APIs of Everything: Beyond the Mobile App
When there are billions of connected devices on an Internet of Things, there had better not be a separate app for every kind of thing — and the APIs of things had better be robust languages for real transactions, not just naïve dialects suited for little more than demonstrations. This talk explores the implications for designing APIs that elevate performance of both people and machines.
Leveraging Cloud Computing to Fulfill the Promise of Mobile Applications
Mobile applications strain the definition, architecture, and operations of traditional applications. Instead of the stable software architectures with few client options, operated in static infrastructure topologies, mobile applications change frequently, operate on a large number of devices, and experience erratic user loads. This session will discuss how cloud computing is a fundamental requirement for today's mobile applications. Specific topics addressed include: designing and operating for scale, the role of application APIs, and managing the economics of mobile application infrastructure operations.
Cloud, Mobile and Internet of Things
With the proliferation of mobile devices and sensors, enterprises are presented with newer opportunities by taking advantage of cloud and big data. This discussion introduces the idea of Composable Enterprises, a modern IT approach to capitalize on services enabled by cloud computing. It explains the concept and highlights how it can transform organizations to be more agile and innovative. Modern enterprises have surrounded themselves with sensors and their employees carry mobile phones with multiple sensors everywhere. These sensors give large troves of data which, along with automation, can be used to accelerate innovation. The last part of the talk will highlight how the Composable Enterprise approach allows organizations to take advantage of large volumes of data they collect by leveraging Cloud and DevOps.
Mobility: Empowering User-Centric Businesses
Today, enterprises find themselves in a multi-cloud and multi-device era where employees want to access corporate data, applications, and desktops from the cloud using the mobile device of their choice. More importantly, consumer devices and cloud services now allow employees to do so with or without authorization from corporate IT. This paradigm shift changes the enterprise infrastructure needed to support enterprise mobility without compromising corporate security or control. This trend challenges how enterprises have approached mobility, requiring them to embrace new ways to deliver access and content that leverages the cloud and the computing power of mobile devices to support business objectives. Scott will discuss how VMware customers empower their mobile workforces with transformational technologies that drive business growth.
