WSO2, the lean enterprise middleware provider, said it has cited by Forrester Research as a leader in “The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Service Bus, Q2 2011” report published on April 25.
The report’s findings were based on a 109-criteria evaluation of both commercial and open source ESB vendors. Significantly, WSO2 scored 4.47 out of a possible 5.00 points for “current offering,” which was based on Forrester’s evaluation of the 100% open source WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus, the company said in a statement.
According to the Forrester ESB Wave report2, “The broad capabilities ESB products have made them a popular choice for meeting general integration needs and supporting efforts to implement a service-oriented architecture.”
The statement quoted Paul Fremantle, WSO2 co-founder and CTO and vice president of the Apache Software Foundation Synapse Project as saying, “We designed our WSO2 ESB with the idea that a lean, adaptive architecture could provide the high performance and flexibility that enterprises need, and today we have customer implementations where WSO2 ESBs are reliably running 800 million-plus messages per day.”
