The second day of WSO2Con took a deep dive in the technology with a mixture of customer showcases and technology sessions by WSO2 Engineers. Since we couldn’t attend all the parallel sessions we selected some of the sessions which we will cover in this blog.

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”.

Three cheers for Identity and Access Management

Posted by Ruben van der Zwan on 28 Feb, 2017

Typically, when we talk about digital transformation, we leave out security. It’s just not sexy. The Internet of Things and APIs are, so we rather focus on all the cool things we could do by deploying them. What we tend to forget, though, is that security, and especially Identity and Access Management (IAM), is at the core of every IT breakthrough. The reason for this is very simple, as these measures enable you to safely share your data with other people and systems. And it just so happens that this streamlined data exchange is exactly what digital transformation is about. Three cheers for IAM!
