WSO2 Positioned in the “Visionaries” Quadrant of Three New Magic Quadrant Reports Published June 20, 2012

WSO2 today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of three new reports that were published on June 20, 2012: Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic Application Integration Projects1, Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic SOA Application Projects2, and Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic SOA Infrastructure Projects3.

Each of the three new reports from Gartner looks at the requirements that IT professionals face today in implementing service-oriented architecture (SOA) projects and integrating applications, both on-premise and in the cloud.

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic Application Integration Projects4 report observes, “The challenge of integrating applications includes integration with cloud-based applications. A wide range of approaches for integration—from integration software to integration platform as a service (iPaaS) to integration services—are now commonly applied, and each approach has its strengths and challenges, which makes choosing the best approach for a particular IT project ever-more complex.”

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic SOA Application Projects5 report notes, “Because systematic applications are intended for long-term use, they must be scalable, changeable, extensible and manageable. Many of these project teams deploy advanced software design models, such as event processing, SOA federation and cloud-enablement.”

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure for Systematic SOA Infrastructure Projects6 report, states, “Increasingly, the choice of technologies and products aimed at supporting the implementation of the SOA infrastructure for the whole initiative is done ‘once and for all,’ because the resulting platform is, almost by definition, shared among all the SOA application projects in the enterprise (or in a specific SOA domain).”

“We’ve worked closely with our customers and the open source community to deliver a lean and highly adaptive middleware platform that addresses the demands of modern enterprises, whether their applications reside on-premise or in the cloud,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 founder and CEO. “We are excited to be positioned in the ‘Visionaries’ quadrant by Gartner. We view it as confirmation of our commitment to the technology and services that meet enterprises’ real-world business needs.”

WSO2 Middleware for On-Premise and the Cloud

WSO2 provides the only integrated middleware that enables enterprises to seamlessly migrate their Web applications and services between on-premise, private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud environments as needed. This is possible because the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform, WSO2 Stratos cloud middleware platform, and WSO2 StratosLive are all built on the same componentized, OSGi-compliant 100% open source code base. Therefore, for example, the WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) software enabling one major online retailer to process more than 1 billion API transactions per day also is delivering ESB-as-a-service in the cloud.

Because of the shared code base, WSO2 achieved an industry first in November 2011 when the company simultaneously launched the latest versions of WSO2 Carbon, WSO2 Stratos, and WSO2 StratosLive, along with all 12 WSO2 Carbon middleware products and their corresponding WSO2 Stratos and WSO2 StratosLive cloud-native middleware services. As a result, all WSO2 customers had access to the latest WSO2 middleware technology whether their implementations ran on-premise or in the cloud.

WSO2 offers a range of service and support options for WSO2 Carbon, WSO2 Stratos, and WSO2 StratosLive. These include evaluation support, special QuickStartSM and CloudStartSM consulting programs, development support, and production support. All WSO2 middleware products are fully open source solutions released under the Apache License 2.0; they do not carry any licensing fees.
