American Express uses Solace technology to efficiently move real-time data throughout their globally-distributed business as part of mission-critical activities including credit and purchase authorizations, loyalty programs and more. Establishing a modern open data movement platform that supports open APIs, protocols and clouds also helps American Express bring to market the innovative services that leverage their existing assets, including core systems running on TPF Mainframes, to extend their competitive advantage in the rapidly evolving payment processing space. Their successful deployment of Solace message routers enabled them to replace large numbers of servers running IBM Websphere MQ, which has driven datacenter consolidation and cost savings.
