B2B Cloud Integration — Future-Proofing Operations with Axway Managed Cloud Services
When IT leaders consider the future of their B2B transactions, cloud integration is top of mind. 48% of IT decision makers said in 2021 that 50% of their applications would migrate to the cloud in the coming years.
The incentives behind the focus on B2B cloud integration are clear. Organizations not only want to curb costs and enhance the security of their B2B transactions, but they also want to have the flexibility to scale their infrastructure as business demands evolve. So while improving their service delivery in the present, they can confidently modernize their infrastructure to support even more secure B2B transactions in the future.
But that’s not to say there aren’t challenges to address on the way to B2B integration. It’s not uncommon for organizations to lack the in-house expertise to support B2B cloud adoption. This scenario has become more prevalent amid The Great Resignation, with accelerated retirement plans for B2B/EDI practitioners. All the while, increasingly complex security and compliance requirements have only made B2B cloud migration more challenging to manage, with cyber threats exposing potential room for vulnerabilities.
With these challenges in mind, many lead IT decision-makers have started to search for external cloud solutions to support their B2B operations. At Axway, we’re proud to offer outsourced B2B integration capabilities through our Managed Cloud Services that help mitigate business risks and improve B2B service levels for our customers in an easier, more cost-effective manner.

We deliver 24/7 monitoring and support, 365 days a year, to help organizations smoothly transition to a cloud subscription model and maintain security and compliance even in the largest, most complex environments.
