Platformer Acquired by Digital Transformation Leader WSO2

Kanchana Wickremasinghe • 6/16/2021

Over the past five years, we built a technology platform on Kubernetes that makes it easier for companies to develop, deploy, and manage containerized workloads securely, reliably, and at scale.

Today I am very excited to announce that we embark on an amazing journey with WSO2. Together, we will continue to empower our customers to innovate, create, deploy, and manage their cloud native apps and APIs securely, reliably, and scalably on Kubernetes.

Following the acquisition of Platformer by WSO2, we will integrate the Platformer Console with WSO2’s next-generation integration platform as a service (iPaaS) Choreo, which was announced today https://wso2.com/about/news/wso2-acquires-platformer/, with the union of our very own enterprise-grade, cloud native application platform.
