With Microsoft’s trusted cloud and services, the experience that WSO2 has cultivated in its own systems will enable development teams to build digital services that are safer and more secure than ever before
A strategic partnership to roll out cloud-native solutions to regions around the world has been announced by WSO2, an open-source integration vendor and Microsoft. The solutions will be rolled out via Microsoft Azure for securely delivering APIs, applications, and digital identities. The partnership will also see the integration vendor adopt Microsoft Azure as its preferred cloud platform.
Including government agencies and global leaders in financial services, communications, healthcare, and technology, more than 800 customers in over 90 countries rely on WSO2’s products and solutions. To help enterprise customers across multiple markets and industries speed up their cloud adoption and digital transformation initiatives, the partnership will accelerate the delivery of the Choreo digital platform as a service (digital PaaS) and Asgardeo identity as a service (iDaaS).
By creating and deploying services, integrations, and APIs, Choreo empowers organisations to rapidly deliver new digital experiences. For development teams to quickly create, compose, collaborate on, reuse, and deliver API-driven business logic, the all-inclusive platform takes away the complexity of cloud-native infrastructure.
For any developer to integrate into their applications, Asgardeo simplifies customer identity and access management. To create a secure personalised digital experience, it combines traditional employee Identity Access Management (IAM) principles with consumer credential security.
“With Microsoft’s trusted cloud and services, the experience that WSO2 has cultivated in its own systems will enable development teams to build digital services that are safer and more secure than ever before. This partnership will allow them to increase their speed of innovation and accelerate our growth and customer adoption,” said Sanjiva Weerawarana, Founder and CEO, WSO2.
With industry-leading, cloud native and open-source technologies for API management, integration, and customer identity and access management (CIAM), WSO2 has been delivering on its mission to democratise the development of modern applications and services since 2005. With a new generation of platform-as-a-service solutions that further speed customers’ time to market and ability to innovate, the company is now expanding upon these offerings.
WSO2, in its latest funding round, secured a US$93 million in Growth Capital from Goldman Sachs Asset Management and Info Edge Limited subsidiary, RedStart Labs. Accelerating worldwide business expansion; and growing its global partner and support network, the company is investing in expanding upon the functionality of its core open-source products for API management (WSO2 API Manager) and customer identity and access management (WSO2 Identity Server).
“Developers are the catalyst to innovation that disrupts countless industries and help businesses transform and thrive!” said Diomedes Kastanis, Chief Technology Officer, Microsoft Asia Pacific. “It’s about creating the right environment and removing the friction so developers do what they know best: innovate. Our partnership with WSO2 will help accelerate cloud-based digital transformation and enable developers to increase their speed of innovation.”
