Mountain View, CA – June 15, 201 – Across market sectors, businesses are recognizing strategic advantages provided by the Internet of Things (IoT). At API Days San Francisco (API Days SF) 2015, WSO2 Vice President of Solutions Architecture Asanka Abeysinghe will discuss how to connect IoT devices and sensors with other enterprise systems using APIs.
