NEWSLETTER - December 2020

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


2020 has been quite a year, hasn’t it? However, even amid all the chaos—and overused terms like "unprecedented" and “the new normal”—we have all continued to thrive. Between major product launches, virtual events, analyst recognitions, and new programs taking root, this was another stellar year for WSO2. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Our success would not be possible without your continued support, collaboration, and enthusiasm.

To close off the year, along with our handpicked articles, we feature resources around our latest ebook on API automation and scaling, along with exciting milestones for WSO2 Identity Server.

API Automation and Scaling

API Automation and Scaling

In this digitally driven era, we rely on APIs so much without even knowing. Whether to make an online purchase or even check the weather, all of these tasks rely on APIs to pull data. This has created an exponential increase in demand for APIs.

A well-visioned API management solution helps by providing an advanced and effective marketplace to expose APIs. It also helps you to continuously grow your API consumer base and enhance consumer experiences to form loyal bonds. However, an enterprise should employ this strategy after careful consideration as the API ecosystem relies on it. There should be a well-defined mechanism to implement this. We’ve recently published an e-book to help steer you through these challenges. It explores why API automation is needed, the relationship between the API lifecycle and CI/CD process, how to adapt to increasing demand and more on what to look for when choosing the right API management solution.
