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 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.
In this session we explore a set of common issues encountered during the Windows 8.1 deployment process, digging as deeply as possible into the root causes and understanding how to troubleshoot similar issues.
