Reply announced today that its companies Spike Reply, Live Reply and Glue Reply have been awarded in the EMEA category of the 2022 Partner of the Year Awards from Kong Inc., the cloud native API company. These awards recognize the partners that are driving innovation in the market using APIs, microservices, open source technology and more through Kong products. Winners were announced at Kong’s Partner Summit and Kong Summit 2022, the company’s fifth annual user conference.
Filippo Rizzante, CTO of Reply comments: “We are very pleased to receive this award, which confirms our expertise and technical competence of our teams to develop secure and innovative API management infrastructures and connectivity. Our solutions rely on automation and DevSecOps best practices to enable API governance, security, and auditing by making use of API configuration as code. Thus, an API-first strategy can shorten time-to-market and increase security. We support our customers in powering reliable digital connections across APIs, hybrid and multi-cloud environments and achieving their technological goals on a global scale.”
As businesses across industries overhaul the way they build and use software, their teams are tasked with working across legacy and modern environments. Kong’s inaugural Partner Awards highlight Kong ecosystem partners that help companies bridge this gap using tools including Kong Konnect, Kong Enterprise, Kong Gateway, Kuma and Insomnia. The accolade shines a light on the innovation that Kong’s partners are driving in the market to accelerate digital transformation and drive end-to-end connectivity through modern microservices-driven architectures. The winners were selected based on their commitment to the partnership and the results driven over the past year.
“The winners of these awards symbolize the strength of Kong’s partner ecosystem,“ says Kristian Györkös, Kong’s Vice President of Alliances. “It’s inspiring to see how these partners are leveraging Kong technology to tackle some of today’s most pressing business problems and to drive customer success even in uncertain times.”
