New features for Choreo platform

To help enterprises deliver new digital experiences in hours or days, WSO2 (www.wso2.com) has added a number of new features to its Choreo digital platform as a service (digital PaaS).

New features will include: bring your own container (BYOC), which lets developers use Choreo with any applications written in their language of choice; Choreo DevOps Portal, an end-to-end DevOps toolchain for deploying and managing containerized workloads on any Kubernetes environment; and private data planes that can run in any cloud region or within customers’ private cloud or on-premises Kubernetes environments, regardless of where the Choreo control plane is located, for greater deployment flexibility.  

Additional features include, GraphQL component to support GraphQL APIs for mobile and web application development; Choreo internal APIs to enable fully managed, internally facing APIs; and customisable domains and themes in the Choreo Developer Portal.

“Since introducing Choreo, we have seen development and operations teams realize a notable reduction in their efforts required to manage complex cloud native applications,” says Kanchana Wickremasinghe, Vice President and General Manager of the WSO2 Integration Business Unit.  “Now with the addition of our bring-your-own-container functionality and DevOps Portal to Choreo, we are significantly expanding the ability of development teams to be more productive and achieve faster development lifecycles.”
 
“IIIT Hyderabad works on various innovative technology solutions that help nonprofits in healthcare, education, and other sectors to support the communities they serve.  Using Choreo and the Choreo Marketplace, we are providing a one-stop-shop where nonprofits can access APIs to applications and services without having to know which organisations they come from,” adds Khoushik Ananth, lead engineer, The International Institute of Information Technology – Hyderabad (IIIT Hyderabad).  “Choreo also automates API documentation, single sign-on, and management of the underlying infrastructure, which has freed up our team to focus on making new solutions available faster.”

“Choreo can already be rightfully called a turn-key platform for delivering digital experiences quickly and without a traditional steep learning curve,” says Alexei Balaganski, lead analyst, KuppingerCole Analysts AG.  “The platform’s developer environment provides a full set of capabilities expected from an IDE: version control with optional GitHub integration, project management for efficient teamwork, AI assistance and integrated documentation, built-in visual testing tools, and so on.”

Used by thousands of developers worldwide, the latest version of Choreo aims to maximize the productivity of organizations’ development and DevOps teams.  More details can be found at https://wso2.com/choreo
