WSO2WSO2, a leading enterprise middleware company, has just announced the launch of the WSO2 App Factory, a cloud-enabled enterprise DevOps platform that allows project teams to collaborate on the creation, deployment and management of enterprise applications. This new DevOps platform also allows enterprises to better control the applications being developed with their APIs, including applications that are developed in-house and applications developed at their partner networks.

The WSO2 App Factory makes it possible for enterprises to manage the complete enterprise application lifecycle while ensuring corporate and government compliance. The WSO2 App Factory also supports the development of all types of enterprise applications including web apps, integrations, mashups, mobile apps and more. WSO2 founder and CEO Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana states for the press release that:

"Too often, enterprise agility is stalled by a proliferation of stovepipe deployments and shadow IT projects that are disconnected from enterprises' strategic initiatives. WSO2 App Factory removes those barriers by providing an open cloud-based platform for development collaboration backed by robust governance. Through WSO2 App Factory, enterprises now can extend their business capabilities across a connected ecosystem of internal teams, suppliers, channel partners, distributors and customers—while lowering the costs of integration and interaction."

The WSO2 App Factory is built on the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform and WSO2 Stratos and is an open source, cost-effective solution that can be deployed in a private or public cloud.
