Solution Helps Companies of all Sizes Extend Application Investment with a Secure Cloud Connection for Greater Scale and Agility
ATLANTA, October 31, 2017 — Liaison Technologies, a recognized leader in cloud-based integration and data management solutions, today announced that the company has embedded core capabilities from its industry-leading ECS technologies, part of the company’s powerful behind-the-firewall integration solution suite, into ALLOY Edge, Liaison’s on-premises cloud-connector. Liaison now offers companies of all sizes a secure bridge to the cloud for future growth and access to Liaison’s award-winning, inherently compliant ALLOY™ Platform.
Liaison will deliver ALLOY Edge to the SMB market via its Value-Added Reseller (VAR) Community. Liaison and its VAR community are working together to provide a way for small and mid-sized companies with on-premises and cloud applications to meet data integration challenges in a business ecosystem. Liaison’s ECS functionality has played a key role in delivering integration capabilities, which are increasingly critical to business success for organizations across all industries. ALLOY Edge now meets those same needs today while providing access to Liaison’s groundbreaking ALLOY™ Platform to future-proof data integration and management operations.
ALLOY Edge allows organizations to handle progressively complex integration needs, move applications to the cloud, or extend existing data cleansing and data management capabilities as the need arises. That’s why ALLOY Edge has become the preferred cloud connector for companies with on-premises applications — it meets current needs while quickly expanding data integration and data management capabilities so companies can remain competitive.
As business leaders recognize the growing importance of data in company success, they are looking to bridge gaps in their data-handling capabilities. Liaison recently developed a study in partnership with the Aberdeen Group that revealed that 84% of enterprises will replace integration middleware over the next four years to achieve digital transformation. This shift is occurring at the large, mid-size and small business levels, and Liaison has invested in helping companies connect to the cloud while extending the value of their on-premises solution investments.
VARs are a key partner in the transformation process for the small to mid-sized company market. By providing ECS and mapping solutions to these companies, VARs provide the capabilities smaller companies need to compete effectively. Now, by embracing ALLOY Edge, VARs are providing their customers with more advanced cloud capabilities, including access to Liaison’s ALLOY Platform, ensuring that they can remain competitive in an evolving market.
“Liaison’s efforts with ALLOY have served to provide a white glove, top-notch service to support Cloud computing with a unified platform for integration and data management and end-to-end data security and privacy compliance,” said David McAlister of Aurora EDI Alliance, a Liaison VAR partner. Aurora is a group of U.S. EDI solution providers specializing in the implementation and maintenance of electronic data interchange (EDI) services and solutions in a variety of industries.
“As a trusted partner, our Value-Added Resellers help companies maximize the value of their data and move toward the cloud,” said Alice Westerfield, Senior Vice President of Strategic Alliances at Liaison. “Now that Liaison has embedded its traditional ECS feature set in ALLOY Edge, VARs can help customers take the next step and future proof their businesses so that they can manage even more complex data functions and achieve digital transformation.”
ALLOY Edge allows customers to view data via the ALLOY Platform, providing greater transparency and delivering insight from data transactions via a variety of sources. By using ALLOY Edge as an on-premises device that enables secure cloud connection to the ALLOY Platform, customers can integrate in-house data repositories, operate with greater agility and move more quickly toward a data-inspired future.
