The new Microsoft Rights Management services (RMS) enables customers to protect their most sensitive information. Some customers want to put this data in the cloud while retaining control over it, while some may want to keep their data on-premises due to concerns about control over their data. Microsoft RMS can work with both these scenarios, enabling them to deploy Azure RMS to work with online and on-premises servers, and allowing them to retain control over their keys and access to documents. In this session we describe how these scenarios are deployed and demonstrate how to quickly set up Azure RMS, how to enable on-premises and cloud-based SharePoint and Exchange to use the service via the connector, and how to deploy Bring your Own Key solutions to protect your root keys.
Whether you call them "Metro apps," "Windows 8 Design-Style apps," "RT apps," or "modern apps," the new class of applications for Windows 8 and later tablets are not only here to stay, they also offer some interesting advantages and challenges for IT pros. Much has been written about modern apps, but 99% of that was written with developers in mind. That makes a certain amount of sense, as no one is going to ask us IT pros to support software that hasn't yet been written, but given that the Windows Store added its 100,000th modern app back in July of 2013, it's reasonable to assert that the time has come for IT pros to know more about the members of the six-figure army. How are they structured? ARE they more secure? Where are they stored? What options do you have to deploy them? What about "sideloading," the method to roll out home-grown line-of-business apps? Join us for an informative, entertaining, and real-world look at the latest crop of Windows apps!
Design guru Tommy Lewis wants your apps to look their best. He emphasizes that attractive apps stand out from the rest, so a focus on design is a must. He describes a "visual" way of thinking, covering what to expect during the design phases of your development and what goals to work towards. Last but not least, he covers design principles that you should think about as you design your apps: authentically digital, more with less, pride in craftsmanship, fast and fluid, and win as one.
