Vordel’s New API Server Chosen by Government and Manufacturing Customers
Ahead of Competition
Vordel API Server Beats Out Competitive Vendors: Customers Choose Vordel for
Ease-of-Use, Elastic API Deployment and Range of Enterprise Connectors
BOSTON, Mass. -- July 25, 2012
Vordel, the API Server provider that connects business, mobile and cloud,
today announced new competitive wins for the recently announced Vordel API
Server, a unified platform for API management. These new customers in the U.S.
federal government and European large scale manufacturing sector selected the
Vordel API Server due to its ability to quickly scale an API deployment in an
elastic fashion, its overall ease-of-use and its API-based integration with
other products including SAP, Oracle, and CA SiteMinder among others.
Launched in June 2012, the Vordel API Server is an enterprise-ready, unified
platform to manage, deliver and secure APIs to cloud and mobile channels. It
encapsulates capabilities from Vordel’s application gateway, cloud services
broker, and API management technologies into a unified API operating platform.
One commonality in the recent customer wins is how diverse organizations
ranging from manufacturing to government are using the Vordel API Server for
managing mission critical logistical systems. These customers are either using
Vordel as part of a SAP system or using it with their own supply chain, with
integration across global locations.
For example, a Vordel customer responsible for managing SAP deployments for a
U.S. government organization required the ability to manage the transfer of
data between Oracle and SAP systems, while also conforming to policies in CA
SiteMinder. This organization chose the Vordel API Server because of its
demonstrated API-based integration with SAP, Oracle, and CA Systems, and its
ability to handle highly sensitive and time-critical procurement and tracking
Another Vordel customer, a manufacturing business required the ability to
manage its global logistics supply chain across multiple geographies including
Brazil, Europe, and Hong Kong, as well as through diverse systems including
IBM WebSphere MQ and Microsoft Active Directory. The manufacturing business
selected the Vordel API server for its API-based integration with the IBM and
Microsoft systems it used, as well as its clear ease-of-use advantages
compared to the competition.
