WS02 introduces Choreo
Enterprises worldwide are accelerating their digital transformation initiatives, with many starting years earlier than originally planned.  But, too often, these initiatives are hampered by the lack of deep technical expertise required to get projects off the ground and deliver digital products and solutions.  WSO2 (www.wso2.com) addresses this challenge with the introduction of Choreo (www.wso2.com/choreo), the new integration platform as a service (iPaaS) for cloud-native engineering.
 
Now in public beta, Choreo gives organizations a single, all-inclusive platform for creating integrations, services, and APIs; managing APIs; and deploying services and APIs – going from ideas to production in hours.

“Enterprises are increasingly leveraging cloud-native platforms to speed their time to market, scale-out rapidly, and increase agility.  Yet it’s still too hard. It can take months or years to bring digital products into production as developers struggle with integration and the complexity of adopting cloud-native engineering practices and deploying on Kubernetes-based platforms.  We’re removing those roadblocks with Choreo, our next-generation iPaaS for cloud-native engineering,” explains Eric Newcomer, WSO2 CTO.

“Now developers at all skill levels can collaborate in producing enterprise-class code and APIs whether they prefer programming in low-code, code or even no-code using templates – and because it’s an all-inclusive iPaaS, built on proven technology – enterprises can immediately focus on delivering business value.”
 
“We are seeing real traction here in the UK market for our API management and integration solutions as organisztions seek to expand upon the digital transformation efforts they initiated as a result of the pandemic,” added Ricardo Diniz, WSO2 Vice President and General Manager, UK, Spain, and France.

“With our new Choreo integration platform as a service, we are expanding our commitment to supporting UK PLCs and their digital initiatives by managing the complexity, so developers of all skill levels can collaborate in the cloud and bring new solutions to market faster.”

The Choreo iPaaS is the first commercial application of Ballerina (
www.ballerina.io), the only programming language that provides a limitless low code experience using a bidirectional mapping for all source code between its textual syntax and its graphical representation as a sequence diagram.  The result is an easier collaboration among developers with varying skills, as well as source code that is independent of Choreo, which empowers enterprises to maintain full control over their code.
