APIs, the cloud, mobile, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are enabling companies to extend business and technical functions.

Together, APIs, the cloud, mobile, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are enabling companies to extend business and technical functions within an organization and across divisions, customers and partners. WSO2 Co-founder and CTO Paul Fremantle will discuss open source approaches to implementing these technologies in a keynote session at Forrester's Forum for Technology Management Leaders 2014.

WSO2 is a Platinum Sponsor of Forrester's Forum for Technology Management Leaders, which will run May 5-6, 2014 at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida.

Transforming into a Connected Business with APIs, Cloud and Mobile

Paul’s keynote, “The Evolution of a Connected Business,” will be held 2:35 – 3:05 p.m. on Monday, May 5. In this session, Paul will explore open source approaches that take advantage of APIs, cloud and mobile technologies to create and enhance new business models.

Paul will begin by examining the significance of APIs and how cloud development can be transformative. He then will examine how to integrate mobile and IoT technologies to create a connected business. Additionally, he will review use cases of organizations that have connected their digital ecosystems—examining how and why they took the approaches that they did, as well as the results they have achieved.

Paul Fremantle is WSO2 co-founder and CTO, and he is co-chair of the OASIS Web Services Reliable eXchange Technical Committee. Recognized by InfoWorld as a Top 25 CTO, he was responsible for simultaneously leading development of the groundbreaking WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus and Apache Synapse ESB. Paul has played a pioneering role in open source development, beginning with the original Apache SOAP project and his role in leading IBM's involvement in the Axis C/C++ project. Paul is a member of the Apache Software Foundation, and he previously served as vice president of the Apache Synapse project.

Integrated Open Source Approach to the Connected Business

The WSO2 booth at Forrester's Forum for Technology Management Leaders will have experts available to discuss the synergistic, integrated approach of WSO2’s 100% open source platforms in addressing the demands of the connected business. They include the comprehensive WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform, WSO2 Enterprise Mobility Manager, WSO2 App Factory cloud-enabled DevOps platform, WSO2 Private PaaS and WSO2 Public Cloud.

Significantly, all WSO2 solutions are built on the same fully componentized, OSGI-compliant code base. As a result, developers can easily deploy and customize any of these WSO2 products and the 175-plus components on which they are comprised, providing greater flexibility and agility to meet changing enterprise demands.

In addition to WSO2 cloud platforms, all WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware products also are fully multitenant and cloud-ready. This means IT professionals can write an application once and deploy it on the same middleware on-premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid environment.
