WSO2 Positioned in the “Visionaries” Quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites

WSO2 today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites1, which was published on July 29, 2014. The new Gartner report looks at vendors with on-premises products that address a wide range of integration use cases. A reprint of the report can be downloaded at http://wso2.com/landing/gartner-magic-quadrant-for-on-premises-application-integration-suites.

“Today, digital business is driven by the interrelation of people, business and things,” the Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Integration Suites report2 observes. The report3 goes on to explain, “The challenge is that there will be 30 billion devices in the IoT by 2020, according to Gartner research (see ‘What the Board of Directors Needs to Know About Digital Business’). These devices will introduce new modes of interaction among users, adding to the infrastructure and integration requirements of enterprises.” The report4 also notes, “Enterprises need application integration functionality that supports a variety of integration patterns using a spectrum of approaches, from systematic to adaptive.”

“The world is changing rapidly to a place where people, applications and devices are all connected. This is creating new business models that harness the cloud, mobile, APIs, social media, and the Internet of Things. Behind all this, we need a model of integration that is simple, scalable and comprehensive,” said WSO2 Co-founder and CTO Paul Fremantle. "We are excited to be positioned in the 'Visionaries' quadrant by Gartner. We view this as validation that we are delivering on our vision of a modular, integrated platform that helps propel enterprises into the connected world.”

WSO2 Integrated Platform for On-Premises and the Cloud

WSO2 provides the only integrated middleware that enables enterprises to seamlessly migrate their Web applications and services between on-premises, cloud, and hybrid cloud environments as needed.

WSO2 Carbon is the industry’s first fully componentized middleware platform for creating, running and managing composite applications and Web services within an SOA and cloud environment. Built on the OSGi specification, WSO2 Carbon lets developers easily deploy and customize any of more than a dozen WSO2 Carbon-based middleware products, and the 175-plus components on which they are comprised, providing greater flexibility and agility to meet changing enterprise demands.

The cloud-ready, fully multi-tenant WSO2 Carbon middleware products run directly on servers or as virtual machines, and they are available as part of WSO2 Private PaaS, the industry’s most complete, open enterprise-grade platform as a service (PaaS). Therefore, for example, the WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) software enabling one major online retailer to process more than 1 billion API transactions per day also is delivering ESB as a service in the cloud.

WSO2 offers a range of service and support options for WSO2 Carbon and WSO2 Stratos. These include evaluation support, special QuickStartSM consulting programs, development support, and production support. All WSO2 middleware products are fully open source solutions released under the Apache License 2.0; they do not carry any licensing fees.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
With 15% of enterprises adopting a hybrid IT strategy, you need to set a plan to integrate hybrid cloud throughout your infrastructure. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steven Dreher, Director of Solutions Architecture at Green House Data, discussed how to plan for shifting resource requirements, overcome challenges, and implement hybrid IT alongside your existing data center assets. Highlights included anticipating workload, cost and resource calculations, integrating services on both sides...
"We are a well-established player in the application life cycle management market and we also have a very strong version control product," stated Flint Brenton, CEO of CollabNet,, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip? It’s a bold move, but you might consider walking away from your core platform and starting fresh. ReadyTalk did exactly that. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, will discuss why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and over a decade of audio conferencing product development to start an innovati...
Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...
