Axway Appoints Former IBM and GXS Executives to Bolster its Leadership Team for U.S. and Latin America

In support of its continued growth, Axway (NYSE Euronext: AXW.PA), a market leader in governing the flow of data, announced today it has added two new members to its leadership team for sales and business development. Pat Ryan, formerly of IBM, has joined Axway as Senior Vice President, North America Sales; Marcelo Ramos, formerly of GXS, has taken the role of Senior Vice President, Latin America. In their roles, Ryan and Ramos will help Axway meet the growing global demand for the Axway 5 Suite, the industry’s only solution that helps organizations govern the flow of data across enterprise, cloud and mobile environments.

“Our goal is to continue to grow the organization and give customers the solutions they have come to trust and rely on to govern data flows and remain competitive in their respective markets,” said Christophe Fabre, CEO, Axway. “Pat Ryan and Marcelo Ramos bring strong leadership experience and have expertise in growing brands and pipelines in their respective market segments which will help drive widespread adoption of the Axway 5 Suite, and cement our position as a global leader in governing the flow of data.”

Pat Ryan joins Axway with more than 30 years’ experience leading global sales teams, most recently as the Director, Worldwide Sales for IBM's business solutions portfolio. In this role he demonstrated outstanding leadership driving the sales portfolio, and was selected as “Best in IBM,” an award given to the top 500 most performant people. Prior to IBM, Ryan held sales leadership positions at companies including WorldTalk Corporation, NetFrame Systems and Wang Laboratories with involvement in global sales, marketing and global operations. In his new role, Ryan will be responsible for overseeing Axway’s North American sales organization. His primary goal will be driving sales productivity and customer satisfaction for the Axway 5 Suite, in alignment with the company’s mission to help organizations govern the flow of data.

Marcelo Ramos has a proven track record managing IT software organizations in Latin America and brings to Axway more than 28 years’ experience in developing strong customer and partner relationships, building and retaining high performance teams, increasing market share, and growing revenues with the highest performance. Most recently Ramos served as the Vice President and General Manager, LATAM for Opentext/GXS, and prior to that he held leadership roles at IBM/Sterling Commerce, where he was able to drive long-term win-win agreements with Fortune 500 global corporations doing business in the Latin American region. In his new position, Ramos will lead Axway’s Latin American organization to drive awareness, growth, sales productivity and customer satisfaction for Axway 5 Suite in the region in alignment with the company’s mission.

The appointments build on Axway’s significant growth and momentum, which includes industry-first innovations and strong global growth. In 2013, Axway introduced the Axway 5 Suite, which uniquely combines application integration with B2B, MFT, and Enterprise API Management. In its latest yearly financial results, Axway recorded strong results with €237.5 million in revenue.

Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds. Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers – thous...
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
