WSO2Con EU 2016: Integration for a Tight-fisted CFO


Published on

How do you successfully integrate claim insurance systems with legacy enterprise application integration and back office?
How much do you need to invest?
How fast can you start?
How can you keep the sales portal running to keep your seniors happy?

He will explore a success story where the WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus was introduced to an insurance company. He then explains how new system integration needs require both market research and product evaluation. He finally explains the benefits of using WSO2 which include its easy learning curve (the abundance of documentation and samples), fast time to market, ability to connect everything, reliable cluster processing and more.
