Free WSO2 Webinars Will Show IT Professionals How to Select an Effective ESB Framework and Take Advantage of New Functionality in the Latest WSO2 ESB Release Palo Alto, CA – October 3, 2012 – 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 October, WSO2 will present two technical webinars to help IT professionals strengthen their ESB evaluation process and take advantage of the advanced capabilities in the newest release of the WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus. Both webinars are available to participants at no cost. October 11: Selecting an Enterprise Service Bus Increasingly, enterprises demand integration reference architecture guidelines that include a comprehensive decision matrix for developing scalable, agile integration solutions. This webinar will introduce an integration reference architecture decision framework and product selection guidelines, as well as highlight use cases driving integration platform component and integration framework selection. The session also will examine common request for proposal (RFP) categories and line items and review tools to use with an ESB, integration framework, or alternative integration platform components, such as a data services server, API manager or governance registry. Finally, the webinar will review WSO2 client adoption patterns and success stories. Presenter Chris Haddad is WSO2 vice president of technology evangelism.
