential issues. “Organizations understand that the transition to digital is a business imperative,” said Jeanine Banks, executive vice president, global products and solutions, Axway. “While the ‘why’ is well-understood, the ‘how’ of a digital transformation journey is not as clear. As Ovum found, however, by starting with a more modern and integrated approach to B2B infrastructure, including the use of EDI and APIs, organizations can capitalize on the benefits of generating new revenue streams by connecting with customers and partners in new ways, while still ensuring security and compliance.” Download the infographic, here.

It provides a central access point, security layer, and a mode to support future growth and prevent service disruptions. Using Web services, the solution also connects to Rossmann product information and accesses the latest offers and promotions to compare data within the customer database.
