WSO2 Webinar on August 22, Will Examine an ESB Evaluation Framework to Demonstrate Product Similarities and Strategic Differences, and Optimize SOA Functionality Palo Alto, CA – August 15, 2012 – An enterprise service bus (ESB) can help IT integration teams to implement service-oriented architecture (SOA) best practices and solve SOA anti-patterns of isolation, uniqueness and duplication. However, most teams do not develop evaluation use cases across all architectural attributes because they are difficult to measure. Instead, teams often focus on easy, identifiable product features that miss key design and deployment considerations. To help IT organizations strengthen their evaluation process, WSO2 will conduct a webinar on how to approach an ESB evaluation framework. The one-hour technical session, “WSO2 Advantage Webinar: ESB Evaluation Framework," is being held twice on Wednesday, August 22: 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PDT for the Americas and 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. GMT for Europe and Asia-Pacific.

The webinar will explore how to develop a comprehensive evaluation framework that considers business requirements, constraints, and technology strategy. The proposed ESB evaluation framework will demonstrate product similarities and strategic differences for IT professionals to consider, helping to ensure that an ESB meets their organization's needs today and in the future.
