The Connected Business: Evolving the Enterprise

A confluence of technology developments, including the cloud, mobile, APIs, social media and open source, is enabling enterprises to create new connections across employees, customers and partners. The connected businesses that capitalize on these technologies are gaining a competitive edge through new models of agility, business collaboration, monetization and efficiency. Organizations that fail to adapt will be left behind.

WSO2Con Asia 2014 is focused on empowering enterprises with the technology and implementation insights to succeed in the era of the connected business. Keynote presenters will explore the emerging technologies that are enabling the connected business, as well as case studies and key concepts around the practical application of these technologies to accelerate development and build a lean and agile connected business environment.
