Winners celebrated for innovative use of Kong products to accelerate Digital Transformation and create new services in modern software environments.

Kong, the cloud connectivity company, has announced the winners of its inaugural Cloud Connectivity Innovator Awards program at Kong Summit 2021.

The awards recognize individuals and teams who have accelerated Digital Transformation during the past five years using Kong products, including Kong Konnect, Kong Enterprise, Kong Gateway, Kuma or Insomnia.

The Cloud Connectivity Innovator Award honorees included:

Australia Post (Top Overall Enterprise Innovator): Kong Konnect powers government agency’s self-service API-first platform, offering developers autonomy and future-proof scalability

  • Australia Post provides a postal service to more than 25 million customers and has more than 4,300 locations. The organization needed an API gateway that could scale to meet future demands, provide automation capabilities for developers and support a multi-cloud environment.
  • Using Kong Konnect, Australia Post has reduced its developer onboarding time from 5-10 days to just a few minutes. Because Kong is deployment-agnostic and can govern how APIs are used and secured through industry-standard authentication and authorization plugins, Australia Post has been able to effectively decentralize its applications across multiple clouds and enable teams to proactively resolve business challenges within their environment of choice.

Cloud Connectivity Innovator Award submissions were evaluated based on the strength of their use case, including the challenges faced, the uniqueness of their solution and other differentiators that showcase a commitment to creating superb end-to-end connectivity while navigating modern microservices architectures.

“Kong is delighted to celebrate our inaugural Cloud Connectivity Innovator Award winners, as they showcase best-in-class examples of how developer teams can overcome the challenges of navigating modern architectures,” said Marco Palladino, CTO and Co-founder of Kong. “We are excited to help countless more companies in their Digital Transformation journeys.”
