WSO2 Presents Stuttgart Workshop on WSO2 Integration Platform Discovery

In a one-day technical workshop on July 5, WSO2 and guest presenter T-Systems will explore how IT professionals can optimize enterprise application integration using an ESB model

Palo Alto, CA – June 26, 2013 – Today, enterprise application integration (EAI) best practices are based on service-oriented architecture (SOA) principles and a flexible, highly capable enterprise service bus (ESB). In a one-day workshop for IT architects and developers, WSO2 and guest presenter T-Systems will explore how to successfully implement a service broker pattern for connectivity, mediation, process orchestration, and security using an ESB model.

The “WSO2 Integration Platform Discovery” workshop will be held on Friday, July 5, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., at the Althoff Hotel am Schlossgarten, in Stuttgart, Germany. 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. It 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. It will also introduce API management as a solution to extend SOA architecture and govern APIs. Workshop session topics will include:

  • An overview of 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.
  • Using the data services server to expose any data source as a service, including RDBMS, NoSQL database and spreadsheets.
  • How to leverage API management to enhance APIs delivery inside an enterprise.
