Aeromexico chooses Akana for API-based digital transformation

Akana said that Aeromexico has selected Akana´s API management platform to enable its transformation into a digital enterprise.

By enabling secure and manageable application programming interfaces (APIs) for Aeromexico, Akana gives the airline the ability to be more agile in its IT operations while safely exposing multiple backend systems and data sources to partner firms.

Aeromexico employs APIs and Akana´s API Management to extend its digital ecosystem. APIs make it possible for Aeromexico to expand its mobile app program and make it possible for partners, such as hotel chains and cruise ship lines, to tap into Aeromexico´s systems in real time.

External developers will be able to create apps and websites that can access Aeromexico APIs. Akana´s solution lets Aeromexico create a controlled app developer community around its APIs. The Akana platform provides Aeromexico a way to manage the API traffic, authenticate and authorize API consumers, and monitor API performance and availability.
