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 video, we talk with Dominic Pease, part of the winning team from the Build 2012 Hackathon. Dominic and his team at ResNova Software have just released a beta of Inkredible Memories for Windows and Windows Phone. Check out the demo to see how the app provides a real-time sharing of content including videos, ink, and photos at events like conferences, weddings, sporting events, and more.
Microsoft Azure offers many new business scenarios and solutions that are difficult to implement using traditional corporate environments. One of the most dynamically developing approaches is the concept of Big Data. When we talk about Big Data, everyone understands it differently. Despite this, everyone would probably agree that we are talking about large volumes of data. From this report, you will learn about different ways to use Microsoft Azure in this context.
