This is a monthly newsletter related to WSO2 and tech in general.


To all of us at WSO2, despite facing a global pandemic, August has been a very special month this year for two reasons:

wso2 15

First of all, we turned 15!

On August 4, 2005, with just a handful of developers, WSO2 began its journey to build open-source middleware. Fast forward to today, our technologies for API management, integration, and identity and access management have been consistently recognized by industry analysts and are used by more than 500 customers in 70 countries and thousands of users worldwide.

From the beginning, our people-centric work culture, which is based on key values such as collaboration, transparency, inclusivity, and community contribution, has been imperative to our success. And this is precisely why we have a diverse team of exceptional people committed to persist against all odds to deliver high-quality technology.

The open-source software world has transformed so much since 2005, and we are certainly proud of WSO2’s role in bringing about that change. We will continue to learn from the communities we serve and take meaningful strides in making our products simpler and more effective.

Last but not least, thank you for being a part of our journey. We are incredibly privileged to have you with us.


Secondly, WSO2 was named a leader in The Forrester Wave™: API Management Solutions, Q3 2020 report.

The report provides a detailed analysis of top API management vendors and explains why WSO2’s API management platform is a Leader. In addition to being named a Leader, WSO2 API Manager received the highest scores possible in 11 criteria, including planned enhancements, commercial model, and geographic presence. In case you’re wondering, this means a lot to us and we are grateful to our customers and users for their support in accomplishing this. And if you haven’t tried out our open-source, full-lifecycle API management solution yet, do give it a spin. You can always get in touch with us if you need more support.
