Getting Started with AMPLIFY

Overview

This guide provides links to set up an AMPLIFY account and to various AMPLIFY getting started guides.

AMPLIFY provides common services and a foundation full of capabilities for products to consume and build upon. In the diagram below, common services are defined as Foundation Services and Application Services build on top of this foundation. A Foundation Service implements a common capability that all or most products need to operate in context of AMPLIFY. An Application Service exposes a product capability as a service for consumption by products or users.

API Builder

Axway AMPLIFY API Builder accelerates building APIs with a low code/no-code approach supporting both API-first and data-first implementation patterns. API developers use the API Builder Console with a flow editor,  connectors, and predefined assets available in the marketplace to build and deploy APIs to runtime services via a command line interface. APIs are deployed as independent microservices enabling an elastic runtime that can scale based on demand.  Self-service deployment and monitoring for API Providers allows to scale by removing the dependency on a central team.

Axway AMPLIFY API Management

Axway AMPLIFY API Management is a hybrid API Lifecycle Management solution that enables the digital business value chain.  It provides, with API Builder, a low-code/no-code rapid API creation tool. API Manager delivers a governance layer to secure and manage the lifecycle of APIs, and API Portal provides a self-service developer portal to increase API adoption.  Embedded analytics increases business visibility with metrics to identify usage trends and abnormal situations. AMPLIFY API Management also includes the API Central Service, in a multi-tenant cloud deployment, that shortens the path to managing APIs and streamlines managing APIs across the ecosystem.
