We've had years to grasp traditional middleware acronyms (SOAP, REST, XML), but now along comes mobility with a whole new bowl of alphabet soup: APIs, MBaaS, JSON... How do these new additions differ from their predecessors, and what are they meant to accomplish? More importantly, why should any enterprise care?
This webinar looks at these and other questions, with advice on:
-The limitations of traditional (web) middleware in a mobile world, and impacts on user experience
-Criteria for effective mobile integration with an exploding set of backend data sources (public, enterprise, etc.)
-Cost, performance and security considerations for any mobile middleware tier
Nolan Wright, Co-Founder and CTO of Appcelerator, as he explores how mobile is driving a new tier in enterprise architectures.
These days you can’t step out the front door without being hit by some new statistic confirming the Age of Mobile has arrived. Tablets and phones dwarfing PC shipments? Check. Mobile app projects soon to vastly outnumber traditional application projects? You bet. Mobile phones more ubiquitous than indoor plumbing? Yes, even that too.
What these statistical fireworks really announce is a sea change in the way enterprises – and enterprise IT – must operate. Companies positioned to win the Age of Mobile have grasped the three principles of the era:
- Apps are different from applications.
- APIs are the lifeblood of mobility.
- Analytics eliminate the guesswork in mobile success.
It's been nearly a year since we first looked at the great web/hybrid/native debate, and in true speed-of-mobile fashion, a lot has changed since. For starters, enterprises now see employees as a key mobile constituent, driving an order of magnitude increase in the number of apps required. There's also the release of iOS 7, which brings an explosion in new capabilities - as well as no small amount of re-development dollars if apps are to take full advantage.
Watch this webinar to understand:
- How the mushrooming of employee-facing apps may affect architectural choice
- Best practices for scaling delivery in the face of a growing number of devices, apps and users
- Ways to reduce support costs despite the inevitable 3-4 OS updates, per platform, per year
Michael King, Director of Enterprise Strategy at Appcelerator, leads the charge as we examine how the debate is changing.
Are your apps ready for iOS 7? The new look and feel, coupled with over 1,500 (!) new APIs, make this the most ambitious release of iOS since its initial launch. But the magnitude of change represented by iOS 7, and the swiftness with which users are expected to upgrade, presents a major challenge for organizations and app owners. Current apps will likely need modification, perhaps extensive modification, in order to run properly and effectively on iOS 7.
This webinar will address key questions surrounding iOS 7, including:
- How to ensure the user experience of apps are as good (or better) on the new version
- Risk and mitigation strategies for regressions that might affect app usability, functionality or stability
- Methods to understand if users are experiencing problems in the upgraded app (other than waiting to hear complaints or read bad reviews)
Join Jonathan Rende, Appcelerator's VP of Products, as he helps to chart the course for full iOS 7 readiness.
Nearly 80% of enterprises use Microsoft's SharePoint to store, manage and act upon corporate information. But many employees wonder: Why can't I get the same access from my mobile device?

In a world of apps, the user is king. Those of us raised on client/server and early web may retain certain hard-coded expectations for how systems work and behave. But the mobile generation has a radically different expectation, one that honors users with more of a personal, targeted, and context-aware experience. And "user" here refers to everyone: customer, partner, or employee. Winning the user requires more than just a pretty face on the app — it requires a new breed of analytics.
