WSO2 is set to host three workshops on integrated ecosystems across three Asia-Pacific cities throughout the month of May. Plus, the role of APIs in cross-border currency transfer and 11 new APIs.

WSO2 to Host Integrated Ecosystem Workshops

WSO2 will be hosting three Asia-Pacific workshops next month on integrated ecosystems. An integrated ecosystem, in the eyes of WSO2, constitutes a connected business that integrates people, processes, and data across an extended value chain. In three different cities (Kuala Lumpur, Sydney, and Auckland), WSO2 will conduct workshops that teach attendees how to build a connected business through the use of cloud, mobile, API, big data, social, and open source technologies.

The workshops are designed for enterprise architects, IT managers, CIOs, and SOA experts. More on the "Integrated Ecosystem" series can be found at the individual registration sites (Kuala Lumpur, Sydney, Auckland).
