We live in a world of heterogeneous devices. In this session we’ll discuss the pros and cons of a number of strategies for producing cross-platform applications. Starting with HTML, moving through hybrid apps up to native apps, Mitch will explain the architectural patterns of each approach and explore the use-cases in which each approach is most appropriate. At the end of this session you’ll be much better equipped to decide on the best strategy for internal, B2B and B2C applications that need to be available to the entire audience, regardless of the device they use.
Over the last years, many customers have had to deal with cyber attacks targeted at intellectual property. We have entered a new phase in which criminals unleash destructive attacks, rendering IT environments unusable and effectively halting business. Consumerization of IT and the cloud add inherent tension and security implications to this new reality. How can one deal with data that moves in and out of your datacenters, to unmanaged devices and cloud services not directly under your control? How can you create a cost efficient architecture and plan for prevention, detection, and recovery in a time where cloud and consumerization of IT are high on every CxO's agenda? The presenters of this session have been on the Targeted Attack frontline with enterprise customers over the last years. They explain the threats of targeted attacks and share an architecture model using a data classification model, as well as their field experiences and services you can leverage to deal with prevention, detection and recovery.
Learn how companies can publish their line-of-business apps for deployment to Windows and Windows Phone, and then manage the lifecycles of those apps. The two platforms haven’t yet converged on a single mechanism for doing this, and this session helps you navigate the differences. This session provides overviews of each platform as well as what’s new for 8.1, including policy allowing only certain apps to run on Windows Phone, the ability to remotely install and uninstall apps from a Windows Phone, changes to line-of-business app deployment in Windows 8.1 Update, and more. Also, see how MDM vendors such as Windows Intune choose to abstract many of the differences and service both platforms in a unified way.
