iWay Software Positioned in the "Visionaries" Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools

Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2011) - 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, October 27, 2011.)

According to the authors of the report, "Data integration is a critical component of an overall enterprise information management (EIM) and information infrastructure strategy. 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. Data integration capabilities are increasingly relied on to enable 'frictionless' sharing of data across all organizational and system boundaries, and to support a consistent and complete view of data."

iWay Software addresses these changing market pressures and provides customers with the data management capabilities needed to meet today's market demands with its full suite of enterprise integration solutions, including:

  • The iWay Enterprise Information Management Suite: The solution facilitates real-time management of information from anywhere across the enterprise. Regardless of where data resides and whether it is in structured or unstructured format, the iWay EIM suite enables seamless integration so that business users can easily transform the data into relevant, timely intelligence.

  • The iWay Business Process Automation Suite: A powerful and complete business process automation (BPA) solution built on the iWay 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.

In addition, iWay Software recently updated its integration tools to enhance its real-time data cleansing to big data sources. With the enhanced offering, users are better able to cleanse big data and avoid quality issues that can arise with inaccurate or mismanaged information. With full integration support for both smartphones and tablets, the upgrades offer a complete big data solution for business users in the office or on the road.

"Recent shifts in today's market landscape necessitate that enterprises not only improve their information management strategies, but also ensure that their information is truly working for them and delivering the insight needed to succeed in 2012," said Gregory Dorman, general manager of iWay Software. "Our positioning in the 'Visionaries' quadrant by Gartner is a testament to our continued dedication to drive the product evolution and innovation that best serves our customers in today's increasingly competitive business environment."
