WSO2 Webinar on May 10, Explores Enterprise Integration Concepts and How the Configurable WSO2 ESB Can Minimize the Coding Required to Connect Applications Palo Alto, CA – May 2, 2012 – Today organizations rely on a variety of software applications to efficiently carry out their business functions. However, synchronizing these heterogeneous applications can impose significant challenges, since it requires enterprises to integrate different programming languages, platforms, data formats, protocols, and quality of service (QoS) requirements. To help IT architects take advantage of their software deployments, WSO2 will present a free webinar on how to simplify integration by using the highly configurable WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (ESB). The one-hour technical session, “WSO2 Intro Webinar: Simplifying Enterprise Integration with Configurable WSO2 ESB," is being held on Thursday, May 10, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Pacific.
