WSO2 CTO to Present Technical Webinar on How to Take Advantage of WSO2’s Lean Enterprise Middleware Platform in the Data Center and the Cloud

WSO2 webinar on March 27, explores how to use WSO2’s modular middleware to streamline integration, cut project time, and deliver software that runs on-premises and in the cloud Palo Alto, CA – March 21, 2013 – Increasingly, enterprises are adopting a lean approach to middleware to simplify integration, streamline processes, and optimize the use of resources. However, many vendors claiming to be in the lean camp would have to put their middleware platforms on a serious diet to eliminate the redundancies and discrepancies that exist among their products. WSO2 Co-founder and CTO Paul Fremantle will present a webinar to review WSO2’s approach to lean with its fully componentized middleware platform, as well as examine how IT architects and developers best take advantage of WSO2’s technology in the data center and in the cloud. The one-hour technical session, “Understanding the WSO2 Platform and Technology,” will be held Wednesday, March 27, from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Pacific. For more information, visit: . Understanding the WSO2 Platform and Technology In this webinar, Paul will discuss how WSO2 launched the industry’s only fully componentized middleware platform, in which all products run on a core framework and are managed through a unified graphical management console. Today, WSO2 offers more than a dozen middleware products in both on-premise and fully multi-tenant cloud versions that are all built on the same code base. Paul will begin by explaining the core OSGi runtime that powers the fully componentized WSO2 Carbon platform. He then will delve into the key capabilities for integration, governance, monitoring, process management, identity management, and the user experience. From here, Paul will explore various cloud approaches and the characteristics of cloud-native software. Anchoring the discussion will be real-world use cases and case studies that demonstrate how a lean open source approach to enterprise middleware and enterprise architecture is more effective, offers better value, and delivers a faster return on investment (ROI) to organizations.
