WSO2 Enterprise Store

Organizations generate large volumes of assets. Business units distributed geographically and functionally often duplicate overlapping assets. These overlaps cause wastages in capital and time for enterprises. For this reason, the enterprise store is finding its place at the centre of a connected business as an efficient tool to discover, manage lifecycle states and monetize enterprise assets.

WSO2 Enterprise Store (WSO2 ES) is your user-friendly introduction to the limitless possibilities of employing an enterprise store for fully federated enterprise asset management. Development teams and business users alike can easily and rapidly discover, subscribe to, and utilize any digital enterprise asset to increase productivity and efficiency of an organization. With features such as customizable views of asset lifecycles and usage statistics, and the ability to change and manage each asset lifecycle, WSO2 ES is a very flexible and powerful platform to provision and manage digital assets. It is backed by the award winning WSO2 Carbon middleware stack, which provides enterprise grade identity management and stability.
