2017 Year in Review

We’ve had an exciting year here at WSO2. Here’s a look back at everything that’s happened in 2017.

The year kicked off with a few major announcements at WSO2Con USA including the launch of Ballerina – a brand new programming language created specifically for integration,  and the repackaging of our integration products along with a whole new look of the web site.

With the advent of the second Payment Services Directive (PSD2), WSO2 ventured into the open banking market with a powerful WSO2 Open Banking solution. Since its launch, we’ve attracted 3 of the top 10 EU banks among others, and has proven to be the first choice for many.

We also turned 12 this year and to commemorate we recognized the Humans of WSO2. Speaking of humans, we had some major changes to our leadership team with Tyler Jewell taking over as CEO after  Sanjiva Weerawarana, founder and chairman, stepped down to be chief architect to focus his efforts on the development of Ballerina. Paul Fremantle (WSO2’s co-founder who was on sabbatical to complete his Ph.D) returned this year as our CTO. 

2017 has been yet another successful year for WSO2 in terms of growing the business. We added a record number of new customers from various industry verticals who have partnered with us to fulfill their digital journeys.  We are excited and humbled by what these enterprises have accomplished in terms of becoming more digital native and offering new digital experiences. While providing cutting-edge technology to build digital platforms, WSO2 helped these enterprises to evolve business models, focus on customer experiences, and optimize operations.

Recognizing these customers and their achievements, Asanka Abeysinghe, WSO2’s vice president of solutions architecture will conduct a webinar titled ‘Another Year of Digital Transformation – Learning Through Reflection’ on Tuesday, December 19. He will share his experiences on a few digital transformation projects that WSO2 was involved in and successfully implemented this year.

Here’s to a bigger and brighter 2018!
