Join the Connected Business Revolution
What do innovative companies have in common?
WSO2, SUSE and Yenlo serve some of the most innovative enterprises around the world, and we’ve found that these successful businesses have a lot in common. Enterprises able to adopt today’s leading technologies and best practices obtain competitive advantage by attracting and serving their customers with greater reach, efficiency, and insight. Characteristic of such thriving enterprises is that they are transforming into a “Connected Business” – employees, partners, customers, and communities working seamlessly together.
Let’s make IT part of the business success.
Mobile-first and API-first design, big data analytics, online store experiences, agile development and operations, open source strategy, and IaaS and PaaS cloud-based services represent huge opportunities to transform IT from a cost-sink to the forefront of business success.

Team up with Yenlo’s experienced consultants to put these systems in place efficiently.
