Bolloré Logistics Relies on Axway 5 Suite for Strategic Business Growth

Looking for strategic support in a period of strong business growth, Bolloré Logistics, one of the top five transport and logistic organizations in Europe, selected Axway (NYSE Euronext:AXW.PA), a market leader in governing the flow of data, to manage, control and secure the substantial increase in data exchange and new customer protocols. The Axway Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution, a part of the Axway 5 Suite, offers Bolloré Logistics the foundation for a comprehensive MFT governance strategy with a reliable and flexible solution enabling secure, auditable and easy to manage data exchange across multiple sites.

With 11,000 employees across 99 countries and 600 offices, Bolloré Logistics produces more than 30,000 internal and external messages on a daily basis. Having its customers, partners and employees spread out geographically, the company is operating in a very heterogeneous environment. Bolloré Logistics’ business relies on interoperability between systems and data transfers. When interacting with employees and customers, it is crucial that Bolloré Logistics’ data transfer files arrive at their destination as scheduled, to ensure that business processes relating to everything from human resources and payroll, to customer facing shipment statuses, are not negatively impacted.

Using Axway MFT, a secure multi-platform solution, Bolloré Logistics transformed its network file transfer strategy into an infrastructure pillar, including Axway Sentinel for data flow analytics and real-time visibility, and Axway Gateway for efficiency and control across the infrastructure.

Bolloré Logistics depends on the Axway 5 Suite to provide interoperability between its IT systems and the best possible service for its customers. Its Transport Management System, Warehouse Management System and Track and Trace System are all interfaced to Axway MFT.

With a rapidly growing customer base, Bolloré Logistics needed to be able to quickly adapt to its customers’ different protocols. The Axway MFT solution manages data transport for interactive enterprise application integration. If a customer automatically issues invoices upon delivery of a product, the delivery notice will instantly trigger customer invoicing.

“Since 2012 we have been managing 9.5 million data transfers a year. If files do not arrive at their destinations on time, either a storage order or warehouse delivery, there could be a negative impact on our business. A lot of critical data flows through our business from scheduling delivery to processing payment, but we know we can count on Axway 5 Suite to get the job done,” said Emeric de Saint Roman, Technical Skill Unit Director at Bolloré Logistics.

“The integration between systems and protocols and the reliability of data transfers are essential for any business, but especially crucial when managing logistics for such a huge number of customers across many different countries. Bolloré has selected Axway solutions to act as its data air traffic controller, managing data transfer and maintaining business efficiency in this heavy growth period,” said Robert Meyer, VP Solutions, Vertical Marketing and Management at Axway.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business.
