Mountain View, CA – March 9, 2017 – Digital transformation has lead to many unique products, services, and business models, and is reshaping the landscape of numerous industries by allowing them to engage better with consumers, partners, employees and others. Meanwhile, established organizations are trying to remain competitive by engaging in digital transformation. To support these organizations, WSO2 will present six technical webinars on how integration, API management, the Internet of Things (IoT), identity and access management (IAM), and analytics—along with WSO2’s open source platform approach—serve as enablers for digital businesses and digital transformation.

This webinar series will run March 15 – April 26, 2017. To learn more, visit http://wso2.com/landing/enabling-digital-transformation-with-wso2-technology/.

March 15 – The Role of Enterprise Integration in Digital Transformation

Every enterprise has a multitude of existing systems running on-premises and in the cloud, which perform critical functions. Integrating data and services across these enterprise systems is critical for an enterprise to successfully offer APIs that provide critical business functions to new markets, a key element of digital transformation.

This webinar will discuss the role of integration in digital transformation and explore how WSO2 meets key requirements in this space, including:

  • An enterprise integration overview
  • A review of whether integration services are an anti-pattern in future enterprise architectures
  • Integration beyond the ESB: connecting services, systems, data and identities
  • The role of integration in microservices, IoT and APIs
  • Hybrid integration models: on-premises, integration platform as a service (iPaaS) and integration software as a service (iSaaS)

Webinar presenter Kasun Indrasiri is WSO2 director of integration technology. The session will be held on Wednesday, March 15, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PDT. Visit http://wso2.com/library/webinars/2017/03/the-role-of-enterprise-integration-in-digital-transformation/ for more information.

March 22 – Building Enterprise-Grade IoT Architectures for Digital Transformation

IoT and mobile computing are at the heart of many organizations’ digital transformation initiatives. Together, these technologies are enabling enterprises to innovate new business models and solutions that enhance customer and partner interactions, optimize supply chain logistics, and improve operational efficiency.

This webinar will examine how WSO2 IoT Server offers an extensible framework for device manufacturers to write plugins for various types of devices they wish to integrate and how it also features enterprise mobility management (EMM) for enterprises looking to manage employees’ mobile devices. Other key topics will include:

  • An IoT solution and deployment architecture for digital transformation
  • IoT analytics
  • IoT integration via APIs
  • Security architecture for IoT and EMM

March 29 – Identity and Access Management in the Era of Digital Transformation

Solutions for strong identity and access management, whether the user is a person or a device, are critical to the success of a digital business. This session will explore the challenges of IAM that need to be addressed when preparing for digital transformation.

The webinar will begin by discussing how a variety of digital apps and services now span many ecosystems, as well as how security becomes weaker as more systems are integrated while using a single identity. Next, it will examine how these factors contribute to the need for federated identity management and multi-factor authentication and authorization to ensure robust security without compromising usability and the customer’s experience. The session then will discuss how WSO2 IAM technology helps IT professionals to overcome these challenges and support their organization’s digital business initiatives.

Prabath Siriwardena, WSO2 director of security architecture, will present this webinar on Wednesday, March 29, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PDT. For more information, visit http://wso2.com/library/webinars/2017/03/identity-and-access-management-in-the-era-of-digital-transformation/.

April 5 – APIs: The Gateway to Digital Transformation

APIs are the front line of defense in any business. This webinar will explore how API management also serves as a key enabler in digital transformation. It will begin by reviewing how APIs can dramatically reduce friction in enabling internal innovation, efficiency, and the creation of new business models by making it easier to discover and consume digital services by both internal and external parties. It then will examine the designs, best practices, benefits, and drawbacks of API management solutions that allow enterprises to create, publish and manage APIs.

Additionally, the webinar will discuss how IT professionals can:

  • Identify the key performance indicators for evaluating an API strategy.
  • Build the right solutions architecture.
  • Make an API ecosystem future-proof.

Nuwan Dias, an associate director and architect at WSO2, will present this webinar on Wednesday, April 5, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PDT. To learn more, visit http://wso2.com/library/webinars/2017/04/apis-the-gateway-to-digital-transformation/.

April 19 – Driving Insights in the Digital Enterprise

Data and digital businesses go hand-in-hand. Enterprises today not only need to gather the large amounts of data flowing in from the web, IoT sensors, and mobile devices but also to immediately analyze them for meaningful insights into how to drive new business value. This webinar will discuss how smart analytics combine event stream processing with machine-learning and deep-learning systems to address these requirements.

This webinar will explore how WSO2 Data Analytics Server for smart analytics:

  • Plays a role in an enterprise’s digital transformation journey.
  • Collects and analyzes streaming data in real-time, incrementally and with intelligence.
  • Communicates results effectively through dashboards and alerts.
  • Enables IT professionals to build smart analytics solutions for their digital business initiatives.
