Mountain View, CA – November 21, 2016 – WSO2 today announced that it has been cited by Forrester Research, Inc., as a strong performer in The Forrester Wave™: Hybrid Integration for Enterprises, Q4 2016 report1 published November 18, 2016. The report’s findings were based on a 24-criteria evaluation of the 11 software vendors Forrester has identified as the most significant providers of hybrid integration solutions for enterprises that help enterprise architecture (EA) professionals make the right choice. The report can be downloaded by Forrester clients or purchased here.

The Forrester report2 observes, “Enterprise service bus (ESB), enterprise application integration (EAI), and service-oriented architecture (SOA) have been the main pillars of firms’ integration strategies.” The report3 goes on to note, “But the integration landscape has changed from solely on-premises, with integration points being slow-changing, to a much more varied landscape that includes cloud for systems of engagement and systems of insight—as well as the expectation that as these ‘systems of x’ rapidly change, the integration interfaces will also rapidly change. EA pros are now rethinking their integration strategies, and more often they are seeking to replace the mainstays of ESB, EAI, and SOA with more complete tools to address this more complex landscape.”

Report’s Evaluation of WSO2 Integration Platform

The Forrester Wave™: Hybrid Integration for Enterprises, Q4 2016 evaluation of WSO2 was based on the WSO2 integration platform; it states4, “WSO2 provides one of three remaining open source solutions for hybrid integration.” The report also observes, “The company built its reputation in integration—thanks to an enterprise-class ESB that handles billions of transactions.
