Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. | August 18, 2022
Zayo Group Holdings, Inc., a leading global communications infrastructure platform, today announced the launch of its Application Programming Interface (API) Developer Portal, providing customers with a single online platform to explore, on-board and test live environments with existing API offerings, and stay informed about upcoming developments.
One of the biggest challenges enterprises face when working with multiple vendors is siloed information and data. With Zayo’s API Developer Portal, customers now have a centralized, well-organized, easily navigable repository of information about automating business processes with Zayo.
“We want to empower our customers through every step of their digital transformation journey, and APIs are where that journey comes to life in the form of automation at our customers' fingertips. “With our developer portal, customers now have a live environment where they can easily find the information they need to understand, design and build the best software integration strategy to make an impact and drive business results.”
Leidy Perez, vice president of product, strategic software at Zayo
Currently, Zayo receives hundreds of thousands API calls a month originating from 100+ customers. These requests come through key partners such as Connectbase, ACS Solutions, GeoTel, Upstack, NDA Corp, Masterstream and LMX as well as direct integrations. Benefits of Zayo’s existing API offerings include:
Network Discovery: Zayo’s Building Validation, Location, and Cloud Service Provider APIs enable customers to analyze how Zayo’s network availability powers their business footprint.
Quote and Order: Customers can grow their business capabilities by leveraging Zayo products in its Product Catalog API, generating quotes with the Quote API, and automating the ordering process through the Order API.
Service Management: Customers are able to retrieve critical service information, get support for issues, and keep track of planned outages with the Service Inventory, Ticketing, Ticket Catalog and Maintenance Cases APIs.
In addition to the API developer portal, Zayo has started the roll out of MEF API “Lifecycle Service Orchestration” (LSO) Sonata “Billie” release for quoting and ordering as well as performance monitoring. Further incorporation of MEF standards will enable Zayo to better serve its global carrier and enterprise customers to buy services in a standardized way and to automate MEF 3.0 Carrier Ethernet.
“Too often, customers must work around their system of record to manage multiple vendors. The swivel-chair of that information back into each system of record causes massive inefficiencies that can impact service delivery time and revenue,” said Stan Hubbard, MEF Principal Analyst. “MEF LSO APIs offer an automated, standardized way for service providers to buy and sell services and maximize return on their investment in interface development. We are excited that MEF LSO Sonata APIs enable Zayo’s innovative API Developer Portal.”

H2O.ai | June 16, 2022
H2O.ai showcased a unique set of capabilities and use cases that enable rich insights by seamlessly connecting data and machine learning.
Snowflake and H2O.ai bring together platforms for data and machine learning to help more clients develop with AI through a native connection that gives users access to H2O.ai's powerful machine learning capabilities straight from their Snowflake environment. Through several pre-built connections, customers may simply access the machine learning capabilities of H2O.ai from within the Snowflake Data Cloud for near real-time analysis. This shortens learning cycles, decreases processing time dramatically, assures that predictions are based on the most recent data, and makes these predictions accessible to any application built on top of Snowflake.
Customers such as Infutor utilized the H2O.ai combination with Snowflake powered by Snowpark and Java User-Defined Functions (UDF) to avoid the need for additional platforms and AI-related expenses.
"H2O.ai reduced our AI inference costs on Snowflake by 55X. H2O.ai partnership and support has made the integration that much more seamless and easy to leverage."
Gary Walter, CEO of Infutor, a Verisk business
H2O.ai is extending its partnership and dedication to Snowflake users in a number of vocations and sectors, including:
Tarik Dwiek, Head of Technology Alliances at Snowflake, said, “Our partnership with H2O.ai can help optimize the supply chain across multiple industries including manufacturing, telecom, banking and retail. With H2O AutoML, users have the ability to make, operate, and innovate for their customers and partners to reduce risks, improve customer experiences, drive growth, and improve efficiency.”
Sri Ambati, CEO and founder, H2O.ai, said, “H2O AI Cloud is democratizing AI on Snowflake’s Data Cloud helping our customers personalize their offerings and bring efficient flows into their business. The tight-knit multi-cloud integration of H2O AI engines and AI App Stores drives consumption on Snowflake Data Cloud reducing costs for customers and powers organization-wide transformation needed to adapt quickly.”
Apiiro | June 06, 2022
The Apiiro Partner Program, which provides complete support for technical, consulting, and reseller partners across the Cloud-Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) ecosystem, was introduced today by Apiiro, the pioneer in Cloud-Native Application Security.
Because vulnerabilities are scattered across the design, code, open-source packages, infrastructure-as-code, containers, Git and CI/CD servers, and cloud infrastructure in the era of cloud-native application development, the remediation lifecycle is becoming longer and more complex.
Furthermore, due to the absence of context, the overall efficacy has been harmed by noisy warnings and false positives as a result of the change in responsibilities and the usage of a plethora of tools, each addressing only a small fraction of cloud-native application threats. Therefore, the visibility of the Software Bill Of Materials (SBOM) and context from cloud infrastructure to code are critical for the repair process across the software supply chain.
Partners from the cloud-native application security, DevOps, cloud infrastructure security, and other cybersecurity industries, such as Alacrinet, Defy Security, Google Cloud, HashiCorp, NetSPI, NXGN, parabellyx, and Trace3, have joined the Apiiro Partner Program to help customers remediate cloud-native application risks across the software supply chain. The Apiiro Risk Graph technology and supporting tools will help partners accelerate customer adoption and success with a contextual shift left risk remediation technology.
"Our customers aren't just modernizing their cloud-native application security - they're reinventing the way they develop, build, and deploy cloud-native applications across the software supply chain. By uniting in the Apiiro Partner Program, Apiiro and our partners can collectively ensure cloud-native applications are developed and delivered in a secure manner."
John Leon, VP of Business Development at Apiiro
Training tools and sales resources, as well as access to technical evaluation demos and documentation to enable go-to-market and collaborative marketing opportunities, are all included in the program. Additionally, partners may boost their value to customers by delivering contextual shift left risk remediation before releasing to the cloud by joining the Apiiro Partner Program.
