Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
iWay Software, an Information Builders company and an innovator of enterprise integration solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Visionaries" quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools." (Gartner "Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools," by Ted Friedman, Mark A. Beyer, Eric Thoo, November 19, 2010.)
According to the authors of the report, "Contemporary pressures are leading to an increased investment in data integration in all industries and geographic regions. Business drivers, such as the imperative for speed to market, the agility to change business processes and models, and the desire to detect and harness patterns and capture events are forcing organizations to manage their data assets differently. Simplification of processes and the IT infrastructure is necessary to achieve transparency, and transparency requires a consistent and complete view of the data, which represents the performance and operation of the business. Data integration is a critical component of an overall enterprise information management (EIM) strategy and information infrastructure that can address these data-oriented issues."
iWay Software responds to this market demand by offering a full suite of enterprise integration solutions including:
- The iWay Enterprise Information Management Suite: Facilitates real-time management of any information from anywhere across the entire enterprise. Regardless of where data resides, whether it's in structured or unstructured format, the iWay EIM suite can seamlessly integrate, enrich, and transform it into relevant, timely intelligence.
- The iWay Business Process Automation Suite: A powerful and complete business process automation (BPA) solution built on theiWay Universal Adapter Framework and the iWay Integration Engine, this single, fully integrated platform delivers all the capabilities needed to automate key activities across the enterprise, while accelerating return on investment and minimizing total cost of ownership.
- The iWay Business-to-Business Suite: A robust business-to-business (B2B) and managed file transfer (MFT) gateway that enables rapid, effective management of trading partner and related activities. Unlike limited point-to-point solutions, the iWay B2B suite is a comprehensive infrastructure that dramatically improves the way partner transactions -- as well as those performed over external exchanges -- are planned, executed, and tracked.
"Enterprises everywhere are rethinking their data infrastructure, and focusing on how to not only manage information but make it really work for them in 2011," said Dave Watson, chief operating officer, iWay Software. "We believe our positioning in the 'Visionaries' quadrant by Gartner confirms our mission to make enterprise integration the foundation of any solid information management strategy. We will continue to invest in new product development to help enterprises leverage their existing data to their competitive advantage."
