“The most recent events in London and San Francisco were a great success with attendees commending on the technology insights gained on being a connected business. We now bring the same great talks to Asia together with more networking opportunities,” says Tasha Hettiarachchi, Conference Chairperson and Senior Marketing Officer at WSO2.

All of the conference talks and hands-on tutorials will showcase how a connected business seamlessly integrates people, process, and data across an extended value chain, decreases interaction cost, and automatically adapts business activity in response to market events.

The conference sessions will focus on, new enterprise integration architectures, cloud technologies that transform application delivery, enterprise mobility, big data analysis, enterprise governance and security, and agile enterprise application development platform.

Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2’s founder, chairman, and CEO said “the objective of these conferences is to provide participants a great opportunity to learn how connected businesses can grow revenue and outperform peers by increasing customer engagement, enhancing productivity, and seizing market opportunity. Participants generally include existing as well as potential customers.”

WSO2Con Asia 2014 will be followed by WSO2Con Europe 2014, taking place in Barcelona, Spain in June, and WSO2Con USA 2014, taking place in San Francisco in October.

“Our customer portfolio has grown in recent years not only in numbers, but in terms of geographical representation as well; therefore, we felt there was a need to host this conference in the top 3 regions where we have a presence,” adds Weerawarana.
