Brum Brings Proven Success Developing, Delivering and Supporting Professional Open Source Software

Colombo, Sri Lanka and Mountain View, CA – April 18, 2008 – WSO2, the open source SOA company, announced today that Daniel Brum has joined WSO2 as director of technical sales. Most recently serving as technical director at MuleSource, Brum brings several years of proven success in developing, delivering and supporting professional open source software. Brum will be based in Toronto, Canada.

Brum is part of WSO2’s expanded management team, which is also being announced today. (For more information, see press release, “WSO2 Expands Management Team,” dated April 18, 2008.)

Brum brings to WSO2 extensive open source technology experience—both as a vendor and an enterprise customer. At MuleSource, he was a lead technical evangelist and technologist working with customers and the engineering teams. Before joining MuleSource, Brum worked with the JBoss Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) team as a core developer and architect, and he was the lead behind the corporate Rosetta project, which was donated to JBoss and became the seed for the JBoss ESB. Brum also worked with the pre-sales technical teams at JBoss, helping to evangelize the company’s professional open source model and products. Prior to JBoss, Brum was the head of enterprise applications and architecture with insurance provider Aviva Canada where he introduced open source tools such as Linux, JBoss, and PostGreSQL to the internal development team.

“WSO2 is at the forefront in delivering a comprehensive platform to support enterprises’ heterogeneous service-oriented architectures, which are best served by a flexible, open source approach,” said Brum. “I am excited to join the industry’s leading open source SOA experts at WSO2 in helping companies to realize the strategic benefits of open source SOA implementations—both internally and across their business networks.”

At WSO2, Brum will focus on named accounts in the company’s priority vertical markets and build the company’s business in the Americas.

“From the start, our mission has been to provide innovative and powerful open source software that addresses the real-world SOA demands of enterprise developers and architects,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, founder and CEO of WSO2. “We are thrilled to have Daniel onboard and look forward to tapping his depth of vendor-side and corporate experience in open source middleware to further extend the success of our customers’ SOA implementations.”

Prior to his roles at MuleSource, JBoss and Aviva Canada, Brum was the CTO of a startup in the late ‘90s, creating services for the intellectual property information technology space. He also worked as a consultant and software architect with companies such as Chubb & Son Insurance, Thomas Cook Americas, Sunlife Financial, Deloitte & Touche Consulting Group, SAS Argentina, and IBM Canada Footprint Division.
