NEWSLETTER - June 2021
This is a monthly newsletter related to WSO2 and tech in general.
This month marks an important milestone in our journey towards simplifying the way enterprises create, deliver, and scale digital experiences. We are thrilled to announce two major launches that significantly lower barriers to delivering cloud-native applications.
Say hello to Choreo, a next-gen integration platform as a service (iPaaS) for cloud native engineering, and Ballerina Swan Lake Beta.
Enterprises worldwide are accelerating their digital transformation initiatives, with many starting years earlier than originally planned. But, too often, these initiatives are hampered by the lack of deep technical expertise required to get projects off the ground and deliver digital products and solutions. Using the Choreo iPaaS, now in public beta, developers can engineer in low-code and code simultaneously; build, test and deploy in Kubernetes; manage APIs; share them in a marketplace; and observe performance—all within hours not weeks
Choreo offers a simple, low-code way for hybrid business and development teams to build, deliver, and share sophisticated cloud native, API-driven applications without requiring the recruitment of a legion of Kubernetes and IT Ops experts.
WSO2, announced that it has acquired Platformer, innovator of an enterprise-grade cloud native application platform that empowers enterprise developers and DevOps to deploy and manage their containerized workloads securely, and reliably at scale on Kubernetes. As part of WSO2, Platformer, which has operations in Australia and Sri Lanka, will play a central role in extending the Kubernetes capabilities of the data plane of Choreo.
The Platformer Console complements Choreo by enhancing its Kubernetes-based deployment capabilities to support multiple regions, multiple cloud providers, and even private clouds. The Platformer technology will allow Choreo to expand beyond the open-source Ballerina programming language to support the DevOps management of any containerized workload. It provides capabilities for centrally managing the development, deployment, and monitoring of cloud native applications; accelerating the development cycle; and building apps for vendor-neutral Kubernetes in a cloud agnostic way.
Increasingly, enterprises are turning to cloud-native applications that integrate APIs, events, data, microservices, serverless apps, and other digital assets throughout their organizations and across the ecosystems in which they participate. Ballerina is the open-source language for cloud-native programming and integration designed to support these organizations, with a unique bidirectional mapping of sequence diagrams and code. The new Swan Lake Beta release, radically simplifies how developers build and deploy cloud-native applications through an intuitive syntax for developing services and APIs, seamless JSON support, and built-in concurrency control.
We’re delighted to announce that the latest iteration of WSO2’s open banking platform, WSO2 Open Banking 3.0, is now available!
For banks, our May 2021 release reiterates our commitment to simplify how you launch and scale your open banking capabilities and meet ever-growing regulatory and business requirements. This version helps your technical and business teams be more agile by introducing capabilities for easier testing, deployment, and scaling of new services and enhanced UIs and workflows for productivity, all underpinned by ongoing standards compliance and improved security and resilience.
Don't miss this opportunity to witness WSO2's A-Team comprising Chief Technology Officer Eric Newcomer and Chief Technology Evangelist Asanka Abeysinghe -, take center stage at INTERFACE by apidays from the 30th of June to the 2nd of July. Visit WSO2's booth to network and interact with our technology experts and find out how our next-generation technologies can help your organization become future-proof.
Event-driven architecture enables building highly available and reliable applications that can scale to handle traffic spikes. However, there are some misconceptions around its use. This article discusses some of these misconceptions and debunks them with some practical examples.
The recent constraints on physical businesses have pushed organizations to accelerate plans to move operations to the digital world—often shrinking timelines from years to months. Companies across all sectors are increasingly leveraging the Internet to provide necessary products and services to consumers.
Within this context, customer identity and access management (CIAM) products have become critical for digital transformation initiatives. As organizations start on their CIAM journeys, it is important that they understand not just the latest trends but also the potential challenges they may have to overcome.
Even if your organization is at the point of deciding on the ideal CIAM solution or still evaluating whether to embark on a CIAM journey, it is important that you understand what factors you should consider when making your decision.
APIs have become the building block of any successful digital business, and they are an invaluable asset for any organization’s employees, partners, customers, and other stakeholders to gain access to applications, data, and business functions across the enterprise. However, they have become targets for sophisticated security attacks. Knowing how to protect APIs and choosing the right security method has become the top priority for many businesses as the success of the whole enterprise depends on the security of its services offered through APIs.
