WSO2 Webinar on October 2, Will Examine How to Extend SOA Functionality by Writing Reusable Business APIs and Services Palo Alto, CA – September 25, 2012 – Many traditional service-oriented architecture (SOA) and integration platforms enable rapid development, but they provide little support for collaboration, sharing and reuse. Additionally, SOA governance programs often fall short of encouraging consumer adoption, tracking service consumption, and illustrating business value. To help IT professionals address these concerns, WSO2 will present a webinar that examines how organizations can publish managed APIs for consumption and optimal business integration. The one-hour technical session, “WSO2 Advantage – Promoting Service Re-use with API Management," is being held on Tuesday, October 2, at 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PDT.

The webinar will explore how to use the capabilities in WSO2 API Manager to publish APIs for consumption within an organization. Additionally, the session will examine best practices for:
- Establishing API manager and publisher roles to foster API adoption.
- Extending the service governance registry to encourage cross-team or cross-department communication, coordination and collaboration.
- Overcoming common SOA anti-patterns, such as “not invented here” (NIH) and “build, and build again” by using an API Store.
- Following an API roadmap focused on increasing service reuse and enhancing IT business value.
