Through webMethods, we’re helping companies to overcome those challenges so that they can focus on innovation and great customer experiences.”
The latest updates to webMethods include the following new capabilities:
- webMethods DataHub: With the new webMethods DataHub, users can now access near real-time data insights using analytics, to make live business decisions. Users not only reduce their time to access data, but they can also do so through their choice of leading industry BI tools such as Microsoft Power BI, Tableau and others. This new offering will eliminate batch downloading and serve up data faster without involving complex IT approvals and coding.
- webMethods.io MFT: As part of the multi-function iPaaS, Software AG is now adding MFT capabilities to current integration, B2B, API and IoT capabilities to webMethods.io. With the addition of cloud MFT for internal and B2B file transfers, Software AG continues to enhance its industry leading iPaaS.
- webMethods developer portal: A new lightweight, embeddable portal that is fully API-enabled makes it easy to create an API marketplace for developers that is branded with a company’s look and feel.

- Connector Development ecosystem: With the new Connector Development Program, ISVs, OEM partners, resellers and customers can partner with Software AG to build, test, certify and publish connectors to webMethods.io. This makes more connectors and integrations available on-demand for webMethods.io users, speeding up the integration process without extra burden on internal teams. The Connector Development ecosystem enhances already available, hundreds of Software AG connectors and recipes.
