Codenvy and WSO2 announce partnership to bring cloud development to the enterprise

Codenvy to Integrate with WSO2 App Factory and WSO2 Cloud to Speed Development, Facilitate Collaboration, and Strengthen Life Cycle Management of Cloud Applications

SAN FRANCISCO – September 22, 2013 – Codenvy, the “Code Better Instantly” company, and WSO2, the lean enterprise middleware company, today announced a partnership to collaborate on extending cloud development deeper into enterprises. The two organizations will design new systems to provide full lifecycle development capabilities for complex middleware using cloud integrated development environments (IDEs).

“WSO2 has emerged as a global leader in enterprise middleware,“ said Tyler Jewell, CEO of Codenvy. “Their platform is powering billions of transactions every day, and their engineers are recognized as thought leaders in the evolution of enterprise application platforms. We felt it was important to collaborate directly with WSO2 to deliver the benefits of instant cloud development for enterprise systems. We are thrilled to be working with these mavens.”

The partnership will produce a number of joint assets. Codenvy will integrate directly with the new WSO2 Cloud (formerly WSO2 StratosLive) platform as a service (PaaS) to enable development and deployment of advanced middleware applications, integrations and APIs in the cloud. Codenvy will produce and publish a variety of enterprise cloud plug-ins for visual editors for WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus, data mapping, and business process management. Also, the organizations will create a special packaging for WSO2 App Factory, a complete cloud-enabled life cycle solution that blends pre-production workflows with production runtime environments. When all of this is combined, enterprise developers will be able to instantly provision development projects, develop code and configuration, collaborate with other developers and QA teams, and deploy middleware applications—all directly in the cloud.

“As the cloud empowers enterprises to innovate in new ways, we knew it was important to disrupt vendors of both large legacy middleware and PaaS by dramatically simplifying the entire application life cycle,“ said Sanjiva Weerawarana, CEO of WSO2. “Blending the instant, centralized and secure capabilities of cloud IDEs with WSO2 App Factory will dramatically improve the speed and quality of applications companies can deliver. This is going to be a high-impact partnership, promising massive benefits to the bottom line of any development organization.”
