White Paper: 7 Steps to Achieving a Connected Business

A new white paper written by Asanka Abeysinghe, WSO2’s vice president of solutions architecture, examines the seven steps to achieving a connected business. The whitepaper discusses how enterprises can improve their customer and partner relationships and become more agile.

The white paper begins by defining a connected business where an enterprise increases its value proposition by focusing on its areas of expertise and leveraging external services in order to make the user’s experience more productive.

The paper then discusses critical challenges enterprises face in enabling a connected business, such as complex business requirements and quicker release cycles.

Next, the paper explains how to transform an organization into a connected business with a seven-step approach, which starts off by converting business functions to services and then turning those into APIs.

The paper also explores how to connect all the components of a business using WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus (WSO2 ESB) as a connectivity layer in the system, along with other WSO2 products. Additionally, it provides real-life examples of how enterprises are deploying WSO2 ESB, WSO2 Identity Server, and WSO2 Business Activity Monitor to enable a connected business.
