WSO2 to Present Practical Workshop on Using the WSO2 API Manager in London and Palo Alto

One-Day, Hands-on Workshop Offers IT Professionals Best Practices for Installing, Configuring and Using Advanced Features of the WSO2 API Manager Palo Alto, CA – July 18, 2012 – Many traditional service-oriented architecture (SOA) and integration platforms enable rapid development, but they provide little support for collaboration, sharing and re-use. As a result, IT teams often experience rapid portfolio proliferation and sprawl rather than enhanced business agility. In a hands-on workshop for IT professionals,WSO2 will explore how to use the WSO2 API Manager (currently in beta) to address these challenges and optimize an organization’s API interactions. To participate in the one-day workshop, “Discover the WSO2 API Manager,” attendees will need to bring a laptop capable of running a virtual machine (4 GB memory recommended). The workshop, which runs 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., is being held in two locations:
