Press Releases

Welcome to the new Press Releases forum! Our old press release system has been retired but we've moved everything and everyone to a new, shinier home. Enjoy!

A press release must be written for the purpose of announcing something newsworthy. Advertisements, promotions, or anything smelling even vaguely of spam will be deleted. All press releases must be relevant to the development community.

WSO2 User Engagement Server combines powerful server-side capabilities with a store for easy access and the simplicity of visually creating dashboards

Palo Alto, CA – July 22, 2013 – Through the wealth of data generated from Web interactions, mobile devices, and sensors, enterprises have never had more information about their business. The challenge has been gaining the visibility to convert that information into knowledge. With today’s launch of WSO2 User Engagement Server (WSO2 UES), WSO2 provides these organizations a powerful new portal platform for converting volumes of data into valuable business insights.

The comprehensive and 100% open source WSO2 UES enables users to rapidly create visually appealing and engaging Web components for presenting data, such as dashboards, microsites and gadgets. Users have the flexibility to use the built-in Jaggery JavaScript integrated development environment (IDE) for advanced server-side capabilities, as well as HTML, cascading style sheets (CSS), and pre-built gadgets. As a result, the same platform enables business professionals to assemble gadgets and dashboards in minutes and empowers developers to deliver rich microsites for consolidating, monitoring and analyzing enterprise data.

WSO2 UES also features an Enterprise Store that provides users with easy, intuitive access to Open Social Gadgets; third-party data sources; and even other gadgets, microsites and dashboards published there by authorized users. The socially enabled Enterprise Store allows users to rate and comment on the available assets, helping others in the organization to select the resources that best suit their own needs.

“Business agility demands that more people in the enterprise have access to the tools they need to present data in a meaningful, easily accessible way,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 founder and CEO. “With WSO2 User Engagement Server, enterprises now have a single platform that business professionals and developers alike can use to quickly create feature-rich dashboards, microsites and gadgets for viewing, monitoring and analyzing their enterprise information and turn it into valuable insights.”

WSO2 User Engagement Server Features
The fully open source WSO2 User Engagement Server portal platform is built on the same modular, fully componentized OSGi-compliant code base as the award-winning WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform. Like all WSO2 middleware products, it is inherently multi-tenant and cloud-enabled.

Key components of WSO2 UES are the Dashboard Composer, Jaggery IDE, Enterprise Store and UES Site Browser, which are all supported by enterprise-class security.

Dashboard Composer is the interface that lets users create dashboards graphically. With it, non-technical users can simply choose the layout for the dashboard and decide which gadgets they wish to include. The visual dashboard composer also enables these users to set up their own layouts apart from the standard one available in the editor mode.

Jaggery IDE is the open source Web IDE that comes with WSO2 UES and enables developers to create or edit microsites over the Web interface. A pure JavaScript server-side scripting engine, Jaggery combines the strength of JavaScript with the flexibility and freedom of PHP-like scripting environments. It also closes the gap between Web applications and Web services by allowing a developer to create both applications and APIs at the same time.

The Enterprise Store provides a central repository for gadgets, JavaScript libraries, and microsite and dashboard URLs, which developers and users can apply to their own sites. Developers and users also can publish dashboards, microsites and gadgets that they have created with WSO2 UES to the store. Meanwhile, subscribers of these resources can use the built-in social capabilities to rate and comment on them.

UES Site Browser is the interface where users can see the dashboards and microsites they created. This view provides the details of the site’s directory structure and enables all file browser operations. Authorized developers and users can publish their sites to the integrated Enterprise Store from this view.

Enterprise-class Security in WSO2 UES is delivered through identity management functionality that provides out-of-the-box single sign-on (SSO) and enables administrators to apply security policies based on users and user roles.

WSO2 User Engagement Server builds and expands upon the proven WSO2 Gadget Server portal platform first launched in December 2009. With today’s launch, WSO2 UES replaces WSO2 Gadget Server, though WSO2 will continue to support existing versions of WSO2 Gadget Server currently in use.

Availability and Support
WSO2 User Engagement Server is available today as a software download that can run directly on servers or on top of the WSO2 Stratos PaaS foundation; as a WSO2 Cloud Virtual Machine running on the Amazon Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2), Linux Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM), and VMware ESX; and as a hosted service on the WSO2 StratosLive PaaS. As a fully open source solution released under the Apache License 2.0, it does not carry any licensing fees.

WSO2 User Engagement Server is backed by a world-class technical team in which the experts that helped create the software provide support, leading to direct and immediate access to the people with in-depth knowledge of the middleware. WSO2 service and support options include evaluation support, a special QuickStartSM consulting program, development support, and production support.
