March 25: Handling Big Data for a Soccer Match

In addition to leading the Connected World track, WSO2 will also participate in the QCon São Paulo Architectures You Always Wanted to Know track. There WSO2 Vice President of Solutions Architecture Asanka Abeysinghe will present the session, "Tracking a Soccer Game with Big Data,” which will be held 3:35–4:25 p.m. on Wednesday, March 25, 2015.

In this talk, Asanka will examine a complex event processing (CEP) use case from WSO2's participation at the ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems (DEBS) 2013 Grand Challenge. He will discuss how WSO2 engineers tracked and processed data from a soccer match using WSO2 Complex Event Processor and MapReduce-based technologies, achieving throughput in excess of 100,000 events per second. He also will review how the team used WSO2 Business Activity Monitor (BAM) to provide detailed batch processing-based analysis of the soccer data that complemented the instant analytics delivered by WSO2 CEP.

March 26: Connected World Conference Track

WSO2 will lead the Connected World Track at QCon São Paulo, which encompasses four sessions and a panel discussion on Thursday, March 26, 2015.

Pattern-driven Enterprise Architecture – WSO2 Vice President of Solutions Architecture Asanka Abeysinghe will explore common patterns for a service-oriented architecture (SOA), Web-oriented architecture (WOA), event-driven architecture (EDA), and Internet of Things. He also will illustrate the blueprints of patterns for converting a business architecture to a solution architecture, and share best practices for adopting patterns during the software development lifecycle and software delivery.

Securing the Insecure – WSO2 Director of Security Architecture Prabath Siriwardena will examine patterns and best practices for mitigating undesirable behaviors to achieve computing “correctness.” He also will dive into the three security properties that can lead into undesirable behaviors: confidentiality, integrity and availability.

Creating an API-centric Enterprise – WSO2 Solutions Engineer Chathura Kulasinghe will examine how to optimize API management. He will begin by demonstrating how to expose a data source as an API, as well as secure and publish that API. Lakmal then will explain how to test the API online with popular tools, such as the SoapUI open-source Web service testing application.

Next-Gen Apps With IoT and Cloud – WSO2 Director of Security Architecture Prabath Siriwardena will examine a reference architecture for IoT and cloud-enabled applications as well as a platform as a service (PaaS)-based application lifecycle management (ALM) process. He also will demonstrate how to build and seamlessly provision an application using IoT and cloud technologies.

Building Tomorrow's Enterprise: Reports From the Ground Wars – WSO2 Vice President and Country Manager for Brazil Edgar Silva will moderate the open discussion featuring panelists LightHouse Tecnologia e Sistemas Founder and Partner Philippe Sevestre, CDS (CondominioDeSolucoes) Solution Director Yuri Marx, Livraria Saraiva eCommerce Solutions Architect Anael Carvalho, and WSO2 Vice President of Solutions Architecture Asanka Abeysinghe.

Together the technology experts will discuss the organizational challenges of building a connected business. They also will dive into the shortfalls of traditional methods, how to increase customer value with seamless internal and external connectivity, and the advantages of using open source middleware and cloud technologies for a connected business.
