WSO2 wins key international award
WSO2, the open source SOA company, announced this week that the WSO2 Web Services Application Server (WSAS) 2.0 has received the SearchSOA.com Product of the Year award in the Data Services/Integration category.
Earning a SearchSOA.com Gold product designation, the WSO2 WSAS 2.0 was one of this year’s winners, who were selected according to their performance in the following areas: innovation, performance, ease of integration into environment, ease of use and manageability, functionality, value, and how well they enable service orientation.
According to SearchSOA.com, “SOA has created new age problems for data. ETL-based data warehouses aren't built for the agile, on-demand nature of SOA and it is a new age, open source vendor taking top honors in the data services/integration category. WSO2's data services allow developers to expose data stored in relational databases in minutes via a Web services API without programming. An XML response is generated using database data, making it fast and easy to include this data in Web mashups.”
“We are greatly honoured to receive the Product of the Year award for Data Services/Integration from SearchSOA.com, one of the industry’s premier resources for real-world SOA solutions and strategies,” said Sanjiva Weerawarana, founder and CEO of WSO2. “This is strong validation of our fundamental belief that a new generation of open source software will play a strategic role in enabling enterprises’ inherently heterogeneous service-oriented architectures. We will continue to deliver on this mission by expanding on the rich data services, development and integration functionality in the WSO2 Web Services Application Server.”
WSO2 is the open source SOA company founded by pioneers in Web services and of members of the Apache Software Foundation Web services community. The company is backed by Intel Capital and maintains operations in the US, UK and Sri Lanka.
