Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 Founder and CEO, Receives 2022 IEEE TCSVC Research Innovation Award 2022-06-25 02:58:46

The IEEE TCSVC Research Innovation Award recognized Dr. Weerawarana for outstanding technical innovations in the field of services computing that have had a lasting impact

WSO2, a leader in digital transformation technology, today announced that Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, WSO2 founder and CEO, is a recipient of the 2022 IEEE TCSVC Research Innovation Award.

Each year, the IEEE Computer Society Technical Community on Services Computing (TCSVC) awards outstanding individuals and team efforts. The IEEE TCSVC Research Innovation Award recognizes individuals or collaborators whose contributions have significantly influenced the direction of research and development of the field, transferred theory to practice in significant and innovative ways, and/or enabled the delivery of impactful commercial service products/systems/solutions.

“I have been lucky to be at the center of several major software technology waves that have provided opportunities to reshape how technologists build solutions and experiences that improve the way we work, live and play,” said Dr. Weerawarana. “I am deeply honored to be recognized with the 2022 IEEE TCSVC Research Innovation Award, and I look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of how software can support organizations and the people they serve.”

Award Recognizes More Than Three Decades of Innovation

The IEEE TCSVC Research Innovation Award has recognized Dr. Weerawarana for his 30-plus years of innovation, leading the creation of web service and open-source technologies that in many aspects have enabled the API economy and served as the precursor to today’s microservices.

Dr. Weerawarana was a co-inventor and co-author of specifications, such as the Web Services Description Language (WSDL), a game changer in enabling interoperability across formerly disparate environments, and Business Process Execution Language for Web Services (BPEL4WS), laying the technical foundations for service composition. Additionally, he was a contributor to and initiator of the WS-Policy and WS-Addressing original specifications, among others.

Dr. Weerawarana also has been an originator of open-source implementations, such as the Apache Axis2 web service engine, which is seen as a breakthrough in the adoption of service computing. More recently, building on concepts he first introduced with WSDL and BPEL4WS, Dr. Weerawarana invented the Ballerina open-source programming language. Ballerina significantly simplifies the development of distributed applications, especially by orchestrating microservices or endpoints represented by APIs. Additionally, he has shaped open-source development organizationally, most notably through his work with the Lanka Software Foundation (LSF), which he co-founded in 2003.

At the same time, Dr. Weerawarana has helped to lead the commercial application of open-source software through WSO2. Since founding the company in 2005, he has continued to serve as chief architect, driving innovations used by Fortune 500 companies, top universities, and governments worldwide. WSO2’s newest innovation is the Choreo digital platform as a service, which applies fundamentals from BPEL4WS but hides the complexities of service orchestration and empowers non-programming-savvy people to build distributed service-based or API-based applications. Generally available since March 2022, Choreo is the first commercial solution built on the Ballerina language.
