WSO2 Presents Workshops on Enterprise Integration and Security in the Cloud

One-Day Workshops in Silicon Valley and New York Explore SOA Best Practices and Open Source Technologies for Addressing Top Enterprise IT Challenges

Palo Alto, CA – August 1, 2011 - Enterprise IT architects and developers face the dual demands of optimizing their service-oriented architecture (SOA) implementations on-premise while also seeking ways to leverage the cloud. This month, WSO2 delivers technical workshops designed to address two of enterprises’ top SOA challenges: enterprise integration and security in the cloud.

Security in the Cloud: August 4, 2011, Palo Alto, CA

The WSO2 “Security in the Cloud” workshop will identify the security challenges that can stop or slow a move to the cloud, review open source cloud middleware and security solutions, and explore best practices for safely maximizing the benefits of cloud. Topics include:

  • Patterns and practices for overcoming the risks and challenges associated with different cloud deployment models.
  • Best practices for ensuring data security in a multi-tenant environment.
  • Approaches for building an effective governance model across all cloud services.
  • How to build a cloud identity and access management solution using open standards, such as Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0, OpenID, OAuth, eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML), and Smart Common Input Method (SCIM).

Leading the workshop are Asanka Abeysinghe, WSO2 director of solutions architecture and an Apache Software Foundation committer; Prabath Siriwardena, WSO2 software architect and senior manager; and Asela Pathberiya, senior software engineer-quality assurance. They will support the discussions with demonstrations using the fully open source WSO2 Stratos cloud middleware platform.

The “ESBs and Enterprise Integration” workshop will provide both a high-level architectural view of how an enterprise service bus (ESB) fits within an SOA and demonstrate how an ESB can be deployed for connecting, mediating, orchestrating and managing application integration. Topics include:

  • The role of an ESB within an SOA and benefits of loosely coupled application architectures.
  • Patterns for mediation, application programming interface (API) management, and master data management.
  • The use of ESBs for messaging, queuing and eventing.
  • The ESB as a component of process orchestration, security and governance.
  • Deployment patterns for high availability, load balancing, and performance tuning using real-world customer examples.
  • Complementary integration technologies, including adaptors for SAP,, Health Level Seven (HL7), Financial Information eXchange (FIX), and PayPal.

Leading the workshop are Asanka Abeysinghe, WSO2 director of solutions architecture, and Chintana Wilamuna, WSO2 associate technical lead. Asanka and Chintana, who are also Apache Software Foundation committers, will support the discussions with demonstrations of the fully open source WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus, which is built on and extends the Apache Synapse ESB.
