Eurasian Economic Union Enables Economic Collaboration Between Nations Using Integration Platform Powered by WSO2 Software and Built by CROC

New case study explores how WSO2 partner CROC implemented a transnational data exchange platform connecting an estimated 300 government agencies across five EEU countries

Mountain View, CA – November 14, 2016 – WSO2 today announced that the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) is using the 100% open source WSO2 integration platform to power its transnational data exchange. The platform enables information to be shared easily across some 300 government agencies within the five countries forming the EEU: Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia. The exchange was created by WSO2 partner CROC, one of the largest integrators in Russia. The full case study can be downloaded at

Integrating nations into a single economic bloc is a complex task, particularly as large amounts of data must be shared across nations. This data is key to decisions regarding customs processes, regulation of pharmaceuticals, agriculture, markets and monopolies and more. By enabling secure, cross-border data exchange across the EEU, CROC has enabled each of the nations within the Union to function as an integrated part of a larger economy, as well as help implement regional law and policy decisions.

The new case study from WSO2 discusses the business and technology considerations CROC faced in designing the transnational data exchange, along with an overview of the resulting solution architecture. It also examines the integration platform within the exchange and the factors leading CROC to use WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (WSO2 ESB) as the technology to power it. The case study then reviews key benefits that CROC and the EEU have realized. These include on-time project completion, the ability to exceed performance goals, the ease of exchanging data, and the flexibility to integrate diverse systems.

“The entry of Armenia and Kyrgyzstan to the EEU was facilitated by the WSO2-based integration platform, since it allowed the countries to exchange customs and tax data. Significantly, the flexibility of the platform also has allowed the Union to launch state-to-state data exchange processes without the need for new development,” said Alexey Smirnov, head of the Integration Solutions Practice at CROC. “Using WSO2 middleware, we have the confidence that we can meet the technical challenges of integrating the EUU with other governments and agencies around the world.”

“Through its transnational data exchange, the Eurasian Economic Union is demonstrating how government institutions can effectively overcome the complexities of sharing data and services using enterprise-class open source software,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 founder, CEO and chief architect. “We are excited by CROC’s success in using our open source WSO2 ESB to implement the exchange’s integration platform and enable a new level of collaboration among EUU countries.”
