WSO2 CTO and Guest Industry Expert Will Conduct a Webinar on Transforming Application Development and Delivery

Webinar will examine how organizations can evolve toward the adoption of continuous integration and DevOps using APIs, cloud platforms and lifecycle management

Palo Alto, CA – March 5, 2014 – Many enterprises stand at a crossroads in software development. Bleeding-edge development techniques from Web pioneers are exciting but not yet practicable. Meanwhile, the waterfall method cannot produce the timely software projects critical to business innovation and success. To address this challenge, WSO2 and a guest speaker from Forrester Research, Inc. will conduct a webinar that examines how to find the middle ground between these extremes by using the “power trio” of APIs, cloud platforms, and lifecycle management to boost application development and delivery practices.

The webinar, “Power Trio: APIs, Cloud Platforms, Lifecycle Management,” will be presented by WSO2 Co-founder and CTO Paul Fremantle and feature guest speaker, Forrester Research, Inc. Vice President and Principal Analyst John Rymer. The session will be held Thursday, March 13, 2014, from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.

Transforming Application Delivery with the Power Trio

The webinar is designed for IT professionals seeking a more effective approach to enterprise software delivery. The session will explore how organizations can implement a power trio solution to evolve toward the adoption of continuous integration (CI) and DevOps. Using examples of enterprise shops that are transforming their application delivery through the power trio of APIs, cloud platforms, and lifecycle management, this session will examine how enterprises can:

  • Start by taking common Internet services, represented by APIs.
  • Add application deployment and ongoing improvement on cloud platforms.
  • Control the new environment with modern lifecycle management tools.
