WSO2 Conducts First APAC Partner Developer Hackathon

While the year 2021 was a huge success, we've re-energized ourselves for 2022. By launching new cloud platforms, we began our path to radically simplify the production of digital experiences for our clients. This allows us to offer products and solutions as software as a service (SaaS), private cloud, or on-premises, with the ability to seamlessly move between the three alternatives in the future.

Our partner program continues to be extremely beneficial to us. WSO2 launched APAC's first Partner Developer Hackathon as part of its commitment to continual innovation. This event was aimed at new APAC Value-Added Resellers (VARs) and Integration Partners. This developer hackathon's goal was to put their product knowledge to the test in real-time. It also encouraged creativity and allowed WSO2 to see firsthand how partners approached business problems and how they came up with fresh and innovative solutions.

This exercise provided partners with the confidence they needed to position WSO2 technology and specialty services to customers, as well as an understanding of how their thinking matched industry best practices. It also improved teamwork as partners had to work together within their own teams to find solutions.

The partners were presented with three real-world use cases, from which they chose one and planned and implemented a solution using WSO2 API Manager, WSO2 Enterprise Integrator, and WSO2 Identity Server.

The following three WSO2 partners took the top three rankings out of a total of 13 new WSO2 partners:

We'd like to thank all of the winners and participants for their dedication to WSO2 and their hard work. In the future, we plan to organize similar programs in other parts of the world.
