With a new generation of highly componentised, lean middleware emerging, IT professionals have unprecedented flexibility for customising their IT projects to meet the specific needs of the enterprise. However, more choice also opens the door to more questions about the best ways to design applications and services.

To help guide IT architects and software developers, WSO2 has launched the WSO2 Solution Architecture Blog. Authored by WSO2’s solution architects, the blog offers insights based on real-world customer implementations. Among the IT issues that the blog will address are: Should I build a shared-nothing model? Do I need to separate my data services layer from my integration layer? What is the value of policy-based entitlement? What cloud architectures are being adopted for large-scale, high-volume systems? Answers to such questions include both discussions and diagrams to illustrate architectural approaches.

Recent architectural blog posts focus on adding the dynamism of events to a master data management solution architecture, defining a generic API, and the role of governance in effective identity management.
