SEEBURGER cited in Gartner report Master B2B Ecosystem with a blended EDI and API approach

Hybrid Integration Platform for B2B, API and MFT enables digital business According to Gartner, APIs and API management complement, rather than replace traditional B2B technologies such as EDI and MFT. Application leaders should leverage their legacy B2B skills while taking advantage of new API capabilities to optimize their business ecosystem for digital business. Gartner also advised: A number of different integration technologies can be used to deliver B2B APIs, including iPaaS, B2B gateways or API gateways. These products maybe used individually (the traditional approach) or together in a more modern configuration as part of a hybrid integration platform (HIP). A HIP is a capability framework that combines on-premises and cloud-based integration and governance capabilities to support a wide range of integration use cases i).
