WSO2 Federal Systems delivers transformative SOA and distributed computing capabilities to military and government customers based on WSO2 enterprise and cloud middleware

Alexandria, VA – July 29, 2013 – Faced with shrinking budgets in an era of sequestration, public sector organizations seek to rein in the mounting costs and operational burdens of sustaining stovepipe legacy systems based on proprietary interfaces. Increasingly, that means achieving greater efficiencies, improving interoperability, and enhancing operational agility from their IT systems through the adoption of cloud computing and service-oriented architecture (SOA) principles. Too often, however, the time, effort and complexity associated with legacy system transformation have hindered the government acquisitions community’s ability to do so. Today, WSO2 announces a new subsidiary, WSO2 Federal Systems, to address these challenges.

WSO2 Federal Systems will combine open source WSO2 technology with acquisitions program expertise to deliver mission-critical solutions for public sector organizations. Leading WSO2 Federal Systems are CEO Jonathan Marsh, who has served as WSO2 vice president of business development, and Director of Solutions Adam Firestone, who was WSO2 director of defense and government solutions. The business will be based within the Washington, DC Beltway where it will be well situated to serve its US government customer base.

“The government sector is well positioned to leverage the SOA and cloud transformation technologies, IT strategies and lessons learned by private industry. At the same time, there are challenges, requirements and processes unique to the defense and government sectors, knowledge of which is critical to a program’s success,” said Jonathan Marsh, WSO2 Federal Systems CEO. “Through WSO2 Federal Systems, we are combining our award-winning open source cloud, enterprise middleware and implementation successes with Global 1000 companies with deep expertise in the technical, programmatic, and systems engineering arenas to deliver secure, effective and economical solutions tailored to the demands of today’s government organizations.”

WSO2 Federal Systems Consulting Services
WSO2 Federal Systems will provide systems engineering, solutions development, production support and pre-production consulting on the WSO2 platform for US defense, intelligence, law enforcement, and government customers and contractors with an emphasis on:
• SOA
• API management
• Real-time data integration
• Big data analytics
• Advanced enterprise and application security
• Multi-factor authentication
• Policy-based access control
• Mobile and embedded devices
• Cloud and scalability
• Managed agile development

WSO2 Federal Systems Leadership
Jonathan Marsh, WSO2 Federal Systems CEO, previously has served as WSO2 vice president of business development and product design. He has more than 15 years of experience helping to develop, standardize and promote core XML and Web services standards, and he previously served as an active member in the W3C and WS-I working groups and OASIS technical committees. Jonathan first joined WSO2 in 2006 as the director of mashup technologies, leading the design and development of the WSO2 Mashup Server. Previously, Jonathan held product design positions at Microsoft for a decade. Prior to Microsoft, he co-founded and served as design director of Walkabout Software, which Microsoft acquired.

Adam Firestone, WSO2 Federal Systems director of solutions, was formerly WSO2 director of defense and government solutions. A former US Army officer and defense industry IT engineering principal, Adam has led the design and development of critical weapons and command and control systems, as well as spearheading the integration of open source software and principles within the defense enterprise. Prior to joining WSO2, Adam most recently served as principal systems engineer at Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), based in McLean, VA. There, he was responsible for the design and implementation of SOA principles within existing and developmental military response programs, including a major precision-guided weapon and a portable integration platform for joint unmanned systems.

Adam has published four papers on government and military technology adoption in 2013, including:
• “The Revolution in Military Affairs 2.0: Information Dominance and the Democratization of Information Technology,” available at http://wso2.com/whitepapers/the-revolution-in-military-affairs-2-0-information-dominance-and-the-democratization-of-information-technology
