Digital Transformation: Threat or Opportunity?

Posted by Vinay Babu Yella on 15 Jan, 2019

Digital Transformation is for a company the difference between winning and losing. Companies that were once great are now extinct. For example: Toys "R" Us was once a successful toys store chain, but now out of business after Amazon shook up the retail market with online e-commerce offering customers with greater selection, lower price, and better customer experience. In some cases, much younger companies (for example: Uber, Airbnb, Stripe) are emerging as major disruptors in their industry, using their digital platforms that prove to be a threat to their competitors. Over the past twenty years, it has been proven that the industry disruptors where the first to embrace Digital Transformation, and those other companies that followed were successful by surviving the competition.

Multi-tenant email support in WSO2 Identity server

Posted by Steve Liem on 6 Sep, 2018

I'd like to recall a blogpost that we published in 2016 about how to enable tenant specific SMTP support in WSO2 Identity Server:

Since moving to WSO2IS v5.3.0 onwards a lot of things changed. Using the Axis2 layer to configure email support became a legacy solution. Meaning that there is no guarantee that the email plugin we've published in 2016 will work now. Using the CEP engine integrated with Identity Server is the primary approach chosen by WSO2.

This blogpost will present a new solution for configuring multi-tenant specific SMTP settings for email events triggered by the Identity Server.

Posted by Hans Bot on 7 Jun, 2018
Imagine you're facing chaos, and you need to bring governance, you’d best start introducing some order first. Otherwise, your chances to succeed would be slim at best. With identity governance, this is no different. Bringing structure into your identity and access management practices is a prerequisite for proper control. Before we dive into the details on how to get in control of access to your information sources, let’s have a look at the kind of identity governance challenges many organizations are facing today.

How to crush digitalization using the IT trends of 2018

Posted by Ruben van der Zwan on 19 Dec, 2017

If 2017 was “talk the talk”, 2018 will definitely be “walk the walk”. Last year, the idea of digital transformation was a vague, new promise that was both appreciated and distrusted by the business world. Sure, CEOs, CIOs and IT managers all knew change was coming, but they didn’t think it would be such a great deal. But that was last year. The IT trends of 2017 (including IoT, Blockchain and rising star API) have sunk in, and new legislations like GDPR and PSD2 force companies to re-invent their business. So why not re-invent right now? In this article, I tell you how to crush digitalization using the IT trends of 2018.
