Axway (NYSE Euronext: AXW.PA), a market leader in governing the flow of data, today announced it has finalised the acquisition of Systar, a leading provider of operational performance management software.
Axway's leadership in governing the flow of data, combined with Systar's leadership in Business Activity Monitoring delivers true operational intelligence through real-time views into data flows giving decision makers critical information to optimise operational performance. This synergy of technologies will enable businesses to gain clear visibility into their transactional data flows, within the relevant business context, across their entire data flow ecosystem increasing the business value of Axway 5 Suite to its customers.
"With the acquisition of Systar, Axway strengthens its data flow governance capabilities, closing the loop between IT data-flow efficiency and business performance", said Christophe Fabre, CEO, Axway. "This compelling combination will provide businesses with a new level of data flow governance that is critical to thriving in the digital economy. "
In today's complex IT infrastructures, each business process or activity relies on many disparate, yet connected, applications. Massive volumes of data flow inside and across the edge of the enterprise from internal applications to partner communities, between people or systems, on-premise, in the cloud or via mobile devices. Together, Axway's data-flow-centric approach and Systar's business-activity-centric approach combine to cover a broader spectrum of Operational Intelligence, directly linking data flow governance with business performance and capacity management, enabling IT and line of business to identify potential issues and take corrective action to jointly deliver superior business execution.
According to Gartner's¹ technology research and market insights, "the integration vendors that lack analytical capabilities and analytics vendors lacking ability to integrate data sources will become the market-trailing legacy, while the leading integration and analytics providers will increasingly be the same vendors and will support both types of projects." Axway and Systar synergies will enable customers to grow their business activities, optimise costs, assure compliance and improve operational efficiency.
