WSO2 to Present Rome Workshop on Implementing API Integration Within an SOA

In the era of the connected business, enterprises increasingly rely on the convergence of APIs, integration, and service-oriented architecture (SOA). RESTful APIs connect internal and external business participants; integration bridges silos; and SOA encourages organizations to build maintainable solutions. WSO2 will present a half-day hands-on workshop to help IT architects, developers and managers implement these practices.

The “API, Integration, and SOA Convergence” workshop will be held on Thursday, February 27, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., at the Hotel ibis Styles Roma Eur in Rome, Italy. For more information, visit http://wso2.com/events/workshops/2014-february-rome-api-integration-soa-convergence-workshop?022714.

Transforming the Integration Process

The hands-on workshop will demonstrate how enterprises can transform their integration processes by rapidly implementing a RESTful design, enforcing governance policies, safely scaling solutions, orchestrating complex interaction sequences, and reusing assets.

Workshop presenter Isabelle Mauny first will explore why mobile, cloud services, and big data insights are transforming integration practices. She then will review patterns and best practices for increasing adoption, speeding delivery, and creating maintainable solutions. Additionally, Isabelle will discuss how to realize a reference architecture for API, integration and SOA.

Workshop demonstrations will include:

  • Building RESTful APIs with WSO2 Application Server and WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (WSO2 ESB).
  • Sharing master data with WSO2 Data Services Server.
  • Mediating, transforming and routing messages with WSO2 ESB.
  • Encouraging mobile interactions with WSO2 API Manager.
  • Monitoring RESTful APIs, service usage and adoption with WSO2 API Manager, WSO2 ESB toolkits, and WSO2 Business Activity Monitor.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
