WSO2 Will Present Session on Harnessing the Transformative Power of APIs at QCon London 2015

Technical session will examine best practices for building, hosting and managing APIs to transform user systems, daily functions and lifestyles

Mountain View, CA – February 24, 2015 – Today, people rely on various systems to help coordinate and perform common daily functions—such as checking the latest train or bus schedules from their smartphones and tablets. To seamlessly connect the systems delivering these services, organizations increasingly rely on managed APIs. At QCon London 2015, WSO2 will present a session on how enterprises can implement an effective infrastructure for hosting and managing APIs to optimize systems and user lifestyles.

WSO2 is a Silver Sponsor of QCon London, which will run March 4-6, 2015 at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London.

Building APIs to Transform Lifestyles

The session, "APIs that Change Lifestyles," is part of Sponsored Solution Track I and will be held 10:20 – 11:10 a.m. on Wednesday March 4, 2015 in the Abbey room, 4th Floor. Presenter Senaka Fernando, a WSO2 solutions architect, will examine how systems are leveraging APIs to help transform daily functions for users. He also will discuss guidelines for developers seeking to build the next big API project. Additionally, Senaka will explore an infrastructure for hosting and managing APIs to optimize an organization’s offering.

In addition to his product development efforts, Senaka has provided technology consulting on customer engagements, helping to successfully implement governance, enterprise application integration, SAP integration, and on-premise portal solutions. He is an elected member of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) and also a Project Management Committee (PMC) member and committer for a number of projects, which currently include Apache Web Services, Axis2, and several Apache incubator projects. Additionally, Senaka is a member of the OASIS S-RAMP, WEMI, and TOSCA technical committees.

Integrated Open Source Approach to the Connected Business

The WSO2 booth at QCon London 2015 will have experts available to discuss the synergistic, integrated approach of WSO2’s 100% open source platforms in addressing the technology demands of competing in a connected world, including the cloud, API management, big data analytics, the management and security of mobile and Internet of Things devices, and DevOps. Among the WSO2 solutions are products from the comprehensive WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform—including WSO2 API Manager, WSO2 Enterprise Mobility Manager, WSO2 Private PaaS, the WSO2 App Factory cloud-enabled DevOps platform, and WSO2 API Cloud.

Significantly, all WSO2 solutions are built on the same fully componentized, OSGI-compliant code base.
