WSO2, SUSE and Yenlo Will Jointly Present Workshops on Integration Practices in Paris, Amsterdam and Berlin

One-day technical workshops will offer proven approaches for taking advantage of an ESB model and API management to optimize enterprise application integration

Palo Alto, CA – June 25, 2013 – Today, service-oriented architecture (SOA) principles and a flexible, highly capable enterprise service bus (ESB) are central to enterprise application integration (EAI) best practices. Together, WSO2, SUSE and Yenlo B.V. will present a series of one-day workshops for IT architects and developers that explore how to successfully implement a service broker pattern for connectivity, mediation, process orchestration, and security with an ESB model. Entitled “WSO2 Integration Platform Discovery,” the workshop series is being held from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. in three locations:

The Role of an ESB and API Management 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. Additionally, the session will examine how API management can help govern APIs and extend SOA architecture. 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, and support for enterprise integration patterns (EIP).
  • How to expose any data source as a service, including DBMS, NoSQL database, and spreadsheets, using the WSO2 Data Services Server.
  • THow to govern and manage enterprise services using the WSO2 Governance Registry.
  • How to leverage API management to enhance API delivery.
