After Sonic ESB pioneered the Enterprise Service Bus market and created technology to more readily integrate applications using Enterprise Integration Patterns, WSO2 continually added innovations to the core ESB pattern and created the highest performance, lowest footprint, fully interoperable and flexible ESB, WSO2 ESB.
Progress Software recently lowered their sights on supporting enterprise integration developers, and Progress is has publicly announced intent to sell Progress Sonic ESB, Actional services management, and FuseSource. Progress’ recent strategy shift places Sonic ESB, Sonic MQ, Actional, and FuseSource customers at risk of further obsolescence.
Where did Progress’ corporate strategy fail? By growing through ad-hoc acquisition and superficial integration instead of organic platform development. Progress played a failing game espoused by IBM, Oracle, and Software AG. Progress acquired competitive threats and then invested the minimal amount required to create a ‘SOA Suite’. As often the case, the strategy led to multiple overlapping products, competing business units, lost internal talent,
and a disjointed customer experience.
At WSO2, we have consistently taken a different approach. Our complete, composable, and cohesive platform was built through organic development, which continually enhances our core platform, incorporates market-leading innovations, and delivers a seamless customer experience. Our WSO2 Enterprise Platform enables complete data to screen enterprise integration, SOA, BPM, API management, web application development, and Cloud.
Our WSO2 ESB, WSO2 Governance Registry, WSO2 Business Activity Monitor, and WSO2 Identity Server provide a production proven, high performance SOA middleware foundation. We welcome you review our case studies and learn how WSO2 ESB processes more than 1 billion transactions per day for eBay, streamlines the development and maintenance of smart power grids, supports T24 core banking systems, and enables consolidated reporting across
