Enterprise mobility is a top priority for Chief Information Officers who must empower employees and reach customers by moving data from backend systems out to apps on mobile devices. This data must flow over inefficient wireless data networks, be consumable by any mobile device, and scale to support millions of users while delivering exceptional performance. Since wireless coverage is inconsistent, apps must store this data offline so users can be productive in the absence of connectivity. Join Rob and learn how to build fast and scalable REST + JSON APIs using the ASP.NET Web API while employing techniques such as data sharing and in-memory caching. On the device, learn how your apps can work with offline data via in-memory NoSQL tables that use LINQ to support the same CRUD operations as relational databases. You’ll walk away from this session with the ability to deliver flexible server solutions that work on-premise or in Azure and device solutions that work with Windows Phones and Tablets.
In this session, we will share a proven adoption methodology, key success factors, best practices, and relevant resources to help drive both rapid and sustained adoption of Lync.
