WSO2 Executives Will Present Montréal Workshop on WSO2 Integration Platform Discovery

Half-day technical workshop on September 3, will examine best practices for optimizing enterprise application integration using an ESB model

Palo Alto, CA – August 21, 2013 – Today, best practices in enterprise application integration (EAI) are based on the use of an enterprise service bus (ESB) within a service-oriented architecture (SOA). In a half-day workshop for IT architects and developers, WSO2 will explore how IT professionals can take advantage of an ESB model to successfully implement a service broker pattern for connectivity, mediation, process orchestration, and security.

Jointly presenting the “WSO2 Integration Platform Discovery” workshop will be WSO2 Vice President of Solutions Architecture Asanka Abeysinghe and WSO2 Vice President of Product Marketing John Mathon. The event will be held on Tuesday, September 3, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., at Le Place d'Armes Hôtel & Suites in Montréal, Québec. For more information, visit:

The Role of an ESB within an SOA

The workshop is designed for IT architects and developers seeking to obtain a high-level architectural understanding of how ESBs fit within an SOA. Asanka and John will explore how enterprises can connect, mediate, orchestrate and manage interactions between application integration consumers and providers using WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus in conjunction with other components of the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform. Additionally, they will introduce API management as a solution to extend SOA architecture and govern APIs.

Workshop session topics will include:

  • Examining the ESB architecture, the role of an ESB within an SOA, and the benefits of loosely coupled application architectures.
  • Understanding core ESB capabilities, including mediation, transformation, routing, messaging, queuing and eventing.
  • Leveraging API management to enhance API delivery inside an enterprise.
  • Adopting a PaaS to deliver more scalable services, accelerate time to market, and extend API management to help an enterprise’s community develop applications while providing more control over the applications that use the organization’s services.
  • Using the data services server to expose any data source as a service, including RDBMS, NoSQL database and spreadsheets.
  • Implementing the governance registry to govern and manage services.
