WSO2 Kicks Off Beta Program for WSO2 AppFactory Cloud-enabled Enterprise DevOps Platform

The cloud is opening doors to new business models within enterprises and across their partner networks. However, it also is spurring the proliferation of stovepipe deployments and shadow IT projects that are disconnected from enterprises’ strategic initiatives, core operational systems, and corporate policies. WSO2 is addressing this challenge with WSO2 App Factory, a shared, multi-tenant and elastic cloud-based enterprise DevOps platform. WSO2 today announced that it is now accepting a limited number of applicants for the WSO2 App Factory beta program.

Cloud-enabled DevOps Platform Fosters Collaboration and Compliance

WSO2 App Factory empowers teams to collaboratively create, develop and deploy enterprise applications into cloud environments—without the delay of server provisioning. Robust lifecycle management and governance ensure compliance with IT, corporate and government policies. At the same time, the ability to create an Apple or Google Marketplace-like store means developers can easily subscribe to and consume APIs, applications and gadgets.

By using WSO2 App Factory to deliver a self-service development collaboration platform, enterprises can extend their business capabilities across a connected ecosystem of participants in order to accelerate their business activity. Additionally, enterprises can recognize new business opportunities, including greater utilization of the long tail, by enabling lower interaction costs and managed integration across a value web of suppliers, channel partners, distributors and customers.

WSO2 App Factory is built on the award-winning 100% open source WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform and WSO2 Stratos platform-as-a-service (PaaS) foundation. It also enables the integration of popular software development and operations offerings, such as Jenkins, Maven, Puppet, Bamboo, Jira, FindBugs and JUnit, to name a few. For a preview of WSO2 App Factory, visit https://appfactorypreview.wso2.com.

App Factory Beta Program Now Open

WSO2 is accepting a limited number of participants for the App Factory beta program. Ideal candidates are CIOs and other senior-level IT executives who have PaaS initiatives aimed at fostering innovation and enabling collaboration among business units and/or with partners. Candidates also must be committed to participating and giving feedback.

Digital Transformation is well underway with many applications already on the cloud utilizing agile and devops methodologies. Unfortunately, application security has been an afterthought and data breaches have become a daily occurrence. Security is not one individual or one's team responsibility. Raphael Reich will introduce you to DevSecOps concepts and outline how to seamlessly interweave security principles across your software development lifecycle and application lifecycle management. With ...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
All zSystem customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps ...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
Traditional IT, great for stable systems of record, is struggling to cope with newer, agile systems of engagement requirements coming straight from the business. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, William Morrish, General Manager of Product Sales at Interoute, will outline ways of exploiting new architectures to enable both systems and building them to support your existing platforms, with an eye for the future. Technologies such as Docker and the hyper-convergence of computing, networking and...
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
