Virtual Workshop

In today’s experience economy, unique digital experiences have become a competitive advantage and a requirement for growing companies. But delivering these experiences is not easy, and organizations are struggling to convert strategies into value. Too often, technology leaders must focus on building platforms to hide complexity and increase productivity, investing significant time, money, and unique skill sets in infrastructure instead of digital innovation.

As a strategist or a craftsman in a digital transformation journey, you might be thinking:

  • Why is having a digital platform a critical success factor?
  • What are the characteristics of a digital platform in the modern experience economy, and cloud native architecture?
  • How does a digital platform fuel and expedite an organization's digital strategy and the effectiveness of the digital strategists?

In this workshop, principal architects from WSO2 will answer these questions by sharing real stories from the industry and reference implementations that use a market-leading digital platform-as-a-service, Choreo.

Choreo

Choreo helps you deliver new digital experiences fast. It abstracts away the complexity of cloud-native dev and ops infrastructure so you can create new APIs, integrations, and services in hours or days instead of weeks or months.

What You'll Learn, and how to Apply it

By the end of this workshop, you'll understand:

  • What a digital platform is and how it bridges between the business and technical aspects of digital strategy.
  • How a digital platform fits into emerging business models and architecture styles such as cloud native architecture (CNA), microservice architecture (MSA), and event-driven architecture (EDA).
  • How to leverage the benefits of a digital platform to drive a digital-first mindset with your stakeholders.
  • The fundamentals of digital core and the components.
  • How you can deliver digital experiences better, faster, and more cost-effectively using a digital platform-as-a-service.
