CASE STUDY AXWAY IMPROVES SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT OPERATING MODEL CHALLENGES Axway is an enterprise integration company which provides solutions to manage, run, secure, and monitor business interactions. Its comprehensive portfolio includes managed file transfer, B2B integration, API management, secure content collaboration, and more. Due to complexities surrounding their solutions and constantly changing market demands, Axway needed to find a better way to track and manage development for their constantly growing backlog of product feature requests. After deciding to adopt Agile development methods and testing a wide range of planning and management solutions, Axway selected VersionOne. As a veteran of the software industry, Jorge Rodriguez, Axway's SVP of Product Development, was intimately familiar with the software development challenges associated with evolving market demands. Rodriguez explained, "Software GREATER VISIBILITY INTO RELEASE FORECASTING FASTER TIME TO MARKET FOR PRODUCT DELIVERY CONTINUOUS ALIGNMENT WITH MARKET NEEDS AGILE ADOPTION ACROSS DEPARTMENTS HIGHLIGHTS development is unpredictable, and the job of the software development organization is to put a model in place that manages inherent risk as tightly as possible" Axway's managed file transfer business was growing rapidly and development teams were held responsible for innovating to meet market demands while supporting existing customers. As the lead for Axway's product development team, Jorge had to guide his team on balancing new product development with existing product improvements. He soon recognized the need to adopt development practices that would provide his team with greater visibility into their product release forecasts, while mitigating risks associated with misaligned market demands and customer feature requests.
