Nastel Technologies, the leader in integration infrastructure management (i2M) solutions for complex enterprises, today announced the general availability of Nastel Navigator™ version 10.3, a vital component of The Nastel Platform and the Navigator X solution.
Nastel Navigator™ is the leading i2M and messaging middleware management and automation solution helping enterprises, including most of the world’s top global banks, to efficiently and securely manage and control their Integration Infrastructure (i2) layer in any combination of hybrid-cloud, multi-cloud and more traditional IT environments.
