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.
Windows applications can run on phones, tablets, PCs and beyond. Designing and building your application to take advantage of different screen sizes and resolutions is critical to making beautiful, engaging applications that your customers will love across all their devices.
Having a solid identity strategy for consuming Office 365 services is a must. There are several options for different customers and scenarios, however Microsoft Azure is at the centre of all of them. Leveraging SSO (Single Sign On) with ADFS 3.0 and Web Application Proxies is a common scenario and we’ll show you how this can be delivered exclusively from the cloud without reliance on your traditional on-premises datacentre. High availability and DR are intrinsic in this architecture, and additional options now exist to use password sync as a fallback. Finally we show you how to extend the solution past Office 365 and beyond!
