WSO2 Workshop on Using the WSO2 API Manager Comes to Colombo

One-Day, Hands-on Workshop Offers IT Professionals Best Practices for Installing, Configuring and Using Advanced Features of the WSO2 API Manager Palo Alto, CA – July 25, 2012 – Many traditional service-oriented architecture (SOA) and integration platforms enable rapid development, but they provide little support for collaboration, sharing and re-use. As a result, IT teams often experience rapid portfolio proliferation and sprawl rather than enhanced business agility.
