WSO2 Named to SD Times 100 for Fifth Consecutive Year

Palo Alto, CA – June 5, 2012 – WSO2 announced today that it has been recognized as a 2012 SD Times 100 award winner in the APIs and Integration category. This marks the fifth year in a row that WSO2 has been identified as a “leader in the software development industry.” Previously, WSO2 has been named an SD Times 100 winner in the 2011 Database and Integration category, 2010 and 2009 SOA & Middleware category, and 2008 Middleware category. In 2012, SD Times credited WSO2 with “leading the way” in providing developers with the “keys to service architecture,” as well as giving organizations “the ability to expose such things as order forms and inventory information to their partners, and to collect and use the updated information, electronically and automatically.” “We are thrilled to be recognized by SD Times as leader in the software development industry for five years running. It is a true testament to how well the market has responded to our lean, open source approach to middleware,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, founder and CEO of WSO2. “This year’s win holds special significance as it highlights the advantage of using the same modular code base to deliver the on-premise and cloud versions of our comprehensive middleware stack.” WSO2 provides the only integrated middleware that enables enterprises to seamlessly migrate their Web applications and services between on-premise, private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud environments as needed. This is possible because the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform, WSO2 Stratos cloud middleware platform, and WSO2 StratosLive are all built on the same componentized, OSGi-compliant 100% open source code base. Therefore, for example, the WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) software enabling one major online retailer to process more than 1 billion API transactions per day is delivering ESB-as-a-service in the cloud. Because of the shared code base, WSO2 achieved an industry first in November 2011 when the company simultaneously launched the latest versions of WSO2 Carbon, WSO2 Stratos, and WSO2 StratosLive, along with all 12 WSO2 Carbon middleware products and their corresponding WSO2 Stratos and WSO2 StratosLive cloud-native middleware services. As a result, all WSO2 customers had access to the latest WSO2 middleware technology whether their implementations ran on-premise or in the cloud.
