Join this session to learn how Microsoft IT is successfully managing the Application lifecycle in their System Center 2012 Configuration Manager R2 environment with zero touch. Deep technical overview on how Microsoft IT automates LOB application publishing by leveraging System Center Orchestrator, Configuration Manager cmdlets, PowerShell scripts, and Team Foundation Server. This session covers the key stages of the application lifecycle for Windows 8.1, Windows Phone, Windows RT, and iOS – starting with Application object creation, deployment, supersedence, and ending with the retirement/removal of the application object from the environment—all this without the administrator having to lift a finger.
By definition, an app written on the Universal Windows Platform can run across many Windows device families, but this covers an extremely wide range of different hardware capabilities (especially to memory and CPU). If you want your app to be successful on all devices, you need to pay attention to these variations, and tune your app’s features dynamically. This talk will explain how the system applies memory and CPU resource policy, and provides insights into the underlying rationale and internal mechanisms. We’ll also see how the new API surface gives you the tools to make your app successful in the face of widely varying hardware constraints. Speaker: Andrew Whitechapel.
