Three-Peat! Layer 7 Named a Gartner MQ Leader

Gartner/Layer 7Here at CA Layer 7, we’re thrilled to once again be recognized as a Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader. The recently-published Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Services Governance, August 2013 report takes into account capabilities in both SOA Governance and API Management. As such, it represents Gartner’s acknowledgement of the sea change APIs have created in enterprise architecture.

The document provides a valuable market survey, which covers Layer 7 along with many of the other vendors in this area. We believe Layer 7’s third straight Leader’s recognition reflects a longstanding commitment to both innovation and customer success.

We believe this report provides further evidence that there is a growing awareness of the central role APIs are now playing in enterprise architecture, while also highlighting the importance of supporting SOA Governance for large organizations. We are providing complimentary access to the Magic Quadrant here. Enjoy!

Layer 7 at the International SOA, Cloud + Service Technology Symposium

SOA, Cloud + Service Technology SymposiumThe International SOA, Cloud + Service Technology Symposium takes place next week in London and the track titles remind me how much SOA has changed in the last 10 years. Mobile and cloud use cases have revolutionized the way we architect, deploy and manage SOA infrastructures, resulting in forward-looking tracks such as “New Service-Orientation Practices & Models” and “Emerging Service Technology Innovation.”

For the Layer 7 perspective on these service technology trends, come see our presentations throughout the week. On Monday, I’ll be speaking about how traditional SOA technologies such as the enterprise service bus (ESB) need to adapt to an evolving IT landscape. On Tuesday, our CTO Scott Morrison will be giving a closing keynote about “The New Governance”.  Wednesday brings an API Management Workshop at the Canadian High Commission, hosted by Layer 7 along with our customer MoneySupermarket.com and analyst firm RedMonk.

Layer 7 is a Founding Partner at the Symposium and we’re excited to welcome a who’s who of analysts, vendors and enterprises to join in the conversation. These illustrious attendees have helped to define the industry and revolutionize enterprise IT – and I’m looking forward to insightful speakers and great networking opportunities. For a more intimate conversation, stop by our booth (#110) to see a demo or discuss your SOA, cloud, API or mobile use cases.

London has shown an incredible amount of enthusiasm for sporting events this summer, from the Olympics and Paralympics to the Tour de France, which was won by a Brit for the first time in its history. Let’s keep that excitement going – see you at the Symposium!
