Happy New Year and welcome to the new WSO2 Corporate Blog!
Five years into the WSO2 journey, the WSO2 company and community continue to grow rapidly. This past year marked a number of significant milestones in our growth:
- Completing another year of 100% growth in customers, revenue and bookings
- The WSO2 employee count surpassed 100
- The WSO2 OxygenTank user community passed 30,000 registered members and 300,000 indexed pages
- The pace of innovation remains high, with nearly 50 product and 20 service releases this last year
You can imagine the amount of documentation, articles, tutorials, and so forth this much activity generates! And WSO2 is unique in the openness and transparency with which we develop our products – with forums, mailing lists, code bases, and building an immense, fully-open knowledge base day by day.
And not just on the OxygenTank! Many bloggers including lots of WSO2 employees are regularly publishing valuable content elsewhere on a huge variety of WSO2 and industry topics. That includes me, Paul, and others of the executive team. Currently there are over 50,000 links back to the OxygenTank. Sometimes it seems impossible to keep up!
So today we’re inaugurating a simpler and more manageable way to share important technical and business milestones, executive viewpoints, and high-level commentary about industry trends. You’ll see posts from me, from co-founder & CTO Paul Fremantle, VPs Lavi De Silva, Jonathan Marsh, and Samisa Abeysinghe, and others. By consolidating and moderating contributions in a single place, we hope to make this corporate blog a concise, insightful, and entertaining way to track WSO2’s progress as we roar into our second half-decade.
