3 steps to take now to future-proof your managed file transfer operations

Future-enabling your managed file transfer means receiving fresh insights into changing MFT strategies and practices as the technology evolves and new opportunities emerge. Because you're already an Axway customer, we make it part of our business to keep you posted on other products and services that will enhance or complement the Axway solution you're using now — whether it's MFT, B2B integration, or API management. It's just one of the advantages of being an Axway insider. 

The fact is, MFT has never had a more important role than in today's digital business infrastructure. It not only has to coexist with your API strategy, but also leverage APIs to securely move growing volumes of financial data files, scientific and research files, industry files such as CAD, and much more. What proactive steps can you take to create a sustainable MFT infrastructure? The following inside information highlights three of them. 

01 Prepare for growing integration patterns

The integration ecosystem is growing. Data is diverse, and data is currency. You need to have a cohesive way to bring together file transfers and APIs within your digital infrastructure. This helps you modernize your MFT operations. You can leverage APIs to configure and provision file transfers as well as integrate applications into your IT infrastructure.

02 Empower a better user experience

One of the most power efficiency levers available for your MFT operations is a good user experience for stakeholders. When people feel empowered, businesses save time and costs; they also secure the power of their infrastructure. This becomes all the more important in the context of the Great Resignation. Like other businesses, you may have suffered from a lack of technical resources and expertise. This level of efficiency helps you close these gaps.

03 Enable proactive data security measures

If your business and IT teams have been engaged in MFT for a while, they shouldn't have to wait for security teams to engage with them. Consider taking a proactive approach that is mindful of new security controls and architectures that will be critical to your future MFT operations. This presents a real opportunity for you to subscribe with the right SLAs, offer the right certification levels, and deliver on the Zero Trust standard.
