Move beyond the conceptual overview of external data and business connectivity services with a practical implementation. See an external data source configured from scratch and examples of practical uses of the information within SharePoint, including external lists, external data columns, and search. Learn how a source database with millions of rows of data can be added to SharePoint and used easily. This session provides more than a basic overview, with high enough level to cover multiple scenarios of general use.
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.
The Lync Call Quality Methodology (CQM) is a practical approach that applies the broad guidance we have published in the Lync Networking Guide. CQM is a data driven framework backed by SQL queries and an operational process to systematically improve and maintain call quality. CQM was derived from Microsoft and some of our largest customer deployments. CQM was published in v2 of the Networking Guide complete with queries and an updated set of 2010/2013 KHIs. This session will go through the individual components of CQM, describe our recommended process for implementing it, show findings from using CQM and go into detail on how the SQL queries work and how you can customize them for you or your customer's needs.
