Palo Alto, CA – October 12, 2011 – WSO2 announced today that products from its WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform won six categories of the National Best Quality Software Awards for 2011 (NBQSA 2011).

The NBQSA 2011 awards are organized by BCS The Chartered Institute for IT Sri Lanka (BCSSL) Section. Each year, the awards recognize individuals and organizations in Sri Lanka for their outstanding achievements in contributing to the development of information and communications technology (ICT), creating a window to gain international recognition for locally developed ICT products, and improving the standards and quality of local ICT products and services to compete in the international marketplace.

“We’re honored to earn six NBQSA 2011 Awards, which recognize world-class technology innovation and quality,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, founder and CEO of WSO2. “They validate the ground-breaking role of our WSO2 Carbon componentized open source platform in enabling IT professionals to decide exactly which middleware functions they want to deploy—and when—based on their individual project demands.”

The 100% open source WSO2 Carbon is the industry’s first fully componentized enterprise middleware platform, which complies with the OSGi specification. Today, it includes 12 middleware products—including the award-winning WSO2 Application Server, WSO2 Governance Registry, and WSO2 Identify Server—that are all based on the same core enterprise-class framework and use the same unified graphic management console. As a result, developers can easily deploy and customize any of WSO2’s middleware products and avoid the integration challenges of traditional middleware, enabling greater flexibility and agility to meet changing enterprise demands.
